Unit 9: The Gas Laws Chemistry
~78% The Atmosphere an “ocean” of gases mixed together Composition nitrogen (N 2 )………….. oxygen (O 2 )…………… argon (Ar)……………... carbon dioxide (CO 2 )… water vapor (H 2 O)……. Trace amounts of: ~21% ~1% ~0.04% ~0.1% He, Ne, Rn, SO 2, CH 4, N x O x, etc.
Depletion of the Ozone Layer O 3 depletion is caused by chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs). Uses for CFCs: refrigerants Ozone (O 3 ) in upper atmosphere blocks ultraviolet (UV) light from Sun. UV causes skin cancer and cataracts. O 3 is replenished with each strike of lightning. aerosol propellants -- banned in U.S. in 1996 CFCs

Greenhouse Effect Light from the sun: UV, viz, IR Light is absorbed by Earth and re- radiated into the atmosphere as heat (IR) Some heat (IR) lost to outer space Kelter, Carr, Scott, Chemistry A Wolrd of Choices 1999, page 392 Greenhouse gases absorb heat (IR), and radiate it back into the atmosphere
Why more CO 2 in atmosphere now than 500 years ago? -- burning of fossil fuelsdeforestation urban sprawl wildlife areas rain forests coal petroleum natural gas wood * The burning of ethanol won’t slow greenhouse effect… C 2 H 5 OH + O 2 CO 2 + H 2 O
Carbon Dioxide Levels Zumdahl, Zumdahl, DeCoste, World of Chemistry 2002, page Year Atmospheric CO 2 (ppm)
What can we do? 1. Reduce consumption of fossil fuels. At home: On the road: 2. Support environmental organizations. 3. Rely on alternate energy sources. insulate home; run dishwasher full; avoid temp. extremes (A/C & furnace); wash clothes on “warm,” not “hot” bike instead of drive; carpool; energy-efficient vehicles solar, wind energy, hydroelectric power
The Kinetic Molecular Theory (KMT) deals w/“ideal” gas particles… 1. …are so small that they are assumed to have zero volume 2. …are in constant, straight-line motion 3. …experience elastic collisions in whichelastic collisions no energy is lost 4. …have no attractive or repulsive forces toward each other 5.…have an average kinetic energy (KE) that is proportional to the absolute temp. of gas (i.e., Kelvin temp.) explains why gases behave as they do as Temp., KE
Collisions of Gas Particles
Theory “works,” except at high pressures and low temps. (attractive forces become significant) N 2 can be pumped into tires to increase tire life KMT “works” liquid nitrogen (N 2 ); the gas condenses into a liquid at –196 o C KMT starts to break down –196 o C H 2 O freezes 37 o C100 o C0oC0oC H 2 O boils body temp. liquid N 2
Model Gas Behavior All collisions must be elastic Take one step per beat of the metronome Container –Class stands outside tape box Higher temperature –Faster beats of metronome Decreased volume –Divide box in half More Moles –More students are inside box Mark area of container with tape on ground. Add only a few molecules of inert gas Increase temperature Decrease volume Add more gas Effect of diffusion Effect of effusion (opening size)
** Two gases w/same # of particles and at same temp. and pressure have the same kinetic energy. KE is related to mass and velocity: KE = ½ m v 2 More massive gas particles are _______ than less massive gas particles (on average). = ½ m1m1 m2m2 v1v1 v2v2 KE 1 KE same temp. To keep same KE, as m, v must OR as m, v must. slower same KE

Graham’s Law Consider two gases at same temp. Gas 1: KE 1 = ½ m 1 v 1 2 Gas 2: KE 2 = ½ m 2 v 2 2 Since temp. is same, then…KE 1 = KE 2 ½ m 1 v 1 2 = ½ m 2 v 2 2 m 1 v 1 2 = m 2 v 2 2 Divide both sides by m 1 v 2 2 … Take sq. rt. of both sides to get Graham’s Law: ** To use Graham’s Law, both gases must be at same temp.
diffusion:effusion: particle movement from high to low conc. (perfume) For gases, rates of diffusion & effusion obey Graham’s law: diffusion of gas particles through an opening (balloon) NET MOVEMENT more massive = slow; less massive = fast

Gas Pressure Pressure occurs when a force is dispersed over a given surface area. If F acts over a large area… But if F acts over a small area… F A = P A P = F (e.g., your weight)

Derivation of the Combined Gas Law Consider a sample of gas under the conditions of P 1, V 1, and T 1. P 1 V 1 = n R T 1 Now, change the gas sample’s conditions to P 2, V 2, and T 2. P 2 V 2 = n R T 2 (A) (B) But n and R are the same for both (A) and (B). Solve each equation for the quantity n x R. n R = P 1 V 1 T1T1 = P 2 V 2 T2T2 This is the combined gas law.
P 1 V 1 = P 2 V 2 The Combined Gas Law P = pres. (any unit)1 = initial conditions V = vol. (any unit)2 = final conditions T = temp. (K) A gas has vol. 4.2 L at 110 kPa. If temp. is constant, find pres. of gas when vol. changes to 11.3 L. 110(4.2) = P 2 (11.3) P 2 = 40.9 kPa 11.3

Dalton’s Law of Partial Pressure In a gaseous mixture, a gas’s partial pressure is the one the gas would exert if it were by itself in the container. The mole ratio in a mixture of gases determines each gas’s partial pressure. John Dalton (1766–1844) Since air is ~80% N 2, (i.e., 8 out of every 10 air-gas moles is a mole of N 2 ), then the partial pressure of N 2 accounts for ~80% of the total air pressure. At sea level, where P ~100 kPa, N 2 accounts for ~80 kPa.
Total pressure of mixture (3.0 mol He and 4.0 mol Ne) is 97.4 kPa. Find partial pressure of each gas. = 41.7 kPa = 55.7 kPa Dalton’s Law: the total pressure exerted by a mixture of gases is the sum of all the partial pressures P Tot = P A2 + P B2 + …
