## Study Notes

### Boyle's Law

• Boyle's Law states that the pressure of a gas is inversely proportional to its volume when temperature remains constant.
• If pressure increases, volume decreases, and vice versa, illustrating the relationship between these two properties of gases.

### Charles's Law

• According to Charles's Law, the volume of a gas is directly proportional to its absolute temperature when pressure is held constant.
• If temperature increases, the volume of the gas also increases, and if temperature decreases, the volume decreases.

### Ideal Gas Law Factors

• The Ideal Gas Law relates pressure (P), volume (V), temperature (T), and the number of moles (n) of an ideal gas in the equation PV = nRT.
• Factors affecting gas behavior include pressure, volume, temperature, and the number of gas molecules.

### Ideal Gas Constant (R)

• The value of the ideal gas constant (R) is approximately 0.0821 L·atm/(K·mol) or 8.314 J/(K·mol), depending on units used in calculations.

### Behavior of Gases in Containers

• Gases take the shape and volume of their containers due to their particles being in constant, random motion and having much lower density compared to liquids and solids.
• There are minimal intermolecular forces in gases, allowing them to expand and fill available space completely.
