GASEOUS STATE
Measurable properties of gases :

1. Mass :
Def. The gases do possess mass. The mass of gas is generally used in the form of number of moles
which is related as :

2. Volume :
Def. Volume of gas is nothing but volume of the container in which it is present. Relation between
different units of volume
1 m3 = 103 dm3 = 103 litre =106 cm3 = 106 ml = 109 mm3.

3. Temperature :
Def. Degree of hotness or coldness of a body is measured by temperature
C K  273 F  32
100 = 100
=
180
C – Celcius scale, K – Kelvin scale, F – Fahrenheit scale

Note : In all the problems of gaseous state (i.e. in all gas law equations), temperature must be
expressed in kelvin scale. i.e. , t °C + 273 = TK

4. Pressure :
Def. Force acting per unit area

P=
F
A
Units :
CGS : dyne/cm 2
MKS : Newton/m 2 (1N/m 2 = 1Pa)
Relation : 1 N/m = 10 dyne/cm 2

Units of pressure :
1 atm = 76 cm of Hg
= 760 mm of Hg
= 760 torr
= 1.01325×105 N/m 2
= 101.325 kPa

MEASUREMENT OF PRESSURE :
Barometer : A barometer is an instrument that is used for the measurement of pressure.The construction of
the barometer is as follows

## Cross sectional view of the capillary column

(‘h’ is the height to which mercury has risen in the capillary)
or, Patm = gh

Normal atmospheric pressure which we call 1 atmosphere (1 atm), is defined as the pressure exerted by the
atmosphere at mean sea level. It comes out to be 760 mm of Hg = 76 cm of Hg. (at mean sea level the
reading shown by the barometer is 76 cm of Hg)
1 atm = (13.6 × 103) × 9.8 × 0.76 = 1.013 × 105 Pascal.
1 torr = 1 mm of Hg.
1 bar = 105 N/m2 (Pa)

Charles’ Law :
It relates the volume and temperature of a given mass of a gas at constant pressure.

For each degree change of temperature, the volume of a sample of a gas changes by the fraction 1
273
of its volume at 0 °C.
Vt V0 V = constant , if pressure is kept constant

Calculation of pay load : Pay load is defined as the maximum weight that can be lifted by a gas filled
balloon.
Buoyancy

balloon

M
For maximum weight that can be lifted, applying force balance
Fbuoyancy = Mballoon × g + Mpay load × g
 air v.g. = gas v.g + Mg + mg.
mass of balloon = m net force on
volume of balloon = v balloon = 0
density of air = air (at equilibrium / when balloon is incoming
density of gas inside the with constant speed)
balloon = gas

Gay-lussac’s law : For a fixed amount of gas at constant volume, pressure of the gas is directly
proportional to temperature of the gas on absolute scale of temperature.
PT
P
= constant  dependent on amount and volume of gas
T
P1 P2
  temperature on absolute scale originally, the law was developed on the centigrade
T1 T2
scale, where it was found that pressure is a linear function of temperature P = P0 + bt where ‘b’ is a constant
and P0 is pressure at zero degree centigrade.

Avogadro’s Hypothesis : For similar values of pressure & temperature equal number of molecules of
different gases will occupy equal volume.
N1  V (volume of N1 molecules at P & T of one gas)
N1  V (volume of N1 molecules at P & T of second gas)
 Molar volume & volume occupied by one mole of each and every gas under similar conditions will be equal.

One mole of any gas or a combination of gases occupies 22.413996 L of volume at STP.
The previous standard is still often used, and applies to all chemistry data more than decade old, in this
definition Standard Temperature and Pressure STP denotes the same temperature of 0°C (273.15K), but
a slightly higher pressure of 1 atm (101.325 kPa).

Standard Ambient Temperature and Pressure (SATP), conditions are also used in some scientific works.
SATP conditions means 298.15 K and 1 bar (i.e. exactly 105 Pa) At SATP (1 bar and 298.15 K), the molar
volume of an ideal gas is 24.789 L mol–1

Ideal Gas Equation : Combining all these gas laws , a simple equation can be derived at, which
relates P , V , n and T for a gas
PV = nRT (for n moles of gas)
P1 V1 P2 V2
 T1 = T2 (Combined gas law)

## Relation between Molecular Mass and Gas Densities :

w
(A) Actual density : For an ideal gas PV = nRT or PV  RT , where w = mass of the gas in gms
M
and M = Molecular wt. in gms.

Dalton’s Law of Partial Pressures : The total pressure of a mixture of non-reacting gases is
equal to the sum of their partial pressures.

