Properties of Gases In organized soccer, a ball that is properly inflated will rebound faster and travel farther than a ball that is under-inflated. If the pressure is too high, the ball may burst when it is kicked. You will study variables that affect the pressure of a gas.
Compressibility – Why are gases easier to compress than solids or liquids are?
Compressibility – Compressibility is a measure of how much the volume of matter decreases under pressure. When a person collides with an inflated airbag, the compression of the gas absorbs the energy of the impact.
Compressibility – Gases are easily compressed because of the space between the particles in a gas. – The distance between particles in a gas is much greater than the distance between particles in a liquid or solid. – Under pressure, the particles in a gas are forced closer together.
Compressibility At room temperature, the distance between particles in an enclosed gas is about 10 times the diameter of a particle.
Factors Affecting Gas Pressure – What are the three factors that affect gas pressure?
Factors Affecting Gas Pressure – The amount of gas, volume, and temperature are factors that affect gas pressure. Four variables are generally used to describe a gas. The variables and their common units are – pressure (P) in kilopascals – volume (V) in liters – temperature (T) in kelvins – the number of moles (n).
Factors Affecting Gas Pressure – Amount of Gas You can use kinetic theory to predict and explain how gases will respond to a change of conditions. If you inflate an air raft, for example, the pressure inside the raft will increase.
Factors Affecting Gas Pressure Collisions of particles with the inside walls of the raft result in the pressure that is exerted by the enclosed gas. Increasing the number of particles increases the number of collisions, which is why the gas pressure increases.
Factors Affecting Gas Pressure If the gas pressure increases until it exceeds the strength of an enclosed, rigid container, the container will burst.

Factors Affecting Gas Pressure – Volume You can raise the pressure exerted by a contained gas by reducing its volume. The more a gas is compressed, the greater is the pressure that the gas exerts inside the container.
Factors Affecting Gas Pressure When the volume of the container is halved, the pressure the gas exerts is doubled.
Factors Affecting Gas Pressure – Temperature An increase in the temperature of an enclosed gas causes an increase in its pressure. As a gas is heated, the average kinetic energy of the particles in the gas increases. Faster-moving particles strike the walls of their container with more energy.

Ideal Gases Solid carbon dioxide, or dry ice, doesn’t melt. It sublimes. Dry ice can exist because gases don’t obey the assumptions of kinetic theory under all conditions. You will learn how real gases differ from the ideal gases on which the gas laws are based.
Ideal Gas Law – What is needed to calculate the amount of gas in a sample at given conditions of volume, temperature, and pressure?
Ideal Gas Law – To calculate the number of moles of a contained gas requires an expression that contains the variable n.
Ideal Gas Law The gas law that includes all four variables—P, V, T, and n—is called the ideal gas law. The ideal gas constant (R) has the value 8.31 (L·kPa)/(K·mol).
Gases: Mixtures and Movements A list of gear for an expedition to Mount Everest includes climbing equipment, ski goggles, a down parka with a hood, and most importantly compressed-gas cylinders of oxygen. You will find out why a supply of oxygen is essential at higher altitudes.
Dalton’s Law – How is the total pressure of a mixture of gases related to the partial pressures of the component gases?
Dalton’s Law The contribution each gas in a mixture makes to the total pressure is called the partial pressure exerted by that gas.
Dalton’s Law – In a mixture of gases, the total pressure is the sum of the partial pressures of the gases.
Dalton’s Law Dalton’s law of partial pressures states that, at constant volume and temperature, the total pressure exerted by a mixture of gases is equal to the sum of the partial pressures of the component gases.
Dalton’s Law Three gases are combined in container T.
Dalton’s Law The partial pressure of oxygen must be 10.67 kPa or higher to support respiration in humans. The climber below needs an oxygen mask and a cylinder of compressed oxygen to survive.
Graham’s Law – How does the molar mass of a gas affect the rate at which the gas effuses or diffuses?
Graham’s Law Diffusion is the tendency of molecules to move from areas of high concentration toward areas of lower concentration until the concentration is uniform throughout.
Graham’s Law Bromine vapor is diffusing upward through the air in a graduated cylinder.
Graham’s Law After several hours, the bromine has diffused almost to the top of the cylinder.
Graham’s Law During effusion, a gas escapes through a tiny hole in its container. – Gases of lower molar mass diffuse and effuse faster than gases of higher molar mass.
Graham’s Law – Thomas Graham’s Contribution Graham’s law of effusion states that the rate of effusion of a gas is inversely proportional to the square root of the gas’s molar mass. This law can also be applied to the diffusion of gases.
Graham’s Law – Comparing Effusion Rates A helium filled balloon will deflate sooner than an air- filled balloon.
Graham’s Law Helium atoms are less massive than oxygen or nitrogen molecules. So the molecules in air move more slowly than helium atoms with the same kinetic energy.
Graham’s Law Because the rate of effusion is related only to a particle’s speed, Graham’s law can be written as follows for two gases, A and B.
