Chapter objectives
Chapter Objectives

  • Describe the physical properties of gases.

  • Use the ideal gas law for calculating changes in the conditions of gases.

  • Use the concept of partial pressure to work with mixtures of gases.

  • Perform stoichiometric calculations for reactions involving gases as reactants or products.


  • Pressure:

Gas pressure
Gas Pressure

  • Pressure is the result of molecular collisions between gas molecules and container walls.

  • A barometer is used to measure pressure.

Units of pressure and stp
Units of Pressure and STP

  • 1 torr = 1 mm Hg

  • 1 atm = 760 torr= 760 mm Hg (exactly)

  • 1 atm = 101,325 Pa (exactly)

  • 1 atm = 14.7 psi

  • At sea level, atmospheric pressure is?

  • Standard Temperature and Pressure Conditions (STP):

Empirical gas laws
Empirical Gas Laws

  • Gases behave simply under “moderate” conditions with respect to four things:

Boyle’s Law

PV = constant P1V1 = P2V2

For a given amount of gas at a constant temp.

Charles’s Law

V/T = constant V1 / T1=V2 / T2

For a given amount of gas at a given pressure

WARNING – Temperature must be absolute (Kelvin Units) for ALL gas laws.


  • A volume of oxygen gas occupies 38.7 mL at 751 mm Hg at 21°C. What is the volume if the pressure changes to 359 mm Hg and temp. remains constant?

  • You prepared carbon dioxide by adding HCl(aq) to marble chips (CaCO3). According to your calculations, you should obtain 79.4 mL of CO2 at 0°C and 760 mm Hg. How many milliliters of gas would you obtain at 27°C?

Combined gas law
Combined Gas Law

PV = constant P1V1 = P2V2

(for a given molar amount of gas)


Divers working from a North Sea oil drilling platform experience pressures of 5.0x101atm at a depth of 5.0x102m. If a balloon is inflated to a volume of 5.0L (the volume of a lung) at that depth at a water temperature of 4.0°C, what would the volume of the balloon be on the surface (1.0 atm pressure) at a temperature of 11°C?

Avogadro s law
Avogadro’s Law

  • Relates volume and molar amount.

  • One mole of any gas contains how many molecules?

  • At STP, Vm =

Ideal gas law
Ideal Gas Law

  • We can combine the empirical gas laws into one equation called the Ideal Gas Law

  • There must be a proportionality constant that governs relationships of Empirical Gas Laws = R

  • R is the universal gas law constant.

    • R = 0.0821 L atm/mol K

The ideal gas law
The Ideal Gas Law

  • The ideal gas law is the quantitative relationship between pressure, volume, moles gas present, and the absolute temperature.

  • Units are critical!

Ideal gas law examples and applications
Ideal Gas Law Examples and Applications

  • A 50.0-L cylinder of nitrogen, N2, has a pressure of 17.1 atm at 23°C. What is the mass of nitrogen in the cylinder?

  • What is the density of methane gas (natural gas), CH4, at 125°C and 3.50 atm?

Gas stoichiometry
Gas Stoichiometry


The following reaction can be used to produce pure oxygen gas:

2 H2O2 (l)  2 H2O (l) + O2 (g)

Suppose I used 0.01 moles of H2O2. How many liters of oxygen gas will I get at 298K and 1 atm?

Gas Stoichiometry


How many liters of chlorine gas, Cl2, can be obtained at 40°C and 787 mmHg from 9.41 grams of HCl according to the following reaction?

2 KMnO4 (s) + 16 HCl (l) 

8 H2O (l) + 2 KCl (aq) + 2 MnCl2 (aq) + 5 Cl2 (g)

Dalton s law of partial pressures1
Dalton’s Law of Partial Pressures

  • Partial pressure –

  • Dalton’s Law of Partial Pressures –

    PT = PA + PB + PC + …

Calculation of partial pressure of gas in a mixture
Calculation of Partial Pressure of Gas in a Mixture

A 100.0 mL sample of air exhaled from the lungs is analyzed and found to contain 0.0830 g N2, 0.0194 g O2, 0.00640 g CO2, and 0.0041 g water vapor at 35°C. What is the partial pressure of each component and the total pressure of the sample?
