Gas Laws

The 4 Gas Law Variables 1. Volume (V) 2. Temperature (T)
3. Pressure (P) 4. Amount of Gas (n)

VOLUME Symbol = V The 3-dimensional space enclosed by the walls of a container is the volume Usually measured in liters (L) or milliliters (mL) Whatever units of volume are used, use them all the way through the problem

Temperature Kelvin = celcius + 273 (32 oC = 305 K)
Symbol = T All gases have a temperature, usually measured in degrees Celsius= oC Also measured in Kelvins = K note there is no degree symbol ALL GAS PROBLEMS WILL BE DONE IN KELVINS Kelvin = celcius (32 oC = 305 K) Standard Temperature is defined as 0 oC or 273 K

Conversion Practice 25 + 273 = 298 K Convert 375 K to oC 375 – 273 =
Convert 25 oC to Kelvin = 298 K Convert 375 K to oC 375 – 273 = 102 oC Convert -50 oC to Kelvin = 223 K

Pressure 1. atmosphere (atm) Unfortunately all 4 will be used
Gas Pressure (P) is created by the molecules of a gas colliding with the walls of a container. 4 units of pressure 1. atmosphere (atm) 2. millimeters of Mercury (mmHg) 3. kiloPascals (kPa) 4. torr Unfortunately all 4 will be used

Pressure cont…. Standard Pressure is defined as 1 atm or 760 mm Hg or kPa or 760 torr Standard Temperature and Pressure is a common chemistry phrase. It will be abbreviated STP

Pressure Units Conversions
*Remember* 1 atm = mm Hg = kPa Convert atm to mm Hg 0.875 atm x mm Hg 1 atm Convert 745 mm Hg to atm 745 mm Hg x atm 760 mm Hg Convert atm to kPa 0.955 atm x kPa 1 atm . = 665 mm Hg = atm = 96.8 kPa

Amount of Gas Symbol= n (notice it lower case, all other symbols are upper case) Amount of gas could be measured in moles or grams. If it is in grams you will have to convert to moles at some point.

Boyles Law: The Pressure-Volume Relationship
Boyles Law shows the inverse relationship between the pressure and the volume of a gas. (Keeping T and n constant) If the volume of a container is increased, the pressure decreases If the volume of a container is decreased, the pressure increases P V or P V

Boyles Law: The Pressure-Volume Relationship
P V or P V WHY ? ? ? ? ? If the volume of the container is increased, gas molecules have to go further to collide with the wall. This means less pressure b/c of less collisions. If the volume is decreased, gas molecules have to go a shorter distance to strike the walls, therefore, more collisions, increasing the pressure

Boyles Law: The Pressure-Volume Relationship
The mathematical form of Boyle's Law is: PV = k P = pressure V= volume k= a constant This means that the pressure-volume product will always be the same value if the temperature and amount of gas remain constant This is an inverse mathematical relationship. As one quantity goes up in the value, the other goes down

Boyles Law: The Pressure-Volume Relationship
Suppose P1 and V1 are a pressure-volume pair of data at the start of an experiment. When you multiply P and V together, you get a number that is called k. Now, if the volume is changed to a new value called V2, then the pressure will spontaneously change to P2. It will do so because the PV product must always equal k.

Boyles Law: The Pressure-Volume Relationship
So we know this: P1V1 = k And we know that the second data pair equals the same constant: P2V2 = k Since k = k, we can conclude that P1V1 = P2V2. This equation of P1V1 = P2V2 will be very helpful in solving Boyle's Law problems.

Boyles Law: The Pressure-Volume Relationship
Example #1: 2.00 L of a gas is at mmHg pressure. What is its volume at standard pressure? ** remember standard pressure = mmHg** Use the equation P1V1 = P2V2 2.00 L x mmHg = mmHg x V2 V2 = 1.95 L

Boyles Law: The Pressure-Volume Relationship
Example #2: 5.00 L of a gas is at 1.08 atm. What pressure is obtained when the volume is 10.0 L? 5.00 L x 1.08 atm = P2 x L

Boyles Law: The Pressure-Volume Relationship
Example #3: 2.50 L of a gas was at an unknown pressure. However, at standard pressure ( kPa), its volume was measured to be 8.00 L. What was the unknown pressure? insert into P1V1 = P2V2 for the solution.

