1 Equations of State Compiled by: Gan Chin Heng / Shermon Ong 07S06G / 07S06H

2 How are states represented? Diagrammatically (Phase diagrams) Temp Pressure Gas Solid Liquid Triple point Critical point

3 How are states represented? Mathematically  Using equations of state  Relate state variables to describe property of matter  Examples of state variables Pressure Volume Temperature

4 Equations of state Mainly used to describe fluids  Liquids  Gases Particular emphasis today on gases

5 ABCs of gas equations Avogadro’s Law Boyle’s Law Charles’ Law A B C

6 Avogadro’s Law At constant temperature and pressure  Volume of gas proportionate to amount of gas  i.e. V  n Independent of gas’ identity Approximate molar volumes of gas  24.0 dm 3 at 298K  22.4 dm 3 at 273K

7 Boyle’s Law At constant temperature and amounts  Gas’ volume inversely proportionate to pressure, i.e. V  1/p  The product of V & p, which is constant, increases with temperature

8 Charles’ Law At constant pressure and amounts  Volume proportionate to temperature, i.e. V  T  T is in Kelvins Note the extrapolated lines (to be explained later)

9 Combining all 3 laws… V  (1/p)(T)(n) V  nT/p Rearranging, pV = (constant)nT Thus we get the ideal gas equation: pV = nRT

10 Assumptions Ideal gas particles occupy negligible volume Ideal gas particles have negligible intermolecular interactions

11 But sadly assumptions fail…Nothing is ideal in this world… Real gas particles have considerable intermolecular interactions Real gas particles DO occupy finite volume It’s downright squeezy here

12 Failures of ideal gas equation Failure of Charles’ Law  At very low temperatures  Volume do not decrease to zero  Gas liquefies instead  Remember the extrapolated lines?

13 Failures of ideal gas equation From pV = nRT, let V m be molar volume  pV m = RT  pV m / RT = 1 pV m / RT is also known as Z, the compressibility factor Z should be 1 at all conditions for an ideal gas

14 Failures of ideal gas equation Looking at Z plot of real gases… Obvious deviation from the line Z=1 Failure of ideal gas equation to account for these deviations

15 So how? A Dutch physicist named Johannes Diderik van der Waals devised a way...

16 Johannes Diderik van der Waals November 23, 1837 – March 8, 1923 Dutch 1910 Nobel Prize in Physics

17 So in 1873… Scientific community I can approximate the behaviour of fluids with an equation ORLY? YARLY!

18 Van der Waals Equation Modified from ideal gas equation Accounts for:  Non-zero volumes of gas particles (repulsive effect)  Attractive forces between gas particles (attractive effect)

19 Van der Waals Equation Attractive effect  Pressure = Force per unit area of container exerted by gas molecules  Dependent on: Frequency of collision Force of each collision  Both factors affected by attractive forces  Each factor dependent on concentration (n/V)

20 Van der Waals Equation  Hence pressure changed proportional to (n/V) 2  Letting a be the constant relating p and (n/V) 2 …  Pressure term, p, in ideal gas equation becomes [p+a(n/V) 2 ]

21 Van der Waals Equation Repulsive effect  Gas molecules behave like small, impenetrable spheres  Actual volume available for gas smaller than volume of container, V  Reduction in volume proportional to amount of gas, n

22 Van der Waals Equation  Let another constant, b, relate amount of gas, n, to reduction in volume  Volume term in ideal gas equation, V, becomes (V-nb)

23 Van der Waals Equation Combining both derivations… We get the Van der Waals Equation

24 Van der Waals Equation -> So what’s the big deal? Real world significances  Constants a and b depend on the gas identity  Relative values of a and b can give a rough comparison of properties of both gases

25 Van der Waals Equation -> So what’s the big deal? Value of constant a  Gives a rough indication of magnitude of intermolecular attraction  Usually, the stronger the attractive forces, the higher is the value of a  Some values (L 2 bar mol -2 ): Water: HCl: Neon:

