Pressure and Temperature William Thomson “Lord Kelvin”

2
CA Standards

3
Measuring Pressure The first device for measuring atmospheric pressure was developed by Evangelista Torricelli during the 17 th century. The device was called a “barometer” Baro = weight Meter = measure

4
An Early Barometer The normal pressure due to the atmosphere at sea level can support a column of mercury that is 760 mm high.

5
Pressure Is caused by the collisions of molecules with the walls of a container is equal to force/unit area

6
Standard Pressure 1 standard atmosphere (atm) 1 standard atmosphere (atm) 101.3 kPa (kilopascals) 14.7 lbs/in2 760 mm Hg (millimeters of mercury) 760 torr

7
Pressure UnitSymbolDefinition/Relationship PascalPaSI pressure unit 1 Pa = 1 newton/meter 2 Millimeter of mercury mm HgPressure that supports a 1 mm column of mercury in a barometer AtmosphereatmAverage atmospheric pressure at sea level and 0 C Torrtorr1 torr = 1 mm Hg Pressure is the force created by the collisions of molecules with the walls of a container

8
The Kelvin Scale

9
Standard Temperature Standard Temperature equals: 273 Kelvin (273 K) 0 C

10
Converting Celsius to Kelvin Gas law problems involving temperature require that the temperature be in KELVINS! Kelvins = C + 273 °C = Kelvins - 273

11
Standard Temperature and Pressure “STP” Either of these: 273 Kelvin (273 K) 0 C Either of these: 273 Kelvin (273 K) 0 C And any one of these: 1 atm 1 atm 101.3 kPa 14.7 lbs/in 2 (psi) 760 mm Hg 760 torr And any one of these: 1 atm 1 atm 101.3 kPa 14.7 lbs/in 2 (psi) 760 mm Hg 760 torr
