Properties of Gases
 Gases are compressible
 They possess low density
 They do not have a definite shape but assume the shape and volume of their container
 Their intermolecular distance is large and has negligible intermolecular forces of attraction.
Pressure of Gas
The pressure exerted by the gas is due to the collision of its molecules on the walls of the container.
Pressure = Force / Area
(P = F /A)
The SI unit of pressure is Pascal (Pa)
1 Pa = 1N/m2
Atmospheric pressure
This is the pressure exerted by the gas molecules of the air in the atmosphere
1 atm = 760 mm of Hg = 760 torr =101325 Pa = 14.7psi
Atmospheric pressure is measured using the instrument ‘Barometer’
A ‘Manometer’ is used to measure the pressure of gases other than atmosphere.
The Gas Laws
1. Boyle’s Law (Relationship between Pressure and Volume of gas)
This law states that the pressure (P) of a given mass of gas multiplied by its volume (V) is a
constant at a constant temperature.
PV = constant
P1V1 = P2V2 (at a constant temperature)
2. Charles’s Law (Relationship between Temperature and Volume)
This law states that the volume (V) of a given mass of gas is directly proportional to its
temperature (T) in Kelvin scale, at a constant Pressure (P). (As the Temperature increases
Volume of the gas increases at constant P)
V = (constant) x T
= Constant
V1 = V2
(at constant P)
3. Gay Lussac’s Law (Relationship between Pressure and Temperature)
This law states that the pressure (P) of a gas is directly proportional to its temperature (T) in
Kelvin scale at a constant volume (V). (As the Temperature increases, the pressure of the gas
increases at constant V)
P = (constant) x T
or P1 = P2
(at constant V)
4. Avogadro’s Law (Relationship between Volume and number of moles or molecules)
This law states that equal volumes (V) of all gases at the similar conditions of temperature
(T) and pressure (P) contain equal number of molecules (N).
or V  n
(Where ‘n’ is the number of moles of the gas)
V = (constant) x n
V1 = V2 = constant
The combined gas Law
By combining Boyle’s Law and Gay Lussac’s Law, we get
PV = constant
P1V1 = P2V2
This is the combined gas law.
The Ideal Gas Equation
By combining the Boyle’s law, Charles law and Avogadro’s law, we get the Ideal Gas
(PV) /(nT) = constant
PV = nRT
or n = PV/RT
(R = universal gas constant)
Value of R
R = PV/nT
R = (1 atm) x (22.4 L)
(1 mol) x (273 K)
= 0.0821 L atm mol-1 K-1
(At STP, T = 273K and P = 760mm of Hg or 1 atm. The volume of 1 mole of a gas at STP is
22.4 L)

Dalton’s Law of Partial Pressures
Total pressure of a mixture of gases is equal to the sum of the individual pressures of all the
gases in the mixture. The individual pressures are called partial pressure.
Ptotal = PA + PB
Partial pressure of Gas A (PA ) = nART / V
Partial pressure of Gas B (PB ) = nBRT / V
If the total pressure of the mixture were given, then the partial pressure of gas A & B would
PA = Pmix x mole fraction of A
PB = Pmix x mole fraction of B
Mole fraction of a component in the mixture = Number of moles of that component
Total Number of moles
Kinetic molecular Theory of Gases
1. A gas is composed of very minute particles called molecules.
2. The molecules are in a state of constant motion in random directions. During their
movement they collide with each other and also with the walls of the container.
3. The molecules are perfectly elastic and the collisions do not result in any loss of energy.
4. There are no intermolecular forces of attraction between molecules.
5. The volume occupied by a molecule is negligible when compared with the total volume
of the gas.
6. The average kinetic energy of the molecules is directly proportional to the temperature
of the gas in Kelvin.
According to Kinetic theory of gases,
PV = 1 / 3 mNu2
