P a r t   1 :   E Q U I L I B R I U M Gas Gas  is the simplest state of matter Physical State  – physical condition, defined by physical  properties Gas  is a function of physical state where three are  changing while one is constant. Perfect Gas –  Ideal gas Pressure  – occurs due to bumping of the molecules on  the walls of the container Standard:  1 bar = 10 5  Pa Mechanical Equilibrium –  when movable wall is not  moving between two gases exerting different pressure  (e.g. piston) Measuring Pressure: Using a Column Temperature – flow of kinetic energy Boundaries 1. Diathermic – heat can be passed (e.g. metal) 2. Adiabatic – heat cannot be passed Thermal Equilibrium  – equilibrium in temperature when  there is no more change in state Zeroth Law of Thermodynamics  – when A is T.E. in B  and B is T.E. with C, then A is T.E. with C Or. .  T A  = T = T C T ABS   0 C + 273.15 Note:  Absolute temperature is obtained by
