The Ideal Gas Law Bringing It All Together

Objectives When you complete this presentation, you will be able to state the ideal gas law derive the ideal gas law constant and discuss its units use the ideal gas law to calculate pressure, volume, temperature, or amount of gas in a system calculate molar mass or density of a gas

Introduction When we use the combined gas law we allow P, V, and T to vary. we keep the amount of gas constant. If we vary the amount of gas as well as the pressure, volume, and temperature we will use the Ideal Gas Law

Introduction When we use the phrase Ideal Gas Law, we are talking about an ideal gas we are not talking about a real gas An ideal gas obeys all of the assumptions of the kinetic theory of gases - small particles no attraction moving rapidly perfectly elastic collisions

Introduction Under most common circumstances, real gases act like ideal gases. Only under conditions of - low temperature or high pressure will real gases deviate from ideality.

Application Applying the kinetic theory, as we add an amount of gas to a container of gas, we are introducing additional particles to collide with the walls of the container. Pressure goes up to keep V & T constant Volume goes up to keep P & T constant Temperature goes down to keep P & V constant

Application This means that the amount ( number of mols ) of material varies - directly with pressure and volume directly with pressure and volume inversely with temperature inversely with temperature We will use the equation - PV = nRT P is pressure, V is volume, n is mols of gas, T is temperature, and R is the gas constant.

Application PV = nRT P: measured in atm, kPa, or mm Hg V: measured in L n: measured in mol T: measured in K R: a constant whose value depends on the units of P, V, n, and T

The Value of R R is a constant whose value depends on the units of P, V, n, and T (mostly on the units of pressure ) We can find R by solving the ideal gas law for R and entering the appropriate values. We remember from our studies of stoichiometry that 1.00 mol of a gas has a volume of 22.4 L at STP (standard temperature and pressure). This gives us enough information to find R for each unit of pressure.

The Value of R Where P is in atm: STP is 1.00 atm at 273 K pV = nRT R = PV/nT R = [(1.00 atm)(22.4 L)]/[(1.00 mol)(273 K)] R = 0.0821 L-atm/mol-K

The Value of R Where P is in mm Hg: STP is 760 mm Hg at 273 K pV = nRT R = PV/nT R = [(760 mm Hg)(22.4 L)]/[(1.00 mol)(273 K)] R = 62.4 L-mm Hg/mol-K

The Value of R Where P is in kPa: STP is 101.3 kPa at 273 K pV = nRT R = PV/nT R = [(101.3 kPa)(22.4 L)]/[(1.00 mol)(273 K)] R = 8.314 L-mm Hg/mol-K

The Value of R PV = nRT If P is measured in atm : R = 0.0821 atm -L/mol-K If P is measured in kPa : R = 8.314 kPa -L/mol-K If P is measured in mm Hg : R = 62.4 mm Hg -L/mol-K

The Value of R PV = nRT Remember: The value of R is dependent on the units of pressure. Always use the correct value of R. All appropriate values for R will be given to you for any test or quiz.

P = ? atm V = 4.00 L n = 0.125 mol R = 0.0821 L-atm/mol-K T = 430 K PV = nRT P = nRT V = (0.125)(0.0821)(430) (4.00) atm P = 1.10321875 atm = 1.10 atm This is the value we use when pressure is expressed in atm.

Application The ability to measure the amount of the gas from pressure, volume, and temperature measurements is a powerful tool for exploring other properties of gases. If we can also measure the mass of the gas, we can determine the molar mass of the gas the density of the gas

The Molar Mass of a Gas We can determine the number of mols, n, of a gas by using pressure, volume, and temperature measurements and the ideal gas law. n = PV/RT The molar mass, M, is the mass, m, divided by the number of mols. M =m/n Putting the two equations together M = m/(PV/RT) = mRT/PV

Example 5 – Finding M At 301 K and 0.974 atm, 1.00 L of a gas has a mass of 5.16 g. What is the molar mass of this gas? P = 0.974 atm V = 1.00 L R = 0.0821 L-atm/mol-K T = 301 K m = 5.16 g M = mRT PV = (5.16)(0.0821)(301) (0.974)(1.00) g/mol M = 130.9183121 g/mol = 131 g/mol This is the value we use when pressure is expressed in atm.

Practice Problems – Finding M 1.At 302 K and 1.05 atm, 1.81 L of a gas has a mass of 5.42 g. What is the molar mass of this gas? 2.At 260 K and 695 mm Hg, 5.41 L of a gas has a mass of 10.2 g.

What is the molar mass of this gas? M = 70.0 g/mol M = 44.0 g/mol M = 83.9 g/mol M = 58.2 g/mol

The Density of a Gas The density of a gas is the mass of the gas divided by its volume ρ = m/V If we measure the density of a gas and know its pressure and temperature, we can find the molar mass, M. M =M =M =M = mRT PV m RT V P = m RT V P = ρ RT P = We are just rearranging V and P in the denominator. We separate out the m/V term. We replace m/V with ρ.

Example 6 – Finding M What is the molar mass of a gas with a density of 3.42 g/L at 293 K and 0.980 atm? ρ = 3.42 g/L R = 0.0821 L-atm/mol-K T = 293 K P = 0.980 atm M = ρ RT P = (3.42)(0.0821)(293) (0.980) g/mol M = 83.94808776 g/mol = 83.9 g/mol This is the value we use when pressure is expressed in atm.

Practice Problems – Finding M 1.What is the molar mass of a gas with a density of 3.25 g/L at 150 K and 10.0 atm? 2.What is the molar mass of a gas with a density of 5.76 g/L at 273 K and 672 mm Hg? 3.What is the molar mass of a gas with a density of 5.17 g/L at 452 K and 672 kPa? 4.What is the molar mass of a gas with a density of 0.508 g/L at 345 K and 0.450 atm? M = 4.00 g/mol M = 146 g/mol M = 352 g/mol M = 32.0 g/mol

The Density of a Gas If we know the molar mass of a gas, then we can calculate the density of that gas under specific conditions of pressure and temperature. M =M =M =M = ρ =ρ =ρ =ρ = M P RT ρ RT P If we rearrange and solve for ρ … We used this equation to solve for molar mass when we knew density.

Example 7 – Finding ρ What is the density of a sample of ammonia gas, NH 3, M = 17.04 g/mol, at 0.928 atm and 336 K? M = 17.04 g/mol P = 0.928 atm R = 0.0821 L-atm/mol-K T = 336 K ρ = M P RT = (17.04)(0.928) (0.0821)(336) g/L ρ = 0.5732382112 g/L = 0.573 g/L This is the value we use when pressure is expressed in atm.

Summary The ideal gas law allows us to calculate the pressures, volumes, amounts, and temperatures of gases. PV = nRT The value of the ideal gas constant, R, depends on the units of pressure. For units of atm, R = 0.0821 L-atm/mol-K For units of kPa, R = 8.314 L-kPa/mol-K For units of mm Hg, R = 62.4 L-mm Hg/mol-K We can also use the ideal gas law to calculate the molar masses and densities of gases.
