Unit 14: Gases
Key Learning Targets
Define gas pressure and know the units for its measurement.
Convert between different units of pressure, volume, temperature and amount of gas.
State the following Gas Laws and apply them in calculations:
a) Boyle’s: P1V1 = P2V2
b) Charles’: V1/T1 = V2/T2
c) Gay-Lussac’s’: P1/T1 = P2/T2
d) Combined: P1V1/T1 = P2V2/T2
e) Ideal: PV = nRT
Define STP as “standard temperature and pressure” and know its values.
Discuss Kinetic Molecular Theory and how it relates to the behavior of gases.
Differentiate between an ideal and a real gas.
Solve stoichiometric problems that involve gas volumes.
