## Chapter 20The kinetic Theory of Gases

The mole is one of the seven SI base units and is defined as follows:

One mole is the number of atoms in a 12 g sample of carbon – 12.

The number of moles n is

At low enough densities,all real gases tend to obey the relation

The gas constant R

The Boltzmann constant k

## 20-3 Ideal Gases

On a p-v diagram,an isotherm is a curve that connects point that have the same temperature.

## Work Done by an Ideal Gas at Constant Temperature

If the volume of the gas is constant

If the pressure of the gas is constant

## Work Done at Constant Volume and at Constant Pressure

Sample Problem 20-1

Sample Problem 20-2

The only change in the particle’s momentum is along the x axis:

The average rate at which momentum is delivered to the shaded wall by this single molecule is

The pressure is

Its average translational kinetic energy over the time that we watch it is

## Sample Problem 20-3

20-5 Translational Kinetic Energy

Something unexpected:

At a given temperature T, all ideal gas molecules – no matter what their mass – have the same average translational kinetic energy ,namely , kT .When we measure the temperature of a gas ,we are also measuring the average translational kinetic energy of its molecules.

## Sample Problem 20-4

Maxwell’s speed distribution law is

The value of this total area is unity

The fraction (frac) of molecules with speed in an interval of,say, v1to v2is:

The average speed is:

The average of the square of the speed is

The root – mean – square speed is :

Internal Energy Eint

The internal energy Eint of the sample is

The internal energy Eint of an ideal gas is a function of the gas temperature only;it does not depend on any other variable.

## 20-8 The Molar Specific Heats of an Ideal Gas

The heat Q is related to the temperature change by

## Molar Specific Heat at Constant Volume

The internal energy of any ideal gas by substituting Cv for

A change in the internal energy Eint of a confined ideal gas depends on the change in the gas temperature only;it does not depend on what type of process process the change in the temperature.

## Sample Problem 20-7

The equipartition of energy

Every kind of molecule has a certain number f of degrees of freedom, which are independent ways in which the molecule can store energy.Each such degree of freedom has associated with it—on average —an energy of per molecule (or per mole) .

## Sample Problem 20-8

20-10 A Hint of Quantum Theory

The relation between the pressure and the volume during such an adiabatic process is

the ratio of the molar specific heats for

## 20-11 The Adiabatic Expansion of an Ideal Gas

Proof of Eq. 20-53

The first law of thermodynamics can then be written as

From the ideal gas law,we have
