5 © 2006 Brooks/Cole - Thomson Properties of Gases Gas properties can be modeled using math. Model depends on V = volume of the gas (L)V = volume of the gas (L) T = temperature (K)T = temperature (K) n = amount (moles)n = amount (moles) P = pressure (atmospheres)P = pressure (atmospheres)

7 © 2006 Brooks/Cole - Thomson Pressure Hg rises in tube until force of Hg (down) balances the force of atmosphere (pushing up into the cylinder). P of Hg pushing down related to Hg density (13.55 g/mL)Hg density (13.55 g/mL) column heightcolumn height

9 © 2006 Brooks/Cole - Thomson IDEAL GAS LAW Brings together gas properties. Can be derived from experiment and theory. P V = n R T

10 © 2006 Brooks/Cole - Thomson Boyle s Law If n and T are constant, then PV = nRT = k P = k (1/V) = nRT This means, for example, that P goes up as V goes down. They are inversely proportional. For changing pressure or volume of a confined gas, PV=PV Robert Boyle (1627-1691). Son of Earl of Cork, Ireland.

11 © 2006 Brooks/Cole - Thomson Charles s Law If n and P are constant, then V = (nR/P)T = kT V and T are directly related. For changing temperature or volume of a confined gas, V/T=V/T V/T=V/T Jacques Charles (1746- 1823). Isolated boron and studied gases. Balloonist.

13 © 2006 Brooks/Cole - Thomson Charles s Law Balloons immersed in liquid N 2 (at -196 ˚C) will shrink as the air cools (and is liquefied).

14 © 2006 Brooks/Cole - Thomson Avogadro s Hypothesis Equal volumes of gases at the same T and P have the same number of molecules. V = n (RT/P) = kn V and n are directly related. For changing moles of a confined gas, V/n=V/n twice as many molecules

15 © 2006 Brooks/Cole - Thomson KINETIC MOLECULAR THEORY (KMT) Theory used to explain gas laws. KMT assumptions are Gases consist of molecules in constant, random motion.Gases consist of molecules in constant, random motion. P arises from collisions with container walls.P arises from collisions with container walls. No attractive or repulsive forces between molecules. Collisions elastic.No attractive or repulsive forces between molecules. Collisions elastic. Volume of molecules is negligible.Volume of molecules is negligible.

16 © 2006 Brooks/Cole - Thomson Kinetic Molecular Theory Because we assume molecules are in motion, they have a kinetic energy. KE = (1/2)(mass)(speed) 2 At the same T, all gases have the same average KE. As T goes up for a gas, KE also increases and so does speed.
