Chapter 12 Gas Behavior

The Beginning The first gas studied was air.
The studies were very important to understanding gas behavior because: Air is a mixture of gases. It still behaved as one gas. So…all gases, under similar conditions, behave similarly

Kinetic-Molecular Theory of Gases
Assumes gas particles are in constant motion Used to explain gas behavior Based on five assumptions

Kinetic-Molecular Theory of Gases
Assumption #1 Gases consist of large numbers of tiny particles whose sizes are negligible in comparison to their distance from each other. Translation: Gas molecules are very small and far apart, giving the gas a low density and the property of compressibility

Kinetic-Molecular Theory of Gases
Assumption #2 Collisions between gas particles and collisions between gas particles and the walls of the container are elastic. Translation: No kinetic energy is lost in the collisions; it is transferred

Kinetic-Molecular Theory of Gases
Assumption #3 Particles of gas are continually, rapidly, and randomly moving, thereby possessing kinetic energy. Translation: Gas particles are not attracted to each other because their kinetic energy is too strong; gas particles never stop; they are always moving

Kinetic-Molecular Theory of Gases
Assumption #4 Gas particles have no forces of attraction or repulsion between them. Translation: Gas particles will not “stick” together when they collide; they bounce off each other

Kinetic-Molecular Theory of Gases
Assumption #5 The temperature of the gas affects the average kinetic energy of gas particles. Translation: Temperature is a measure of average kinetic energy; higher temp.=higher KE

Kinetic-Molecular Theory of Gases
The KMT only applies to “ideal gases”—theoretical gases Other gases are called “real gases” Real gases behave almost ideally when the pressure is not too high and/or the temperature is not too low

Kinetic Energy (KE) The energy of motion KE = ½ mv2 m = mass v = speed

Try This A 68 kg track runner is running at 10 m/s and a 136 kg football player is running at 5 m/s. Which has more kinetic energy? KE = ½ (68 kg)(10 m/s)2 = J KE = ½ (136)(5 m/s)2 = 1700 J Track runner

Volume Volume is measured in: Liters (L) Milliliters (mL)
Cubic centimeters (cm3 or cc)

Pressure Pressure is measured in: Atmospheres (atm)
Millimeters of mercury (mm Hg) Kilopascals (kPa) Torricelli (torr) Pounds per square inch (psi)

Temperature Temperature is measured in: Celsius (°C) Kelvin (K)
Fahrenheit (°F)

Standard Temperature and Pressure
0°C or 273 K 1 atm or 760 mm Hg or 760 torr or kPa

The Gas Laws Developed to help create relationships between volume, pressure, temperature, and amount of a gas. First person to collect and analyze a gas—Robert Boyle

The Gas Laws Boyle’s Law: volume of a fixed mass of gas varies inversely with the pressure at constant temperature Translation: When pressure (P) increases, volume (V) decreases. When P decreases, V increases Mathematically: P1V1=P2V2

Important! Units must be the same thing. For instance if P1 is in mm of Hg then P2 must also be measured in mm of Hg. If V1 is measured in mL then V2 must also be measured in mL.

The Gas Laws Boyle’s Law Problem:
A gas at a pressure of 608 mm Hg is held in a container with a volume of 545 L. If the volume of the container is increased to 1065 L, and temperature is held constant, what is the new pressure of the gas?

The Gas Laws Boyle’s Law Solution: Have: P1=608 mm Hg V1=545 L
Want: P2 Use Boyle’s Law Equation P1V1=P2V2

The Gas Laws Boyle’s Law Solution P1V1 = P2V2
(608 mm Hg)(545 L) = (P2)(1065 L) 311 mm Hg

Try this! A high- altitude balloon contains 30.0 L of helium gas at 103 kPa. What is the volume when the balloon rises to an altitude where the pressure is only 25.0 kPa? (Assume that the temperature remains constant)

Answer P1V1 = P2V2 (103 kPa)(30.0 L) = (25.0 kPa)(V2) 124 L

Have you ever had the experience of buying a helium filled balloon and then taking it outside on a cold day? If you have you noticed that the balloon shrunk and looked like there was not enough helium put in it. However if you ever put a helium balloon in your car on a HOT day you will return to find that the balloon has exploded. Why do these things happen?

The Gas Laws Charles’ Law—relationship between gas temperature and volume the volume of a fixed mass of gas at constant pressure varies directly with the Kelvin temperature Translation: when V increases, T increases, and when V decreases, T decreases Mathematically:

Important! The Kinetic Theory of Gases states that the kinetic energy of a gas is proportional to its temperature and using a Celsius scale would cause the kinetic energy of a gas to be negative…which is impossible! Change the temperature to Kelvin!!!!

Remember…all temperatures must be in Kelvin
K = ºC + 273

The Gas Laws Charles’ Law Problem
A sample of neon gas occupies a volume of 752 mL at 25ºC. What volume will the gas occupy at 50ºC if the pressure remains constant? Remember…the gas laws will be applied; all temperatures must be in Kelvin!

The Gas Laws Charles’ Law Solution Have: V1=752 mL T1=25ºC + 273=298 K
Want: V2 in mL Use: Solve: mL = V2 298 K K 815 mL

Try This! A balloon inflated in a room at 24°C has a volume of 4.00 L. The balloon is then heated to a temperature of 58°C. What is the new volume if the pressure remains constant?

