8 Opening thoughts… Have you ever: Seen a hot air balloon? Had a soda bottle spray all over you? Baked (or eaten) a nice, fluffy cake? These are all examples of gases at work! NEXTPREVIOUS MAIN MENU

9 Properties of Gases You can predict the behavior of gases based on the following properties: NEXTPREVIOUS MAIN MENU Pressure Volume Amount (moles) Temperature Lets review each of these briefly…

10 NEXTPREVIOUS MAIN MENU Pressure Volume Amount (moles) Temperature You can predict the behavior of gases based on the following properties:

11 Pressure Pressure is defined as the force the gas exerts on a given area of the container in which it is contained. The SI unit for pressure is the Pascal, Pa. If youve ever inflated a tire, youve probably made a pressure measurement in pounds (force) per square inch (area). NEXTPREVIOUS MAIN MENU

12 NEXTPREVIOUS MAIN MENU Pressure Volume Amount (moles) Temperature You can predict the behavior of gases based on the following properties:

13 Volume Volume is the three-dimensional space inside the container holding the gas. The SI unit for volume is the cubic meter, m 3. A more common and convenient unit is the liter, l. Think of a 2-liter bottle of soda to get an idea of how big a liter is. (OK, how big two of them are…) NEXTPREVIOUS MAIN MENU

14 NEXTPREVIOUS MAIN MENU Pressure Volume Amount (moles) Temperature You can predict the behavior of gases based on the following properties:

15 Amount (moles) Amount of substance is tricky. As weve already learned, the SI unit for amount of substance is the mole, mol. Since we cant count molecules, we can convert measured mass (in kg) to the number of moles, n, using the molecular or formula weight of the gas. By definition, one mole of a substance contains approximately x particles of the substance. You can understand why we use mass and moles! NEXTPREVIOUS MAIN MENU

16 NEXTPREVIOUS MAIN MENU Pressure Volume Amount (moles) Temperature You can predict the behavior of gases based on the following properties:

17 Temperature Temperature is the measurement with which youre probably most familiar (and the most complex to describe completely). For these lessons, we will be using temperature measurements in Kelvin, K. NEXTPREVIOUS MAIN MENU The Kelvin scale starts at Absolute 0, which is °C. To convert Celsius to Kelvin, add

18 How do they all relate? Some relationships of gases may be easy to predict. Some are more subtle. Now that we understand the factors that affect the behavior of gases, we will study how those factors interact. NEXTPREVIOUS MAIN MENU

19 How do they all relate? Some relationships of gases may be easy to predict. Some are more subtle. Now that we understand the factors that affect the behavior of gases, we will study how those factors interact. PREVIOUS MAIN MENU Lets go!

20 Lesson 2: Boyles Law This lesson introduces Boyles Law, which describes the relationship between pressure and volume of gases. NEXT MAIN MENU

21 Boyles Law This law is named for Charles Boyle, who studied the relationship between pressure, p, and volume, V, in the mid-1600s. Boyle determined that for the same amount of a gas at constant temperature, p * V = constant This defines an inverse relationship: when one goes up, the other comes down. NEXTPREVIOUS MAIN MENU pressure volume

22 Boyles Law This law is named for Charles Boyle, who studied the relationship between pressure, p, and volume, V, in the mid-1600s. He determined that for the same amount of a gas at constant temperature, p * V = constant This defines an inverse relationship: when one goes up, the other comes down. NEXTPREVIOUS MAIN MENU pressure volume

23 What does Boyles Law mean? p * V = constant Suppose you have a cylinder with a piston in the top so you can change the volume. The cylinder has a gauge to measure pressure, is contained so the amount of gas is constant, and can be maintained at a constant temperature. A decrease in volume will result in increased pressure. Hard to picture? Lets fix that! NEXTPREVIOUS MAIN MENU

24 Boyles Law at Work… Doubling the pressure reduces the volume by half. Conversely, when the volume doubles, the pressure decreases by half. NEXTPREVIOUS MAIN MENU

25 Application of Boyles Law Boyles Law can be used to predict the interaction of pressure and volume. If you know the initial pressure and volume, and have a target value for one of those variables, you can predict what the other will be for the same amount of gas under constant temperature. Lets try it! NEXTPREVIOUS MAIN MENU

26 Application of Boyles Law p 1 * V 1 = p 2 * V 2 p 1 = initial pressure V 1 = initial volume p 2 = final pressure V 2 = final volume If you know three of the four, you can calculate the fourth. NEXTPREVIOUS MAIN MENU

