Chapter 12 4 Pressure Pressure - Conversion Factors - 1 atm (atmosphere) = 760 mmHg - 1 atm (atmosphere) = 760 torr - 1 atm (atmosphere) = 1.01325 × 10 5 Pa (Pascal) - 1 atm (atmosphere) = 101.325 kPa (Kilopascal)
Chapter 12 5 The Gas Laws The Gas Laws - There are four variables required to describe a gas: - Amount of substance: moles - Volume of substance: liters - Pressures of substance: atmospheres (atm) - Temperature of substance: kelvin - The gas laws will hold two of the quantities constant and see how the other two vary.
