the density of a gas relative to the density of hydrogen
The ratio of the density of a gas to the density of hydrogen at the same temperature and pressure.
Vapour density is the density of a vapour in relation to that of hydrogen. It may be defined as mass of a certain volume of a substance divided by mass of same volume of hydrogen. vapour density = mass of n molecules of gas / mass of n molecules of hydrogen Therefore: vapour density = molar mass of gas / molar mass of H2 vapour density = molar mass of gas / 2.016 vapour density = ~½ × molar mass
