- At constant pressure, the volume of a gas is directly proportional to its temperature in Kelvins
V1 = V2

T1 T2

As the temperature goes up, the volume goes up

- At constant temperature, the volume of a gas is inversely proportional to the pressure.
P1V1 = P2V2

As the pressure goes up, the volume goes down

P1V1 = P2V2

- Standard Pressure (P) = 101.32 kPa, 1 atm, or 760 mm Hg
- Standard Temperature (T) is 273 K

Dr. May

Molecules of an ideal gas

- Are dimensionless points
- Are in constant, straight-line motion
- Have kinetic energy proportional to their absolute temperature
- Have elastic collisions
- Exert no attractive or repulsive forces on each other

What is the mass of nitrogen in a 2.3 liter container at 1.2 atmospheres, and 25 oC ?

- V = 2.3 liters
- P = 1.2 atmospheres
- T = 25 oC = 298 Kelvins
- R = 0.0821 since P is in atms.
- Find moles (n), then grams

PV = nRT

1.2 (2.3) = n (0.0821) (298)

n = 1.2 ( 2.3) = 0.11 moles

(0.0821) (298)

Grams = moles x molecular weight (MW)

- Moles = 0.11
- Molecular Weight of N2 = 28 g/mole
- Grams = 0.11 x 28 = 3.1 grams

What is the mass of nitrogen in a 2.3 liter container at 1.2 atmospheres, and 25 oC ?

The answer is 0.11 moles and

3.1 grams
