# How many moles of N2 at STP?

how many moles of n2 gas occupy a volume of 11.2 liters at stp?

The equation is PV/RT=N right?

At STP :

pressure = 1 atm and T = 273 K

n = pV/RT = 1 atm x 11.2 / 0.08206 x 273 =0.5

because 0.08206 x 273 = 22.4

the volume occupied by one mole at STP = nRT/p = 1 x 22.4 / 1 = 22.4

this means that one mole of any gas at STP occupies 22.4 L

so you can solve this question in this way

moles = 11.2 L/ 22.4/L/mol= 0.5

hope helps

the usual symbol for amount in moles is n not N

The trap with PV/RT is the units. SI base units are : Pascals, m3, J mol-1 K-1 and K

More simply 1 mole of gas molecules at STP occupies 22.4 litres so you have .5 mol N2

STP potential "usual Temperature and rigidity". This corresponds to 273K and 1atm. Use the equation PV = nRT, with the consistent R = 0.0821 (a million)V = (a million)(0.0821)(273) V = 0.0821 * 273 V = 22.4133L
