2 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 MassScientific TheoryA theory is a model that explains why experiments give certain results.Example: Kinetic Molecular Theory
3 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.

7 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.
8 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.
9 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!)
10 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.
11 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!
12 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.

36 Tips for the Ideal Gas Law Problems with Stoichiometry The volume will always need to be in liters and the temperature in Kelvin.Always have a balanced chemical equation!You can only use 22.4 L = 1 mol at STP.For most problems, you will do one of two ways.Solving for Volume: You will use stoichiometry to solve for moles and then use the ideal gas law to solve for volume.Solving for Moles or Mass: You will use the ideal gas law to solve for moles and then use stoichiometry to solve for moles or mass.
