I was trying to work out a method of working out the volume of CO^2 in a
cylinder from a given weight, i assume the weights are fairly accurate.
Does anyone if my method (on the following paragraph ) know if it is
Taking the assumption that 1 mole of CO^2 will occupy 24 litres of
space at STP.
So when one mole of CO^2 weighs 44 grams (0.044 Kg) you must divide
the mass of gas in the cylinder by the weight of one mole of CO^2 and
then multiply the result by 24
So a 600g (0.6 Kg) cylinder of CO^2 should contain 327.27 litres
