characteristics of gas  -   possible for substance to coexist as solid, liquid, and gas at the same time vapor - gaseous form of a substance normally existing as liquid/solid expands to fill the container it’s in (gas volume = volume of container) pressure added to gas >> gas gets compressed easily >> volume decreases form homogeneous mixtures (regardless of type of gases involved) pressure  - force acted upon a given area P = F/A newton (N) - SI unit for force, kg-m/s2 pascal (Pa) - SI unit for pressure, N/m2 o kPA = 1000 Pa o bar = 105 Pa, approximate atmospheric pressure at sea level barometer - invented by Evangelista Torricelli, measures atmospheric pressure o manometer - used to measure pressure of liquids/gases, similar to barometer standard atmospheric pressure = pressure needed to support column of mercury 760 mm high
