Study Notes
Pressure and Units
- Pressure (P): Force per unit area on a surface, a key concept in gas behavior.
- Newton (N): Unit of force; 1 N increases the speed of a 1 kg mass by 1 m/s².
- Barometer: Instrument for measuring atmospheric pressure, essential for understanding weather patterns.
- Millimeters of Mercury (mm Hg): Common unit of pressure; 1 atm equals 760 mm Hg.
- Atmosphere of Pressure (atm): Standard atmospheric pressure, equivalent to 760 mm Hg.
- Pascal (Pa): Pressure unit; defined as the pressure from a 1 N force acting on 1 m².
Temperature and Conditions
- Standard Temperature and Pressure (STP): Defined as 1 atm and 0°C, used for gas comparisons.
- Absolute Zero: Theoretical lowest temperature (-273.15°C), assigned 0 K on the Kelvin scale.
Gas Behavior Laws
- Partial Pressure: Pressure exerted by individual gases in a mixture; crucial for calculating total gas pressures.
- Dalton's Law of Partial Pressures: States the total gas pressure equals the sum of partial pressures of all gases.
- Gas Laws: Mathematical relationships governing gas behavior regarding volume, temperature, pressure, and amount.
Individual Gas Laws
- Boyle's Law: For a fixed mass of gas, volume varies inversely with pressure at constant temperature.
- Charles's Law: For a fixed mass of gas at constant pressure, volume varies directly with Kelvin temperature.
- Gay-Lussac's Law: For a fixed volume of gas, pressure varies directly with Kelvin temperature.
- Combined Gas Law: Integrates Boyle's, Charles's, and Gay-Lussac's Laws to describe the relationship between pressure, volume, and temperature.
- Avogadro's Law: Equal volumes of gases at same temperature and pressure contain equal numbers of molecules.
Additional Concepts
- Gay-Lussac's Law of Combining Volumes of Gases: At constant temperature and pressure, gas volumes react in small whole number ratios.
- Standard Molar Volume of a Gas: Volume occupied by one mole of gas at STP; approximately 22.414 L.
- Ideal Gas Law: Relates pressure, volume, temperature, and moles of gas through a mathematical formula.
- Ideal Gas Constant (R): The constant used in the Ideal Gas Law; varies based on the units (e.g., mm Hg, kPa, atm).
STP Recap
- STP: Standard conditions for gas calculations; defined as 0°C and 1 atm pressure.
