1 Gas Law Properties of gases: –Compressible –Expand –Exert pressure on surroundings –Miscible (ability to be mixed) Kinetic Theory 1.Gases consist of discrete molecules that are very small and far apart relative to their size 2.Molecules of a gas are in rapid constant motion and move in straight lines 3.Collisions between gas molecules and with walls of a container are elastic (ie: total energy is conserved) 4.Between collisions, molecules exert no attractive or repulsive forces on one another

2 Diffusion Gas molecules are constantly, randomly moving. Over time, gas particles will tend to move and try to take up as much space as possible, mixing with other gas molecules easily. Gas molecules will naturally try to move from higher concentrations to lower concentrations This property of gases is known as diffusion.

3 Gas Laws Useful variables: –Pressure (P) – Defined as the force per unit area. Gases exert pressure because the molecules hit the surface of a container. –Volume (V) – the amount of space that is occupied by a gas. Standard unit is Liter (L), but cubic meters (m 3 ), and other units are often used

4 –Temperature (T) – the actual definition of temperature is the measure of the average kinetic energy of the particles in a sample of matter. –Mole (n) – the total number of moles of a gas present in a system.

5 Pressure Conversion There are a wide range of measurement styles used for pressure. All are common, but in the ideal gas law, only atmosphere is used. 1atm= 760 mmHg = 760 torr = kPa = 1.01 x 10 5 Pa = 14.7 psi

6 Kelvin Temperature Temperature is measured using a variety of units, degrees Fahrenheit, degrees Celsius, and Kelvin. In the ideal gas law, only Kelvins are used T Kelvin = T Celsius

7 Standard Temperature and Pressure Also known as STP To make things easier, many experiments and calculations are performed at pre-set conditions of pressure and temperature At STP, the standard pressure is 1 atm. At STP, the standard temperature is 273K

8 Gas Law Boyles Law states that for a given amount of gas at a constant temperature, the volume of a gas varies inversely with its pressure. P 1 V 1 = P 2 V 2 Ex 1: A 15 liter sample of gas at 1.0 atm is compressed to 8.0 liters. What is the final pressure? Ex 2: A sample of gas held at 10 liters and 3.0 atm is allowed to expand and has a final pressure of 1.0 atm. What is the final volume of the gas?

9 Gas Law Charles Law states that the volume of a gas at constant pressure is directly proportional to the temperature. V 1 /T 1 = V 2 /T 2 Ex1: A balloon has a volume of 0.75 L. The balloon is taken to a new room where the temperature is 20 o C. The balloon shrinks to a volume of 0.58 L. What was the original temperature of the balloon? Ex2: On a cold day of 45 o F, a girl blows up a balloon to 0.5 L. If the day warms up to 60 o F, what will be the new volume of the balloon?

10 Gas Law Gay-Lussacs Law states that the pressure of a gas at constant volume is directly proportional to the temperature. P 1 /T 1 = P 2 /T 2 Ex1: Consider a container with a volume of 22.4 L filled with a gas at 1.00 atm at 273 K. What will be the new pressure if the temperature increases to 298 K? Ex2: A container is initally at 47 mm Hg and 77 K (liquid nitrogen temperature.) What will the temperature be when the pressure raises to 200 mm Hg?

11 Combined Gas Law The Combined Gas Law brings together Boyles, Charles, and Gay-Lussacs Laws to help us see how pressure, temperature, and volume of a gas are affected when all three are allowed to change for a fixed mole quantity of a gas. P 1 V 1 = P 2 V 2 T 1 T 2

12 –Ex: a balloon contains 1L of gas at 1atm of pressure and 298K temperature. If the temperature of the gas was raised to 400K and the new pressure was found to be 1.1atm, what is the new volume of the balloon?

13 Gas Law Avogadros Principle states that equal volumes of gases at the same temperature and pressure contain equal numbers of particles. At standard temperature and pressure (STP) conditions (0.0 o C, and 1atm), 1mole of any gas will occupy 22.4L. Ex1: Calculate the volume that moles of a gas at STP will occupy. Ex2: At STP, a gas occupies 16L of space. How many moles of the gas are there?`

14 Ideal Gas Law The Ideal Gas Law is the combined application of Avogadros, Boyles, Charles, and Gay- Lussacs Laws. PV = nRT P = Pressure T = Temperature V = Volume R = Ideal Gas Constant n = Moles

15 Universal Gas Constant Often called the ideal gas constant, R is an experimentally derived number that allows the ideal gas equation (among other complex equations) to work. The actual numerical value R will depend upon the units used in measuring pressure, volume, and temperature. R = L. atm/mol. K = J/mol. K = L. kPa/mol. K = 62.4 L. mmHg/mol. K = ft 3. psi /R. lb-mol

16 Gas Law Ex1: Calculate the number of moles of a gas contained in a 3.0L vessel at 300K with a pressure of 1.50atm. Ex2: If I have 7.7 moles of gas at a pressure of 560 torr and at a temperature of 56 o C, what is the volume of the container that the gas is in? Ex3: A gas inflates a bag up to 5.25L at STP. How much of this gas is present?
