Molar Volumes Molar Volume - the volume occupied by one mole of a substance At 298 K and 1 atm a typical solid or liquid occupies 10 to 100 cm 3 /mole, a gas occupies 24,000 cm 3 /mole Molecules in solids and liquids are touching. In the gas the molecules are separated widely in space. Compressibility - fractional decrease in volume with increasing pressure. Gases are very compressible, liquids and solids are not very compressible Thermal expansion coefficient - the fractional increase in volume with increasing temperature. Gases have high thermal expansion coefficients, liquids
