Properties of gases (5)

1. Have no shape or volume alone, but completely fill a container

2. Are highly compressible

3. Increase in pressure, volume, or both when heated

4. Decrease in volume when under pressure

5. Diffuse rapidly and mix with other gases

Boyle's Law

The volume of gas varies inversely with pressure

Atmospheric pressure at sea level

101 kPa = 1 atm

Boyle's law formula

P1 x V1 = P2 x V2

Charles' law formula

V1 x T2 = V2 x T1

Convert from °C to K

Add 273

Convert from K to °C

Subtract 273

Charles law, if the temp goes up...

The volume goes up

Combined gas law formulas

V1 x P1 x T2 = V2 x P2 x T1


V1 x P1 / T1 = V2 x P2 / T2

Pressure is always measured in:


Volume is always measured in:


Temperature is always measured in:
