The Gas Laws You can predict how pressure, volume, temperature, and number of gas particles are related to each other based on the molecular model of a gas.

The Gas Laws The Kinetic Molecular Theory
1.) Gas particles are in constant motion and move in a straight line until they hit another gas particle or the side of the container. 2.) There are not attractive or repulsive forces between the gas particles. 3.) The volume of the actual gas particle is assumed to be zero, since it is insignificant to the volume of the whole sample of gas.

The Gas Laws The Kinetic Molecular Theory (cont.)
4.) The temperature is an indirect measure the average kinetic energy of all the gas particles in the sample. Kinetic Energy = ½ (mass) x (velocity)2 5.) There is no exchange of energy when 2 gas particles collide, the collision is totally elastic. (Just like when two billiard balls collide.)

The Gas Laws Pressure Pressure = Force Applied / Area (P = F / A)
When the gas molecules collide with the inside wall of the container, it exerts a force over an area. Therefore there is always an internal pressure on a gas.

The Gas Laws Measuring Pressure
Pressure can be measured using a device called a manometer.

The Gas Laws Measuring Pressure
Atmospheric Pressure can be measured using a device called a barometer.

1 atm = 101,300 Pa = 101.3 kPa = 14.7 psi = 760 torr = 760 mm Hg
The Gas Laws Units for Measuring Pressure Pascal (Pa) – Metric System unit for pressure Atmosphere (atm) Pounds per square inch (psi) Torricelli (torr) Millimeter of Mercury (mm Hg) 1 atm = 101,300 Pa = kPa = 14.7 psi = 760 torr = 760 mm Hg

1 atm = 101,300 Pa = 101.3 kPa = 14.7 psi = 760 torr = 760 mm Hg
The Gas Laws Pressure Conversions 1 atm = 101,300 Pa = kPa = 14.7 psi = 760 torr = 760 mm Hg Convert 0.75 atm into mm Hg. Convert 32.0 psi into kPa.

The Gas Laws Robert Boyle (1627 – 1691)
An English scientist whose work revolved around trying to discover the relationship between the pressure and volume of a gas.

The Gas Laws Boyle’s Law
If the pressure exerted on a gas increases, the volume of the gas will proportionally decrease. What is the relationship between the pressure exerted on a gas and its volume?

The Gas Laws Boyle’s Law
The product of the pressure and volume of a gas must always be a constant as long as the temperature and # of moles of gas remain constant. Pressure x Volume = constant Pressure(initial) x Volume(initial) = Pressure(final) x Volume (final) P1V1 = P2V2

The Gas Laws Boyle’s Law
Initially, a 3.0 L expandable tank of gas is under a pressure of 13 atm. What would be the volume of the tank if the pressure inside the tank is reduced to 5.0 atm. The temperature and # of moles of gas remain constant.

The Gas Laws Jacques Charles (1746 – 1823)
A French scientist, inventor, and avid balloonist. He was interested in discovering the affect that the temperature had on the volume of a gas.

Temperature must be in Kelvins!
The Gas Laws Charles’ Law The volume of a gas divided by its Kelvin temperature must remain constant. As long as the pressure and # moles of gas does not change. Volume = constant Temperature Volume(initial) = Volume(final) Temperature(initial) Temperature(final) V = V2 T T2 Temperature must be in Kelvins!

French Chemist and Physicist who discovered th relationship between the pressure and the temperature of a gas.

The Gas Laws P1 = P2 T1 T2 Joseph Louis Gay-Lussac (1778 – 1850)
Gay-Lussac’s Law P1 = P2 T T2 The volume and number of moles of gas must remain constant.

0.05atm trace gases = 1.0 atm (atmospheric pressure)
The Gas Laws Dalton’s Law of Partial Pressures The partial pressure (pgas X) of a gas is the pressure that the gas exerts when it is part of a mixture of gases. Right now, the room that we are sitting in contains nitrogen gas, oxygen gas, water vapor, and trace amount of other gases. 0.21 atm O atm N atm CO2 + 0.05atm trace gases = 1.0 atm (atmospheric pressure)
