11/7/2011 2 4 General Properties of Gases Gases are composed of a large collection of particles in constant random motion. Gases occupy containers uniformly and completely. Gases diffuse rapidly to form homogeneous mixtures. Most of the volume of a gas is empty space. 5 Properties of Gases Gas properties are characterized by the following quantities: V = volume of the gas (__) T = temperature (__) n = amount (______) P = pressure (__________) 6 Pressure Atmospheric pressure of air is measured with a device called a _____________ First developed by Evangelista Torricelli in 1643.

The pressure of the atmosphere is proportional to the __________ of the column and the density of the liquid. 8 Pressure density volume ´ d V = ´ g d V A ´ ´ = P g d h = ´ ´ = height (x) We conclude the pressure is ___________ to the density and the height of a column of a given substance. since mass (m) = force P area = m g A ´ = 3 2 Volume (x ) since Area (x ) 9 Problem Mercury has a density of 13.6 g/cm 3 and water has a density of 1.00 g/cm 3 . If a column of mercury has a height of 755 mm, how high would a corresponding column of water be in feet? Solution : We begin by setting the pressures equal: P Hg = P water Since P = g d h We can write: Hg g d ´ Hg h ´ = water g d ´ water h ´
