Unformatted text preview: Chapter 11: States of Matter: Liquids and Solids
States of Matter
We began our study of states of matter at the beginning of the course, when we studied gases
in Chapter 5. We then moved inside atoms to study their electronic structure. Now we return to
states of matter to better understand liquids and solids.
1. Comparison of Gases, Liquids and Solids
When we studied gases, we compared the three states of matter in several ways
• gases and liquids take the shape of the container; solids retain their own shape
• gases expand to fill a container; gases can be compressed; liquids and solids have a
definite volume
We can explain these properties by comparing how the units (molecules, atoms or ions)
exist in each phase:
• in a gas the units are far apart and in constant motion
• in a liquid the units are close together and can tumble over each other
• in a solid the units are close together and in fixed positions relative to each other Changes of State

Phase Transitions
A phase transition is the change from one state of matter to another. Each transition has
a specific name:
• solid –––> liquid
melting
• solid –––> gas
sublimation
• liquid –––> gas
vaporization (evaporation)
These three transitions all require energy, so are endothermic.
• gas –––> liquid
condensation
• gas –––> solid
deposition (condensation)
• liquid –––> solid
freezing
These three transitions all release energy, so are exothermic. Chapter 11 Part 1 1 of 7 In the diagram below a change from lower to higher is endothermic; a change from
higher to lower is exothermic. gas

a. Vapor Pressure
Vapor pressure is the partial pressure
of a vapor over the liquid measured at
equilibrium at a given temperature.
Equilibrium in this case means that the
rate of vaporization is equal to the rate
of condensation. The graph to the right
represent the rates of vaporization and
condensation after a liquid has been
put into a closed vessel:
Vapor pressure depends on temperature. The higher the temperature, the higher
the vapor pressure. This is because as temperature is increased a greater
proportion of the molecules have enough energy to change from the liquid to the
gaseous state. The graph below shows the fraction of molecules that have
enough energy to vaporize at two temperatures. Chapter 11 Part 1 2 of 7 The graph to the below shows the change in vapor pressure with increasing
temperature for four different liquids: b. Boiling Point and Melting Point
The boiling point of a liquid is the temperature at which the vapor pressure of
the liquid is equal to atmospheric pressure.
The normal boiling point of a liquid is the temperature at
which the vapor pressure of the liquid is equal to 1
atmosphere (760 mmHg).
Boiling differs from evaporation because when a liquid
boils, bubble of vapor (gas) form within the body of the
liquids, whereas evaporation occurs only at the surface of
the liquid. See the diagram to the right.
The freezing point of a liquid is the temperature at which the liquid changes to a
crystalline solid. The melting point of a solid is the temperature at which a
crystalline solid changes to a liquid. The value of the freezing point is identical to
the value of the melting point for a given substance. c. Chapter 11 Heat of Phase Transition
Heat is required to raise the temperature of a substance. The quantity of heat
required is related to the specific heat capacity of the substance in each physical
state. The specific heat of ice differs from that of liquid water and from that of
water vapor. Heat is also required to change a substance from solid to liquid and
from liquid to gas. The quantity of heat required is related to the heat of the
phase transition.
Part 1 3 of 7 The graph below illustrates the change in temperature of a substance as heat is
added at a constant rate. Note that when only one phase is present, the
temperature increases as heat is added. However, when a phase change is
occurring, that is, when two phases are in equilibrium, there is no temperature
change. All of the energy being added is used for the phase change. The heat of fusion , DHfus, is the energy required to change from solid to liquid.
The heat of vaporization, DHvap, is the energy required to change from liquid to
gas.
Example:
How much heat is required to vaporize 1.00 kg of ammonia. DHvap = 23.4 kJ/mol.
Given:
mass = 1.00 kg ammonia;
DHvap = 23.4 kJ/mol
Process:
We begin this problem with the amount of ammonia given, convert kg to grams,
convert grams to moles, and finally convert moles to kJ using DHvap.
Molar mass ammonia (NH3) = 1(14.00674) + 3(1.00794) = 17.03056 g

Temperature
The graph showing the increase in vapor pressure as temperature increases was
not linear. However, when the natural log of vapor pressure (ln P) is plotted
1
against the reciprocal of temperature ( /T) a linear graph results. The equation
describing this graph is called the Clausius–Clapeyron equation.

