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

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

Does anyone know what materials we need for the density lab?

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,
Bob

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.
