Gas Station How do molecules move around? How do the properties of a gas interrelate? o Text: 7.0-7.2 A. States of Matter     1. Gas: Random motion throughout container   molecules apart 2. Liquid: random motion throughout volume   molecules touching 3. Solid: oscillation around fixed positions   “molecules” touching B. Kinetic Molecular Theory     1. Molecules move with a: Distribution of speeds Distribution of kinetic energies 2. KE = ½ m v^2 KE = avg. KE, m = mass, v^2 = avg. speed 3. Ave KE  α  T (Ave KE = Thermal E) Two Gasses at same T o Same as ave KE!! C. Ideal Gas Law     1. “Ideal Gas” Particles are few and far between Particles don’t interact

Unformatted text preview: 2. PV = nRT P, V, T are measurable P: pressure (measure with barometer) V: volume of container T: absolute temp. (In Kelvin) n: # of moles of gas R: PV/nT = .0821 L-atm/mol-K o Ideal gas constant o 1 atm = 760mm Hg = 760 torr 3. PV = nRT allows predictions P vs. V P vs. T V vs. T 4. Some mathematical corrections For real gases o Ex. Van der Waals eq. o (P + a [n/V]^2) (V-bn) = nRT o a and b are constants Goals Describe molec. Motion in g, 1, s Compare KEs, speeds of gases Make predictions using PV = nRT...
