Energy and Gases Kinetic energy: is the energy of motion. Potential Energy: energy of Position or stored energy Exothermic • energy is released by the substance into the surroundings • less PE, more KE, so temperature rises Endothermic • energy is absorbed by the substance from the surroundings • more PE, less KE, so temperature drops
Nature of Gases • Gases expand to fill the container that they are in • gas particles glide past one another- they are fluid • gases have low density • gases can be compressed or squeezed together • Diffusion: spontaneous mixing of two gaseous substances by their random motion. • Effusion: process by which gas particles pass through a tiny opening • Pressure: force per unit area (pressure = force/area) • units: Newtons (N), millimeters of mercury (mm Hg), torr, One atmosphere of pressure (atm), Pascal (Pa)
Gases • Kinetic-molecular theory: particles of matter are always in motion • Ideal gas: an imaginary gas that perfectly fits all the assumptions of the kinetic molecular theory Kinetic Model theory of gases: 1) gases are tiny particles that are far apart 2) Collisions between gases particles (and container walls) are elastic (i.e: no net lose of kinetic energy) 3) gas particles are in continuous, rapid, random motion 4) No forces of attraction or repulsion between particles 5) The average kinetic energy of gas particles depends on the temperature. KE = 1/2 mv2
Gas Laws Boyle’s Law: P1V1= P2V2 Charles’ Law: V1 = V2 T1 T2 Lussac’s Law: P1 = P2 T1 T2 Avogadro’s Law: V=kn Combined Gas Law: P1V1 = P2V2 T1 T2 Ideal Gas Law: PV = nRT Dalton’s Law of Partial Pressure: Ptotal= P1+ P2 + P3…. Graham’s Law: Rate gas 1 = √MM gas 2 Rate gas 2 = √MM gas 1
Proportionality • PV = nRT • Pressure and Volume: are inversely proportional because they are on the same side of the equation • Opposites: one goes up…the other goes down • P α 1/V • Temperature and Volume: are directly proportional because they are on opposite sides of the equation • Same: one goes up….the other also goes up • T α V
Variables in Equations PRESSURE (P): • Force per unit of area • Caused by collisions of gas molecules pushing on the walls of a container • Measured using a barometer • A device that allows atmospheric gases to push open mercury up through a graduated tube. • Units: “atm” (atmosphere) • Standard pressure is 1 atm • 1 atm = 760 mm Hg = 760 Torr = 101325 Pascals = 101.325 kPa = 14.7 psi = 29.92 in Hg
Variables in Equations VOLUME (V): • The amount of space taken up • Gases expand to fill the space of the container that they are in. • Units: “L” (Liters) • 1 L = 1000 mL • @ STP 22.4 L = 1 mol (of a gas) MOLES (n): • Units: “mol” (moles) • If given grams convert using molar mass
Variables in Equations TEMPERATURE (T): • Units: “K ” (Kelvin) • oC + 273 = K • Standard Temperature is 0 oC or 273K CONSTANT (R ): • This is not variable, but a constant • Depends on pressure units • R = 0.0821 (L * atm)/ (mol * K) • R = 8.314 (L * kPa) / (mol * K)
Ideal Gas Law • Assume that gases behave ideally • No attractive or repulsive forces between particles • Real gases behave most like ideal gases at high temperatures and low pressures • IDEAL GAS LAW PV = nRT • n = the number of moles, • R = 0.0821 (L*atm)/(mol* K) or 8.314 J/(mol* K) • n = m/ MM moles = mass / Molar Mass • D = m/V • So.... MM = DRT or MM = gRT P PV
Stoichiometry • Use the Ideal Gas Law to get the number of moles then use the balanced equation to go from moles X to moles Y. The use Molar Mass to get to grams! • The rates of effusion and diffusion depends on the relative velocities of gas molecules. The velocity of a gas varies inversely with the square root of the molar mass of the gas • The larger a molecule, the slower it moves. Graham’s Law
Dalton’s Law: • Partial Pressure: the pressure that an individual gas exerts in a mixture of gases • Ptotal = P1 + P2 + P3 ……Pn • You just add the individual pressures for the various gases.
