The characteristics of gases are described in terms of following four parameters

  • Mass
  • Volume
  • Pressure
  • Temperature

(i) Mass (m):
The mass of the gas is related to the number of moles as
n = w/M
Where  n = number of moles
w = mass of gas in grams
M = molecular mass of the gas  
(ii) Volume (V): 
Since gases occupy the entire space available to them, therefore the gas volume means the
volume of the container in which the gas is enclosed.
Units of Volume: Volume is generally expressed in litre (L), cm3 & dm3
1m= 103 litre = 10dm3 = 106 cm3.
(iii) Pressure:
Pressure of the gas is due to its collisions with walls of its container i.e. the force exerted by the gas per unit area on the walls of the container is equal to its pressure.
 Notes | EduRev
Pressure is exerted by a gas due to kinetic energy of its molecules.
As temperature increases, the kinetic energy of molecules increases, which results in increase in pressure of the gas. So, pressure of any gas is directly proportional to its temperature.
 Notes | EduRev
Units of Pressure: 
The pressure of a gas is expressed in atm, Pa, Nm–2, bar and lb/In2 (psi).
760 mm = 1 atm = 10132.5 KP­a = 101325 Pa = 101325 Nm–2
760 mm of Hg = 1.01325 bar = 1013.25 milli bar = 14.7 lb/2n2 (psi)
(iv) Temperature (T):
Temperature is defined as the degree of hotness. The SI unit of temperature is Kelvin.  oC and oF are the two other units used for measuring temperature. On the Celsius scale water freezes at 0°C and boils at 100°C where as in the Kelvin scale water freezes at 273 K and boils at 373 K.  
K = oC + 273.5
F = (9/5) oC + 32

(i) Boyle’s Law:
"At constant temperature, the pressure of a fixed amount (i.e., number of moles n) of gas varies inversely with its volume".
 Notes | EduRev
 Notes | EduRev
Graphical Representation of Boyle’s Law:

A plot of P versus 1/V at constant temperature for a fixed mass of gas would be a straight line passing through the origin.
A plot of P versus V at constant temperature for a fixed mass of a gas would be a rectangular hyperbola.
 Notes | EduRev

A plot of P (or V ) versus PV at constant temperature for a fixed mass of a gas is a straight line parallel to the PV axis.
 Notes | EduRev(ii) Charles’ Law:
"At constant pressure, the volume of a given mass of a gas is directly proportional to its absolute temperature”
 Notes | EduRev
 Notes | EduRev

Graphical Representation of Charles’s Law :
(i) For a definite mass of the gas a plot of V vs T (oK) at constant pressure is a straight line passing through the origin.

 Notes | EduRev

(ii) A plot of V vs t (oC) at constant pressure is a straight line cutting the temperature axis at -273 oC
 Notes | EduRev
(iii) Combined Gas Law:- 
This law states that “at constant volume, the pressure of a given mass of a gas is directly proportional to its absolute temperature”.
the combination of Boyle’s Law and Charles’ Law:

4. Gay Lussac’s Law:
 Notes | EduRev
 Notes | EduRev
P = Pressure of Gas
T= Absolute Temperature
If the pressure and temperature of a gas changes from P1 & Tto P2 & T2 , volume remaining constant , we have

 Notes | EduRev
P= Pressure of gas at t oC
Po = Pressure of gas at 0 oC
t = Temperature in oC.
Graphical Representation of Gay-Lussac’s Law Notes | EduRev5. Avogadro Law:
“Samples of different gases which contain the same number of molecules (any complexity, size, shape) occupy the same volume at the same temperature and pressure”.
 Notes | EduRevIt follows from Avogadro’s hypothesis that Vαn (when T and P are constant).
 Notes | EduRev
6. Ideal Gas Equation: 
Ideal gas obey all the three laws i.e. Boyle’s, Charles’s, and Avogadro‘s law strictly.
 Notes | EduRevpv = nRT
where R is the constant of proportionality or universal gas constant    
The value of R was found out to be  
R = 8.314 J mol–1 K–1  
R = 0.0821 litre atm K–1 mol–1  
R = 2 cal K–1 mol–1  
Ideal gas equation is also known as equation of state.
7. Dalton’s law of partial pressures: 
The total pressure of mixture of non-reactive gases at constant temperature and pressure is equal to the sum of the individual partial pressures of the gases.
ptotal  = p1 +p2+p3+p4
p1 = xptotal
p= x2 ptotal
p3 = x3 ptotal 
Aqueous tension:
Pressure exerted by saturated water vapour.
pdry gas = pTotal –Aqueous Tension

Gas Eudiometry:

