1 1 Kinetic Molecular Theory of Gases 1.A gas is composed of molecules that are separated from each other by distances far greater than their own dimensions. The molecules can be considered to be points; that is, they possess mass but have negligible volume. 2.Gas molecules are in constant motion in random directions, and they frequently collide with one another. Collisions among molecules are perfectly elastic. 3.Gas molecules exert neither attractive nor repulsive forces on one another. 4.The average kinetic energy of the molecules is proportional to the temperature of the gas in kelvins. Any two gases at the same temperature will have the same average kinetic energy KE = ½ mu 2

9 9 KMT – What happens in “real” gases A gas is composed of molecules that are separated from each other by distances far greater than their own dimensions. The molecules can be considered to be points; that is, they possess mass but have negligible volume. Gas molecules are in constant motion in random directions, and they frequently collide with one another. Collisions among molecules are perfectly elastic. Gas molecules exert neither attractive nor repulsive forces on one another. Under what conditions will gases most likely exhibit nonideal behavior??

10 10 Deviations from Ideal Behavior 1 mole of ideal gas PV = nRT n = PV RT = 1.0 Repulsive Forces Attractive Forces

13 13 Given that 3.50 moles of NH 3 occupy 5.20 L at 47˚C, calculate the pressure of the gas (in atm) using the ideal gas law, and then the van der Waals equation. V=5.20 L T=( ) = 3.20x10 2 K n=3.50 mol R= L·atm/K·mol Ideal gas law Van der Waals Equation V=5.20 L T=( ) = 3.20x10 2 K n=3.50 mol a=4.17 atm·L 2 /mol 2 b= L/mol

16 Kinetic Molecular Theory Root mean square speed is an average molecular speed For one mole of a gas KE = 3/2 RT For one molecule Therefore Copyright©2000 by Houghton Mifflin Company.
