The air inside a hot-air balloon has a temperature of 387 K and a pressure of 103.3 kPa, the same as that of the air outside. Using the molar composition of air as , , and , find the density of the air inside the balloon. Use a value of 28.0 g/mol for the molar mass of , 32.0 g/mol for the molar mass of , and 39.3 g/mol for the molar mass of .
A cubic container of volume 2.25 L holds 0.750 mol of nitrogen gas at a temperature of . What is the magnitude of the force exerted on one wall of the container by the gas?
