The Combined Gas Law

Manipulating Variables in equations Often in an equation we want to isolate some variable, usually the unknown From math: what ever you do to one side of an equation you have to do to the other side Doing this keeps both sides the same E.g. x + 5 = 7, what does x equal? We subtract 5 from both sides … x + 5 – 5 = 7 – 5, thus x = 2 Alternatively, we can represent this as 5 moving to the other side of the equals sign … x + 5 = 7 becomes x = 7 – 5 or x = 2 Thus, for addition or subtraction, when you change sides you change signs

3
Multiplication and division We can do a similar operation with multiplication and division E.g. 5x = 7, what does x equal? We divide each side by 5 (to isolate x) … 5x/5 = 7/5 … x = 7/5 … x = 1.4 Alternatively, we can represent this as 5 moving to the other side of the equals sign … 5x = 7 becomes x = 7/5 Thus, for multiplication and division, when you change sides you change position (top to bottom, bottom to top)

4
Multiplication and division Lets look at a more complicated example: (x) (y) 5 = 7a7a b Isolate a in the equation: Move b to the other side (from bottom to top) 5b (x) (y) = 7a7a (x)(y)(b) 5 = 7a7a (5)(7) =a or Move 7 to the other side (from top to bottom) (x)(y)(b) (35) =a

5
Multiplication and division This time, isolate b in the equation: (x) (y) 5 = 7a b Move b to the other side (it must be on top) … (x) (y) 5 = 7a b Move everything to the other side of b 35a xy =b (b)(x)(y) 5 = 7a Q - Rearrange the following equation to isolate each variable (you should have 6 equations) P 1 V 1 P 2 V 2 T 1 T 2 =

Combining the gas laws So far we have seen two gas laws: Jacques Charles Robert Boyle P1V1P1V1 =P2V2P2V2 V1V1 T1T1 = V2V2 T2T2 These are all subsets of a more encompassing law: the combined gas law P1P1 T1T1 = P2P2 T2T2 Read pages 437, 438.
