## Molecular Composition of Gases

Chapter 14

(page 440)

### Essential Question!!

Why is it important to know the volume - mass relationship of gases, the Idea Gas law, and the stoichiometry of gases??

### Vocabulary: Section 1

• Kinetic molecular theory

• Brownian motion

• Pressure

• Pascal

• Barometer

• Diffusion

• Boltzmann’s constant

Properties of gases

No interaction between atoms or molecules, except during collisions

Straight trajectory until a collision occurs

Mostly empty space

Gases consist of widely separated atoms or molecules in constant, random motion

Properties of gases

• Gases have a unique set of physical properties:

• Gases are translucent or transparent.

• Gases have very low densities when compared to liquids or solids.

• Gases are highly compressible compared to liquids and solids.

• Gases can expand or contract to fill any container.

Mostly empty space

These can be explained by the kinetic molecular theory

Gases consist of atoms or molecules with a lot of space in between,

that are in constant, random motion

kinetic molecular theory:the theory that explains the observed thermal and physical properties of matter in terms of the average behavior of a collection of atoms and molecules.

Properties of gases

Evidence for the atomic / molecular nature of matter:

If the liquid and gas are both made from the same molecules (H2O), you can explain the “disappearance” by assuming that the molecules are much more spread out in the gas phase.

Brownian motion

Brownian motion can be seen by magnifying diluted milk and observing tiny fat globules getting knocked around by the surrounding water molecules

• What Brownian motion tells us:

• Matter consists of discrete particles (molecules or atoms)

• Molecules (or atoms) are in constant, vigorous motion as a result of temperature

Brownian motion

Brownian motion provides a peek into the microscopic world of atoms to see details that are normally hidden by the law of averages, and the enormous number of incredibly small atoms.

• In the early 1800’s Joseph Gay-Lussac studied gas volume relationships involving a chemical reaction between hydrogen and oxygen and observed that 2 L of hydrogen would react with 1 L of oxygen to form 2 L of water vapor at constant temperature and pressure

• Hydrogen gas + oxygen gas ---- water vapor

2 L 1 L ---- 2 L

2 volumes 1 volume ---- 2 volumes

### Assignment

Take a new sheet of paper and fold it into three sections

Write your name, the title of the chapter and the number

On the first section from the sheet of paper, please write six things that you learned from your notes so far that could appear on your test.

• In Gay-Lussac experiment it was found that the reaction took place in a 2:1:2 relationship between hydrogen, oxygen and water vapor

• If you had 600 L H2, 300 L O2you would get 600 L H2O formed

• With hydrogen and chlorine combining then:

• Hydrogen gas + chlorine gas ---- hydrogen chloride gas

1 L 1 L ---- 2 L

1 volumes 1 volume ---- 2 volumes

• The relationship that he found between gas volumes is now known to be a law

• Gay-Lussac’s law of combining volumes of gases states – at constant temperature and pressure, the volumes of gaseous reactants and products can be expressed as ratios of small whole numbers

• Remember from Dalton’s atomic theory that atoms are indivisible

• Also remember that Dalton believed that one atom of one reactant always combined with one atom of the other reactant (which caused questions when forming water vapor)

• Gay-Lussac disproved the second theory of Dalton, but a scientist by the name of Avogadro formulated an explanation of the problem

• Avogadro reasoned that molecules contained more than one atom and formulated his theory which later became a law

• Avogadro’s law: equal volumes of gases at the same temperature and pressure contain equal numbers of molecules

• Remember that one mole is equal to the atomic mass of that atom

• Well, one mole of a molecule or a compound is equal to the combined molecular masses of the atoms

• Avogadro suggested that one mole of an element, molecule or an compound contained the same number of particles which is 6.022 x 1023 particles

• So 1 mole of H2 (2.015g) contained the same number of particles as 1 mole O2 (32g) at standard pressure (1 atm) and temperature (273 K) STP

• Standard volume at STP is 22.414 L

### Assignment

### Vocabulary: Section 2

• Molar Volume

• Ideal gas

Mostly empty space

No interaction between gas atoms or molecules except in collisions

Straight trajectories until collision occurs

Gases consist of widely separated atoms or molecules in constant, random motion

Gas pressure is increased by

more frequent and/or harder collisions

You can affect the gas pressure by changing:

1. the density

More molecules means more impacts and a higher pressure.

2. the volume of the container

With less space to move around, there are more collisions and a higher pressure.

You can affect the gas pressure by changing:

1. the density

More molecules means more impacts and a higher pressure.

2. the volume of the container

With less space to move around, there are more collisions and a higher pressure.

3. the temperature

With more kinetic energy, the molecules move faster. The collisions are harder and more frequent.

Boyle’s law: V versus P

Robert Boyle’s experiment:

• Mercury (Hg) was poured down a tube shaped like the letter “J.”

• - The tube was closed on the lower end.

• The gas inside the tube took up space (volume).

• The temperature and number of gas molecules inside the tube stayed constant.

• - Boyle observed the change in pressure in mmHg as a function of volume. He then graphed the relationship between pressure and volume.

The ideal gas law

Combining the previous gas laws, we obtain the ideal gas law

In reality, the ideal gas law is an approximation which is accurate for many gases over a wide range of conditions.

The ideal gas law is not accurate at very high density or at very low temperature.

The ideal gas law

Limitations of the ideal gas law

In an ideal gas, we assume that:

1. individual gas molecules take up no space

2. gas molecules do not interact with each other

For very small volumes or very low temperatures, gas atoms and molecules are very close together, and van der Waals attractions are no longer negligible
