According to Charles' law, when the temperature of a gas increases at constant pressure, its ______________.
A graph of Charles' law shows the relationship between ___________________.
temperature and volume of a gas
A graph that shows that the pressure of a gas varies inversely with its volume under constant temperature demonstrates _________________.
A graph that shows that the volume of a gas is directly proportional to its temperature under constant pressure demonstrates______________.
A graph of Boyle's Law shows the relationship between __________________.
volume and pressure of a gas.
T or F: Particles in a liquid move around just as freely as particles in a solid.
False, more freely than
T or F: In a rigid container, as the temperature of gas decreases, the pressure of gas will decrease.
T or F: The type of graph tht results when the volume of a gas is measured as its pressure is changed (at constant temperature) is a straight line.
False, curved line
T or F: Pieces of dry ice (solid carbon dioxide) become smaller through the process of condensation.
T or F: At its boiling temperature, the particles of a liquid are moving so slowly that they begin to form regular patterns.
False, freezing temperature
T or F: In crystalline solids, the particles are not arranged in a regular pattern.
False, amorphous solids
When a graph of two variables shows a straight line passing through the point (0,0) the two variables are __________ proportional to each other.
A shrinking puddle is an example of __________, or vaporization that takes place only on the surface of a liquid.
Solids that have particles arranged in a regular, repeating pattern are know as ______________ solids.
In a ___________, the particles are packed closely together, but they can move past each other freely.
______________ occurs when particles in a gas lose enoug thermal energy to form a liquid.
______________ is a measure of the average energy of motion of the particlesof a substance.
When the temperature of a gas in a balloon increases, the volume of the balloon will ____________.
The graph of Boyle's law shows that as the volume of a gas at constant temperature is changed, its pressure varies ______________ with the volume.
See diagram: In which state are the particles least able to move? Explain.
State B becasue the particles are connected together.
See diagram: Which of the three states represents a liquid? How do you know?
State A because the particles are able to move around but are still held together a little bit.
See diagram: Which of the three states would you expect to be most affected by the shape of its container? Explain.
State C because gases have no definite shape so it takes the shape of the container.
See diagram: Classify each of the three states as gas, liquid, or solid.
State B- liquid
State A- solid
State C- Gas
