## Gas Laws

• Boyle's Law

• Dalton's Law

• Henry's Law

• Charles' Law

### Boyle’s Law

“At a constant temperature, the volume of a given mass of gas varies inversely with the absolute pressure”

### Dalton's Law

“In a mixture of gases, each constituent gas exerts a Partial Pressure in proportion to its percentage of the mixture”

### Dalton's Law(Example)

• Pure air at 1 bar pressure

• Air consists 79% nitrogen and 21% oxygen

• Partial pressure of nitrogen = 0.79 bar (ppN2 = 0.79 bar)

• Partial pressure of oxygen= 0.21 bar (ppO2 = 0.21 bar)

### Henry's Law

"The amount of gas that dissolves in a liquid is proportional to the partial pressure of the gas in contact with the liquid"

(Providing temperature is constant)

### Charles' Law

"At constant pressure the volume of a gas varies directly with the absolute temperature"

or

"At constant volume the pressure of a gas varies directly with the absolute temperature"

### Charles' Law(Example)

• Cylinder pressure = 232 Bar (P1)

• Original temperature = (20°C) 293 K (T1)

• Temperature increase to (70°C) 343 K (T2)

P1

P2

=

T1

T2

P2 = P1 x T2

T1

P2 = 232 x (273 + 70)

(273 + 20)

### Charles' Law(Example)

• If

• New pressure in cylinder = 271 Bar

= 271 Bar

### Gas Laws Summary

• Boyle's Law

• Relates pressure and volume

• Dalton's Law

• Defines partial pressure exerted by individual gases in a mixture of gases

• Henry's Law

• Defines the solubility of gases in a liquid

• Charles' Law

• Relates change in pressure and volume of gases to changes in temperature
