Title: Molar Volume

Molar Volume
  • Chem 11 Adv

Gas Pressure
  • Pressure is defined as the force exerted on an
    object per unit of surface area (P F/A)
  • The pressure of a gas is determined by the motion
    of its particles
  • Gases take the up the space of their container
  • Particles move randomly through out the space of
    the container colliding with each other and the
    sides of the container, give a net equal pressure
    through out

Gas Pressure
STP (review)
  • Scientists have designated standard conditions
    which allow them to compare different gas volumes
  • Temperature 0 degrees Celsius or 273 Kelvin
    (freezing point of water)
  • Pressure 101.3 kPa (average atmospheric
    pressure at sea level) or 1 atm

Joseph Louis Gay-Lussac
  • Measured the volume of gases before and after

Law of Combining Volumes
  • When gases react, the volume of reactants and
    products, measure at equal temperature and
    pressure are always in whole number ratios

Along came Avogadro.
  • He realized that the number of molecules of gas
    present corresponded to the volume ratios
  • Hypothesis Equal volumes of gas at the same
    temp and press contain the same number of

Standard Molar Volume
  • Molar volume of a gas is the space occupied by
    one mole of gas at STP
  • Molar volume at STP is 22.4L/mol (ideal gases)
  • Table examples of real gases, still very close!

Mole to Mole In class Assignment
  • The average human requires 120.0 grams of glucose
    per day. How many grams of CO2 (in the
    photosynthesis reaction) are required for this
    amount of glucose? The photosynthetic reaction
    is 6 CO2 6 H2O ---gt C6H12O6 6 O2
  • Given the following equation
  • 8 Fe S8 ---gt 8 FeS
  • What mass of iron is needed to react with 16.0
    grams of sulfur?
  • How many grams of FeS are produced?
