Quiz yourself by thinking what should be in each of the black spaces below before clicking on it to display the answer.

diffusion   spontaneous mixing of the particles of two substances caused by their random motion  
effusion   a process by which gas particles pass through a tiny opening  
elastic collision   a collision between gas particles and between gas particles and container walls in which there is no net loss of kinetic energy  
fluid   a substance that can flow and therefore take the shape of its container, a liquid or a gas  
ideal gas   an imaginary gas that perfectly fits all the assumptions of the kinetic molecular theory  
kinetic-molecular theory   a theory based on the idea that particles of matter are always in motion  
real gas   a gas that does not behave completely according to the assumption os the kinetic molecular theory  
atmosphere of pressure (atm)   exactly equivalent to 760 mm Hg  
barometer   a device used to measure atmospheric pressure  
millimeter of mercury (mm of Hg)   a common use of pressure  
newton   the SI unit for force, the force that will increase the speed of a one kilogram mass by one meter per second each second it is applied  
pascal   the pressure exerted by a force of one newton acting on an are of one square meter  
kilopascal   equal to 1.013 x 10 ^5  
pressure   the force per unit area on a surface  
standard temperature and pressure (STP)   the agreed upon standard conditions of exactly 1 atm pressure and 0 degrees cecius  
standard ambient temperature and pressure (SATP)   equal to one bar  
torr   equal to 1 mm Hg  
absolute zero   the temperature -273.15 degree Celsius given a value of 0 in the kelvin scale  
Kelvin   the temperature at which all thermal motion ceases  
Boyle’s Law   the volume of a fixed mass of gas varies inversely with pressure at constant temperature  
Charles’s Law   the volume of a fixed mass of gas at constant pressure varies directly with the kelvin temperature  
Combined gas law   the relationship between the pressure, volume, and temperature of a fixed amount of gas  
Dalton’s Law of partial pressure   the total pressure of a mixture of gases is equal to the sum of the partial pressures of the component gases  
Gay-Lusscac’s Law   the pressure of a fixed mass of gas at constant volume varies directly with the kelvin temperature  
Ideal gas law   the mathmatical relationship of pressure volume temperature and the number of moles of a gas  
Partial pressure   the pressure of each gas in a mixture  
Avogadro’s Law   equal volumes of gases at the same temperature and pressure contain equal numbers of molecules  
van der Waals equation   equation that relates the behavior of real gases to those of ideal gases  
Gas Constant
