Both Jacques Charles and Joseph Louis Guy-Lussac were avid
balloonists. In his original flight in 1783, Jacques Charles
used a balloon that contained approximately 31,150 L of H2.
He generated the H2 using the reaction between iron and hydrochloric
Fe1s2 + 2 HCl1aq2 ¡ FeCl21aq2 + H21g2
How many kilograms of iron were needed to produce this
volume of H2 if the temperature was 22 °C?
