Chapter 5 Gases A Gas• Uniformly fills any container • Mixes completely with any other gas • Can easily be compressed • Exerts pressure on its surroundings The properties of a gas depends upon four variables• Pressure (P) – Is equal to force/unit area – Measured by a barometer – SI unit = Newtons/meter2 = 1 Pascal (Pa) – 1 standard atmosphere = 101,325 Pa – 1 atm = 760 mm Hg = 760 torr • Volume (V) of the gas = volume of the container • Temperature (T) – measured in Kelvin • Number of moles (n) A Torricellian Barometer A Simple Manometer The Gas Laws • Boyle’s Law: At constant temperature, the volume of a gas is inversely proportional to the pressure V 1/P V = k x 1/P PV = k (where k is constant) P1V1 = P2V2 = constant (k) = PV (1 and 2 represents two states) Pressure x Volume = constant (T = constant) (Holds precisely only at very low pressures) A J-Tube Similar to the One Used by Boyle Plotting Data for Boyle’s Law Example: A sample of CO2 gas is placed in a 125 mL flask where it has a pressure of 67.5 mm Hg. What pressure will it has when it is transferred to a 500 mL flask at the same temperature? P1 = 67.5 mm Hg P2 = ? V1 = 125 mL V2 = 500 mL P1V 1 = P2V2 P2 = (P1V 1 )/V2 = (67.5 mm Hg x 125 mL)/500 mL = 16.9 mm Hg Charle’s Law: At constant pressure (P), the volume of a gas is directly proportional to temperature of the gas and extrapolates to zero at zero Kelvin. V T V = bT Where, b = proportionality constant T = Kelvin temperature, V/T = b V1/T1 = V2/T2 = b Plots of V Versus T (ºC) for Several Gases Example: A sample of gas at 15oC and 1 atm has a volume of 2.58 L. What volume will this gas occupy at 38oC and 1 atm? T1 = 15oC + 273 = 288 K, V1 = 2.58 L , T2 = 38oC + 273 = 311 K, V2 =? V1/T1 = V2/T2 Solving for V2 = V1 T2 / T1 = (2.58 L x 311 K)/288 K = 2.79 L • Avogadro’s Law: Equal volume of gases at the same temperature and pressure contain the same number of particles. At constant temperature and pressure, the volume is directly proportional to the number of moles of gas (at low pressures). V = an Where, V = the volume of the gas, n = the number of moles of gas particle, and a = proportionality constant V1/n1 = V2/n2 = a = constant At constant temperature and pressure, the volume of a gas is directly proportional to the number of moles of gas. Balloons Holding 1.0 L of Gas at 25º C and 1 atm Example: 12.2 L sample containing 0.50 mol oxygen gas at a pressure of 1 atm and a temperature of 25oC. If all this O2 were converted to ozone at the same temp. and pressure, what would be the volume of ozone? 3O2 2O3(g) 0.50 mol O2 x (2 mol O3 )/(3 mol O2 ) = 0.33 mol O3 V1= 12.2 L, V2 = ? n1 = 0.50 mol, n2 = 0.33 mol V1/n1 = V2/n2 Solving for V2 = V1n2 / n1 = (12.2 L x 0.33 mol)/(0.50 mol) = 8.1 L The Ideal Gas Law: (An equation of state for a gas) Boyle’s law: V = k/P (at constant T and n) Charles law: V = bT (at constant P and n) Avogadro’s law: V = an (at constant T and P) The volume of gas depends on pressure, temperature, and number of moles of gas present, can be combined as follows: V = R(Tn/P); where, R = combined proportionality constant known as universal gas constant. PV = nRT (Holds closely at P < 1 atm) P = Pressure in atm V = Volume in liters n = number of moles T = Temperature in Kelvins R = Universal gas constant = 0.08206 L.atm K-1 mol-1 Example: Nitrogen gas in an air bag at 850 mm Hg and 25oC has a volume of 3.5 x 104 mL. How many moles of gas are in there? P = 850 mm Hg x 1 atm / 760 mm Hg = 1.118 atm T = 25oC + 273 = 298 K V = 3.5 x 104 mL x 1L / 1000 mL = 35 L PV = nRT n = PV/RT =(1.118 atm x 35 L)/(0.0821 L.Atm K-1mol-1 x 298K) = 1.6 moles N2 Example: A gas containing 0.35 mol argon at a temperature of 13oC and a pressure of 568 torr is heated to 56oC and pressure of 897 torr. Calculate the change in volume that occurs. P1 = 568 torr x 1 atm/760 torr P2 = 897 torr x 1 atm/760 torr = 0.747 atm = 1.18 atm V1 = ? V2 = ? T1 = 13oC + 273 = 286 K T2 = 56oC + 273 = 329 K n1 = 0.35 mol n2 = 0.35 mol P1V1 = n1RT1 P1V1 = n1RT1 V1 = n1RT1 /P1 = (0.35 mol x 0.08206 L.atm.mol-1.K-1 x 286K) / (0.747 atm) = 11 L V2 = n2RT2 /P2 = (0.35 mol x 0.08206 L.atm.mol-1.K-1 x 329K) / (1.18 atm) = 8.0 L V = V2 - V1 = 8.00 L – 11.0 L = -3 L (Volume decreases) Gas Stoichiometry The conditions 0oC and 1 atm called Standard Temperature and Pressure (STP) Suppose we have 1 mol of an ideal gas at 0oC and 1 atm, the volume of the gas is given by ideal gas law, V = nRT / P = (1 mol x 0.08206 L.atm.mol-1.K-1 x 273K) / (1 atm) = 22.42 L Molar Volume of an ideal gas at STP A Mole of Any Gas Occupies a Volume of Approximately 22.4 L at STP Example: A sample of N2 gas has a volume of 1.75 L at STP. How many moles of N2 are present? 