Gases Gases behave under the kinetic molecular theory and are affected by temperature, volume, and pressure. Temperature is the average kinetic energy of moving particles. When an object is hot, it possesses more kinetic energy than a cold object. Temperature is measured is Kelvin (centigrade + 273). Volume is the amount of space that something occupies. Pressure is force per unit of area Pressure = Force/Area. Pressure may be measured in mm Hg, torr, bar, or atmospheres. 1 atm = 760 mm Hg = 760 toss = 1.01 bar = 101.325 kPa Boyle’s Law- Robert Boyle discovered that the volume of a gas is inversely proportional to the pressure placed on it while all other factors remain constant. PV = constant Charles’s Law- Jacques Charles discovered in 1787 that the volume of a gas is directly proportional to the temperature of the gas while all other factors remain constant. V/T = constant Gay-Lussac’s Law- The pressure of a gas is directly proportional to the temperature of the gas. P/T = constant
