# 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

Update:

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
