Gases and gas pressure
Gases and Gas Pressure

  • Gases– constituent atoms and molecules that have little attraction for one another

    • Free to move in available volume

  • Some properties of gases

    • Mixtures are always homogenous

      • Very weak attraction between gas molecules

      • Identity of neighbor is irrelevant

    • Compressible – volume contracts when pressure is applied

      • 0.10% of volume of gas is occupied by molecules

      • Exert a measurable pressure on the walls of their container

Gases and gas pressure1

Pressure – force exerted per unit area

SI unit equals Pascal (Pa)

1 Pa = 1 N/m2 (1 N = 1 (kg•m)/s2)

Alternative units

Millimeters of mercury (mmHg)

Atmosphere (atm)

1.0 atm = 760 mmHg = 101, 325 Pa

1.0 atm = 760 torr


Unit area

Gases and Gas Pressure


Atmospheric pressure
Atmospheric Pressure

  • - pressure created from the mass of the atmosphere pressing down on the earth’s surface

    • Standard atmospheric pressure at sea level – 760 mmHg

Gases and gas pressure2
Gases and Gas Pressure

  • Barometer:

    • long thin mercury filled tube sealed at once end and inverted into a dish of mercury

    • Downward pressure of Hg in column equals outside atmospheric pressure

Measuring pressure
Measuring Pressure

  • Manometer:

    • U-tube filled with mercury, with one end connected to the gas – filled container and the other end open to the atmosphere.

    • Pgas < Patm; liquid level in the arm connected to the gas-filled cylinder will be higher

    • Pgas + PHg = Patm

Measuring pressure1
Measuring Pressure

  • Pgas > Patm; liquid level in the arm connected to the gas – filled cylinder will be lower

  • Pgas = Patm + PHg

    • (PHg = the difference in the heights of the two mercury columns)


  • What is the pressure of the gas inside the following apparatus (in mm Hg) if the outside pressure is 750 mm Hg? (1 cm Hg = 10 mm Hg)
