BACKGROUND INFORMATION
Air is composed of several kinds of
colorless gases.
 Some gases have color.
Chlorine (Cl2): yellow green
Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2):
brownish-red
Any 1 mole of a gas occupies a
volume of 22.4 L.
KINETIC MOLECULAR THEORY OF GASES
Ideal
Gas: A hypothetical gas that
perfectly fits all assumptions of the
kinetic-molecular model.
Real
gas: A gas that does not
behave according to the
assumptions of the kineticmolecular theory.

1. Gas Consists of large numbers of tiny particles
that are far apart relative to their size.
2. Collisions between gases are always elastic.
 An elastic collision is one where there is no net
loss of total kinetic energy.
3. Gas particles are in continuous, rapid, random
motion.
4. There are no forces of attraction between gas
particles.
5. The temperature of a gas depends on the average
kinetic energy of the particles.

DALTON’S LAW OF PARTIAL PRESSURE

The sum of the partial pressures of all the
components in a gas mixture is equal to the total
pressure of a gas mixture.

with 33% oxygen. What is the partial pressure of
oxygen with the air pressure in the mask is
110Kpa?
