4. Ideal Gas Law
5. Solving Gas Law Problems
The density of gases is much less than that of solids or
Gas molecules must be very far apart compared to
liquids and solids.
Liquids and gases are fluids.
They easily flow.
1. Gases can be compressed into smaller volumes. Their
densities can be increase by applying increased
2. Gases exert pressure on their surroundings. In turn,
pressure must be exerted to confine gases.
3. Gases can expand without limits. Gases completely
and uniformly occupy the volume of any container.
4. Gases diffuse into one another, and so samples of gas
placed in the same container mix completely.
Conversely, different gases in a mixture do not separate
on standing.
5. The amounts and properties of gases are described in
terms of temperature, pressure, the volume occupied
and the number of moles present.
is force per unit area. (lb/in2,N/m2)
Atmospheric pressure is measured using a barometer.
Definitions of standard pressure:
76 cm Hg
760 mm Hg
760 torr
1 atmosphere
101.3 kPa
BOYLES LAW: P and V relationship
V 1/P or V= k (1/P) or PV = k
P1V1= k1; P2V2= k2; k1= k2 for the same sample of a gas at
the same T; Thus we can write Boyles Law
mathematically as P1V1= P2V2
Example: At 25C a sample of He has a volume of 4.00 x
102mLunder a pressure of 7.60 x 102torr. What volume
would it occupy under a pressure of 2.00 atm at the same
P1V1 = P2V2
V2 = P1 V1/ P2
= (760 torr)(400 mL) / 1520 torr
= 2.00102 mL
CHARLESS LAW: T and V relationship
Charless law states that the volume of a gas is directly
proportional to the absolute temperature at constant
Gas laws must use the Kelvin scale to be correct.
V T or V = kT or V/T = k
V1 / T1 = k; V2 / T2 = k; V1 / T1 = V2 / T2
Example: A sample of hydrogen, H2, occupies 1.00 x
102mLat 25.0C and 1.00 atm. What volume would it
occupy at 50.0C under the same pressure?
V1 / T1 = V2 / T2 V2 = V1 T2 / T1
V2 = 1.00102mL 323K / 298K
= 108 mL

GAY-LUSSACS LAW: P and T relationship

P T or P= kT or P/T = k
P1 / T1 = k1; P2 / T2 = k2; k1 = k2
Gay-Lussacs Law P1 / T1 = P2 / T2 or P1T2 = P2T1
Standard temperature and pressure is given the symbol
It is a reference point for some gas calculations.
Standard P 1.00 atm or 101.3 kPa
Standard T 273.15 K or 0.00C
Boyles and Charles Laws combined into one statement
is called the combined gas law equation.
Boyles Law
Charles Law
P1V1 = P2V2
V1/T1 = V2/T2
For a given sample of gas:
The combined gas law is:
PV/T = k
P1V1/T1 = P2V2/T2
Example: A sample of nitrogen gas, N2, occupies 7.50 x
102mLat 75.00C under a pressure of 8.10 x 102torr.
What volume would it occupy at STP?
V1 = 750mL
V2 = ?
T1 = 348 K
T2 = 273
P1 = 810 torr
P2 = 760 torr
Solve for V2 = P1V1T2 / P2 T1
= (810 torr)(750 mL)(273 K) / (760 torr)(348 K)
Avogadros Law states that at the same temperature
and pressure, equal volumes of two gases contain the
same number of molecules (or moles) of gas.
If we set the temperature and pressure for any gas to be
STP, then one mole of that gas has a volume called the
standard molar volume.
The standard molar volume is 22.4 L at STP.
This is another way to measure moles.
For gases, the volume is proportional to the number of
One mole of a gas occupies 36.5 L and its density is 1.36
g/L at a given temperature and pressure. (a) What is its
molar mass? (b) What is its density at STP?
? g/mol = 36.5 L/mol 1.36 g/L = 49.6 g/mol
? g/LSTP = 49.6 g/mol 1mol/22.4 L = 2.21 g/L
Boyles Law -V 1/P (at constant T & n)
Charles Law V T (at constant P & n)
Avogadros Law V n (at constant T & P)
Combine these three laws: V nT/P
Convert the proportionality into an equality: V = nRT/P
This provides the Ideal Gas Law. PV = nRT
R is a proportionality constant called the universal gas
constant. R = 0.0821 L atm/mol K
Determination of the value of R.
Recognize that for one mole of a gas at 1.00 atm, and
273 K (STP), the volume is 22.4 L.
Use these values in the ideal gas law.
R = PV/nT = (1.00 atm)(22.4 L) / (1.00 mol)(273 K)
= 0.0821 L atm /mol K
R has other values if the units are changed.
R = 8.314 J/mol K
Use this value in thermodynamics.
R = 8.314 kg m2/s2K mol
Use this later in this chapter for gas velocities.

R = 8.314 dm3kPa/K mol

This is R in all metric units.
R = 1.987 cal/K mol
This the value of R in calories rather than J.
1. What volume would 50.0 g of ethane, C2H6, occupy at
1.40 x 102C under a pressure of 1.82 x 103torr?
To use the ideal gas law correctly, it is very important
that all of your values be in the correct units!
T = 140 + 273 = 413 K
50 g (1 mol/30 g) = 1.67 mol
P = 1820 torr(1 atm/760 torr) = 2.39 atm
V= nRT / P
= (1.67 mol)(0.0821 L atm/mol K)(413 K) / 2.39 atm
= 23.6
2. Nitric Acid, a very important industrial chemical, is
made by dissolving the gas nitrogen dioxide, NO2, in
water. Calculate the density of NO2 gas, g/L, at 1.34 at
and 50C.
(Use ideal gas equation to fin n, in any V at the specified
pressure and temperature. Then convert moles to grams to
express the density in g/L, V=1L)

V = 1.00 L
P= 1.24 atm
T = 50C + 273 = 323K
PV = nRT
n= PV / RT
n = (1.24 atm)(1.00 L) / (0.0821 L atm/ mol K)(323 K)
= 0.0468 mol
Density = ? g/L = 0.0468 mol/L 46g/mol = 2.15 g/L

n = PV/RT = (1.00 atm)(0.101L)/(0.0821 l atm/mol J)(273 K)
= 0.00451 mol
?g/mol = 0.262 g/ 0.00451 mol = 58.1 mol

? mol C atoms = 80.0 g C 1 mol/12.0 g = 6.67 mol C

? mol H atoms = 20.0 g H 1mol/ 1.01g = 19.8 mol H
(Determine smallest whole number ratio)

19.8/6.67 = 3 the empirical formula is CH3 with mass = 15

(The molar mass is the mass divided by number of moles.)

n = 0.732 g/0.0244 mol = 30.0 g/mol

Actual Mass/Empirical Mass = 30.0/15.0 = 2
(the molecular formula is doubled)
