During the volcanic eruption of Mt. Pelee in 1902, an incredibly hot "burning cloud" rolled down the mountain and incinerated the town of Saint-Pierre. From the damage done, the temperature in the cloud was estimated at 700°C. If the air temperature was 20°C and a mole of air is 29 grams, estimate the molecular weight of the gas in the "burning cloud" that made it heavier than the surrounding air. (As a follow-on, estimate the most probable composition of the cloud. Some typical volcanic gases are H2S, SO2, H2SO4, CO2, NO.)
