Gas Laws

Gas Laws: terms

For a given mass of gas at constant temperature, the volume of the gas varies inversely with pressure Boyle's Law
the volume of a fixed mass of gas is directly proportional to its Kelvin temperature if the pressure is kept constant Charles Law
the law that describes the relationship among the pressure, temperature, and volume of an enclosed gas Combined Gas Law
a measure of how much the volume of matter decreases under pressure Compressibility
at constant volume and temperature, the total pressure exerted by a mixture of gases is equal to the sum of the partial pressures of the component gases Dalton's Law of Partial Pressures
molecules tend to move toward areas of lower concentration until uniform without Diffusion
the process that occurs when a gas escapes through a tiny hole in its container Effusion
pressure of a gas is directly proportional to the Kelvin temperature if the volume is constant Gay Lussac's Law
the rate of effusion of a gas is inversely proportional to the square root of its molar mass Graham's Law of Effusion
R=8.31 x (LxkPa/Kxmol) Ideal Gas Constant
PV=nRT, which describes the behavior of ___ gases Ideal Gas Law
the contribution each gas in a mixture of gases makes to the total pressure Partial Pressure
