Expansion Expansion – gases expand to fill their containers Compression Compression – gases can be compressed Fluids Fluids – gas particles flow past each other Density Density – gases have low density 1/1000 the density of the equivalent liquid or solid effuse diffuse Gases effuse and diffuse
1. Gases consist of large numbers of tiny particles that are far apart relative to their size. 2. Collisions between gas particles and between particles and container walls are elastic. Elastic collision – collision in which there is no net loss of kinetic energy 3. Gas particles are in continuous, rapid, random motion. They therefore possess kinetic energy. 4. There are no forces of attraction between gas particles. 5. The temperature of a gas depends on the average kinetic energy of the particles of the gas.
At the same conditions of temperature, all gases have the same average kinetic energy m = mass v = velocity small molecules FASTERlarge molecules At the same temperature, small molecules move FASTER than large molecules
V = velocity of molecules M = molar mass R = gas constant T = temperature
A force that acts on a given area Pressure = Force Area
The first device for measuring atmospheric pressure was developed by Evangelista Torricelli during the 17th century Called a barometer The normal pressure due to the atmosphere at sea level can support a column of mercury that is 760 mm high
1 atmosphere (atm) 760 mm Hg (millimeters of mercury) 760 torr bar Pa (pascals) kPa (kilopascals) 14.7 psi (pounds per square inch)
Standard Temperature and Pressure (STP) 1 atmosphere 273 K
Partial pressure – pressure exerted by particular component in a mixture of gases Daltons Law states that the total pressure of a gas mixture is the sum of the partial pressures of the component gases P t = P 1 + P 2 + P 3 +…
Mole fraction – expresses the ratio of the number of moles of one component to the total number of moles in the mixture P 1 = P t or P 1 = X 1 P t X 1 = mole fraction of gas 1 Example: The mole fraction of N2 in air is 0.78 (78% of air is nitrogen). What is the partial pressure of nitrogen in mmHg? P N2 = (0.78)(760 mmHg) = 590 mmHg
Gas collected by water displacement is always mixed with a small amount of water vapor Must account for the vapor pressure of the water molecules P total = P gas + P H2O Note: The vapor pressure of water varies with temperature

Pressure is inversely proportional to volume when temperature is held constant.
The volume of a gas is directly proportional to temperature. (P = constant) Temperature MUST be in KELVINS!
The pressure and temperature of a gas are directly related, provided that the volume remains constant. Temperature MUST be in KELVINS!
Expresses the relationship between pressure, volume and temperature of a fixed amount of gas
For a gas at constant temperature and pressure, the volume is directly proportional to the number of moles of gas (at low pressures). V = constant × n V = volume of the gas n = number of moles of gas For example, doubling the moles will double the volume of a gas
Imaginary gases that perfectly fit all of the assumptions of the kinetic molecular theory
PV = nRT P = pressure V = volume n = moles R = ideal gas constant T = temperature (Kelvin) Numerical Value of RUnits (atmL)/(molK) J/(molK) 62.4 (mmHgL)/(molK) Note: 1 J = 1 Pam 3
STP of 1 mole of gas = 1 atm and 273K PV = nRT (1atm)(V) = (1mol)(.0821)(273) V = 22.4 L Volume of 1 mole of gas at STP = 22.4 liters
Real Gas – does not behave completely according to the assumptions of the kinetic molecular theory At high pressure (smaller volume) and low temperature gases deviate from ideal behavior Particles will be closer together so there is insufficient kinetic energy to overcome attractive forces
The Van der Waals Equation adjusts for non- ideal behavior of gases (p. 423 of book) corrected pressure corrected volume P ideal V ideal
… so at STP…
Combine density with the ideal gas law (V = p/RT) M = Molar Mass P = Pressure R = Gas Constant T = Temperature in Kelvins
If reactants and products are at the same conditions of temperature and pressure, then mole ratios of gases are also volume ratios. 3 H 2 (g) + N 2 (g) 2NH 3 (g) 3 moles H mole N 2 2 moles NH 3 3 liters H liter N 2 2 liters NH 3
How many liters of ammonia can be produced when 12 liters of hydrogen react with an excess of nitrogen? 3 H 2 (g) + N 2 (g) 2NH 3 (g) 12 L H 2 L H 2 = L NH 3 L NH
How many liters of oxygen gas, at STP, can be collected from the complete decomposition of 50.0 grams of potassium chlorate? 2 KClO 3 (s) 2 KCl(s) + 3 O 2 (g) 50.0 g KClO 3 1 mol KClO g KClO 3 3 mol O 2 2 mol KClO L O 2 1 mol O 2 = 13.7 L O 2
How many liters of oxygen gas, at 37.0 C and atmospheres, can be collected from the complete decomposition of 50.0 grams of potassium chlorate? 2 KClO 3 (s) 2 KCl(s) + 3 O 2 (g) 50.0 g KClO 3 1 mol KClO g KClO 3 3 mol O 2 2 mol KClO 3 = mol O 2 = 16.7 L 0.612
Spontaneous mixing of two substances caused by the random motion of particles rate of diffusion The rate of diffusion is the rate of gas mixing increases The rate of diffusion increases with temperature faster Small molecules diffuse faster than large molecules
Process by which gas particles pass through a tiny opening
Rate of effusion of gases at the same temperature and pressure are inversely proportional to the square roots of their molar masses. M 1 M 1 = Molar Mass of gas 1 M 2 M 2 = Molar Mass of gas 2
