1 Kinetic Molecular Theory: Gases particles in continuous, random, rapid motion collisions between particles are elastic volume occupied by the particles is negligibly small effect on their behavior attractive forces between particles have a negligible effect on their behavior gases have no fixed volume or shape, take the volume and shape of the container Test yourself Why does the pressure of a gas go up when more molecules are added to a sample at fixed volume and temperature? Which molecules in air have the fastest average speed? Boyle’s Law At constant temperature and mass of gas: V α 1/P V = a × 1/P where a is a proportionality constant thus VP = a V 1 P 1 = a = V 2 P 2 V 1 P 1 = V 2 P 2 Boyle’s Law Volume and Pressure Plots Charles’s Law : less obvious than Boyle’s law At constant pressure and mass of gas: V α T V = b × T where b is a proportionality constant V/T = b V 1 /T 1 = b = V 2 /T 2 V 1 /T 1 = V 2 /T 2
