Gases and Temperature Changes

Kelvin Scale and Absolute Zero x-intercept is –273  C For an “ideal” gas, –273  C is the point at which all molecular motion theoretically ceases 0 K is called “absolute zero” T K =  C + 273

CHARLES' LAW If a gas has a constant mass and is held at a constant pressure then the volume divided by the temperature (in kelvins) is a constant value. V = kT or = k VTVT

Mathematically,

Using a glass syringe, a scientist draws exactly 25.5 cm 3 of dry oxygen at 20°C from a metal cylinder. She heats the syringe to 65 °C. What volume will the oxygen occupy? 1.What are you trying to determine? What volume will the oxygen occupy? V f or V 2

Step 2: Identify what is given: V i = 25.5 cm 3 T i = 20.0 °C T f = 65.0 °C

Step 3: Convert temperatures from °C to K T i = 20.0 °CT f = 65.0 °C = 20.0 °C + 273 = 65.0 °C + 273 = 293 K = 338 K

Step 4: Use equation to determine final volume: = = x 338 K = V f ViTiViTi VfTfVfTf 25.5 293 V f 338 25.5 293 V f = 29.42 cm 3

A balloon is filled with 2.50 L of dry helium at 23.5°C. the balloon is placed in a freezer overnight. The resulting volume is found to be 2.15L. What was the temperature (in °C) in the freezer. 1.What are you trying to determine? What was the temperature (in °C) in the freezer. T f

Step 2: Identify what is given: V i = 2.50 L T i = 23.5 °C V f = 2.15 L Step 3: Convert temperature from °C to K T i = 23.5 °C + 273 = 297 K

Step 4: Use equation to determine final temperature: = 2.50 L (T f ) = 297K (2.15L) T f = 255.42K ViTiViTi VfTfVfTf 2.50 297 2.15 T f C ross multiply Divide by 2.50L to isolate T f

Step 5: Convert the temperature back to °C T f = 255.42K – 273 = -17.6 °C
