Chapter 5 Gases Chem 1A van Koppen Consider the three physical states of substances solid liquid and gas Gases occupy the full volume of their containers Gases are generally highly compressible When a gas is subjected to pressure its volume decreases Gases form homogeneous mixtures with other gases Chemical properties vary significantly for gases Physical properties are simpler to understand The most useful physical properties for describing gases are volume V pressure P and temperature T By studying these properties we can understand the behavior of gases Pressure is the force acting on an object per unit area P FA Gravity exerts a force on the earth39s atmosphere Atmospheric pressure is measured using a barometer If a tube completely filled with mercury Hg is inverted into a dish of mercury mercury will flow out of the tube until the pressure of the column of mercury equals the pressure of the atmosphere on the surface of the mercury in the dish The height of the mercury in the tube is 760 mm for 1 atm of pressure Units 1 atm 760 mm Hg 760 torr 1469 Dsi 1013251 x 105 Pa atm standard atmosphere psi pounds per square inch Pa pascal 1 kg m391 sec392 Gas Laws Boyle39s Law V on 1P fixed temperature and fixed amount of gas The volume of a fixed quantity of gas at a fixed temperature is inversely proportional to pressure that is an decrease in pressure causes the volume to increase Charles39 Law V on T fixed pressure and fixed amount of gas The volume of a fixed quantity of gas at constant pressure increases as the temperature increases A plot of V versus T is a straight line and the intercept of this plot when T is measured in C is 7 27315 C The absolute zero of temperature is defined as 0 K 7 27315 C Tin Kelvin Tin C 27315 Avogadro39s Law V on 11 fixed pressure and fixed temperature For a gas at constant temperature and pressure the volume is directly proportional to the number of moles of gas 11 Ideal Gas Law PV nRT Where T is the absolute in Kelvin K The ideal gas law holds for gases at P S 1 atm and is more accurate as pressure decreases the gas must be far from its liquification point Real gases behave quotideallyquot at low pressure R

Why people love StudySoup

Jim McGreen Ohio University

"Knowing I can count on the Elite Notetaker in my class allows me to focus on what the professor is saying instead of just scribbling notes the whole time and falling behind."

Jennifer McGill UCSF Med School

"Selling my MCAT study guides and notes has been a great source of side revenue while I'm in school. Some months I'm making over $500! Plus, it makes me happy knowing that I'm helping future med students with their MCAT."

Bentley McCaw University of Florida

"I was shooting for a perfect 4.0 GPA this semester. Having StudySoup as a study aid was critical to helping me achieve my goal...and I nailed it!"

Parker Thompson 500 Startups

"It's a great way for students to improve their educational experience and it seemed like a product that everybody wants, so all the people participating are winning."