Charles Law: The Volume-Temperature Relationship
This law gives the relationship between volume and temperature if pressure and amount are held constant A. If the temperature increases, the volume of a gas is increased B. If the temperature is decreased, the volume of a gas is decreases.

Charles Law: The Volume-Temperature Relationship
V T or V T WHY ? ? ? Temperature increase causes molecules to move faster, which makes more collisions with the wall of the container, which increases the volume

Charles Law: The Volume-Temperature Relationship
Charles' Law is a direct mathematical relationship This means there are two connected values and when one goes up, the other also increases

Charles Law: The Volume-Temperature Relationship
The mathematical form of Charles' Law is: V / T = k Let V1 and T1 be a volume-temperature pair of data at the start of an experiment. If the volume is changed to a new value called V2, then the temperature must change to T2. The new volume-temperature data pair will preserve the value of k. The two different volume-temperature data pairs equal the same value and that value is called k.

Charles Law: The Volume-Temperature Relationship
So we know this: V1/T1 = k AND And we know this: V2/T2 = k Since k = k, we can conclude that

Charles Law: The Volume-Temperature Relationship
Example #1: A gas is collected and found to fill 2.85 L at 25.0°C. What will be its volume at standard temperature?

Example #2: 4.40 L of a gas is collected at 50.0°C. What will be its volume upon cooling to 25.0°C?

Charles Law: The Volume-Temperature Relationship
Example #2: 4.40 L of a gas is collected at 50.0°C. What will be its volume upon cooling to 25.0°C? Answer: Convert 50.0°C to 323 K and 25.0°C to 298 K. Then plug into the equation and solve for x, like this:

Gay-Lussac’s Law Pressure-Temperature Relationship
The relationship between pressure and temperature when volume and amount are held constant If the temperature of a container is increased, the pressure increases. If the temperature of a container is decreased, the pressure decreases.

Gay-Lussac’s Law Pressure-Temperature Relationship
P T OR P T WHY ? ? ? ? If Temperature is increased, that will cause the molecules to move faster and create more collisions between molecules and the wall of the container.

Gay-Lussac’s Law Pressure-Temperature Relationship
Gay-Lussac's Law is a direct mathematical relationship. The mathematical form of Gay-Lussac's Law is: P ÷ T = k the pressure-temperature fraction will always be the same value if the volume and amount remain constant

Gay-Lussac’s Law Pressure-Temperature Relationship
Let P1 and T1 be a pressure-temperature pair of data at the start of an experiment. If the temperature is changed to a new value called T2, then the pressure will change to P2. Since k = k, we can conclude that P1 ÷ T1 = P2 ÷ T2

Avogadro's Law Amount of Gas-Volume Relationship
the relationship between volume and amount when pressure and temperature are held constant Remember amount is measured in moles

Avogadro's Law Amount of Gas-Volume Relationship
If the amount of gas in a container is increased, the volume increases. n V If the amount of gas in a container is decreased, the volume decreases

Avogadro's Law Amount of Gas-Volume Relationship
WHY ? ? ? If we increase the amount of gas (n) then we have increased the # of molecules. More molecules means more collisions which in-turn means more volume

Avogadro's Law Amount of Gas-Volume Relationship
The mathematical form of Avogadro's Law is: V ÷ n = k Let V1 and n1 be a volume-amount pair of data at the start of an experiment. If the amount is changed to a new value called n2, then the volume will change to V2.

Avogadro's Law Amount of Gas-Volume Relationship
We know this: V1 ÷ n1 = k And we know this: V2 ÷ n2 = k Since k = k, we can conclude that V1 ÷ n1 = V2 ÷ n2

Avogadro's Law Amount of Gas-Volume Relationship
Example #1: 5.00 L of a gas is known to contain mol. If the amount of gas is increased to 1.80 mol, what new volume will result

Avogadro's Law Amount of Gas-Volume Relationship
Example #1: 5.00 L of a gas is known to contain mol. If the amount of gas is increased to 1.80 mol, what new volume will result 5.00 L = X 0.965 mol mol
