Question 27.
A balloon filled with air at room temperature and cooled to a much lower temperalure can be used as a model for Charles’ law.
Charles’ law:

• V T at constant P and n (or) $$\frac {V}{T}$$ = Constant
• A balloon filled with air at room temperature and cooled to a much lower temperature. the size of the balloon is reduced. Because if the temperature of the gas decreases, the volume also decreases in a direct proportion.
• When temperature is reduced, the gas molecules inside in over slower due to decreased temperature and hence the volume decreases.

Question 28.
Name two items that can serve as a model for Gay Lussac’s law and explain.
Gay Lussac’s law:
1. P α T at constant volume (or) = $$\frac {V}{T}$$
2. Example – 1:
You fill the car type completely full of air on the hottest day of summer. The type cannot change it shape and volume. But when winter comes, the pressure inside the lyre is reduced and the shape is also reduced. This confirms that pressure and temperature are direct related to each other.
3. Example – 2:
The egg in the bottle experiment.

A glass bottle is taken, inside the bottle put some pieces of cotton with fire. Then place a boiled egg (shell removed) at the top of the bottle. The temperature inside the bottle increases from the fire, rising (he pressure. By scaling the bottle with egg, the fire goes on, dropping the temperature and pressure. This causes the egg to be sucked into the bottle.
P α T is proved (or) = $$\frac{P_{1}}{V_{1}}=\frac{P_{2}}{V_{2}}$$

Question 29.
Give the mathematical expression that relates gas volume and moles. Describe in words what the mathematical expression means.

1. The mathematical relationship betwêen the volume of a gas and the number of moles is V α n
2. $$\frac{V_{1}}{n_{1}}=\frac{V_{2}}{n_{2}}$$ = Constant
Where V1 and n1 are the volume and number of moles of a gas and V2 and n2 are the values of volume and number of moles of same gas at a different set of conditions.
3. If the volume of the gas increase then the number of moles of the gas also increases.
4. At a certain temperature and pressure, the volume of a gas is dirctly proportional to the number of the moles of the gas.

Question 30.
What are ideal gases? In what way real gases differ from ideal gases.

1. Ideal gases are the gases that obey gas laws or gas equation PV = nRT.
2. Real gases do not obey gas equation. PV = nRT.
3. The deviation of real gases from ideal behaviour is measure in terms of a ratio of PV to nRT. This is termed as compression factor (Z). Z = $$\frac {PV}{nRT}$$
4. For ideal gases Z = 1.
5. For real gases Z > 1 or Z < 1. For example, at high pressure real gases have Z >1 and at intermediate pressure Z < 1.
6.  Above the Boyle point Z> 1 for real gases and below the Boyle point, the real gases first show a decrease for Z, reaches a minimum and then increases with the increase in pressure.
7. So, it is clear that at low pressure and high temperature, the real gases behave as ideal gases.

Question 31.
Can a Van der Waals gas with a = 0 be liquefied? Explain.

• a = 0 for a Van der Waals gas i.e. for a real gas. Van der Waals constant a = 0. It cannot be liquefied.
• If a = 0, there is a very less interaction between the molecules of gas.
• ‘a’ is the measure of strength of Van der Waals force of attraction between the molecules of the gas.
• If a is equal to zero, the Van der Waals force of attraction is very less and the gas cannot be liquefied.

Question 32.
Suppose there ¡s a tiny sticky area on the wan of a container of gas. Molecules hitting this area stick there permanently. Is the pressure greater or less than on the ordinary area of walls?

• Molecules hitting the tiny sticky area on the wall of the container of gas moves faster as they get closer to adhesive surface, but this effect is not permanent.
• The pressure on the sticky wall is greater than on the ordinary area of walls.

Question 33.
Explain the following observations
(a) Aerated water bottles are kept under water during summer
(b) Liquid ammonia bottle is cooled before opening the seal
(c) The type of an automobile is inflated to slightly lesser pressure in summer than in winter
(d) The size of a weather balloon becomes larger and larger as it ascends up into larger altitude
(a) In aerated water bottles, CO2 gas is passed through the aqueous solution under pressure because the solubility of the gas in water is not very high. In summer, the solubility of the gas in water is likely to decrease because of the rise in temperature. Thus, in summer, more of gas will be present above the liquid surface in the glass bottle.

