10 1 kinetic molecular theory
10. 1 Kinetic Molecular Theory

State the kinetic-molecular theory of matter, and describe how it explains certain properties of matter.

List the five assumptions of the kinetic-molecular theory of gases.

Define the terms ideal gas and real gas.

Describe each of the following characteristic properties of gases: expansion, density, fluidity, compressibility, diffusion, and effusion.

Describe the conditions under which a real gas deviates from “ideal” behavior.

what is the kinetic molecular theory
What is the Kinetic Molecular Theory?
  • Break it down:
    • Kinetic: movement
    • Molecular: particles
    • Theory: tested ideas

Tested ideas about the

movement of particles!

This theory is used to explain the energy and forces that cause the properties of solids, liquids, and gases.

kmt of gases
KMT of Gases
  • Ideal gas: hypothetical gas that satisfies all 5 ideas of KMT
    • pressure is not too high
    • temperature is not too low
  • Gases consist of large numbers of tiny particles that are far apart relative to their size.
    • Most of the volume is empty space
  • Collisions between gas particles and between particles and container walls are elastic collisions.
    • elastic collisionwhen there is no net loss of total kinetic energy
kmt cont
KMT cont.
  • Gas particles are in continuous, rapid, random motion.
  • There are no forces of attraction between gas particles.
  • The temperature of a gas depends on the average kinetic energy of the particles of the gas.
    • The kinetic energy of any moving object is given by the following equation:
  • Because gases have motion, they can travel.
  • Effusion: process by which gas particles pass through a tiny opening

What determines have fast a gas effuses? Mass

  • Gases at the same temperature have the same KE so…
    • Heavier gases  travel slower
    • Lighter gases  travel faster
gas behavior
Gas Behavior

KMT applies only to ideal gasses.

Which parts are not true for real gases?

11 1 gases and pressures
11.1 Gases and Pressures
  • Definepressure, give units of pressure, and describe how pressure is measured.
  • State the standard conditions of temperature and pressure and convert units of pressure.
  • Use Dalton’s law of partial pressures to calculate partial pressures and total pressures.
4 variables of gases
4 Variables of Gases
  • Pressure (P) Volume (V)
  • Temperature (T) Mols (n)
  • What causes pressure?
  •  collisions of the gas molecules with each other and with surfaces with which they come into contact.
  •  depends on volume (mL or L), temperature (oF, oC, K), and the number of molecules present (mol, mmol).
equation for pressure
Equation for Pressure

Pressure (P): the force per unit area on a surface.

Pressure = Force


 More force on a given area, the greater the pressure.

 smaller the area is on which a given force acts, the greater the pressure.


Measuring Pressure

  • barometer: device used to measure atmospheric pressure
  • Pressure of atmosphere supports a column of Hg about 760 mm above surface of mercury in dish
  • Can change depending on weather & elevation
units for measuring pressure
Units for Measuring Pressure
  • mm Hg : millimeters of mercury
    • A pressure of 1 mm Hg is also called 1 torr in honor of Torricelli for his invention of the barometer.
  • atm : atmosphere of pressure
  • kPa : kiloPascal
  • Others…
    • psi : pounds per square inch
    • Bar
    • torr

1 atm = 101.3 kPa = 760 mmHg = 760 torr

pressure conversions
Pressure Conversions

The average atmospheric pressure in Denver, Colorado is 0.830 atm. Express this pressure in:

a. millimeters of mercury (mm Hg) and

b. kilopascals (kPa)

Given:atmospheric pressure = 0.830 atm

Unknown: a. pressure in mm Hg

b. pressure in kPa

  • STP : Standard Temperature & Pressure
    • 1.0 atm (or any of units of equal value)
    • 0 oC
  • Used by scientists to compare volumes of gases
dalton s law of partial pressures
Dalton’s Law of Partial Pressures
  • The pressure of each gas in a mixture is called the partial pressure.
  • John Dalton discovered that the pressure exerted by each gas in a mixture is independent of that exerted by other gases present.
  • Dalton’s law of partial pressures: the total pressure of a gas mixture is the sum of the partial pressures of each gas.
dalton s law of partial pressures1
Dalton’s Law of Partial Pressures
  • Dalton derived the following equation:

PT = P1 + P2 + P3 + …

Total Pressure = sum of pressures of each individual gas

gases collected by water displacement
Gases Collected by Water Displacement
  • Water molecules at the liquid surface evaporate and mix with the gas molecules. Water vapor, like other gases, exerts a pressure known as vapor pressure.
  • Gases produced in the laboratory are often collected over water. The gas produced by the reaction displaces the water in the reaction bottle.
gases collected by water displacement ctd
Gases Collected by Water Displacement (ctd)
  • Step 1: Raise bottle until water level inside matches the water level outside. (Ptot = Patm)
  • Step 2: Dalton’s Law of Partial Pressures states:

Patm = Pgas + PH2O

To get Patm, record atmospheric pressure.

  • Step 3: look up the value of PH2Oat the temperature of the experiment in a table, you can then calculate Pgas.
dalton s law of partial pressures sample problem
Dalton’s Law of Partial Pressures Sample Problem

KClO3decomposes and the oxygen gas was collected by water displacement. The barometric pressure and the temperature during the experiment were 731.0 torr and 20.0°C. respectively. What was the partial pressure of the oxygen collected?


PT = Patm= 731.0 torr

PH2O = 17.5 torr(vapor pressure of water at 20.0°C, from table A-8 in your book)

Patm = PO2+ PH2O

Unknown:PO2in torr

dalton s law sample problem solution
Dalton’s Law Sample Problem Solution
  • Solution:

Patm = PO2+ PH2O

PO2 = Patm- PH2O

  • substitute the given values of Patm and into the equation: PO2 =731.0 torr – 17.5 torr = 713.5 torr
