What is an Ideal Gas? An ideal gas satisfies these conditions: – It consists of a large number of identical molecules. – The volume occupied by the molecules is negligible compared to the volume of the container. – The molecules obey Newton's Laws of Motion, and they move in random motion. – The molecules experience forces only during collisions, which are completely elastic and take a negligible amount of time.

Worksheet Write out the ideal gas law: What is n ? What is the value of R, the universal gas constant, in SI units of J/(mol-K)? n is the number of moles. What's a mole? Let's look at molecular mass . PV = nRT n (moles) = m total (mass in grams) M (molecular mass in g/mol) R = 8.314 J/(mol K) = 0.0821 (L atm)/(mol K) A mole of anything has the same number of molecules.

Worksheet Express the ideal gas law in terms of N , the number of gas molecules, instead of n , the number of moles. Boltzmann's constant: Avogadro's number N A is the number of molecules in one mole of any gas. Most physicists use the form: PV = Nk B T k B = R N A = 1.38 × 10 23 J/K N A = 6.02 × 10 23 = N R N A T = Nk B T PV = nRT = N N A RT

Quiz For a given process, if n or N is constant, we can look at ratios: (A) P 2 < P 1 (B) P 2 = P 1 (C) P 1 < P 2 < 2P 1 (D) P 2 = 2P 1 (E) P 2 > 2P 1 The temperature of an ideal gas is raised from 10 o C to 20 o C while the volume is kept constant.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