In case, the pressure of the gas becomes too high, the glass will not be able to withstand the pressure and the bottle may explode. To avoid this, the bottles are kept under water. As a result, the temperature is likely to decrease and the solubility of CO2 is likely to increase in aqueous solution resulting in decreased pressure.

(b) Liquid ammonia bottle contains the gas under very high pressure. If the bottle is opened as such, then the sudden decrease in pressure will lead to a large increase in volume of the gas. As a result, the gas will come out of the bottle all of a sudden with force. This will lead to the breakage of the bottle and also causes accident.

However, if the bottle is cooled under tap water for sometime, there will be a decrease in the volume of a gas to a large extent. if the seal is opened now, the gas will corne out of the bottle at a slower rate, reduces the chances of accident.

(c) The pressure of air is directly proportional to the temperature. Since the temperature is higher in summer than in higher, the pressure of the air in the tube of the lyre is likely to be quite high as compared to winter. It is quite likely that the tube may burst under high pressure in summer, Therefore, it is advisable to inflate the types to lesser pressure in summer than in winter.

(d) The volume of the gas is inversely proportional to pressure at a given temperature according to Boyle’s law. As the weather balloon ascends, the pressure tends to decrease. As a result, the volume of the gas inside the balloon or the size of the balloon is likely to increase.

Question 34.
Give suitable explanation for the following facts about gases.
(a) Gases don’t settle at the bottom of a container
(b) Gases diffuse through all the space available to them and
(c) Explain with an increase in temperature
(a) Gases by definition are the least dense state of matter. They have negligible intermolecular forces of attraction. So they are all free to roam separately. So the least dense gas particles will not sink at the bottom of a container.

(b) When a sample of a gas introduced to one part of a closed container, its molecules very quickly disperse throughout the container, this process by which molecules disperse in space in response to differences in concentration is called diffusion. For e.g., you can smell perfume in a room, because it difluses into the air totally inside the room.

(c) Diffusion is faster at higher temperature because the gas molecules have greater kinetic energy. Since heat increase the motion, then diffusion happens faster.

Question 35.
Suggest why there ¡s no hydrogen (H2) in our atmosphere. Why does the moon have no atmosphere?
1. Hydrogen is the lightest element thus when produced in free state, it rises above all the other gases to the top of the atmosphere, where it is open to cosmic storms and solar flares. There it literally leaks from the atmosphere to the empty space. Hydrogen easily gains velocity required to escape Earth’s magnetic field. Hydrogen is very reactive in nature. So it would have reacted with O2 , in its way to produce H2O. So majority portion of H2 reacts and very less amount of it present in the upper level of atmosphere and gains velocity to escape the atmosphere.

2. Moon has no atmosphere because the value of acceleration due to gravity ‘g’ on the surface of the moon is small. Therefore, the value of escape velocity on the surface of the moon is very small. The molecule of the atmospheric gases on the surface of the moon have thermal velocities greater than the escape velocity. That’s why all the molecules of gases have escaped and there is no atmosphere in the moon. The moon has insufficient gravity to retain an atmosphere. So we conclude that moon has no atmosphere.

Question 36.
Explain whether a gas approaches ideal behaviour or deviates from ideal behaviour if –
(a) it is compressed to a smaller volume at constant temperature
(b) the temperature is raised while keeping the volume constant
(c) more gas is introduced into the same volume and at the same temperature
(a) it a gas is compressed to a smaller volume at constant temperature, pressure is increased. At high pressure with a smaller volume, the gas deviates from ideal behaviour.

(b) If a gas temperature is raised keeping the volume constant, the pressure of the gas will increase. At high pressure, the gas deviates from ideal behaviour.