Carbon disulfide, CS2, has a normal boiling point of 46oC (vapor pressure = 760 mmHg)
and a heat of vaporization of 26.8 kJ/mol. What is the vapor pressure of carbon disulfide
at 35oC?
Given:
P1 = 760 mmHg
P2 = ?
T1 = 46ºC
Process: Given: T2 = 35ºC DHvap = 26.8 kJ/mol P2 = ?
We begin this problem by converting temperature to K and then use the Clausius
Clapeyron equation to solve for P2. Note that R uses J while DHvap uses kJ. This
requires that we convert to J.
P1 = 760 mmHg
P2 = ?
T1 = 46ºC + 273 = 319 K T2 = 35ºC + 273 = 308 K
R = 8.314 J/(mol•K) 3 DHvap = 26.8 x 10 J/mol P2 = 3

To solve this begin with the subtraction inside the parenthesis: 1
308 K 3 P2
26.8 x 10 J/mol
ln 760 mmHg = 8.314 J/(mol•K)
We can now multiply by DHvap and divide by R: –0.0011957/K P2
760 mmHg = –0.360891006
Note that there are no units on the right side of the equation; they have canceled. The
next step is to take the antilog of both sides. This is either the INV LN key or eX key on
your calculator.

Solve now for P2:

Example:
Carbon disulfide, CS2, has a normal boiling point of 46.5oC (vapor pressure = 760.0
mmHg) and a vapor pressure of of 400.0 mmHg at 28.0oC?
Given:
P1 = 760.0 mmHg
P2 = 400.0 mmHg
T1 = 46.5ºC T2 = 28.0ºC DHvap =? Chapter 11 Part 1 5 of 7 Process: Given: We begin this problem by converting temperature to K and then use the Clausius
Clapeyron equation to solve for P2. Because a decimal place is given for
temperature, we need to use 273.15 for the conversion.
P1 = 760 mmHg
P2 = 400.0 mmHg
T1 = 319.65 K T2 = 301.15 K
R = 8.314 J/(mol•K) DHvap = ?

To solve this begin with with the left side (where there are no variables). The natural log
of the ratio:

Save this result in your memory. Now work with the parenthesis:
DHvap
–0.641853886 = 8.314 J/(mol•K)
–0.000192182
Divide this result by R:
–0.641853886

Now solve for DHvap:

27767.1971 J/mol

A phase diagram is a graph that shows the temperature and pressure conditions that
shows to the different various sets of conditions under which each state of matter is
stable.
A phase diagram is made of up regions that
are separated by lines. Each region
corresponds to a different state of matter.
In the phase diagram for water that is shown to
the right, we can see that the region for gas is
at the highest temperatures and the lowest
pressures. The region for the solid is at the
lowest temperatures and highest pressures.
The lines represent the conditions under which
the two phases are in equilibrium.
There are also two specific points:
Triple point: all three phases exist in equilibrium at these conditions (point A)
Critical point: temperature above which liquid cannot exist. Chapter 11 Part 1 6 of 7 a. Melting–Point Curve
On the diagram above, the melting point curve is the from A to B. Crossing this
line from left to right is melting. Crossing this line from right to left is freezing.
When the solid is more dense than the liquid (the usual case) this line slants to
the right. When the solid is less dense than the liquid (as is the case for water
and is shown above) this line slants to the left. b. Vapor–Pressure Curves for the Liquid and the Solid
On the diagram above, the line from A to C represents the equilibrium between
liquid and gas. Crossing this line from left to right is boiling. Crossing this line
from right to left is condensation.
On the diagram above, the line from A to D represents the equilibrium between
solid and gas. Crossing this line from left to right is sublimation. Crossing this line
from right to left is deposition or condensation. c. Chapter 11 Critical Temperature and Pressure
On the graph above, point C is the critical point. The temperature at this point is
called the critical temperature. The pressure corresponding to this temperature is
called the critical pressure. Part 1 7 of 7 ...
