Study Guide for Chapters 5 and 6  1. Chapter 5 a. Gas Laws i. Kinetic Molecular Theory 1. All mater is composed of small particles called atoms 2. Atoms are in constant motion unless at absolute zero (0K) 3. The amount of motion is proportional to the temperature. a. With increased temperature, comes increased movement 4. The three states of matter (solid, liquid, gas) differ in the amount of motion in which their particles have, as well as the extent with  which they interact a. Solid­ very little movement, collide often b. Liquid­ expand to fill container, but still remain in contact c. Gas­ expand to fill the space, but separate. Most of the area  a gas takes up is filled with air and not that gas’ particles.  ii. Pressure and Force 1. Pressure is defined as the force over and area  iii. Conditions of STP 1. 0° C 2. 1 ATM (atmospheric pressure) a. 1 atm=760 mmHg=760 torr=101.325 kPa (given on test) 3. 1 mol/ 22.4 L iv. Absolute temperature 1. Absolute zero is 0 K or ­273 °C 2. K= C + 273 v. Gas Law Equation 1. Describes the relationship between pressure, volume, and  temperature as long as the number of particles is constant P1V 1 = P 2V 2 2. T 1 T 2 3. Can be rearranged to solve for any of the variables vi. Dalton’s Law of Partial Pressures 1. The sum of partial pressures of the component gases is equal to the total pressure of the mixture 2. P Total 1+P 2P 3 vii. Avogadro’s Law 1. If temperature and pressure are constant, the number of particles  can be calculated in relation to the volume 2. A specific volume of any gas has the same number of particles V 1 = V 2 3. N 1 N 2 viii. Ideal Gas Law 1.

Ideal vs. Real Gases 1. Ideal gases do not really exist, but nonpolar gases are the closest  2. Expected to have no attraction between molecules, molecules take  up no space, & at high temp/low pressure they will act less like  ideal gases b. Liquids and Solids i. Liquid State 1. Incompressible 2. Viscosity a. Resistance to flow dependent on intermolecular forces i. To flow, bonds must break b. More forces= harder to flow c. Decreases with an increased temperature 3. Surface tension a. Attractive forces help form a skin along the top of a liquid b. Net forces pull down c. Surfactant decreases surface tension 4. Vapor Pressure a. Defined as the number of molecules that can enter into the  atmosphere at equilibrium b. Requires energy to break free, and lose energy to return c. Kinetic theory i. Liquid molecules are in constant motion, with their  average kinetic energy directly proportional to the  kelvin temperature ii. As temperature increases, so does temperature d. Dynamic equilibrium means that the rate of condensation  equals the rate of evaporation i. Evaporation­ liquid to gas ii. Condensation­ gas to liquid 5. Boiling Point a. Boiling point is the point at which vapor pressure equals  atmospheric pressure b. Depends on intermolecular forces  i. Stronger forces= higher boiling point 6. Forces a. Van der Waals i. London Dispersion Forces 1. In all molecules 2. Only force in nonpolar molecules 3. Simplest attraction ii. Dipole­Dipole 1. Only occurs in polar molecules 2.

Have a low melting point 4. Often volatile  iv. Metallic 1. Metal held together with metal bonds, not  covalent bonds 2. Metal Bonds a. Overlapping orbitals b. This causes high electron density  where electrons are extremely  mobile.  c. Allow for conductivity 3. Valence electrons are delocalized, meaning  they are located around the outside (“sea of  electrons”) f. Amorphous g. Sublimation i. The process in which a liquid converts directly to a  gas, without stopping in the liquid phase ii. Ex. Dry ice iii. Properties of Solutions 1. Definition a.

Solute­ substance in lesser quantity c. Solvent­ substance in higher quantity d. Aqueous Solution­ solution in which the solvent is water 3. When a Solute Dissolves a. There are attractive forces between solute particles holding  them together. There are also attractive forces between  solvents.  b. Once combined, forces form between the solute and  solvent. If this force is strong enough, the solute will  dissolve c. Factors affect solubility i. “Like dissolves like”­ There must be similar forces  in both the solute and the solvent for the substances  to be able to dissolve 4. General Properties of Liquid Solutions a. Clear, transparent, with no visible particles b. May have color c.

Suspended particles that are unevenly distributed in a  medium b. Particles are slightly larger so they can be seen when a light is shown through, but not to the naked eye i. If particles are smaller than 1 nm, it is a solution ii. If particles are between 1 nm and 1000 nm, it is a  colloid iii. If particles are larger than 1000 nm, it is a  precipitate 2. Tyndall Effect a. The ability of a colloidal suspension to scatter light v. Degree of Solubility 1.

Osmosis is defined as the passage of solvent from a  dilute solution to a more concentrated solution 1. Pressure is required to stop this flow iv. Is the solutions on both sides of the membrane are  the same, the solutions are known as isotonic e. Tonicity and the Cell i. Crenation 1. When a cell is placed in a solution that has a higher solute  concentration (hypertonic) than the cell itself, water will rush out  of the cell causing the cell to collapse. This is known as crenation 2. Pickling a cucumber uses this process ii. Hemolysis 1. When the cell is placed in a solution of lower concentration  (hypotonic) than the cell itself, water will rush into the cell causing it to burst/lyse iii. Isotonic 1. When the cell is place in a solution of its same concentration, there will be equal flow between sides and the cell is happy f. Aqueous Solutions i. Water is known as the “universal solvent” and is an excellent solvent for  polar molecules. Water is also the most abundant liquid on earth. (60% of  the human body is water) g. Biological Effects of Electrolytes in Solution i. Cations 1. Na  and K  are the two most important cations 2. They move across the cell membrane via active transport  3. If Na  is too high or too low, the body reacts  a. Low: Decreased urine output, dry mouth, flushed skin,  fever b. High: confusion, stupor, coma 4. If K  is too high or too low, it often results in death by heart failure ii. Anions ­ 1. Cl helps maintain acid/base balance, osmotic pressure, and  Oxygen transport by hemoglobin ­ 2. HCO  is3the form in which most CO2 exits the body iii. Proteins 1. Act as blood clotting factors, antibodies, and albumins 2. Transported as a colloidal suspension 3.