26 Van der Waals Equation -> So what’s the big deal? Value of constant b  Gives a rough indication of size of gas molecules  Usually, the bigger the gas molecules, the higher is the value of b  Some values (L mol -1 ): Benzene: Ethane: Helium:

27 Critical temperature and associated constants

28 Critical temperature? Given a p-V plot of a real gas… At higher temperatures T 3 and T 4, isotherm resembles that of an ideal gas

29 Critical temperature? At T 1 and V 1, when gas volume decreased, pressure increases From V 2 to V 3, no change in pressure even though volume decreases Condensation taking place and pressure = vapor pressure at T 1 Pressure rises steeply after V 3 because liquid compression is difficult

30 Critical temperature? At higher temperature T 2, plateau region becomes shorter At a temperature T c, this ‘plateau’ becomes a point T c is the critical temperature Volume at that point, V c = critical volume Pressure at that point, P c = critical pressure

31 Critical temperature At T > T c, gas can’t be compressed into liquid At T c, isotherm in a p-V graph will have a point of inflection  1 st and 2 nd derivative of isotherm = 0 We shall look at a gas obeying the Van der Waals equation

32 VDW equation and critical constants Using VDW equation, we can derive the following

33 VDW equation and critical constants At T c, V c and P c, it’s a point of inflexion on p- V m graph

34 VDW equation and critical constants

35 Qualitative trends  As seen from formula, bigger molecules decrease critical temperature  Stronger IMF increase critical temperature Usually outweighs size factor as bigger molecules have greater id-id interaction  Real values: Water: 647K Oxygen: 154.6K Neon: 44.4K Helium: 5.19K

36 Compressibility Factor

37 Recall Z plot? Z = pV m / RT; also called the compressibility factor Z should be 1 at all conditions for an ideal gas

38 Compressibility Factor For real gases, Z not equals to 1 Z = V m / V m,id Implications:  At high p, V m > V m,id, Z > 1  Repulsive forces dominant

39 Compressibility Factor  At intermediate p, Z < 1  Attractive forces dominant  More significant for gases with significant IMF

40 Boyle Temperature Z also varies with temperature At a particular temperature  Z = 1 over a wide range of pressures That means gas behaves ideally Obeys Boyle’s Law (recall V  1/p) This temperature is called Boyle Temperature

41 Boyle Temperature  Mathematical implication Initial gradient of Z-p plot = 0 at T dZ/dp = 0  For a gas obeying VDW equation T B = a / Rb Low Boyle Temperature favoured by weaker IMF and bigger gas molecules

42 Virial Equations

43 Recall compressibility factor Z?  Z = pV m /RT  Z = 1 for ideal gases What about real gases?  Obviously Z ≠ 1 So how do virial equations address this problem?

44 Virial Equations Form  pV m /RT = 1 + B/V m + C/V m 2 + D/V m 3 + …  pV m /RT = 1 + B’p + C’p 2 + D’p 3 + … B,B’,C,C’,D & D’ are virial coefficients  Temperature dependent  Can be derived theoretically or experimentally

45 Virial Equations Most flexible form of state equation  Terms can be added when necessary  Accuracy can be increase by adding infinite terms For same gas at same temperature  Coefficients B and B’ are proportionate but not equal to each other

46 Summary

47 States can be represented using diagrams or equations Ideal Gas Equation combines Avagadro's, Boyle's and Charles' Laws Assumptions of Ideal Gas Equation fail for real gases, causing deviations Van der Waals Gas Equation accounts for attractive and repulsive effects ignored by Ideal Gas Equation

48 Summary Constants a and b represent the properties of a real gas A gas with higher a value usually has stronger IMF A gas with higher b value is usually bigger A gas cannot be condensed into liquid at temperatures higher than its critical temperature

49 Summary Critical temperature is represented as a point of inflexion on a p-V graph Compressibility factor measures the deviation of a real gas' behaviour from that of an ideal gas Boyle Temperature is the temperature where Z=1 over a wide range of pressures Boyle Temperature can be found from Z-p graph where dZ/dp=0

50 Summary Virial equations are highly flexible equations of state where extra terms can be added Virial equations' coefficients are temperature dependent and can be derived experimentally or theoretically
