Gases Properties, Measuring, Calculations, The Gas Laws
Characteristics of Gases • Gases are fluids • “Any substance that can flow” • Gases have a MUCH lower densities than liquids and solids • Enables them to “float” away • Gas particles are much farther apart
Review • What was density again? • If gases are much less dense, do you think they will frequently run into each other or seldom come into contact?
Gases are highly compressable • Gas particles can be smooshed together compressed • Think of a syringe or a soda bottle • Gases fill the container completely, spread out. • Collisions of gas molecules are what causes pressure. The more collisions, the higher the pressure • Gas molecules in the atm collide with Earth’s surface, creating atmospheric pressure.
Pressure • Pressure is “force divided by area” • You need to know the force and area over which the force is being exerted. • SI units for force is the newton, N • One newton is the force that gives an acceleration of 1 m/s2 to an object whose mass is 1 kg. • The SI unit of pressure is the pascal, Pa • The force one newton over an area of one square meter.
Table 1, Pressure Units One mmHg is also equal to 1 torr 1 atm = 760 torr= 760 mmHg
Standard Temperature and Pressure • Standard Temperature and Pressure, STP • 273.15 K (0ºC), 1 atm • Makes it easier to work with gases when they are at constant temperatures and pressure.
Kinetic-Molecular Theory • The KMT – a model that is used to predict gas behavior. • States that gas molecules are in constant rapid, random motion. • Spaces between are VERY large compared to the sizes of the gas particles • Explains the fluidity and compressibility
Measureable properties • Pressure = P = pressure exerted by the gas • Temperature = T = temperature in Kelvins of the gas • Volume = V = total volume occupied by the gas • Number of moles = n = number of moles of gas
Number of moles • We know how to calculate this when given the mass and the identity of the compound • Converting using the molar mass (mol/g) • No different for gases • How about if we are given the concentration? • Molarity is a measurement of “how much is in solution” • Solute = what is being dissolved • Solvent = what is doing the dissolving • Solution = the entire mixture, both solute and solvent Molarity (M) = mol solute / L solution
Practice with Molarity • We can determine the number of moles using the concentration and volume, then stick it into one of the following gas laws. Keep this in mind • Practice: How many moles are in 10 mL of a 3 M HClsoln? • What is the concentration of 25 mL of H2SO4 when 0.089 moles were added?
Boyle’s Law • Robert Boyle found that as pressure of a gas increases in a closed container, the volume of the gas decreases. • The product of the pressure and volume (PV) remain constant as long as temperature remains the same. • The inverse relationship between pressure and volume became known as Boyle’s Law PV (at any point) = k, so: P1V1 = P2V2
Practice with Boyle’s LAw • A sample of oxygen gas has a volume of 5.8 mL at a pressure of 0.947 atm. What will the volume of the gas be at a pressure of 1.000 atm if the temperature remains constant? • A sample of gas in a syringe has a volume of 9.66 mL at a pressure of 64.4 kPa. The plunger is depressed until the pressure is 94.6 kPa. What is the new volume, assuming constant temp.?
Charles’s Law • Heating a gas makes it expand, cooling it makes it contract • We can relate these two if the pressure remains constant • This direct relationship between temperature and volume is known as Charles’s Law V/T (at any point) = k, so: (V1/T1) = (V2/T2)
Practice with Charles’s Law • A balloon is inflated to 665 mL volume at 27ºC. It is immersed in a dry-ice bath at -78.5ºC. What is its volume, assuming the pressure remains constant?
Gay-Lussac’s Law • Temperature-Pressure Relationships • As you increase the pressure, the temperature increases. As the pressure decreases, the temperature decreases. • This direct relationship between temperature and pressure is known as Gay-Lussac’s Law. **Pressure of a gas is proportional to its absolute temp** P/T = k (at any point), so: (P1/T1) = (P2/T2)
Practice with Temperature-Pressure Relationships • An aerosol can containing gas at 101 kPa and 22ºC is heated to 55ºC. Calculate the pressure of the heated can.
The Combined Gas LAw • We can set these equations equal to a common variable and then set them equal to one another • By doing this, we can derive a COMBINED GAS LAW P1V1 = P2V2 T1 T2 • This equation enables us to make calculations consisting of varying pressures, temperatures, and volume (holding nothing but the number of moles constant).
Practice with the Combined • A soda bottle has a volume of 1.50 L at 25ºC at standard pressure (1.00 atm). The bottle is then taken to the bottom of the ocean to a temp of 1.00ºC and a pressure of 0.67 atm. What will the new volume of this bottle be?
Volume-molar relationships • Avogadro!! • States at the same temperature and pressure, balloons of the same volume with contain the SAME number of moles of gas, REGARDLESS of the gasses identity. • H2, O2, CO2, it does not matter!! • 1 mole of gas = 22.41 L. The mass of a gas at 0ºC and 1 atm (STP) is equal to the gas’s molecular (molar) mass V = kn, where k is the proportionality constant
Problems with these • No gas perfectly obeys all four of these laws under all conditions • These assumptions work well for most gases and most conditions • One way to model a gas’s behavior is to assume that the gas is an ideal gas that perfectly follows these laws • Does not condense to a liquid at low temps • Does not have forces or attraction or repulsion between the particles • And is composed of particles that have no volume
The ideal gas law P V = n R T P = Pressure V = Volume n = number of moles of gas R = Universal gas constant 8.314 L*kPa*mol-1*K-1 or 0.0821 L*atm*mol-1*K-1 T = Temperature of gas
Practice with theIdeal Gas Law • How many moles of gas are in 22.41 Liters at 101.325 kPa and 0ºC?
Deviations from the Ideal Gas Law • A real gas deviates from the ideal gas behavior at low temperature and high pressure • The volume of the particles themselves is close to the total volume, so the actual volume will be higher than calculated. • So, with regards to the Ideal Gas Law, low temperature and high pressure is BAD!! • Condensation and particle attractions as they get closer Remember This!!!
Diffusion and Effusion • Diffusion – the movement of particles from regions of higher density to regions of lower density. • Odor of ammonia smelling up the room • Involves an increase in entropy (measure of randomness) • Effusion – the passage of a gas under pressure through a tiny opening • Like out of a leaking tire
Gay-Lussac’s Law of Combining Volumes • This law states that the volumes of gases involved in a chemical change can be represented by the ratio of small whole numbers ___ H + ___ Cl ___ HCl • This tells us our 7 diatomics ARE, in fact, diatomic
Dalton’s Law of Partial Pressures • Dalton showed that in a mixture of gases, each gas exerts a certain pressure as if it were alone with no other gases mixed with it • The pressure of each gas in a mixture is call the Partial Pressure • This is known as Dalton’s Law of Partial Pressures Total pressure = sum of the pressures of all the components within it Ptotal = PA + PB + PC + … + Pn
