properties of a gas

A gas A gas is defined as a substance that has no well defined boundaries but diffuses rapidly to fill the container in which it is placed
Kelvin Scale Temperature can be converted into the kelvin scale by adding 273 to the celsius
1 kPa 1000 pa
1 litre 1000 cm
Standard temperature and pressure 273K & 1x10(5) Pa
Boyles Law States that, at constant temperature, the volume of a fixed mass of gas is inversely proportional to its pressure
Charles' Law States that, at constant pressure the volume of a fixed mass of gas is directly proportional to to its temperature measured on the Kelvin Scale
Combined gas law equation P1_V1 = P2_V2 T1 T2
Reaction between gases The volumes of the reacting gases are in the ratio of small whole numbers provided the volumes are measured at the same temperature and pressure
Avogadro's Law States that equal volumes of gases contain equal numbers of molecules, under the same conditions of temperature and pressure
Ideal gases Gases that obey all the assumptions of the kinetic theory of gases under all conditions of temperature and pressure
Real Gases They differ from ideal gases because 1) Forces of attraction and repulsion between molecules and 2) the volume of the molecules is not negligible
The equation of state for an ideal gas PV=nRT
convert Volume in cubic metres - volume in litres litres X 10(-3)
Convert cubic metres to cm cm X 10(-6)
