The physical behavior of gas can be described completely by four variables: pressure (P), volume (V), temperature (T), and amount of substance (n).

Pressure, volume, temperature, and amount of gas are interdependent. Any one of them can be determined by measuring the other three.

Ideal gas exhibits simple linear relationships among pressure, volume, temperature, and amount. The higher the temperature and the smaller amount, the closer this real gas to the ideal.

Boyle’s law: at constant temperature, the volume occupied by a fixed amount of gas is inversely proportional to the applied (external) pressure.

Key mathematical points: The product of corresponding P and V values is a constant: PV = constant or P 1 V 1 =P 2 V 2 V is inversely proportional to P V is directly proportional to 1/P: V~1/P

The product of corresponding P and V values is a constant: PV = constant or P 1 V 1 =P 2 V 2

V is inversely proportional to P

V is directly proportional to 1/P: V~1/P

Important relationships: Amonton’s law. At constant volume, the pressure exerted by a fixed amount of gas is directly proportional to the absolute temperature: P~T or P/T=constant or P 1 /T 1 =P 2 /T 2 or P=constant x T The combined gas law : V~(T/P) or PV/T=constant or P 1 V 1 /T 1 =P 2 V 2 /T 2

Amonton’s law. At constant volume, the pressure exerted by a fixed amount of gas is directly proportional to the absolute temperature: P~T or P/T=constant or P 1 /T 1 =P 2 /T 2 or P=constant x T

The combined gas law : V~(T/P) or PV/T=constant or P 1 V 1 /T 1 =P 2 V 2 /T 2

A sample problem on volume-temperature relationship.

Given: A 58 L sample of dry air is cooled from 127°C to -23°C while the pressure is maintained at 2.85 atm. What is the final volume? Plan: As the pressure is constant, apply Charles’s law: V 1 /T 1 =V 2 /T 2 . Do not forget to convert temperatures into kelvins. Solution: V 2 =V 1 T 2 /T 1 V 2 =58L*250K/400K=36L - Looks realistic.
