STP = standard Temperature and pressure

This is T = 0 deg Celcius (273.15 K)

and P = 1.0 atm

At STP 1 mole of any ideal gas has a volume of 22.4 L. So keeping that in mind many of these questions can be done quite easily

1. Determine the volume of a container that holds 2.4 mol of gas as STP.

Since 1 mole has a volume of 22.4 L

Then Volume of 2.4 mol = 22.4 L/mol x 2.4 mol

= 53.76 L

= 54 L (2 sig figs)

2. What size container do you need to hold 0.0459 mol N2 gas at STP?

1 mol = 22.4 L

So 0.0459 mol occupies (22.4 L/mol x 0.0459 mol)

= 1.02816 L

= 1.03 L (3 sig figs)

Many of the rest of the questions need to use the gas equation

PV = nRT

P = Pressure

T = temp, must always be in Kelvin

V = volume

n = moles

R = constant. This is different for different units of P and V

you can look R up here

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gas_constant

4. If the pressure exerted by a gas at 25 degrees celsius in a volume of 0.044 L is 3.81 atm, how many moles of gas are present?

n = PV / RT

P = 3.81 atm

V = 0.044 L

T = 25 deg C = 298.15 K

R = 0.0821 L atm mol^-1 K^-1 (because P is in atm and V is in L)

n = (3.81 atm x 0.044 L) / (298.15 K x 0.0821 Latmmol^-1K^-1)

n = 0.00684857 mol

n = 0.0068 mol (2 sig figs)

5. Dtermine the celsius temperature of 2.49 moles of gas contained in a 1.00-L vessel at a pressure of 143 kPa.

Now, when you look up R you will see that there is no R value that fits for P = kPa and V = L. So you need to convert one of these values to a unit that fits. I would convert 143 kPa to atm, and then use R = L atm mol^-2 K^-1

Also remember the equation needs the temp in Kelvin, so you will have to convert to celcius at the end. deg C = Kelvin - 273,15

T = PV/nR

P = 143 kPa = 1.411 atm

http://www.unit-conversion.info/pressure.html

n = 2.49 mol

V = 1.00 L

R = 0.0821 L atm mol^-1 K^-1

T = 1.411 atm x 1.00 L / 2.49 mol x 0.0821 Latmmol^-1K^-1

T = 6.902 Kelvin

T = -266 deg C

7. What is the pressure in atmospheres of a 0.108-mol sample of helium gas at a temperature of 20.0 degrees celsius if its volume is 0.505 L?

P = nRT / V

V = 0.505 L

n = 0.108 mol

R = 0.0821 L atm mol^-1 K^-1

T = 20 deg C = 293.15 K

P = 0.108 mol x 0.0821 Latmmol^-1K^-1 x 293.15 K / 0.505 L

P = 5.15 atm

So, just manipulate the equation to get the right property out the front.

Make sure you are using the right units. And have a go at the rest of them.