(c) if more gas is introduced into the same volume and at the same temperature, the number of moles are increasing. if the volume remains same, the increased number of moles collide with each other and kinetic energy increases and pressure decreases. At increased pressure, the gas deviates from ideal behaviour.

Question 37.
Which of the following gases would you expect to deviate from ¡deal behaviour under conditions of low temperature F Cl2, or Br2? Explain.
1. Bromine deviates (Br2) from the ideal gas maximum than Cl2 and F2. Because Br2 has biggest size (atomic weight 79.9) provides maximum attraction between bromine molecules which is directly proportional to the size of the molecule and the boiling point of the liquid made from those molecules.

2. Br2 deviates from ideal behaviour because it has largest atomic radii compared to Cl2 and F2. So it contains more electrons than other two, and the Vander Waals forces are stronger in Br2 than in Cl2 and F2. So Br2 deviates from ideal behaviour.

Question 38.
Distinguish between diffusion and effusion.
Diffusion:

• Diffusion is the spreading of molecules of a substance throughout a space or a second substance.
• Diffusion refers to the ability of the gases to mix with each other.
• E.g.. Spreading of something such as brown tea liquid spreading through the water in a tea cup.

Effusion:

• Effusion is the escape of gas molecules through a very small hole in a membrane into an evacuated area.
• Effusion is a ability of a gas to travel through a small pin-hole.
• E.g., pouring out something like the soap studs bubbling out from a bucket of water.

Question 39.
Aerosol cans carry clear warning of heating of the can. Why?
Aerosol cans carry clear warning of heating of the can. As the temperature rises, pressure in the can will increase and ambient temperatures about 120°F may lead to explosions. So aerosol cans should always be stored in dry areas where they will not be exposed to excessive temperatures. You should never throw an aerosol can onto a fire or leave it in the direct sunlight. even it is empty. This is because the pressure will build up so much that the can will burst. It is due to 2 reasons.

• The gas pressure increases.
• More of the liquefied propellant turns into a gas.

Question 40.
When the driver of an automobile applies brake, the passengers are pushed toward the front of the car but a helium balloon is pushed toward back of the car. Upon forward acceleration the passengers are pushed toward the front of the car. Why?
1. When the driver of an automobile applies brake, the passengers are pushed toward the front of the car due to inertia of the body, but a helium balloon pushed toward back of the car. Helium balloon responds to the air around it. Helium molecules are lighter than air of our atmosphere, and so they move toward back by gravity as a result of the accelerating frame.

2. Upon forward acceleration, the passengers arc pushed toward the front of the car, because the body in motion tends to stay in motion until acted upon by an outside force. Helium balloon is going to move opposite to this pseudo gravitational force.

Question 41.
Would it be easier to drink water with a straw on the top of Mount Everest?
It is difficult to drink water with a straw on the top of Mount Everest. This is because the reduced atmospheric pressure is less effective in pushing water into the straw at the top of the mountain because gravity falls off gradually with height. The air pressure falls off, there isn’t enough atmospheric pressure to push the water up in the straw all the way to the mouth.

Question 42.
Write the Van der Waals equation for a real gas. Explain the correction term for pressure and volume.
Van der Waals equation of state for real gases is –
$$\left(P+\frac{a n^{2}}{V^{2}}\right)(V-n b)$$ = nRT

Correction term for pressure:
$$\frac{\mathrm{an}^{2}}{\mathrm{V}^{2}}$$ is the pressure correction. It represents the intermolecular interaction that causes the non ideal behaviour.

Correction term for Volume:
V – nb is the volume correction. it is the effective volume occupied by real gas.

