CHEM 1000 3.0 Gases 2 Problem set Chapter 6 • Questions 5, 9, 13, 26, 39, 41, 50, 57, 69, 73, 74, 78, 82
CHEM 1000 3.0 Gases 3 • We will be looking at Macroscopic and Microscopic properties: – Macroscopic • Properties of bulk gases • Observable – Pressure, volume, mass, temperature… – Microscopic • Properties at the molecular level • Not readily observable – Mass of molecules, molecular speed, energy, collision frequency

CHEM 1000 3.0 Gases 4 Macroscopic Properties • Our aim is to look at the relationship between the macroscopic properties of a gas and end up with the gas laws
CHEM 1000 3.0 Gases 5 Pressure • To contain a gas you must have a container capable of exerting a force on it (e.g. the walls of a balloon). • This implies that the the gas is exerting a balancing force • Normally we talk about the pressure (force/area) rather than force

CHEM 1000 3.0 Gases 6 Measuring Pressure • The simplest way to measure gas pressure is to have it balance a liquid pressure. • Therefore we need to quantify the liquid pressure
CHEM 1000 3.0 Gases 7 A h • Consider a cylinder of liquid with area A and height h • The force exerted at the bottom of the cylinder is its weight F = m.g • The pressure exerted is P = F/A = m.g/A • The density of the liquid is d=m/V so m = V.d but V=A.h •S o P = m.g/A = g.V.d/A = g.A.h.d/A = g.h.d

CHEM 1000 3.0 Gases 8 Barometer To measure Atmospheric Pressure On the left the tube is open On the right the tube is closed and a liquid column is supported by the atmospheric pressure: Air pressure equals the liquid pressure
CHEM 1000 3.0 Gases 9 Barometer (continued) So for a barometer P = g.h.d P = atmospheric pressure h = height of liquid column d = density of the liquid

CHEM 1000 3.0 Gases 10 Barometer (continued) For a barometer P = g.h.d Note that if we have a constant “g” and constant “d” (like with a mercury barometer on earth) P h so we can use h as a way of describing pressure
CHEM 1000 3.0 Gases 11 Atmospheric Pressure • The average pressure at sea level will support a column of 760 mm of mercury. • This is the definition of the pressure unit of “atmospheres” 1 atm = 760 mm Hg Also the unit mm Hg has become known as Torr (after Torricelli) 1 atm = 760 mm Hg = 760 Torr

CHEM 1000 3.0 Gases 12 Atmospheric Pressure • What is 1 atm in pressure units? P = g.h.d g = 9.81 m.s -2 , h = 0.76 m, d Hg = 13.6 g.cm -3 = 13.6x10 3 kg.m -3 P = 9.81x0.76x13.6x10 3 = 1.013x10 5 Pa (N.m -2 )
CHEM 1000 3.0 Gases 13 If we made a barometer out of water, what would be the height of the water column if the pressure is 745 torr? The problem calls for the relationship between P and h P = g.h.d 2 - 3 - 3 3 - 5 s m 9.81 g m kg 10 00 . 1 cm g 1.00 d Pa 10 1.013 760 745 P = × = = × × = 3 5 10 1.00 h 81 . 9 10 013 . 1 760 745 g.h.d P × × × = × × = h = 10.1 m
