**The Composition of Air
**

David Randall

Pressure is the normal component of the force per unit area exerted by fluid molecules. In an ideal fluid the pressure at a point is the same in all directions. The unit of pressure commonly used in the atmospheric sciences is 1 mb = 100 h Pa. Temperature is a measure of the kinetic energy of the random molecular motions. A perfect gas is one that exactly obeys the laws of Boyle and Charles. The equation of state for such a gas is

p! = R"# ,

(1)

where R! is the “specific” gas constant. The specific gas constant varies with the type of gas. Avogadro found that 1 g molecular weight (mole) of any gas occupies 22400 cm 3 at temperature

**! 0 = 0 ! C , at pressure p0 = 1 . (Obviously, this reference temperature and reference pressure have
**

been arbitrarily chosen, and the particular volume measured, i.e. 22400 cm 3 , depends on these choices.) This means that, for the particular case of V0 = 22400 cm 3 , the equation of state becomes

p0V0 = mR!" 0 ,

(2)

where m is the molecular weight. Avogadro’s discovery implies that there exists a universal gas constant:

R* = mR! =

The equation of state can now be written as

p0V0 . "0

R* p! = " . m
