Ideal Gas Law

PV = nRT

pressure

P

volume

V

number of moles

n

gas constant

R

temperature

T

1) Particles do not take up space.

2) Particles bounce off of each other without losing energy.

3) Particles are not attracted to one another. (no intermolecular forces)

2) Particles bounce off of each other without losing energy.

3) Particles are not attracted to one another. (no intermolecular forces)

3 Rules for ideal gases (vs real gases)

Combined Gas Law

P₁V₁ / T₁ = P₂V₂ / T₂

1) Particles are small and inert.

2) Temperature is high.

3) Pressure is low.

2) Temperature is high.

3) Pressure is low.

3 Conditions when real gases act almost exactly like ideal gases.

1) Temperature must be in kelvins

2) Units for P1 must match P2 (and units for V1 must match V2)

2) Units for P1 must match P2 (and units for V1 must match V2)

2 Rules for units on the combined gas law (P₁V₁ / T₁ = P₂V₂ / T₂)

Graham's Law

Rate₁/Rate₂ = sq rt(M₂)/sq rt (M₁)

1) The right side of the equation flips so that 2 is over 1.

2) Rate = amount/time

2) Rate = amount/time

2 Rules for on Graham's Law

Rate₁/Rate₂ = sq rt(M₂)/sq rt (M₁)

Rate₁/Rate₂ = sq rt(M₂)/sq rt (M₁)

(all units must match the gas constant R)

1) Temperature must be in kelvins.

2) Pressure must be in atm.

3) Volume must be in L.

1) Temperature must be in kelvins.

2) Pressure must be in atm.

3) Volume must be in L.

3 Rules for units on Ideal gas law

(PV = nRT)

(PV = nRT)

Mass can be used to find n (or conversely, n can be used to find mass) by converting between moles and grams.

Mass in the ideal gas law

(PV = nRT)

(PV = nRT)

effusion

the process that occurs when a gas escapes through a tiny hole in its container

rate (described in terms of time)

= 1/time (inverse)

rate (described in terms of amount)

= amount

specific heat formula

q = mc delta T

specific heat (variable)

c

heat added

q

looks like a triangle, means "change in"

delta

mass

m

unit of energy

Calorie (cal)

specific heat (definition)

the heat required to raise the temperature of 1g of a substance 1°C

specific heat of water

basis for the calorie
