# Chapter 5: Gases Chemistry 1411 Joanna Sabey Substances Chapter 5: Gases Chemistry 1411 Joanna Sabey Substances as Gases Properties of Gases Variable shape and volume: A gas has the same shape and volume as the container it is in. Expand uniformly: When a container increases its volume, a gas expands and the gas molecules distribute uniformly throughout the container.

Compress uniformly: When a container decreases in volume, a gas expands and the molecules are closer to each other. Have low density: The density of air is about 0.001g/mL, the density of water is 1 g/mL. Mix uniformly with other gases in the same container. Atmospheric Pressure Gas Pressure: the result of constantly moving molecules striking the inside surface of their container. If the molecules collide more often, the gas pressure increases.

If the molecules collide with more energy the pressure increases. Atmospheric pressure: the result of air molecules in the environment. Standard atmospheric pressure is 1 atmosphere, atm. Unit Standard pressure Atmosphere 1 atm (exactly) Inches of mercury 29.9 in Hg

Centimeters of mercury 76 cm Hg(exactly) Millimeters of mercury 760 mm Hg(exactly) Torr 760 torr(exactly) Pounds per square inch 14.7 psi Kilopascal 101 kPa

Gas Pressure Conversions Given the pressure inside a car tire is 34.0 psi, express the pressure in each of the following: Atm: For every 14.7 psi there is 1 atm 34.0 psi X (1 atm/14.7 psi) = 2.31 atm Cm Hg: For every 76 cm Hg, there is 14.7 psi 34.0 psi X (76 cm Hg/14.7 psi) = 176 cm Hg Torr: For every 14.7 psi, there are 760 torr. 34.0 psi X(760 torr / 14.7 psi) = 1758 torr kPa: For every 14.7 psi there are 101 kPa.

34.0 psi X (101 kPa / 14.7 psi) = 234 kPa Variable Affecting Gas Pressure Increase or decrease the volume of the container: increase in volume, will decrease pressure and a decrease in volume will increase the pressure on the gas. Increase or decrease the temperature of the gas: Increase in the temperature, will increase the

pressure and a decrease in temperature will decrease pressure. Increase or decrease in the number of molecules: Increase in number of molecules will increase the pressure and a decrease in the number of molecules will decrease pressure. Variable Affecting Gas Pressure Boyles Law Boyles Law: The volume of a gas is inversely proportional to the pressure when the temperature remains constant. P a 1/V

Avogadros Law Avogadros Law: At constant temperature and pressure, the volume of gas is directly proportional to the number of moles of the gas present. V a number of moles (n) V1 / n1 = V2 / n2 Ideal Gas Law Kinetic Theory of an ideal gas: Gases are made up of tiny molecules: gas molecules are relatively small and the distance between them is quite large. Gas molecules demonstrate rapid motion, move in straight lines, and travel in random directions. Gas molecules have no attraction for one another: when they collide they simply bounce off of one another.

Gas molecules collide without losing energy: they are said to have elastic collisions. The average kinetic energy of gas molecules is proportional to the Kelvin temperature, KE = T at the same temperature, all gas molecules have equal kinetic energy.
