Properties of Gases. Gases may be compressed. Gases expand to fill their containers uniformly. All gases have low density. Gases may be mixed. A confined gas exerts constant pressure on the walls of its container uniformly in all directions. Fig. 4-2, p. 97. K inetic M olecular T heory.

1 atm = 760 mmHg = 760 torr = 14.69 psi
Boyle’s Law P1V1 = P2V2
Charles’ Law V1 / T1 = V2 / T2
Combined Gas Law P1V1 / T1 = P2 V2 / T2
Boyle’s Law: For a fixed quantity of gas at constant temperature, pressure is inversely proportional to volume.

Charles’s Law: The volume of a fixed quantity of gas at constant pressure is directly proportional to absolute temperature.

1. At 25oC, a sample of N2 gas under a pressure of 689 mmHg occupies 124 mL in a piston-cylinder arrangement before compression. If the gas is compressed to 75% of its original volume, what must be the new pressure (in atm) at 25oC?
First make a list of the measurements made:
P1=689 mmHg V1 = 124 mL
P2 = ? V2 = 75% V1
From the variables, choose the appropriate equation, in this case Boyle’s Law: P1V1=P2V2
(689 mmHg) (124 mL) = P2 (0.75 x 124 mL)
Solve for P2:
P2 = (689mmHg) (124 mL) / (93 mL) = 919 mmHg
Now convert to atm:
919 mmHg (1 atm / 760 mmHg) = 1.21 atm
2. The gas in a Helium filled ball at 25oC exerts a volume of 4.2 L. If the ball is placed in a freezer and the volume decreases to 1/8 of its original value, what is the temperature inside the ball?
First make a list of the measurements made:
V1=4.2 atm T1 = 25 oC + 273.15 = 298.15
V2 = 1/8 P1 T2 = ?
From the variables, choose the appropriate equation, in this case Charles’ Law: V1/T1=V2/T2
(V1) / (298 K) = (1/8 V1) / T2
Solve for T2:
T2 = [(298 K) (1/8 V1)] / (V1) = 298 / 8 = 37.3 K or -235 oC
P1V1 / T1 = P2V2 / T2
rearranged to solve for V2 is:
V2 = P1 V1 T2 / P2 T1
V2 = (640 mmHg)(720 mL) (273 K) / (760 mmHg) (310 K)
V2 = 534 mL
What would be the volume at STP of 3.62 liters of nitrogen gas, measured at 649 torr and 16 °C?
P1V1 = P2V2 rearranged to solve for V2 is:
V2 = P1 V1 T2 V2 = (649 torr)(3.62 L) (273 K)
P2 T1(760 torr) (16 + 273K)
V2 = 2.92 L
P2 = 2.1 x 103 mmHg
T2 = 3.4 K or -270 oC
