(C) 5.42Å                                             (D) 542Å

Solution:          b = 4Vm

(Vm is the volume occupied by one mole of gas)

or 24 = 4 ´ N0 ´ pr3

or r =

= 1.355 ´ 10–8 cm

\ d = 2r = 2 ´ 1.355 ´ 10–8 cm

                        = 2.71Å

Problem 10:    the density of phosphorus vapour at 310°C and 775 torr is 2.64g dm–3. What is the molecular formula of phosphorus?

(A) P                                                    (B) P2

(C) P4                                                  (D) P8


or M =

Put d = 2.64gm dm–3

R= 0.0821 dm3 atm K–1 mol–1

P = atm

and T = 310 + 273 = 583K

We get M = 123.9g mol–1

No. of P atoms in a molecule

= = 3.99» 4

Thus the molecular formula of phosphorus = P4
