BMB428 Dr. Song Tan Physical Chemistry with Biological Applications Fall 2007 Problem Set 3: Kinetic Theory of Gases Due Sept 6, 2007 This problem set is shorter than usual to give you an opportunity to review the calculus covered in Problem Set 2. Since your ability to understand and complete future problem sets requires a good working knowledge of derivatives, including partial derivatives, please make sure that you are comfortable with all the material in Problem Set 2. As with Problem Sets 1 and 2, groups of four or fewer students can hand in a problem set together. Your group MUST choose a different person to write the final answers than you used for Problem Sets 1 or 2.

Unformatted text preview: 1. Problem 2.49 (p. 35): Apply the kinetic theory of gases to explain: (a) Boyle's law, (b) Charles' law (use alternate form on p. 13 of P T), (c) Dalton's law 2. Problem 2.50 (p. 35): Is temperature a microscopic or macroscopic concept? Explain. 3. Problem 2.53 (p. 35): A square box contains He (helium) at 25C. If the atoms are colliding with the walls perpendicularly (at 90) at the rate of 4.0 x 10 22 times per second, calculate the force (in Newtons) and the pressure (in atms) exerted on the wall per mol of He given that the area of the wall is 100 cm 2 and the speed of the atoms is 600 m s-1 ....
