Unformatted text preview: verting from torrs or atmospheres to pascals is straightforward, as shown in Example 5.1. The pressure of a gas is measured as 49 torr. Represent this pressure in both atmospheres and pascals. Solution 6.4 x 1 atm 1 49 torr x = 6.4 x 10-- atm 760 terf 101,325 Pa 10-2 aan X = 6.5 X 10 3 Pa 1 atm SEE EXERCISES 5.35 AND 5.36 5.2 • The Gas Laws of BoyLe, CharLes, and Avogadro In this section we will consider several mathematical laws that relate the properties of gases. These laws derive from experiments involving careful measurements of the rele-vant gas properties. From these experimental results, the mathematical relationships among...
