Let the volume of ethane in mixture = x litre
Volume of ethane = (40 - x) litre
Combustion reactions f ethane and ethane are :
(i) C2H6(g) + 3 1/2 O2 (g) 2CO2 (g) + 3H2O(l)
or 2C2H6(g) 4CO2(g) + 6H2O(l)
(ii) C2H4(g) + 3O2(g) 2CO2 (g) + 2H2O(l)
Volume of O2 required for complete combustion of ethane
= 7x/2 [For x litres]
Volume of O2 required for complete combustion of ethane
= (40 - x) * 3 [For (40 - x)L]
Total volume of O2 required = 7x/2 + (40 - x)3 l
Calculation of number of moles (n),
P = 1 atm, V = 7x/2 + (40 - x)3 l ; R = 0.082 l atm K-1 mol-1;
T = 400 K
Since n = PV/RT = 1*[7x/2 +(40 - x)3]/0.082 *400 = 7x +(40 -x)6/2 *0.082 *400
Mass of n moles of O2 [7x +(40 -x)6 2 * 0.082 * 400] * 32 = 130
or 130 = [7x +6 240 6x/65.6] * 32
=> 8528 = 32x + 240 * 32 => 32x = 848 => or x = 848/32 = 26.5
Hence mole fraction (%) of ethane = 26.5/40 * 100 = 66.25%
Mole fraction (%) of ethane = 33.75%

TIPS/Formulae:
(i) He does not react with oxygen.
(ii) KOH absorbs only CO2.
NOTE : When the mixture of CO, CH4 and He gases (20 ml) are exploded by an electric
discharge with excess of O2, He gas remain as such and the other reactions involved are :
CO(g) + 1/2 O2(g) CO2(g) ..(i)
CH4(g) + 2O2(g) CO2(g) + 2H2O (l) ..(ii)
Let the volumes of CO and CH4 to be a ml and b ml in the mixture then
Volume of He gas = [20 (a + b)] ml
For the initial contraction of 13 ml
For the initial contraction of 13 ml,
Volume of left hand side in the above reactions 13 = volume
or right hand side.
[20 (a +b)] + (a + 1/2 a) + (b + 2b) 13
= [20 (a + 2b)] + a + b [neglect the volume of H2O (l)]
(Since for gases, volume no. of moles)
1/2 a + 2b = 13 or a + 4b = 26 .(iv)
NOTE THIS STEP : The CO2 produced above in reactions (ii) & (iii), (a + b) ml, reacts with
KOH sol for a further contraction of 14 ml.
CO2(g) + 2KOH(l) K2 CO3 (l) + H2O(l)
(a + b) ml
a + b = 14 .(v)
Solving (iv) & (v) we get, a = 10ml &b = 4 ml
CH4 = 4/20 * 100 = 20%, CO = 10/20 * 100 = 50%

Real gas equation for one mole is given as:
(P + a/V2) (V - b) = RT or (P + a/V2) = RT/V b
=> P = RT/V b a/V2 = Rt/V(1 b/V) a/V2
=> PV = RT (1 b/V)-1 a/V

(a) d = 0.36 kg m-3 = 0.36 g/L
(i) From Grahams Law of diffusion

= 1.33 =
Mv = 32/(1.33)2 = 18.09;
Where Mv = MW of the vapour
(ii) Thus, 0.36g = 0.36/18.09 mol
0.36/18.09 mol occupies 1 L volume, so 1 mol occupies
18.09/0.36 L = 50.25L
Thus, molar volume of vapour = 50.25 L
Assuming ideal behavior the volume of the vapour can be calculated by
V1/T1 = V2/T2 => 22.4 * 500/273 = 41.025L
(iii) Compressibility factor (Z)
= (PV)obs/(PV)ideal = 1 *50.25/1 *41.025 = 1.224
(iv) Z is greater than unity, hence it is the short range repulsive force that would dominate.
