# Thread: Chemistry Problem, Help!!

1. ## Chemistry Problem, Help!!

Ok i have this Chem. problem it sound easy but for some reason i can't get it, it says:
A flask holds a total of 402.5 Grams of water at 293.4 K. What is the volume of the flask?!
P.S. using the Ideal gas law PV=nRT would result in a big unrealistic #.
if you gonna try to convert the 402.5 Grams to moles then here is the molar mass for the water 18.02 g/mol.

LOL...I couldn't do that for you now if I tried....Fvkkin Horny Goat Weed.
Anyway, just postin' cause it's your thread.
<--How I look right now

lucky ass bastard

4. a+b=c duh!

5. 1g is by definition the amount that 1 cubic centimeter of water weighs. your flask is 402.5mL

EDIT: curiously, why were you using the ideal gas law for liquid water?

is that conversion possible?!

actually no, at ~20C not 4C so its 0.9982g/ml

so it would be 401.8ml

small, but enough to get the problem wrong

9. I stand corrected

is it an online assignment? if it is, i can assure you it is satan himself in disguise of chemistry. fucking bastards

11. yea, what syma said

ya its like..just a small amount, but i would have to think since he gave you a temp that it must be the point of the problem

thats actualy why water is so special, its density is highest at 4C where as most liquids density increases with temp decrease to a solid max

thats why ice floats

good thing or we would have like frozen oceans and shit and it would be a mess

you got it right, u gotta use the Water's Density which is the # you gave at the Equation:
D=M/V

it had crossed my mind that I was probably off a bit b/c he had listed a temp, but to be perfectly honest, I wasn't about to look up nor did I recall waters density at a given temp. I like to round things sometimes. But water is cool like that, gotta love the H-bonds and whatnot.