1.75 L N2 x (1 mol N2)/22.42 L N2 = 7.81 x 10-2 mol N2 OR PV = nRT n = PV/RT = (1 atm x 1.75 L)/(0.08206 L.atm.mol-1.K-1 x 273 K) = 7.81 x 10-2 mol N2 Molar Mass By using ideal gas law we can calculate the molar mass (molecular weight) of a gas from its measured density. PV = nRT n = grams of gas/molar mass = m/molar mass PV = (m/molar mass)RT P = mRT/V(molar mass) m/V is the gas density “d” in units of grams per liter, Thus, P = dRT/molar mass molar mass = dRT/P If density of a gas at a given temperature and pressure is known, its molar mass can be calculated. Example: The density of a gas was measured at 1.50 atm and 27oC and found to be 1.95 g/L. Calculate the molar mass of the gas. P = 1.50 atm T = 27oC + 273 = 300K d = 1.95 g/L Molar mass = dRT/P 1.95 = g L 0.08206 = 32.0 g/mol L . atm K . m ol 1.50 atm 300 K Dalton’s Law of Partial Pressures • For a mixture of gases in a container, the total pressure exerted is the sum of the pressure that each gas would exert if it were alone. Ptotal = P1+ P2 + P3 + --- (P1, P2 , P3 --- represent partial P) Partial pressure of each gas can be calculated from ideal gas law, P1 = n1RT/V, P2 = n2RT/V, P3 = n3RT/V Ptotal = P1+ P2 + P3 + ---- = n1RT/V + n2RT/V + n3RT/V = (n1+n2+n3+---)RT/V = ntotal (RT/V) • For a mixture of ideal gas, the total number of moles of particles is important, not the identity or composition of the involved gas. Partial Pressure of Each Gas in a Mixture Partial Pressure Example: 46 L He at 25oC and 1.0 atm and 12 L O2 at 25oC and 1.0 atm were pumped into a tank with a volume of 5.0 L. Calculate the partial pressure of each gas and the total pressure in the tank at 25oC.

Calculate the mole fraction of O2 present. Mole fraction of O2, O2 = PO2/PTotal = 156 torr/743 torr = 0.210 Example: The mole fraction of N2 in the air is 0.7808. Calculate the partial pressure of N2 in air when the atomospheric pressure is 760 torr. The partial pressure of N2, PN2 = N2 x PTotal = 0.7808 x 760 torr = 593 torr The Kinetic Molecular Theory of Gases • Postulates for an Ideal Gas: 1. The particles are so small that the volume of the particles can be assumed to be negligible (zero). 2. The particles are in constant motion. The collision of the particles with the walls of the container are the cause of the pressure exerted by the gas. 3. The particles are assumed to exert no forces on each other, they are assumed neither to attract nor to repel each other. 4. The average kinetic energy of a collection of gas particles is assumed to be directly proportional to the Kelvin temperature of the gas.

Describes the passage of gas into an evacuated chamber. • Diffusion: Movement of gas particles through space, from a region of high concentration to one of low concentration. Describes the mixing of gases. The rate of diffusion is the rate of gas mixing. Graham’s law of effusion: The rate of effusion of a gas is inversely proportional to the square root of the mass of its particle. Relative rates of effusion of two gases at the same temperature and pressure are given by the inverse ratio of the square roots of the masses of the gas particle: M2 Rate of effusion for gas 1 Rate of effusion for gas 2 M1 M1 and M2 represents the molar masses of the gases. Diffusion: Distance traveled by gas 1 M2 Distance traveled by gas 2 M1 The Effusion of a Gas into an Evacuated Chamber HCI(g) and NH3(g) Meet in a Tube Real Gases • An ideal gas is a hypothetical concept. No gas exactly follows the ideal gas law. Real gas typically exhibit behavior that is closest to ideal behavior at low pressure and high temperature. Must correct ideal gas behavior when at high pressure (smaller volume) and low temperature (attractive forces become important) P obs n 2 a V V nb nRT Rearrangement gives vander Waals equation: n P obs a V nb nRT V 2 Plots of PV/nRT Versus P for Several Gases (200 K) Plots of PV/nRT Versus P for Nitrogen Gas at Three Temperatures Chemistry in the Atmosphere • The principal components are N2 and O2. Other important gases are H2O, CO2, Ar, Ne, He, CH4, Kr, H2, NO, Xe etc. • Because of gravitational effects, the composition of the earth’s atmosphere is not constant. • Heavier molecules tend to be near the earth’s surface and light molecules tend to migrate to higher altitudes. • Troposphere is the lowest layer of the atmosphere. …Chemistry in the Atmosphere continued… • Ozone in the upper atmosphere helps prevent high energy ultraviolet radiation from penetrating to the earth. • Two main sources of pollution are– transportation and the production of electricity. • The combustion of petroleum produces CO, CO2, NO, and NO2, along with unburned molecules from petroleum.