Question 43.
Derive the values of critical constants from the Van der Waals constants.
Derivation of critical constants from the Van der Waals constants:
Van der Waals equation is,
$$\left(P+\frac{a n^{2}}{V^{2}}\right)(V-n b)$$ = nRT for 1 mole
From this equation, the values of critical constant PCVC and TC arc derived in terms of a and b the Van der Waals constants.
$$\left(P+\frac{a n^{2}}{V^{2}}\right)(V – b)$$ = RT ………..(1)
On expanding the equestion (1)
P V + $$\frac {a}{V}$$ – pb – $$\frac{\mathrm{ab}}{\mathrm{V}^{2}}$$ – RT = 0 ………(2)
Multiplying eqestion (2) by $$\frac{V^{2}}{P}$$,

equation (3) is rearranged in the powers of V
V3 – $$\left[\frac{\mathrm{RT}}{\mathrm{P}}+\mathrm{b}\right]$$ V2 + $$\frac {aV}{P}$$ –
= 0 ………..(4)
The above equation (4) is an cubic equation of V, which can have three roots. At the critical point. all the three values of V are equal to the critical volume VC.
i.e. V = VC.
V – VC = O ……….(5)
(V – VC)3 = O ………(6)
(V3 – 3VCV2 + 3VC3V – VC3 = 0 ………(7)
As the equation (4) is identical with equation (7), comparing the ‘V’ ternis in (4) and (7),

Divide equation (11) by (10)

When equation (12) is substituted in (10)

substituting the values of Vc and Pc in equation (9)

Critical constant a and b can be calculated using Van der Waals Constant as follows:

Question 44.
Why do astronauts have to wear protective suits when they are on the surface of moon?
In space, there is no pressure, if we do wear a pressurised suit, our body will die. In space, we have to wear a pressurised suit, otherwise our body will continue to push out and blow up like a balloon. It would look cool, but we will be dead. So the astronauts in space must wear a pressurised suit (protective suits).

Question 45.
When ammonia combines with HCl, NH4 Cl is formed as white dense fumes. Why do more funies appear near HCl?

1. When ammonia combines with HCl, NH4 Cl is formed as white dense fumes. The reaction takes place in neutralization between a weak base and a strong acid.
2. The property of the gas is diffusion.
3. Diffusion of gases Ammonia and hydrogen chloride. Concentrated ammonia solution is placed on a pad in one end of a tube and concentrated HCl on the pad at the other. After about a minute, the gases diffuses far enough to meet and a ring of solid ammonium chloride is formed near the HCl end.

Samacheer Kalvi 11th Chemistry Gaseous State 2 – Mark Questions

Question 1.
Identify the elements that are in gaseous state under normal atmospheric conditions.

• Hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, fluorine and chlorine exist as gaseous diatomic molecules.
• Another form of oxygen namely ozone tr iatomic molecule exist as a gas at room temperature.
• Noble gases namely helium, neon, argon, krypton, xenon and radon are mono atomic gases.

Question 2.
Distinguish between a gas and a vapour.

• Gas : A substance that is normally in a gaseous state at ordinary temperature and pressure. .,e.g., Hydrogen.
• Vapou r: The gaseous form of any substance that is a liquid or solid at normal temperature and pressure. e.g., At 298 K and 1 atm, water exist as water vapour.

Question 3.
Define pressure. Give its units.

• Pressure is defined as the force exerted by a gas on unit area of the wall. Force F
• Pressure = $$\frac {Force}{Area}$$ = $$\frac {F}{a}$$
• The SI unit of pressure is Pascal (Pa)

Question 4.
Define atmospheric pressure. What is its value?

• The pressure exerted on a unit area of Earth by the colunm of air above it is called atmospheric pressure.
• The standard atmospheric pressure = 1 atm.
• 1 atm = 760 mm Hg.

Question 5.
Deep sea divers ascend slowly and breath continuously by time they reach the surface. Give reason.

• For every 10 m of depth, a diver experiences an additional 1 atm of pressure due to the weight of water surrounding him.
• At 20 m, the diver experiences a total pressure of 3 atm. So the most important rule in diving is never hold breath.
• Divers must ascend slowly and breath continuously allowing the regulator to bring the air pressure in their lungs to 1 atm by the time they reach the surface.

Question 6.
Most aeroplanes cabins are artificially pressurized. Why?
The pressure decreases with the increase in altitude because there are fewer molecules per unit volume of air. Above 9200 m (30,000 ft), for example, where most commercial aeroplanes fly, the pressure is so low that one could pass out for lack of oxygen. For this reason most aeroplanes cabins arc artificially pressurized.

