**QUESTION:**

What is the density (in \(\mathrm{g} / \mathrm{L}\) ) of uranium hexafluoride \(\left(\mathrm{UF}_{6}\right)\) at 779 \(\mathrm{mmHg}\) and \(62^{\circ} \mathrm{C}\) ?

**ANSWER:**

Step 1 of 2

Here we have to calculate the density (in \(g / \mathrm{L}\) ) of uranium hexafluoride \(\left(\mathrm{UF}_{6}\right)\)

In this question it has been given that, uranium hexafluoride has

Pressure \((\mathrm{P})=779 \mathrm{~mm} \mathrm{Hg}=779 \mathrm{~mm} \mathrm{Hg} / 760 \mathrm{~mm} \mathrm{hg} \mathrm{atm}^{-1}=1.025 \mathrm{~atm}\)

Temperature \((\mathrm{T})=62^{\circ} \mathrm{C}=273+62=335 \mathrm{~K}\)

Molecular mass of \(\mathrm{UF}_{6}=352.02 \mathrm{~g} / \mathrm{mol}\)
