Do any of you know if there are any practice tests for Density Lab?
syo_astro's SSSS test on the test exchange

(although there were rule changes between now and then)

Yes. Very. Although nothing complicated, more like multiplication and division.

Are there certain tools or materials I need to know how to use for this event?

Probably just know how to use a ruler or read a graduated cylinder.

What is 1 mol of gas at STP equal too?

The wiki says that its 22.71 L. https://scioly.org/wiki/index.php/Densi ... ro.27s_Law
Simply looking it up, says its 22.4 L.

Which do I believe?

Thanks,

22.4 L / mol is the value for an ideal gas (calculated from PV=nRT). A calculation that better approximates a real gas, such as the van der Waals equation, may have a different value - I suspect that's where 22.71 comes from. In general, I would recommend using 22.4 since it's more commonly cited. see the next post

The 22.71 L/mol uses 1 bar for STP (used by IUPAC since 1982), whereas 22.41 L/mol uses 1.01325 kPa for STP (used before 1982).

If in doubt, be sure to state the specific conditions for STP that you are using.
