KMT assumptions are • Gases consist of molecules in constant, random motion. • P arises from collisions with container walls. • No attractive or repulsive forces between molecules. Collisions elastic. • Volume of molecules is negligible. Kinetic Molecular Theory Kinetic Molecular Theory u2 root mean square speed where u is the speed and M is the molar mass. • speed INCREASES with T • speed DECREASES with M Kinetic Molecular Theory 3 At the same T, all gases have the same average KE. As T goes up, KE also increases — and so does speed. Because we assume molecules are in motion, they have a kinetic energy. KE = _____________ At the same T, At the same T, ________________________ ________________________ As T goes up, KE also _____________ — and so does speed. 4 5 Maxwell’s equation 3RT M 2 Distribution of Gas Molecule Speeds Page 1 Velocity of Gas Molecules Molecules of a given gas have a Molecules speeds. range of range of 6 Velocity of Gas Molecules 7 8 GAS DIFFUSION AND EFFUSION Average velocity decreases with increasing mass. • diffusion is the gradual mixing of molecules of different gases. GAS DIFFUSION AND EFFUSION Graham’s law governs effusion and diffusion of gas molecules. Rate for A Rate for B M of B M of A Rate of effusion is Rate of effusion is inversely proportional inversely proportional to its molar mass. to its molar mass. Thomas Graham, 1805-1869. Professor in Glasgow and London. 10 Molecules effuse thru holes in a rubber balloon, for example, at a rate (= moles/time) that is • proportional to T • inversely proportional to M. Therefore, He effuses more rapidly than O 2 at same T. • effusion is the movement of molecules through a small hole into an empty container.
