ADVANCED CHEMISTRY PROBLEM: CAN YOU SOLVE?
Q) How many liters of CO2(g), measured at 24.5oC and 748 mmHg, are produced as a 10.0 g sample of CH3COCH2COOH decomposes for 575 min? (Ignore the aqueous solubility of CO2(g).) Ignore the aqueous solubility of CO2. The half life of the CH3COCH2COOH is 144 mins
Btw CH3COCH2COOH is first order decomposition

CH3COCH2COOH (aq) → CH3COCH3 (aq) + CO2 (g)
This first-order decomposition has a half-life of 144 min.
Use the rate constant and the first-order concentration-time equation to determine the reactant concentration at the given time.
V = 2.28 L
