Introduction
• Welcome!
• This interactive lesson will introduce three ways
of predicting the behavior of gases Boyles Law,
Charles Law, and the Ideal Gas Law. Never heard
of them? Dont worry thats the purpose of this
lesson!

Properties of Gases
• You can predict the behavior of gases based on
the following properties

Pressure
Volume
Amount (moles)
Temperature
Lets review each of these briefly

Pressure
Pressure is defined as the force the gas exerts
on a given area of the container in which it is
contained. The SI unit for pressure is the
Pascal, Pa.
• If youve ever inflated a tire, youve probably
made a pressure measurement in pounds (force) per
square inch (area).

Volume
Volume is the three-dimensional space inside the
container holding the gas. The SI unit for
volume is the cubic meter, m3. A more common and
convenient unit is the liter, L.
Think of a 2-liter bottle of soda to get an idea
of how big a liter is. (OK, how big two of them
are)

Amount (moles)
Amount of substance is tricky. As weve already
learned, the SI unit for amount of substance is
the mole, mol. Since we cant count molecules,
we can convert measured mass (in kg) to the
number of moles, n, using the molecular or
formula weight of the gas.
By definition, one mole of a substance contains
approximately 6.022 x 1023 particles of the
substance. You can understand why we use mass
and moles!

Temperature
Temperature is the measurement of heator how
fast the particles are moving. Gases, at room
temperature, have a lower boiling point than
things that are liquid or solid at the same
temperature. Remember Not all substance freeze,
melt or evaporate at the same temperature.
Water will freeze at zero degrees Celsius.
However Alcohol will not freeze at this
temperature.

How do they all relate?
• Some relationships of gases may be easy to
predict. Some are more subtle. Now that we
understand the factors that affect the behavior
of gases, we will study how those factors
interact.

Lesson 2 Boyles Law
• This lesson introduces Boyles Law, which
describes the relationship between pressure and
volume of gases.

NEXT
20
Boyles Law
• This law is named for Charles Boyle, who studied
the relationship between pressure, p, and volume,
V, in the mid-1600s.
• Boyle determined that for the same amount of a
gas at constant temperature, results in an
inverse relationship when one goes up, the
other comes down.

What does Boyles Law mean?
Suppose you have a cylinder with a piston in the
top so you can change the volume. The cylinder
has a gauge to measure pressure, is contained so
the amount of gas is constant, and can be
maintained at a constant temperature. A decrease
in volume will result in increased pressure. Hard
to picture? Lets fix that!

22
Boyles Law at Work
Doubling the pressure reduces the volume by half.
Conversely, when the volume doubles, the
pressure decreases by half.

Lesson 3 Charles Law
• This lesson introduces Charles Law, which
describes the relationship between volume and
temperature of gases.

NEXT
25
Charles Law
• This law is named for Jacques Charles, who
studied the relationship volume, V, and
temperature, T, around the turn of the 19th
century.
• This defines a direct relationship With the
same amount of gas he found that as the volume
increases the temperature also increases. If the
temperature decreases than the volume also
decreases.

What does Charles Law mean?
Suppose you have that same cylinder with a piston
in the top allowing volume to change, and a
heating/cooling element allowing for changing
temperature. The force on the piston head is
constant to maintain pressure, and the cylinder
is contained so the amount of gas is constant. An
increase in temperature results in increased
volume. Hard to picture? Lets fix it (again)!

Charles Law at Work
As the temperature increases, the volume
increases. Conversely, when the temperature
decreases, volume decreases.
