The Properties of Gases

Part I

- Gases expand to fill the container.
- Gases take on the shape of the container.
- Gases are highly compressible. (Can be liquefied at high pressures).
- Gases have low densities.
- Gases mix uniformly.

The kinetic molecular theory describes the behavior of ideal gases.

An ideal gas is one that conforms to the KMT.

Temperature is proportional to the average kinetic energy of the molecules. KE = ½ mv2

KE = ½ mass times speed squared

The speed is proportional to the absolute temperature (Kelvin).

Molecules are far apart from each other. This accounts for the low density and high compressibility.

The volume of the individual molecules is negligible compared to the volume of the gas.

There are no attractive or repulsive forces between gas molecules.

Adjacent molecules do not attract or repel each other.

When gas molecules collide with each other they may speed up or slow down, BUT …

The net (total) energy of the gas molecules does not change.

- Gases in constant motion, speed depends on temperature.
- Molecules have negligible volume.
- No intermolecular forces.
- Elastic collisions. No change in energy.

When doing calculations, temperature must always be in an absolute temperature scale …

… where the lowest possible temperature is zero degrees.

Use Kelvin degrees!

Also known as the

law of combining volumes.

At a given temperature and pressure, the volumes of reacting gases are in a ratio of small, whole numbers.

Year: 1802

Gay-Lussac found that the volumes of gases in a reaction were in ratios of small, whole numbers.

The ideal gas equation relates pressure, volume, temperature and the number of moles of a quantity of gas.

PV = nRT

Use the ideal gas equation whenever the problem gives you mass or moles, or asks for a mass or a number of moles.

The answer is

2.46 g SO3

Start with the ideal gas equation:

PV = nRT

Suppose the volume, pressure and temperature change to give a new pressure, volume and temperature.

P1V1 = nRT1

P2V2 = nRT2

and

Now, solve for what doesn’t change, the constants n and R:

P1V1 = nRT1

P2V2 = nRT2

(a) at STP

(b) at a pressure of 695 torr and a temperature of 40.0 C.

The answers are

1.25 g/L,

and 0.996 g/L.

2. Determine the molar mass of a gas which has a density of 8.53 g/L at a pressure of 2.50 atm and a temperature of 500.0 K?

140. g/mol

The answer is

Many gases are soluble in water. Were it not for the solubility of oxygen, fish would have wear scuba tanks.

Besides the characteristics of the gas itself, what are the two external factors which affect the solubility of a gas?

Two factors affect the solubility of a gas:

The temperature of the solution.

The pressure of the gas above the solution. See “Henry’s Law”.

The temperature of the solution.

Why is the champagne chilled?

More CO2 is released from the champagne as its temperature rises.

The solubility of gases decreases with increasing temperature.

Thermal pollution

This 1988 thermal image of the Hudson River highlights temperature changes caused by discharge of 2.5 billion gallons of water each day from the Indian Point power plant. The plant sits in the upper right of the photo — hot water in the discharge canal is visible in yellow and red, spreading and cooling across the entire width of the river. Two additional outflows from the Lovett coal-fired power plant are also clearly visible against the natural temperature of the water, in green and blue.

Thermal pollution

The result is a decrease in dissolved oxygen which is needed by the plants and animals living in the heated water.

Why do we find trout in cold mountain streams, often near riffles and waterfalls?

High dissolved oxygen.

The second factor is the pressure of the dissolved gas above the solution.

CO2 is dissolved in a can of Pepsi. Above the liquid in the can is CO2 gas. The high pressure of the CO2 in the can keeps the can rigid and the CO2 in solution.

Henry’s Law:

At a constant temperature, the amount of a given gas dissolved in a solution is directly proportional to the partial pressure of that gas in equilibrium with the solution.

p = kHc

Henry’s Law:

Where p is the partial pressure of the gas, kH is the Henry’s law constant, and c is the concentration of the gas in moles per liter.

- Some Henry’s law constants at 298K
- O2 769.2 Latm/mol