Question 7.
What is the reason behind the cause of ear pain while climbing a mountain? How it can be rectified?

• When one ascends a mountain in a plain, the external pressure drops while the pressure within the air cavities remains the same. This creates an imbalance.
• The greater internal pressure forces the eardrum to bulge outward causing pain.
• With time and with the help of a yawn or two, the excess air within your ear’s cavities escapes thereby equalizing the internal and external pressure and relieving the pain.

Question 8.
State Charles’ law.
Charles’ law:
For a fixed mass of a gas constant pressure, the volume is directly proportional to temperature (K).
Mathematically V – T at constant P and n. (or) $$\frac {V}{T}$$ = Constant (or) $$\frac{V_{1}}{T_{1}}=\frac{V_{2}}{T_{2}}$$ = Constant

Question 9.
What are the applications of Charles’ law?

• A hot air inside the balloon rises because of its decreased density and causes the balloon to float  inside the balloon rises because of its decreased density and causes the balloon to float.
• If you take a helium balloon outside on a chilly day, the balloon will crumble. Once you get back into warm area, the balloon will return to its original shape. This is because, in accordance with Charles’ law, a gas like helium takes up more space when it is warm.

Question 10.
Equal volumes of all gases under the same conditions of temperature and pressure contain equal number of molecules. Mathematically V ∝ n
$$\frac{V_{1}}{n_{1}}=\frac{V_{2}}{n_{2}}$$ = Constant

Question 11.
Define Dalton’s law of partial pressure.
Dalton’s law of partial pressure:
It states that the total pressure of a mixture of gases is the sum of partial pressures of the gases present.
Ptotal = P1 + P2 + P3

Question 12.
What are the applications of Dalton’s law of partial pressure?
1. Physicians report the pressure of the patient’s gases in blood, analyzed by hospital lab, the values are reported as partial pressures.
Gas – Normal range
PCO2 35 – 45mm of Hg
PO2  80 – 100 mm of Hg

2. When gas is collected by downward displacement of water, the pressure of dry vapour collected is computed using Dalton’s law

Question 13.
How can you identify a heavy smoker with the help of Dalton’s law?
Physicians report the pressure of the patient’s gases in blood, analyzed by hospital lab. The values are reported as partial pressures.

A heavy smoker may be expected to have low O2 and huge CO2 partial pressures.

Question 14.
Define Graham’s law of diffusion.
Graham’s law of diffusion:
The rate of diffusion or effusion is inversely proportional to the square root of molecular mass of a gas through an orifice.
$$\frac{\mathrm{r}_{\mathrm{A}}}{\mathrm{r}_{\mathrm{B}}}=\sqrt{\frac{\mathrm{M}_{\mathrm{B}}}{\mathrm{M}_{\mathrm{A}}}}$$
rArB = rate of diffusion of gases A, B
MA, MB = Molecular mass of gases A, B

Question 15.
Helium diffuses more than air. Give reason.
Take two balloons, one is filled with air and another with helium. After one day, the helium balloon was shrunk, because helium being lighter diffuses out faster than the air

Question 16.
Explain about the applications of Graham’s law of diffusion.

• Graham’s law of diffusion is useful to determine the molecular mass of the gas if the rate of diffusion is known.
• Graham’s law forms the basis of the process of enriching the isotopes of U235 from other isotopes and also useful in isotopic separation of deuterium and protium.

Question 17.
What is compression factor?
The deviation of real gases from ideal behaviour is measured in terms of a ratio of PV to nRT.
This is termed as compression factor.
Compression factor = Z = $$\frac {PV}{nRT}$$
For ideal gases Z = 1 at all temperature and pressures.

Question 18.

1. Define critical temperature.
2. What is the critical temperature of CO2 gas?

1. The temperature below which a gas can be liquefied by application of pressure is known as critical temperature.
2. The critical temperature of CO2 gas is 303.98 K.

Question 19.

