1 Chapter 17: Thermal Behavior of Matter
Equations of state State variables and equations of state Variables that describes the state of the material are called state variables: pressure, volume, temperature, amount of substance The volume V of a substance is usually determined by its pressure p, temperature T, and amount of substance, described by the mass m In a few cases the relationship among p, V, T and m (or n) is simple enough to be expressed by an equation called the equation of state For complicated cases, we can use graphs or numerical tables.

2 Equations of state (cont’d)
Ideal gas An ideal gas is a collection of atoms or molecules that move randomly and exert no long-range forces on each other. Each particle of the ideal gas is individually point-like, occupying a negligible volume. Low-density/low-pressure gases behave like ideal gases. Most gases at room temperature and atmospheric pressure can be approximately treated as ideal gases.

3 Equations of state (cont’d)
Definition of a mole One mole (mol) of any substance is that amount of the substance that contains as many particles (atoms, or other particles) as there are atoms in 12 g of the isotope carbon-12 12C. This number is called Avogadro’s number and is equal to 6.02 x 1023. One atomic mass unit (u) is equal to 1.66x10-24 g. The mass m of an Avogadro’s number of carbon-12 atoms is : The mass per atom for a given element is: 1.66x10-24=1/6.02x1023

4 Equations of state (cont’d)
Definition of a mole (cont’d) The same number of particles is found in a mole of a substance. Atomic mass of hydrogen 1H is 1 u, and that of carbon 12C is 12 u. 12 g of 12C consists of exactly NA atoms of 12C. The molecular mass of molecular hydrogen H2 is 2u, and NA molecules are in 2 g of H2 gas. Molar mass of a substance The molar mass of a substance is defined as the mass of one mole of that substance, usually expressed in grams per mole. Number of moles The number of moles of a substances n is: m : mass of the substance

5 Equation of state (cont’d)
Ideal gas equation (Equation of state for ideal gas) Boyle’s law When a gas is kept at a constant temperature, its pressure is inversely proportional to its volume. Charles’s law When the pressure of a gas is kept constant, its volume is directly proportional to the temperature. Gay-Lussac’s law When the volume of a gas is kept constant, its pressure is directly proportional to the temperature. p : pressure, V : volume, T : temperature in K R : universal gas constant 8.31 J/(mole K) L atm/(mol K) 1 L (litre) = 103 cm3 = 10-3 m3 Ideal gas equation: The volume occupied by 1 mol of an ideal gas at atmospheric pressure and at 0oC is 22.4 L

6 Equations of state (cont’d)
The ideal gas equation total mass = # of moles times molar mass # of moles gas const. Ideal-gas equation: An ideal gas is one for which the above equation holds precisely for all pressure and temperatures. density constant for constant mass

7 Equations of state (cont’d)
The ideal gas equation (cont’d) The condition called standard temperature and pressure (STP) for a gas is defined to be a temperature of 0 oC= K and a pressure of 1 atm = x 105 Pa. Example 18.1 If you want to keep a mole of an ideal gas in your room at STP, how big a container do you need?

8 Equations of state (cont’d)
The van der Waals equation The ideal gas equation can be derived from a simple molecular model that ignores: the volumes of the molecules themselves the attractive forces between them The van der Waals equation makes corrections for these short-comings. reduces volume of gas due to finite size of molecules The attractive intermolecular forces reduces the pressure by gas A constant that depends on the attractive intermolecular forces. A constant that represents the size of a gas molecule

9 Equations of state (cont’d)
pV diagram and phases Non-ideal gasses behave differently because the attractive forces between molecules become comparable to or greater than the kinetic energy of motion ideal gas behavior pV=const The molecules are pulled closer together and the volume V is less than for an ideal gas const.temp. c is called the critical point For T<Tc a gas will liquify under increased pressure For T>Tc a gas will not liquify under pressure

10 Molecular properties of matter
Molecules and phases of matter All familiar matter is made up of molecules. The smallest size of a molecule is about of order of m. Larger molecules may have a size of 10-6 m. The force between molecules in a gas varies with distance r between molecules. The major source of the force in this case is electro- magnetic interaction between them. A molecule that has energy E>E0 (see below) can move around as depicted in the figure. A molecule with E>0 (see below) can escape as in gaseous phase of matter. U(r) r In solids molecules vibrate around fixed point more or less. r E<0 E0 A molecule in liquid has slightly higher energy than in solid.

28 Exercises Problem 1 A hot-air balloon stays aloft because hot air at atmospheric pressure is less dense than cooler air at the same pressure. If the volume of the balloon is 500 m3 and the surrounding air is at 15.0oC, what must the temperature of the air in the balloon be for it to lift a total load 290 kg (in addition to the mass of the hot air)? The density of air at 15.0oC and atmospheric pressure is 1.23 kg/m3. Solution The density of the hot air must be where is the density of the ambient air and m is the load. The density is inversely proportional to the temperature, so

29 Exercises Problem 2 The vapor pressure is the pressure of the vapor phase of a substance when it is in equilibrium with the solid or liquid phase of the substance. The relative humidity is the partial pressure of water vapor in the air divided by the vapor pressure of water at that same temperature, expressed as a percentage. The air is saturated when the humidity is 100%. a) The vapor pressure of water at 20.0oC is 2.34 x 103 Pa.
