**Specific volume**.

**Specific volume**for an ideal

**gas**is also equal to the

**gas**constant (R) multiplied by the temperature and then divided by the pressure multiplied by

**molar**mass of that ideal

**gas**.

Considering this, how do you find the specific volume of a mixture?

To **calculate specific volume** you need to **know the volume** (V) and the mass (m). **Specific volume** equals **volume** divided by mass. Typically, **volume** is measured in cubic meters (m3), and mass is measured in kilograms. **Specific volume** is then calculated as **volume** divided by mass.

Likewise, how do you find the volume of a gas? **Molar volume of gases**

- volume = 0.5 × 24 = 12 dm
^{3} - Remember that 1 dm
^{3}= 1 000 cm^{3}so the volume is also 12 000 cm^{3} - The equation can be rearranged to find the number of moles, if the volume of gas at rtp is known:
- number of moles = volume of gas at rtp ÷ 24.

Keeping this in view, how do you find the gas constant of a mixture?

The specific **gas constant** of a **gas** or a **mixture** of **gases** (R specific ) is given by the molar **gas constant** divided by the molar mass (M) of the **gas** or **mixture**. R(specific) = R/M. reference- **Gas constant** - Wikipedia.

What is specific air volume?

**Specific volume** is defined as the total **volume** of dry **air** and water vapor mixture per kg of dry **air** and water vapor (SI-units). The **specific volume** can be expressed as: v = V / m_{a} + m_{w} (11)
