Behavior of Gases Chapter 10 & 12

Laws versus Theories Scientific Law Scientific Theory
A law is a statement that describes actions or a set of actions that occurs consistently. Example: Law of Conservation of Mass Scientific Theory A theory is a model that explains why experiments give certain results. Example: Kinetic Molecular Theory

Postulates of the Kinetic Molecular Theory of Gases
All gases particles are in constant and random motion. There are no sources of attractions or repulsion among gas particles. The collision of these gas particles with an object results in gas pressure. The average kinetic energy of these gas particles is directly related to their absolute temperature.

Explanation of Kinetic Molecular Theory Experiment
Postulate #1 & 2 The universal indicator changed colors in every direction because gas particles are in constant and random motion, which means the gas should go in every direction.

Crushing Can Postulate #3 & 4
As the water boils, the can becomes full of steam. When the can is inverted into the cold water bath, the temperature of the gas inside the can drops and some of the water condenses. Since the temperature drops and there are fewer gas particles, the pressure inside the can decreases. Since the pressure outside the can is now much greater, this higher pressure crushes the can.

Squirt Bottle Postulate #3
Dry ice is changing from a solid to a gas. This creates more gas particles inside the water bottle. Since there are more gas particles, there will be more collisions of gas particles with the walls of the container. Since there are more collisions of gas particles with the walls of the container, the pressure inside the bottle increases. The higher pressure pushes the water up and out of the water bottle. (Remember pressure is a force, which is a push or a pull!)

The Crushing Can in Real Life
The tanker truck was steam cleaned. It was then sealed. This is the site that the workers saw the following morning.

Candles in a Beaker I want you to record your observations.
explain why your observations are occurring using the kinetic molecular theory. Wear safety goggles!

Candles in a Beaker Postulate #3 & 4
When the candles go out, the temperature begins to drop. The gas particles slow down, which causes the pressure inside the beaker to drop. The higher pressure on the outside of the beaker pushes the water into the beaker.

Pressure What is pressure? A Force Exerted by a Gas over a Given Area
What causes pressure? Collisions of the Gas Particles with the Walls of the Container That’s Pressure! Walls of the Container Gas Particle

Units of Pressure atmospheres = atm millimeters of mercury = mmHg
kilopascals = kPa pounds per square inch = psi 1 atm = 760mmHg = 101.3kPa = 14.7psi

Sample Problem #1 How many kilopascals are equivalent to 880mmHg?

Sample Problem #2 Calculate the number of psi that are in 2.60atm.

Remember STP = 1 atm and 0oC

Example Problems A hot air balloon has a volume of 7500L at 270K and a pressure of 1.2atm. What will be the volume of the balloon if the pressure changed to 0.90atm and the temperature decreases to 230K? The volume of a gas at STP is 22.4L.

Dalton’s Law of Partial Pressures
What is held constant? Temperature Volume Number of Gas Particles Picture of Dalton’s Law Ptotal = P1 + P2 + P3… Equation for Dalton’s Law This law only applies to a mixture of gases. Important Reminder + = Dalton’s Law of Partial Pressures A partial pressure is the pressure a gas would have or would exert if it were alone in the container.

Example Problems Air contains oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, and trace amounts of other gases. What is the partial pressure of oxygen (Poxygen) at 101.3kPa if the partial pressures of nitrogen, carbon dioxide, and other gases are 79.10kPa, 0.040kPa, and 0.94kPa, respectively? A mixture of gases contains oxygen, nitrogen, and helium. The partial pressure of oxygen is 2.1atm. The partial pressure of nitrogen in 0.21atm, and the partial pressure of helium is 7.80atm. Determine the total pressure of this mixture.

Ideal Gas Law Describing the Behavior of Ideal Gases
P V = n R T P = pressure V = volume in LITERS n = moles R = gas constant T = temperature in KELVIN The value of R that you use is based on your units of pressure. R = or or 8.314

Ideal Gases We assume that all gases behave ideally.
Most gases are not 100% ideal. Gases tend to be the most ideal at high temperatures and low pressures!
