Standard temperature and pressure conditions...?
What are standard temperature and pressure conditions for gases?
A) 0 C and 0 torr
B) 0 K and 760 torr
C) -273 C and 1 atm
D) 0 C and 760 torr
I think it's C, but i'm not too sure. Ideas?

It is d for IUPAC ( International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry and the National Institute of Standards and Technology).
0°C is 273.15°K, and 760 torr is 1 atmosphere. See citation given below!
Hope that helped!

standard temperature and pressure (STP) is 0 °C and 1 atm.
1 atom = 760 torr
0 °C = -273K
therefore the answer is D) 0 C and 760 torr

-273 C is 0 K, which is not a very standard temperature. no pressure is also not a very standard pressure. by process of elimination, it must be D. I actually didn't know that 0 C was the standard temp; i thought it was 25 C. You learn something every day!

It can also be written as 273.15 K and 1 atm
I think that is why you may have been confused about C

0 deg. C and 1 atmos. pressure - do 'D'.Source(s): .
