One industrial synthesis of acetylene, a gas used as a raw material for making countless synthetic drugs, dyes, and plastics, is the addition of water to calcium carbide.

                        CaC2(s)  +     2 H2O(l)  -------->  Ca(OH)2(aq)   +   C2H2(g)

A steel cylinder contains neon at a pressure of 101.325 kPa and a temperature of 25oC.  The cylinder survives a fire in which the temperature reaches 800oC.  What would be the internal pressure of the cylinder. (Expansion of the metal cylinder will increase the volume slightly but will be considered negligible.)  Express the result in atmospheres and MPa.

12.
A sample of 248 mL of wet nitrogen gas was collected over water at a pressure of 98.13 kPa and a temperature of 21.0oC.  (The vapour pressure of water at 21oC is 2.49 kPa.)  The nitrogen was produced by the reaction of sulfamic acid, HNH2SO3, with 425 mL of a solution of sodium nitrite according to the following reaction.

         NaNO2(aq)  +   HNH2SO3(aq)  ---->  N2(g)  +  NaHSO4(aq)  +  H2O(l)

    5 H2O2  +   2 KMnO4  +  3 H2SO4  --->  5 O2  +  2 MnSO4  +  K2SO4  +  8 H2O

What is the minimum number of millilitres of 0.125 M KMnO4 solution required to prepare 375 mL of dry O2 when the gas column is measured at 22
oC and 98.39 kPa.  The gas is collected over water.  PH2O@22oC = 2.67 kPa

14.
The density of a certain gas at 27oC and 98.66 kPa is 2.53 g/L.  Assuming that the gas behaves in an ideal manner, calculate its molecular mass.

15.
A certain gas is found to have a density of 0.16 g/L at 25oC and 99.34 kPa. What is the molecular mass of the gas?

16.
An explosion occurs as a result of a rapid chemical reaction attended by the formation of a large volume of gas.  The equation for the detonation of nitroglycerine is:

       4  C3H5(NO3)3(l)  ------>   12 CO2(g)  + 10 H2O(l)  +  6 N2(g)  +  O2(g)

52 grams of nitroglycerine is packed into the inside of a hand grenade.  At the moment of explosion, the nitroglycerine reaches a temperature of 700
oC.  If the volume of the inside of the hand grenade is 200 mL, what is the pressure in atmospheres just before the metal grenade case fractures into shrapnel?
