The simplest model of a gas has all the molecules moving and acting independently. But, with a large number of particles, their average behavior is strictly delineated. Only He, Ne, Ar, Kr, Xe, and Rn are atomic gases. Really, we are looking at a particles-first approach here!

We present the ideal gas first.

Gas molecules move independently. Forces between molecules are nil. Model seems very simple but it explains a great deal!

Some intermolecular forces enter in. Structural effects (in terms of size) of molecules also enter into our discussions.

To give a more general perspective, there are certain things we can measure that lead to understanding the state of a system. A short list:

Pressure (P) Volume (V) Temperature (T) Amount of substance (mass or moles, w or n) Composition (for mixtures; notation later)

A Little Analysis

The properties listed on the previous slide are what we could call observables. One thing we try to do in science is connect observables together if possible. Ideally, we can get an equation of state. Having the equation of state, we then try to go further and explain it in terms of individual particles. That is one of the main things we shall do in this chapter.

P stands for pressure. Pressure = force/unit area On the average, you have 14.7 lb of air above you. This exerts the same pressure on you from all sides! Why? (We explain this verbally.)

Pressure is caused by particles (molecules) hitting you. When a molecule bounces off you, its change of momentum is the force exerted. An equal number is hitting you from all sides! Pressure is thus isotropic.

Units of Pressure

We usually think of pressure in terms of standard atmospheric pressure. The SI unit of pressure is the pascal (Pa). This is 1 Pa = 1 N/m2. 1 atm 101325 Pa (exactly!) The next slide shows some standard pressure units. Ones with exact defintions are marked with an asterisk (*).

Unit Pascal Pounds/in2 Torr (mm Hg) Bar Inches of mercury Atmosphere Abbreviation Pa (= 1 N/m2) psi (or ) torr bar in Hg atm Std. Atmospheric Pressure 101325 Pa (*) 14.6959488 psi 760 torr (*) 1.01325 bar (*) 29.9212598 1 atm (*)

Measuring Pressure

Various instruments are used nowadays. For measuring air pressure, the traditional instrument is the mercury barometer.

Pressures are measured by manometers. Some of these are mechanical but the traditional instruments use columns of Hg. At the right is an openended manometer. Note that we have to correct for atmospheric pressure!

Simple Closed-End Manometer A McLeod Gauge (Low Pressures)

Remember our observable variables:

n, P, V, and T

For the various laws, we keep two of these constant and note how the remaining two are related. We examine these in the next few slides...

Boyles Law

T and n held constant. V is inversely proportional to P. Or, PV = constant. Boyle is watching us to the right!

Charless Law

Here, we hold n and P constant and observe V vs. T. VT V = (const) T Needless to say, Charles very much approves of us using his work!

All gases extrapolate to the same point. This is -273.15C. This is also 0.00 K. In other words, this is the first place that the concept of absolute zero appears. T(K) = T(C) + 273.15

If V and n are held constant, we can look at P vs. T. P T. Or, P = (const) T. This the law of GayLussac (not mentioned in book). Gay-Lussac...

Avogadros Law

Here, we hold P and T constant and observe V vs. n. This is really where the concept of the mole was first proposed. Credit for this goes to Avogadro... ...who, of course, is also watching us!

Values of R

We can exploit this sometimes to get a combined gas law (verbal discussion)...

We look at how this handles the following

Boyles Law case... Charles Law case... Avogadros Law case... Single gas sample at different P, V, and T (same n)

In all this...

Watch your units! We especially need to watch R! Also, how do we best handle changes in pressure, temperature, and energy units. We shall now discuss some of these topics!

NA = 6.0221415

I. Molar Volume II. Gas Density III. Molar Mass (molecular weight) of a Gas

Molar Volume

STP means standard temperature at pressure P = 1 atm (exactly) T = 0.00C = 273.15K Under these conditions, V = 22.4L for all ideal gases!

density = mass/volume Units:

g/L (gases) g/mL (liquids & solids) kg/m3 (SI unit)

Density of a gas...

This is important! This is a method of determining molar mass (aka molecular weight) The equation is to the right...

Ideal gases in a mixture exert their pressures independently. This is called Daltons Law of Partial Pressures. We show some math in the next slide...

Useful Relations...

A common method of collecting gaseous products of reactions. Works well as long as the gas is not soluble in water! This is the first time that we encounter vapor pressure.

Gas Stoichiometry

Before we get started on this, please remember that we have two definitions for a mole: In terms of mass. In terms of the ideal gas law.

In his prime!

After too much pHun with gases!

1) Write the balanced chemical equation. 2) Place the relevant coefficients below the equation. 3) Place the relevant number of moles above the equation. 4) Construct the needed equation from ratios. 5) Solve this equation for whatever you are looking for (pressure, moles, mass, volume, etc.)

An Abstract Example

How many grams of B are needed to produce V mL of a gas, C, at a given P and T? The way to set this up is shown to the right.

I. Write the balanced chemical equation (BCE) and construct the algebraic solution for a given problem by use of ratios. II. Use conversion factors as shown in the book.

This is a very simple model. But it gives a lot of profound conclusions. Coupled with quantum mechanics, it actually predicts the ideal gas law. We shall skip the QM however! And look at other things more relevant to us!

Some Postulates...

I. The size of gas particles is negligibly small. II. The average kinetic energy of a particle is proportional to the temperature (in K). III. All collisions between particles and with the walls of the container are completely elastic.

pHun (continued)...

And...................

Major Point!

In a gas at a given temperature, lighter particles travel faster (on average) than do heavier ones! BUT, all have the same (average) kinetic energy!

Remember...

R = 8.314472 J/molK MSI is in kg/mol (!)

(This is the SI unit for MW)

T is in Kelvins.

Average Velocity Most Probable Velocity

A Comparison...

A Graphical View

Diffusion This is the process whereby two gases mix. Basically, the molecules mix while colliding. This is influenced by the mean free path (discussed shortly). Effusion This is the rate of escape of molecules through a pin hole into a vacuum. How this (and diffusion) are handled by kinetic theory is shown in the next slide.

A Picture of Effusion

The rate of effusion (diffusion) is inversely proportional to the square root of the molar mass. Derivation on next slide. In the meantime, meet Thomas Graham!

A Short Derivation

Until now, we have been ignoring molecular size. But molecules do collide and do have size. The distance a molecule travels between collisions is called the mean free path.

is the molecular collision diameter in m. P is the pressure in pascals. R is in J/molK. This is just a bonus equation and will not be on exams!

We shall assume STP. The molecular diameter of O2 is 361 pm. We shall analyze the units on the board. (Under the conditions of this problem, O2 travels about 180 molecular diameters before colliding.)

Monatomic Gas Diatomic Gas

Examples (25.00C)

Helium Nitrogen

Real Gases

These differ from ideal gases in the following ways:

Real molecules are not pointsthey have size. There are attractive forces between the molecules.

Ideal Gas Volume Correction

Ideal Behavior Pressure Correction

Multiplying the Corrected Values Together Gives the van der Waals Equation

The form of the equation comes from good physical arguments. But, a and b must be obtained experimentally. A table of these is to the right...

The vdw equation is an equation of state for real gases. It is about the simplest one that works well. But, it is not perfect! There are many other equations! As you can see, van der Waals was proud of it!

Z = PV/RT is called the compressibility factor of a gas. Z = 1 for an ideal gas. Real gases are much more interesting! See the slide to the right (gases at 273K)...
