3. The unknown gas A2B forms according to the reaction below.
A(s) + B2(s) → A2B(g)
If 3.0 mol of A are reacted with 20.0 g of B2 (molar mass of B2 is 18.0 g/mol) in a sealed
container at STP, what volume would A2B occupy?
What would happen to the volume of the gas if the temperature of the container decreased while
pressure remained constant? Explain your answer in terms of the Kinetic Molecular Theory.

4. Answer the following questions about a 0.35 M solution of HCN
a. Would you classify this solution as acidic or basic?
b. Is HCN considered strong or weak? How did you know?
c. How would you calculate the pH of the solution?
d. What would happen if 150.0 mL of 0.65 M NaOH was added to 150.0 mL of the
HCN solution? Draw a particulate level diagram showing what is in the solution of
just HCN and just NaOH before the reaction, and after they are mixed.
