A’Lesia Johnson Chapter 10 notes- Gas physical properties - Expands spontaneously to fill container - Form homogeneous mixtures with each other Pressure Force per unit area P = F/A Newton (N) SI unit for force 1 N = 1 kg-m/s^2 Pascal (Pa) SI unit for pressure 1 Pa = 1 N/m^2 = 1 kg/m-s^2 Force (F) Force = mass*acceleration F=ma Standard atmospheric pressure Pressure sufficient to support a column of mercury 760 mm high (typical pressure at sea level) How a barometer works When the mercury-filled tube is inverted, some of the mercury flows out, but a column of mercury remains inside; this is due to the weight of Earth's atmosphere pushing on the mercury in the dish. For atmospheric pressure How a manometer works Pgas = Patm + Ph Pressure of the gas = atmospheric pressure + difference of height in two arms For pressure of enclosed gases Boyle's law

    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.
