how to find the volume of 11 grams of CO2 gas.
-All gas volumes are measured at RTP (25 degress celcius and 101.3 kPa)
-Molar volume 24.47 at RTP
well i don't really understand this I have a crappy teacher who didn't teach us and just said "do it"
This is about moles
The title of the book says: Introduction to Basic Stoichiometric calculation
I did the question and working out but there are no answers so I wanted to see if my answers were right

The unit of Molar volume is L/mol so at RTP, the molar volume is 24.47 L/mol. To get the volume of the CO2 gas, we have to multiply the molar volume with the moles of CO2.
Moles of CO2 = mass CO2/molar mass CO2
Moles of CO2 = 11 grams CO2/44 grams mol-1 CO2
Moles of CO2 = 0.25 moles CO2
Volume of CO2 gas = Molar Volume (at RTP) x moles of CO2
Volume of CO2 gas = 24.47 L/mole x 0.25 moles
Volume of CO2 gas = 6.1175 L = 6.1 Liters
