Butane's Molar Mass
Butane is a colorless gas with the molecular formula of C6H10 and is considered to be an Alkane. An Alkane is when the compound is formed by single bonds connecting the carbons and hydrogens. Butane was discovered by Dr. Walter Snellings in Pittsburg and he gas is used for cigarette lighters, heaters, stove fuels, and other heating appliances. The accepted value for the molar mass of butane is 58.124 g/mol.
We tested the accepted value by calculating the molar mass of butane in a butane cigarette lighter. We took a beaker, and submerged it into water. Then we measured the mass of the cigarette lighter, and then slowly released butane gas bubbles into the beaker so that the bubbles collected at the top, where there was no air. We recorded the initial volume of water, then equalized the pressure inside and outside the beaker until the