Absorbing Reagent used
 Turpentine oil
Alkaline pyrogallol
FeSO4 solution
Alkali solution (NaOH, KOH, Ca(OH)2, HOCH2CH2NH2, etc.)
Acid solution or CuSO4 solution

Equation for combustion of hydrocarbons:
CxHy + (x + y/4) O2  → xCO2 + y/2  H2O

Kinetic molecular theory of gases:

  • Gases are made of large number of identical particles (atoms or molecules), which are very small and perfectly hard spheres.
  • The actual volume of the molecules is negligible as compare to the space between them and hence they are considered as the point  masses.
  • Interaction between the particles is negligible.
  • Particles of a gas are always in constant and random motion and the collision between them is perfectly elastic.
  • The average kinetic energy of the particles of a gas is directly proportional to the absolute temperature.
  • Pressure of the gas is due to the collision between gas molecules and walls of the container.

Root Mean Square Velocity:

Maxwell proposed the term Urms as the square root of means of square of all such velocities.
 Notes | EduRev
 Notes | EduRev

Most probable velocity:

It is the velocity which is possessed by maximum no. of molecules.

As per kinetic equation
 Notes | EduRev
For 1 mole m × n = Molecular Mass (M)
 Notes | EduRev
 Notes | EduRev
Where k is the Boltzmann constant (k = R / N)

(i) Diffusion: ability of a gas to spread and occupy the whole available volume irrespective of other gases present in the container
(ii) Effusion: process by which a gas escapes from one chamber of a vessel through a small opening or an orifice
 Notes | EduRev
r ∝ 1 / √d
where r is the rate of diffusion and d is the density of the gas.  
Now, if there are two gases A and B having r1 and r2 as their rates of diffusion and dand d2 their densities respectively. Then

The rate of diffusion (r) of a gas at constant temperature is directly preoperational to its pressure
 Notes | EduRev

For ideal gas,
Compressibility factor i.e. Z = PV/nRT =1
For non-Ideal gas, Z ≠1
Thus for non-ideal gas,Z can be < 1 or > 1
When Z < 1, it is a negative deviation. It shows that the gas is more compressible than expected from ideal behaviour.
When Z > 1, it is a positive deviation. It shows that the gas is less compressible than expected from ideal behaviour.
(i) Causes of deviation from ideal behaviour:
The volume occupied by gas molecules is negligibly small as compared to the volume occupied by the gas.
The forces of attraction between gas molecules are negligible.
(ii) Van der waals Equation:
 Notes | EduRev
a and b are van der waals constants.
At low pressures:
PV = RT – a/V  
This accounts for the dip in PV vs P isotherm at low pressure
 Notes | EduRev
 Notes | EduReva/V2  may be neglected in comparison with P. The Vander Waals equation becomes
PV = RT + Pb
This accounts for the rising parts of the PV vs P isotherm at high pressures
 Notes | EduRevBoyle’s Temperature (Tb): temperature at which real gas obeys the gas laws over a wide range of pressure.
Tb = a / Rb = 1/2 T1


  • Critical temperature (Tc):- temperature at which a gas liquefies. T= 8a / 27Rb
  • Critical Volume: (Vc:- volume of one mole of a gas at critical temperature. Vc = 3b 
  • Critical pressure (pc):- pressure of A gas at its critical temperature.  P= a/27b2
  • Molar heat capacity of ideal gases:-the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of 1 mole of a gas trough 10C.

CP - CV = R &
Poisson's ratio (γ) = CP/CV
For monatomic gas Cp = 5 cal and Cv =3 cal
γ = 5/3 = 1.67            
For diatomic gas Cp = 7 cal and Cv = 5 cal
γ =7/5 = 1.4
For polyatomic gas Cp = 8 cal and Cv= cal
γ   = 8/6 = 1.33
Also Cp = Cpm,
Where, Cp and Care specific heat and m, is molecular weight.

Surface Tension (γ):- It is the force acting at right angles to the surface along one centimeter length of the surface.
Surface tension (γ) = Work done / Change in area
Units: CGS: dcm-1
SI:  Nm-1
 Notes | EduRevThe surface of the liquid tends to contract to the smallest possible area for a given volume of the liquid i.e. spherical shape.
Surface Tension of liquid decreases with increase of temperature and becomes zero at its critical temperature.
Surface Tension in everyday life:

  • Cleansing action of soap and detergents.
  • Efficacy of tooth pastes, mouth washes and nasal jellies.

It is the force of friction which one part of the liquid offers to another part of the liquid.
Coefficient of viscosity: is the force per unit area required to maintain unit difference of velocity between two parallel layers in the liquid one unit apart.
Units:CGS: dscm-1
S.I:  Nsm-1
Viscosity of liquid decreases with increase in temperature.
