How do you solve these problems?
1. An open manometer, such as the one in figure 15.4, is filled with
mercury and connected to a container of hydrogen. The mercury
level is 62 mm higher in the arm of the tube connected to the gas.
Use this model ( Patm - ht/7.5) kPa
Atmospheric pressure is 97.7 kPa. What
is the pressure of the hydrogen in kilo

Patm – ht/7.5

97.7kPa – (62mm 7.5kPa/mm)

= 97.7 kPa – 8.3 kPa

= 89.4 kPa
Temperature and Heat
• Temperature is the average kinetic energy
of molecules.
• Absolute zero is -273.15oC,
• To convert from Celsius to Kelvin add 273
• To convert to Celsius subtract 273.
• One Celsius degree = 1 Kelvin degree!
Do #9- 12 in class
9. a. 86K - 273K = -187oC
b. 191 K - 273K = - 82oC
c. 533 K - 273K = 260oC 11 a. 559oC
b. 417 oC
d. 321 K - 273K = 48oC c. 111oC
e. 894 K - 273K = 621oC d. -253 oC
e. – 213 oC

10. a. 23oC 12. N2 = 28g/mole

+ 273K = 296 K
F2 = 38 g/mole
b. 58oC + 273K = 331 K CO2 = 44g/mole
O2 = 32 g/mole
c. -90oC + 273K = 183 K
N2 moves the fastest
d. 18oC + 273K = 291 K because it weighs the
+ 273K = 298 K least.
e. 25oC

How do you solve problems with closed end
manometers or barometers?
2. A closed manometer, like the one in figure 15.4, is filled with mercury
and connected to a container of nitrogen. The difference in the
height of mercury in the two arms is 691 mm. What is the pressure
of the nitrogen in kilopascals?

691 mm/ 7.5 mm/kPa

Since the “other side”

has a pressure of zero,
adding or subtracting changes

Pnitrogen = 92.1 kPa

How do you solve these problems?
3. An open manometer connected to a tank of argon has a mercury
level 38 mm higher in the atmospheric arm.
Use this model ( Patm + ht/7.5) kPa
If Atmospheric pressure is 96.3 kPa, what
is the pressure of Argon in kPa?

Patm + ht/7.5

96.3kPa + (38mm 7.5kPa/mm)

= 96.3 kPa – 5.1 kPa

= 101.4 kPa
Answers to homework
• page 382 1-8 (1/2 credit if the work is not shown)
1. 89.4 kPa
2. 92.1 kPa
3. 101.4 kPa
4. 11.5 kPa
5. All matter is composed of small particles; these particles are in constant
motion; all collisions between particles are perfectly elastic.
6. Gas molecules collide with the walls of the container holding the gas,
and each collision exerts a force on the container. The force of collision
and the number of collisions cause pressure.
7. In an open-arm manometer one arm of the U-tube is open to the
atmosphere. The gas being studied exerts pressure on the other arm. In
a closed-arm manometer, there is a vacuum above the liquid in one
arm. If a closed-arm manometer is used to measure atmospheric
pressure, it is called a barometer. An open-arm manometer measures
the difference in pressure between the atmosphere and the gas sample.
A closed-arm manometer measures pressure independently of
atmospheric pressure.
8. 16.0 kPa; 10.7 kPa
# 27. An open manometer like the one in figure 15.4 is used to measure the
pressure of a gas sample. The mercury level is 24 mm higher in the arm
open to the atmosphere What is the pressure, in kilopascals,
of the gas in the container if the air pressure is 100.3 kilopascals?

• Patm = 100.3 + 24/7.5

• Patm = 103.5kPa
# 26. In a closed manometer, assume that the height of the levels
differs by 522 mm Hg. What is the pressure, in kilopascals, of the gas in
the container?

• Pgas = 522/7.5
• Pgas = 69.6 kPa

Answers to the rest of the questions

27. 103.5 kPa
28. 106.7 kPa
29. The temperature increases
directly (proportionally) with an increase
in Kinetic energy.
30. Absolute zero means all molecular
motion ceases (stops).
