# The Gas Laws ```THE GAS LAWS
•Define
pressure and gas pressure.
•Identify
factors that affect gas pressure.
•Predict
changes in gas pressure due to changes in temperature,
volume, and number of particles.
•Explain
Charles’s law, Boyle’s law, Gay- Lussac’s Law and the
combined gas law.
•Apply
gas laws to solve problems involving gases.
PRESSURE = IS THE RESULT OF A FORCE
DISTRIBUTED OVER AN AREA.
The SI unit of pressure is derived from the
units of force and area.
 The SI unit for pressure is Pascal (Pa).


Collisions between particles of a gas and
the walls of the container cause the
pressure in a closed container of gas.
FACTORS THAT AFFECT GAS PRESSURE

1. Temperature = Raising the temperature of a
gas will increase its pressure if the volume of the
gas and the number of particles are constant
FACTORS THAT AFFECT GAS PRESSURE

2. Volume= Reducing the volume of a gas
increases its pressure if the temperature of the
gas and the number of particles are constant.
FACTORS AFFECT GAS PRESSURE

3. Number of Particles = increasing the number
of particles will increase the pressure of a gas if
the temperature and the volume are constant.
