Pressure Volume & Temperature
In liquids and solids, the primary particles (atoms or molecules) are always in contact with each other. In gases, particles move independently. Because the atoms of gases are far apart they are very compressible.
When pressure is applied, the volume occupied by a gas can be decreased. Gases fill all of the space available to them. In a contained sample (e.g. balloon) gases expand to fill the total volume of the balloon. If not contained: Gases expand indefinitely.
If the cubic meter were divided into 1000 equal smaller parts, each part would be equal to 1 Liter (slightly larger than a quart) 1 qt = L If each liter were divided into 1000 equal smaller parts, each part would be equal to 1 milliliter (mL) or 1 cubic centimeter (cc) 1 mL = 1 cc
Space occupied in 3 dimensions. Units: liters One liter is similar in volume to a quart 1 qt = L One liter is equal to 1,000 cubic centimeters
Force per unit of area. Force / area = lbs / sq.in Pounds per square inch = psi 14.7 psi = 1 atm 1 mm Hg = 1 torr 1 atm = 760 mm Hg
Increase the pressure Volume decreases proportionally Pressure x Volume = constant Product of pressure and volume is fixed. P x V = constant P1 x V1 = P2 x V2
Compressed gas cylinder Pressure = 135 atm Volume = 15.0 liters What volume the gas will occupy at 1.00 atm ? P1 = 135 atm V1 = 15.0 L P2 = 1.00 atm
Determine V2 P1 x V1 = P2 x V2 V2 = ( P1 x V1 ) / P2 V2 = ( 135 atm ) ( 15.0 L ) / 1.00 atm = 2,030 liters
Increase the temperature Volume will increase proportionally. The volume of a sample divided by the temperature is equal to a constant. V / T = constant V1 / T1 = V2 / T2
Determine the final volume of a 0.35 liter balloon which is heated from room temperature to 100 degrees C. V1 / T1 = V2 / T2 Convert all temperatures to Kelvins. T1 = 25 °C = 298 K T2 = 100 °C = 373 K
We can combine all of these laws to get a combined gas law: P V / T = constant P1 x V1 / T1 = P2 x V2 / T2 This law holds for a fixed amount of gas (or a fixed number of moles, n ).
Start with 2.37 liters of 25.0 °C ( 298 K ) and 1 atmosphere Heat it to 297 °C ( 570 K ). Increase the pressure to 10 atmospheres. What is the final volume? *Note: Upon heating, volume will increase. But on compression, volume will decrease. Opposing forces
P1 x V1 / T1 = P2 x V2 / T2 Solve for V2 (isolate the variable): V2 = [ P1 x V1 / T1 ] x ( T2 / P2 ) Express as a product of ratios: V2 = V1 x [ P1 / P2 ] x [ T2 / T1 ]
P1 / P2 = 1 / 10 T2 / T1 = 570 / 298 V2 = ( 2.37 ) ( 1 / 10 ) ( 570 / 298) V2 = ( 2.37 ) ( 0.19 ) = L *Note: Ratio of pressures = 0.10 < 1 Ratio of temps = 1.91 > 1 They offset each other.
P V = n R T n = # of moles of gas R = liter * atm / mol * K PV / nT = constant ( P1 x V1 ) / ( n1 x T1 ) = ( P2 x V2 ) / ( n2 x T2 )
Calculate the volume of 1 mole of Ideal Room temp (298 K) and pressure (1 atm). P V = n R T V = n R T / PV = ( 1.0 ) ( ) ( 273 ) / 1.0 = 22.4 L
11.2 L tank of gas is found in the coldest part of the refrigerator (0 °C = 273 K). It contains 4 moles of gas: (1 mole of oxygen and 3 moles of neon). What is the pressure in the tank? P = nRT / V = = ( 4.0 )( ) ( 273 ) / 11.2 = 7.91 atm
