Physical Characteristics of Gases
Gases assume the volume and shape of their containers. Gases are the most compressible state of matter. Gases will mix evenly and completely when confined to the same container. Gases have much lower densities than liquids and solids.

## Atomic mass unit, u

By international agreement, the reference element is chosen to be the most abundant type of carbon, called carbon-12, and its atomic mass is defined to be exactly twelve atomic mass units, or 12 u.

Molecular mass
The molecular mass of a molecule is the sum of the atomic masses of its atoms. For instance, hydrogen and oxygen have atomic masses of 1.007 94 u and 15.9994 u, respectively. The molecular mass of a water molecule (H2O) is: 2(1.007 94 u) + 15.9994 u = 18.0153 u.

The number of atoms per mole is known as Avogadro's number NA, after the Italian scientist Amedeo Avogadro (17761856):

Number of moles
The number of moles n contained in any sample is the number of particles N in the sample divided by the number of particles per mole NA (Avogadro's number):

The number of moles contained in a sample can also be found from its mass.

BOYLES LAW
DEFINITION

The volume of a gas is inversely proportional to the absolute pressure applied to it when temperature is constant

BOYLES LAW
GRAPH :

BOYLES LAW
FORMULA

P 1/V P x V = constant P1 x V1 = P2 x V2
Constant temperature Constant amount of gas

BOYLES LAW
Example : A sample of chlorine gas occupies a volume of 946 mL at a pressure of 726 mmHg. What is the pressure of the gas (in mmHg) if the volume is reduced at constant temperature to 154 mL?
P1 x V1 = P2 x V2 P1 = 726 mmHg V1 = 946 mL P2 = P1 x V1 V2 = P2 = ? V2 = 154 mL

## 726 mmHg x 946 mL 154 mL

= 4460 mmHg

A sample of carbon monoxide gas occupies 3.20 L at 125 0C. At what temperature will the gas occupy a volume of 1.54 L if the pressure remains constant?
V1/T1 = V2/T2 V1 = 3.20 L T1 = 398.15 K V2 x T 1 V1 V2 = 1.54 L T2 = ? 1.54 L x 398.15 K 3.20 L = 192 K

Gay-lussacS LAW
DEFINITION

The absolute pressure of a gas is directly proportional to the absolute temperature when the volume is constant

Gay-lussacS LAW
GRAPH :

Temperature is a measure of average kinetic energy. As temperature increases, particles move faster. As the temperature of a gas increases the particles will hit the walls with more force.

Gay-lussacS LAW
FORMULA

## PT P = constant x T P1/T1 = P2/T2

Constant volume Constant amount of gas, n

Gay-lussacS LAW
A gas has a pressure at 2.0 atm at 18C. What is the new pressure when the temperature is 62C? (V and n constant).

## 1. Set up a data table; Conditions 1 P1 = 2.0 atm

Conditions 2 P2 T2 =

## = 62C + 273 = 335 K

Gay-lussacS LAW
2. Solve Gay-Lussacs Law for P2: P1 = P2 T1 T2 P2 = P1 x T2 T1 P2 = 2.0 atm x 335 K = 2.3 atm 291 K
Temperature ratio increases pressure

## Ideal gas LAW

Absolute temperature
Temperature measured using the Kelvin scale where zero is absolute zero. Kelvin scale is a thermodynamic (absolute) temperature scale where absolute zero, the theoretical absence of all thermal energy, is zero (0 K). Kelvin unit and its scale, by international agreement, are defined by two points: absolute zero, and the triple point.

Absolute temperature
Absolute zero is the temperature at which nothing could be colder and no heat energy remains in a substance - exactly 0 K and 273.15 C. The triple point of water is, by definition, exactly 273.16 K and 0.01 C. This definition does three things: It fixes the magnitude of the kelvin unit as being exactly 1 part in 273.16 of the difference between absolute zero and the triple point of water; It establishes that one kelvin has exactly the same magnitude as a onedegree increment on the Celsius scale; It establishes the difference between the two scales null points as being exactly 273.15 kelvins (0 K 273.15 C and 273.16 K 0.01 C).

Absolute temperature
Triple Point of water : The point where water in the solid, liquid and gas states can coexist in equilibrium. The pressure of triple point is 4.58 torr and the temperature is 0.01 degree Celsius.

P = Pressure in the thermometer when it is at point where T is determined PTP = Pressure of gas in the thermometer at the triple point temperature of water

REAL gas
DEFINITION

Most like an ideal gas when the real gas is at low pressure and high temperature.

REAL gas
At high pressures gas particles are close therefore the volume of the gas particles is considered. At low temperatures gas particles have low kinetic energy therefore particles have some attractive force In real gases, particles attract each other reducing the pressure Real gases behave more like ideal gases as pressure approaches zero. Example : Dry ice, liquid oxygen and nitrogen

## Kinetic theory of gas

Kinetic Molecular Theory (KMT) for an ideal gas states that all gas particles: are in random, constant, straight-line motion. are separated by great distances relative to their size; the volume of the gas particles is considered negligible. have no attractive forces between them. have collisions that may result in the transfer of energy between gas particles, but the total energy of the system remains constant.

## Kinetic theory of gas

The average translational kinetic energy of the molecules in an ideal gas is directly proportional to the temperature of the gas.
