Gas Pressure

  • Units of pressure: atmosphere (atm)

    • mm Hg (760 mm Hg = 1 atm)

    • Pressure is force exerted per

    • unit area

    • Pa (kg/ms2, 101,325 Pa = 1 atm)

  • The Volume–Amount Law (Avogadro’s Law):

    V  n


The ideal gas law l.jpg

The Ideal Gas Law

  • Ideal gases obey an equation incorporating the laws of Charles, Boyle, and Avogadro.

    P V = n R T

    Where R is the combined proportionality constant.

    The gas constant, R = 0.08206 L·atm·K–1·mol–1


Ideal gas law l.jpg

Ideal Gas Law

  • What volume does 1 mole of methane gas (CH4) occupy at standard temperature and pressure (1.00 atm and 273.15 K)?

  • What volume does 1 mole of carbon dioxide gas occupy under the same conditions?

  • What is the volume occupied by 7.40 g of CO2 at STP?


Ideal gas law13 l.jpg

Ideal Gas Law

  • Oxygen gas is normally sold in 49.0 L steel containers at a pressure of 150.0 atm. How many moles (n) of oxygen does one container hold at 20oC?

  • What volume would the gas occupy if the pressure was reduced to 1.02 atm and the temperature raised from 20oC to 35oC?


Ideal gas law14 l.jpg

Ideal Gas Law

  • An inflated balloon with a volume of 0.55 L at sea level, where the pressure is 1.0 atm, is allowed to rise to a height of 6.5 km, where the pressure is about 0.40 atm. Assuming that the temperature remains constant, what is the final volume of the balloon?


The ideal gas law15 l.jpg

The Ideal Gas Law

  • Sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) is a colorless, odorless, very unreactive gas. Calculate the pressure (in atm) exerted by 1.82 moles of the gas in a steel vessel of volume 5.43 L at 69.5°C.

Dalton s law of partial pressures17 l.jpg

Dalton’s Law of Partial Pressures

  • The Partial Pressure (Px) of gas X in a mixture of gases is the pressure that gas X would exert if it alone occupied the container.

  • When calculating partial pressure, use the ideal gas law and ignore other gases in the container.


Dalton s law of partial pressures18 l.jpg

Dalton’s Law of Partial Pressures

  • In a mixture of gases the total pressure, Ptot, is the sum of the partial pressures, Px, of the gases:

  • Dalton’s law allows us to work with mixtures of gases.