27 Application of Boyles Law p 1 * V 1 = p 2 * V 2 p 1 = 1 KPa V 1 = 4 liters p 2 = 2 KPa V 2 = ? Solving for V 2, the final volume equals 2 liters. So, to increase the pressure of 4 liters of gas from 1 KPa to 2 KPa, the volume must be reduced to 2 liters. NEXTPREVIOUS MAIN MENU

28 Boyles Law: Summary Pressure * Volume = Constant p 1 * V 1 = p 2 * V 2 With constant temperature and amount of gas, you can use these relationships to predict changes in pressure and volume. NEXTPREVIOUS MAIN MENU

29 Lesson 2 Complete! This concludes Lesson 2 on Boyles Law! PREVIOUS MAIN MENU Click the Main Menu button below, then select Lesson 3 to learn about how temperature fits in.

30 Lesson 3: Charles Law This lesson introduces Charles Law, which describes the relationship between volume and temperature of gases. NEXT MAIN MENU

31 Charles Law This law is named for Jacques Charles, who studied the relationship volume, V, and temperature, T, around the turn of the 19 th century. He determined that for the same amount of a gas at constant pressure, V / T = constant This defines a direct relationship: an increase in one results in an increase in the other. NEXTPREVIOUS MAIN MENU volume temperature

32 What does Charles Law mean? V / T = constant Suppose you have that same cylinder with a piston in the top allowing volume to change, and a heating/cooling element allowing for changing temperature. The force on the piston head is constant to maintain pressure, and the cylinder is contained so the amount of gas is constant. An increase in temperature results in increased volume. Hard to picture? Lets fix it (again)! NEXTPREVIOUS MAIN MENU

33 Charles Law at Work… As the temperature increases, the volume increases. Conversely, when the temperature decreases, volume decreases. NEXTPREVIOUS MAIN MENU

34 Application of Charles Law Charles Law can be used to predict the interaction of temperature and volume. If you know the initial temperature and volume, and have a target value for one of those variables, you can predict what the other will be for the same amount of gas under constant pressure. Lets try it! NEXTPREVIOUS MAIN MENU

35 Application of Charles Law V 1 / T 1 = V 2 / T 2 V 1 = initial volume T 1 = initial temperature V 2 = final volume T 2 = final temperature If you know three of the four, you can calculate the fourth. NEXTPREVIOUS MAIN MENU

36 Application of Charles Law NEXTPREVIOUS MAIN MENU V 1 / T 1 = V 2 / T 2 V 1 = 2.5 liters T 1 = 250 K V 2 = 4.5 liters T 2 = ? Solving for T 2, the final temperature equals 450 K. So, increasing the volume of a gas at constant pressure from 2.5 to 4.5 liters results in a temperature increase of 200 K.

37 Charles Law: Summary Volume / Temperature = Constant V 1 / T 1 = V 2 / T 2 With constant pressure and amount of gas, you can use these relationships to predict changes in temperature and volume. NEXTPREVIOUS MAIN MENU

38 Lesson 3 Complete! This concludes Lesson 3 on Charles Law! PREVIOUS MAIN MENU Click the Main Menu button below, then select Lesson 4 to put all the pieces together with the Ideal Gas Law.

39 Lesson 4: Ideal Gas Law This lesson combines all the properties of gases into a single equation. NEXT MAIN MENU

40 Ideal Gas Law Combining Boyles and Charles laws allows for developing a single equation: P*V = n*R*T P = pressure V = volume n = number of moles R = universal gas constant (well get to that in a minute…) T = temperature NEXTPREVIOUS MAIN MENU

41 Ideal Gas Law P*V = n*R*T This is one of the few equations in chemistry that you should commit to memory! By remembering this single equation, you can predict how any two variables will behave when the others are held constant. NEXTPREVIOUS MAIN MENU

42 Gas Constant The Ideal Gas Law as presented includes use of the Universal Gas Constant. The value of the constant depends on the units used to define the other variables. For the purposes of this lesson, we will use the equation only to predict gas behavior qualitatively. Specific calculations and units will be part of our classroom work. NEXTPREVIOUS MAIN MENU

43 Putting p*V=n*R*T to Work After using Boyles and Charles law for predicting gas behavior, use of the Ideal Gas Law should be relatively straightforward.