## Graham’s Law of Diffusion/Effusion :

Diffusion : Net spontaneous flow of gaseous molecules from region of high concentration (higher partial
pressure) to the region of lower concentration or lower partial pressure

Graham’s Law : “Under similar conditions of pressure (partial pressure) the rate of diffusion of different
gases is inversely proportional to square root of the density of different gases.”

Real Gases :
 Real gases do not obey the ideal gas laws exactly under all conditions of temperature and pressure.
 Real gases deviates from ideal behaviour because
 Real gas molecules have a finite volume.
{since on liquefaction real gases occupy a finite volume}
 Inter molecular attractive forces between real gas molecules is not zero.
{Real gases can be converted into liquid where as ideal gases cant be}
 Deviation of real gases from ideal behaviour can be measured by using compresibility factor : (Z)

If Z > 1, then gas is more difficult to compress as compared to an ideal gas.

 For H2 or He a ~ 0 because molecules are smaller in size or vander Wall's forces will be very weak, these are
non polar so no dipole-dipole interactions are present in the actions.

## Critical constant of a gas :

TC or critical temp : Temperature above which a gas can not be liquified
PC or critical pressure : Minimum pressure which must be applied at critical temperature to convert the gas
into liquid.

nature.

## Vapour pressure is independent of amount of liquid & surface area of liquid.

Vapour pressure of the liquid is independent of pressure of any gas in the container,
Ptotal = Pgas + Pwater vapour

Eudiometry : The analysis of gaseous mixtures is called eudiometry. The gases are identified by absorbing
them in specified and specific reagents.

##  Liquids and solutions can absorb gases.

 If a hydrocarbon is burnt, gases liberated will be CO2 & H2O. [H2O is seperated out by cooling the
mixture & CO2 by absorption by aqueous KOH]

 If organic compound contains S or P, then these are converted into SO2 & P4O10 by burning the organic
compound.

##  If nitrogen is present, then it is converted into N2.

[The only exception : if organic compound contains – NO2 group then NO2 is liberated]

 If mixture contains N2 gas & this is exploded with O2 gas, do not assume any oxide formation unless
specified.

##  Ozone is absorbed in turpentine oil and oxygen in alkaline pyragallol.

 Vm real 
is the universal gas constant. Such a relation can also be expressed as Z =   (where V

are the molar volume for ideal and real gas respectively). Gas corresponding Z > 1 have repulsive tendencies
among constituent particles due to their size factor, whereas those corresponding to Z < 1 have attractive
forces among constituent particles. As the pressure is lowered or temperature is increased the value of Z
approaches 1. (reaching the ideal behaviour)

1. Choose the conclusions which are appropriate for the observation stated.
Observation Conclusion
I. Z=1 I. The gas need not be showing the ideal behaviour
II. Z>1 II. On applying pressure the gas will respond by
increasing its volume
III. Z<1 III. The gas has the ability to be liquefied.
IV. Z  1 for low P IV. The gas is approaching the ideal behaviour.

real gas. The graph has two regions marked (I) and (II). Which of the following options is true.

## (A) Z < 1 in the region (II) (B) Z = 1 in the region (II)

(C) Z = 1 for the curve (D) Z approaches 1 as we move from region (II) to region (I)

Comprehension 2.
Real gases deviates from ideal behaviour because of the following two faulty assumptions of kinetic
theory:
(i) The actual volume occupied by molecules is negligible as compared to the total volume of the gas.
(ii) The forces of attraction and repulsion between molecules of the gas are negligible. The extent of
deviation of a real gas from ideal behaviour is expressed in terms of compressibility factor(z)
Hence suitable corrections were applied to the ideal gas equation. So that it can also explain the
behavior of real gases. The equation obtained by applying the two corrections to the usual gas equation
is known as Vander Waal equation.
1. Volume correction :
Corrected (ideal) volume = (V – nb)
where b is the effective volume of the molecules.
2. Pressure correction (Intermolecular attraction correction)
Corrected (ideal) pressure (P + P’)

9. One should clearly note the fact that on heating a gas in a vessel, there are the number of moles of gas
which go out, the volume of vessel remains constant.
Let initial no. of moles of gas at 300 K be ‘n’. On heating 3/5 moles of air escape out at temperature T.

22. If two gases have same value of 'b' but different values of 'a', then the gas having a larger value of 'a' will occupy
lesser volume. This is because the gas with a larger value of 'a' will have larger force of attraction and hence
lesser distance between its molecules.
