Gas Notes (Chapter 10)

Gases are made up of atoms and molecules just like all other compounds, but because they are in the form of a gas we can learn a great deal more about these molecules and compounds. It might seem a bit confusing because we can’t see most gases, but we know they exist. We will be doing many demos and lab activities to explain and understand gases!

I. Let’s look at some of the Nature of Gases:
1. Expansion – gases do NOT have a definite shape or volume. 2. Fluidity – gas particles glide past one another, called fluid just like a liquid. 3. Compressibility – can be compressed because gases take up mostly empty space. 4. Diffusion – gases spread out and mix without stirring and without a current. Gases mix completely unless they react with each other.

IV. Volume, Pressure, Temperature, Number of Moles (Descriptions of Gases)
1. Volume – refers to the space matter (gas) occupies. Measured in liters (L). 1L = 1000mL

Film Canister Demo 2. Pressure – the number of times particles collide with each other and the walls of the container (force exerted on a given area). Measured in atmospheres (atm). 1atm = 760 millimeters Hg ( Barometers use Hg) 1atm = 760 torr (Named after Torricelli for the invention of the barometer) 1atm = kPa - kilopascals

3. Temperature – as temperate increases gas particles move faster, as temperature decreases gas particles move slower. Measured in Kelvin (K). K = C

A. Boyle’s Law - Pressure and Volume (when temperature remains constant)
V1 = initial or old volume V1P1 = V2P2 V2 = final or new volume P1 = initial or old pressure P2 = final or new pressure Inverse Relationship (As pressure increases, volume decreases and as pressure decreases, volume increases.)

Boyle’s Law

Robert Boyle ( ) Boyle was born into an aristocratic Irish family Became interested in medicine and the new science of Galileo and studied chemistry.  A founder and an influential fellow of the Royal Society of London Wrote extensively on science, philosophy, and theology.

Graph of Boyle’s Law Boyle’s Law says the pressure is inverse to the volume. Note that when the volume goes up, the pressure goes down

Jacques Charles ( ) French Physicist Part of a scientific balloon flight on Dec. 1, 1783 – was one of three passengers in the second balloon ascension that carried humans This is how his interest in gases started It was a hydrogen filled balloon – good thing they were careful!

C. Gay-Lussac’s Law - Pressure and Temperature (when volume is constant)
P1 = P2 T T2 Direct Relationship (As temperature increases, pressure increases and as temperature decreases, pressure decreases.)

Joseph Louis Gay-Lussac (1778 – 1850)
French chemist and physicist Known for his studies on the physical properties of gases. In 1804 he made balloon ascensions to study magnetic forces and to observe the composition and temperature of the air at different altitudes.

Temperature and Pressure (Gay-Lussac’s Law) Gas Demonstrations
Inverted Fountain As the temperature of the gas increases the pressure of the gas increases. (Inverting the flask into the water showed that the pressure increased because water was pulled into the flask.)

1c. The gas in an aerosol can is at 3atm of pressure at 298K
1c. The gas in an aerosol can is at 3atm of pressure at 298K. What would the gas pressure in the can be at 325K? 2c. At 120.C the pressure of a sample of nitrogen gas is 769torr. What will the pressure be at 205C? 3c. A gas at 32.0C has a pressure of atm. If the temperature increases to 44.0C what is the new pressure of the gas?

E. Daltons Law of Partial Pressures
The pressure of each gas in a mixture is called the partial pressure of that gas. Daltons Law of Partial Pressure states that the total pressure of a mixture of gases is equal to the sum of the partial pressures of the component gases.

PT = P1 + P2 + P3 + ……. PT = total pressure
P# = the partial pressures of the individual gases

If the first three containers are all put into the fourth, we can find the pressure in that container by adding up the pressure in the first 3: 2 atm + 1 atm + 3 atm = 6 atm 1 2 3 4

1e. A mixture of gases has the following partial pressure for the component gases at 20.0C in a volume of 2.00L: oxygen 180.torr, nitrogen 320.torr, and hydrogen 246torr. Calculate the pressure of the mixture. 2e. What is the final pressure of a 1.50L mixture of gases produced from 1.50L of neon at atm, 800.mL of nitrogen at 150.mmHg and 1.2oL of oxygen at 25.3kPa? Assume constant temperature. (Hint use Boyle’s law.)

Daltons Law applied to Gases Collected by Water Displacement
Ptotal = Pgas + PH2O

Daltons Law applied to Gases Collected by Water Displacement
Ptotal = Pgas + PH2O

Daltons Law applied to Gases Collected by Water Displacement

Daltons Law applied to Gases Collected by Water Displacement – Figure 10-15 page 324
Patm or PT= Pgas + PH2O Patm or PT = barometric pressure or total pressure Pgas = pressure of the gas collected PH2O = vapor pressure of water at specific temperature (Found on page 899 of you textbook.)