Answer V1 = V2 T1 T2 T1: 24°C + 273 = 297 K T2: 58°C + 273 = 331 K
4.00 L = V2 297 K K 4.46 L

The Gas Laws Gay-Lussac’s Law—relationship between gas pressure and temperature pressure of a fixed mass of gas at a constant volume varies directly with the Kelvin temperature Translation: When pressure increases, temp. increases; when pressure decreases, temp. decreases Mathematically:

The Gas Laws Gay-Lussac’s Law Problem:
The gas in an aerosol can is at a pressure of 3.00 atm at 25ºC. Directions on the can warn the user not to keep the can in a place where the temperature exceeds 52ºC. What would the gas pressure in the can be at 52ºC? Remember to convert temperatures to Kelvin!!

Answer P1 = P2 T1 T2 T1: 25°C + 273 = 298 K T2: 52°C + 273 = 325 K
3.00 atm = P2 298 K K 3.27 atm

Try This! A gas has a pressure of 6.58 kPa at 539 K. What will be the pressure at 211 K if the volume does not change?

Answer P = P2 T T2 6.58 kPa = P2 539 K K 2.58 kPa

The Gas Laws Combined Gas Law: combination of all three laws
Mathematically:

The volume of a gas -filled balloon is 30
The volume of a gas -filled balloon is 30.0 L at 40°C and 153 kPa pressure. What volume will the balloon have at standard temperature and pressure? Standard Pressure = 760 torr = 1 atm = 101.3kPa Standard Temp. = 273 K

Answer P1V1 = P2V2 T1 T2 T1: 40°C + 273 = 313 K T2: 0°C + 273 = 273 K
(153 kPa)(30.0 L) = (101.3 kPa)(V2) 313 K K 39.5 L

The Gas Laws Dalton’s Law of Partial Pressures: the total pressure of a mixture of gases is the sum of the pressures of each individual gas Translation: the sum of the parts equals the whole Mathematically: PT = P1 + P2 + P3 +…

Air contains oxygen, nitrogen , carbon dioxide and trace amounts of other gases. What is the partial pressure of oxygen (PO2) at kPa of total pressure if the partial pressure of nitrogen,carbon dioxide and other gases are kPa, kPa and 0.94 kPa respectively.

Answer PT = P1 + P2 + P3 +… 101.3 kPa = kPa kPa kPa + PO2 PO2 = 21.2 kPa

Ideal Gas Law Gases behave differently under different circumstances (each gas has a different molar mass) Use term “ideal gas” to describe gas behavior under all circumstances No such thing as ideal gas…they are “real gases” In reality gases can be liquefied and sometimes solidified by cooling and by applying pressure whereas ideal gases cannot be. So real gases do not behave like ideal gases under high pressures and at low temperatures.

Ideal Gas Law PV = nRT P is pressure may be labeled kPa, atm, mm Hg, or torr V is volume must be labeled L n is moles

Ideal Gas Law Continued
R is a constant whose value is determined by P. If P is labeled kPa  R = 8.314 If P is labeled atm  R = If P is labeled mm Hg or torr  R = 62.4 T is temperature must be labeled K

Try This! You fill a rigid steel cylinder that has a volume of 20.0 L with nitrogen gas to a final pressure of torrs at 28°C. How many moles of nitrogen gas does the cylinder contain? Convert Temperature to Kelvin!

Answer PV = nRT 28°C = 301 K ( torr)(20.0 L) = n (62.4)(301 K) 160. moles of N2

Try This! What volume is occupied by 5.03 g of hydrogen gas at 28°C and a pressure of 2.0 atm? Hint: Convert grams to moles and °C to K!

Answer PV = nRT 5.03 g ÷ 2.0 g/mol = 2.515 mol H2 28°C + 273 = 301 K
(2 atm)(V) = (2.515 mol)(0.0821)(301 K) 31 L

Ideal Gas Law Finding the molar mass M = mRT PV
M = molar mass and m = grams What is the molar mass of a gas if 372 ml have a mass of grams at 100ºC and 108 kPa of pressure?

Answer M = mRT PV What is the molar mass of a gas if 372 ml have a mass of grams at 100ºC and 108 kPa of pressure? 372 mL ÷ 1000 = L 100°C = 373 K M = (0.920 g)(8.314)(373 K) (108 kPa)(0.372 L) 71.0 g/mol

Try This! A container holds 2240 L of methane gas (CH4) at a pressure of 1.50 kPa and a temperature of 42°C. How many grams of CH4 does this container hold?

M = mRT Answer PV 42°C + 273 = 315 K CH4 = 12.0 + 4.0 = 16.0 g/mol
16.0 g.mol = (x g)(8.314)(315 K) (1.50 kPa)(2240L) 20.5 g

Diffusion and Effusion
Diffusion is the gradual mixing of gases due to the random, spontaneous motion of the gas particles Effusion is the process by which gas molecules trapped in a container randomly pass through tiny openings in the container What are everyday examples of diffusion or effusion?

Examples Diffusion: perfume spreading, smelling cooking food, and smell something burning Effusion: tire puncture and a pin hole in a balloon

Diffusion and Effusion
Rates of diffusion/effusion depends on the velocity of the molecules Velocity depends on temperature and mass Would hot or cold particles move faster? Would heavy particles move slower or faster?

Diffusion and Effusion
Graham’s Law—relationship between rate of effusion (diffusion) and molar mass the rate of effusion of gases at the same temperature and pressure are inversely proportional to the square root of the molar mass Mathematically:

Nitrogen effuses at 535 m/s. How much faster will helium gas effuse?
Graham noticed that gases of lower molar mass effuse faster than gases of higher molar mass. Nitrogen effuses at 535 m/s. How much faster will helium gas effuse? 535 m/s = √4 x m/s √28 1415 m/s ÷ 535 m/s 2.6 times faster
