Potassium metal will react with a hydrochloric acid solution to produce hydrogen gas and an aqueous solution of potassium chloride as described below:
2 K(s) + 2 H1Cl1 (aq) --> 1 H2 (g) + 2 K1Cl1 (aq)
If I collect the hydrogen gas that is produced from completely reacting all 32.5 grams of potassium (assuming excess amount of hydrochloric acid), what is the volume of the container. Assume that the temperature is 103°C and the pressure is 2.41E3 mmHg?