3e. Oxygen gas from the decomposition reaction of potassium chlorate was collected by water displacement at a pressure of 731torr and a temperature of 20.0C. What was the partial pressure of the oxygen gas collected? 4e. Solid magnesium and hydrochloric acid react producing hydrogen gas that was collected over water at a pressure of 759mmHg and measured 19.0mL. The temperature of the solution at which the gas was collected was 25.0C. What would be the pressure of the dry hydrogen gas? What would be the volume of the dry hydrogen gas at STP?

F. Ideal Gas Law (PV = nRT) – to use this law, all units must be as follows:
P = pressure in atm V = volume in liters n = number of moles T = temperature in Kelvin R = (0.0821L) (1atm) (1mol) (1K) R is the ideal gas constant (page 342 in book describes where this constant came from.)

1f. How many moles of CH4 gas are there in 85.0L at STP?
2f. What volume will be occupies by 1.50grams of nitrogen monoxide gas at 348K and pressure of 300.mmHg? 3f. A volume of 11.2L of a gas at STP has how many moles?

G. Solving for Density and /or Molar Mass of a gas using the Ideal Gas Law
1. Density (units are g/L) Use the Ideal Gas Law to find moles (n), convert n to grams OR use the Ideal Gas Law to find the volume. Divide n (in grams) by the volume.

1g. What is the density of a sample of ammonia gas, NH3, if the pressure is atm and the temperature is 63.0C? 2g. What is the density of argon gas at a pressure of 551 torr and a temperature of 25.0C?

2. Molar Mass (units are g/mol) If density is given, use the density of the gas to determine the molar mass (use 1 L at the volume and solve for n). If a mass is given, use the Ideal Gas Law to solve for n and then find the molar mass.

3g. The density of a gas was found to be 2. 00g/L at 1. 50atm and 27
3g. The density of a gas was found to be 2.00g/L at 1.50atm and 27.0C. What is the molar mass of the gas? 4g. What is the molar mass of a gas if 0.427g of the gas occupies a volume of 125mL at 20.0C and 0.980atm?

H. Molar Volume of Gases Recall that 1 mole of a compound contains X 1023 molecules of that compound – it doesn’t matter what the compound is. One mole of any gas, at STP, will occupy the same volume as one mole of any other gas at the same temperature and pressure, despite any mass differences. The volume occupied by one mole of a gas at STP is known as the standard molar volume of a gas. It has been found to be 22.4liters. We can use this as a new conversion factor 1mol of gas/22.4L of same gas. (Avogadro’s Law states that equal volumes of gases at the same temperature and pressure contain equal numbers of molecules.

1 mol = 22.4L (molar volume of any gas at STP)

1h. What volume, in L, is occupied by 32.0 grams of oxygen gas at STP?

I. Stoichiometry of Gases
Just like mole ratios can be written from an equation so can a volume ratio-same concept! 2CO(g) + O2 (g)  2CO2 (g)

1i. Using the above equation, what volume of oxygen gas is needed to react completely with 0.626L of carbon monoxide to form carbon dioxide? 2i. How many grams of solid calcium carbonate must be decomposed to produce 5.00L of carbon dioxide gas at STP? 3i. How many liters of hydrogen gas at 35.0C and 0.980atm are needed to produce 8.75L of gaseous water according to the following equation? WO3(s) + 3H2(g)  W(s) + 3H2O(g)

Graham’s Law IV. Effusion and Diffusion
Effusion is the process whereby the molecules of a gas confined in a container randomly pass through a tiny opening in the container. (onions on page 352)

Graham’s Law IV. Effusion and Diffusion
Graham’s Law states that the rates of diffusion/effusion of gases at the same temperature and pressure are inversely proportional to the square roots of their molar masses.

Diffusion: describes the mixing of gases
Diffusion: describes the mixing of gases. The rate of diffusion is the rate of gas mixing. Molecules move from areas of high concentration to low concentration.

Effusion: a gas escapes through a tiny hole in its container
-Think of a nail in your car tire… Diffusion and effusion are explained by the next gas law: Graham’s

Rate of diffusion/effusion of A = √(MB/MA) Rate of diffusion/effusion of B
MA or B = molar mass of that compound Gas A is the lighter, faster gas Rate of diffusion/effusion is the same as the velocity (or speed) of the gas. After the rates of diffusion/effusion for two gases are determined, the gas with the lower molar mass will be the one diffusing/effusing fastest.

1j. Compare the rates of effusion for hydrogen and oxygen at the same temperature and
pressure. (Which one effuses faster and how much faster is it effusing?) 2j. A sample of hydrogen effuses through a porous container about 9 times faster than an unknown gas. Estimate the molar mass of the unknown gas.

Graham’s Law and Time Graham’s Law and Time – the time it takes a gas to effuse is directly proportional to its molar mass. tA = MA t = time tB MB

3j. A sample of an unknown gas flows through the wall of a pours cup in 39.9 minutes. An equal volume of helium (under same temperature and pressure) flows through in 9.75 minutes. What is the molar mass of the unknown gas?