1. Define critical pressure.
2. What is the critical pressure of CO2 gas?

1. Critical temperature (PC) of a gas is defined as the minimum pressure required to liquefy.
2. The critical pressure of CO2 is 73 atm.

Question 20.
CO2 gas cannot be liquefied at room temperature. Give reason.
Only below the critical temperature, by the application of pressure, a gas can be liquefied. CO2 has critical temperature as 303.98 K. Room temperature means (30 + 273 K) 3O3 K. At room temperature, (critical temperature) even by applying large amount of pressure CO2 cannot be liquefied. Only below the critical temperature, it can be liquefied. At room temperature, CO2 remains as gas.

Question 21.
What is meant by Joule-Thomson effect?
The phenomenon of lowering of temperature when a gas is made to expand adiabatically form a region of high pressure into a region of low pressure is known as Joule-Thomson effect.

Question 22.
Define inversion temperature.
The temperature below which a gas obey Joule-Thomson effect is called inversion temperature (Ti).
Ti = $$\frac {2a}{Rb}$$

Question 23.
State and explain Boyle’s law. Represent the law graphically.
It states that, the pressure of a fixed mass of a gas is inversely proportional to its volume if temperature is kept constant.
P – $$\frac {1}{V}$$

P1v1 = P2V2
Graphical Representation:

Question 24.
Give an expression for the van der Waals equation. Give the significance of the constants used in the equation. What are their units?
$$\left(P+\frac{n^{2} a}{V^{2}}\right)$$ (V- nb) = nRT
Where n is the number of moles present and ‘a’’ b’ are known as van der Waals constants.

Significance of Van der Waals constants:
Van der Waals constant ‘a’:
‘a’ is related to the magnitude of the attractive forces among the molecules of a particular gas. Greater the value of’a’, more will be the attractive forces.
Unit of’a’ = L2 mol-2

Van der Waals constant ‘b’:
‘b’ determines the volume occupied by the gas molecules which depends upon size of molecule.
Unit of ‘b’ = L mol-1

Question 25.
What are ideal and real gases? Out of CO2 and NH3 gases, which is expected to show more deviation from the ideal gas behaviour?
Ideal gas:
A gas that follows Boyle’s law, Charles’ law and Avogadro law strictly is called an ideal gas. It is assumed that intermolecular forces are not present between the molecules of an ideal gas.

Real gases:
Gases which deviate from ideal gas behaviour are known as real gases. NH3 is expected to show more deviation. Since NH3 is polar in nature and it can be liquefied easily.

Samacheer Kalvi 11th Chemistry Gaseous State 3 – Mark Questions

Question 1.
Explain the graphical representation of Boyle’s law.
Boyle’s law states that at a given temperature the volume occupied by a fixed mass of a gas is inversely proportional to its pressure. V ∝ (T and n are fixed) .
If the pressure of the gas increases, volume will decrease and if the pressure of the gas decreases, the volume will increase. So PV = Constant.

Question 2.
What are the consequences of Boyle’s law?
1. if the volume of a fixed mass of a gas is reduced to half at constant temperature the gas pressure doubles.
2. Boyle’s law also helps to relate pressure to density.
P1V1 = P3V3 (Boyle’s law)
$$P_{1} \frac{m}{d_{1}}=P_{2} \frac{m}{d_{2}}$$
Where ‘m’ is the mass, d1 and d2 are the densities of gases at pressure P1 and P2. The density of the gas is directly proportional to pressure.

Question 3.
Explain Charles’ law with an experimental illustration.
Charles’ law states that for a fixed mass of a gas at constant pressure, the volume is directly proportional to temperature (K).
V ∝ T (or) $$\frac {V}{T}$$ = Constant

Volume vs Temperature:
If a balloon is moved from an ice water bath to a boiling water bath, the gas molecules inside move faster due to increased temperature and hence the volume increases.

Question 4.
Explain the graphical representation of Charles’ law.
1. Variation of volume of the gas sample with temperature at constant pressure.
2. Each line (iso bar) represents the variation of volume with temperature at certain pressure. The pressure increases from P1 to P5.
3.  i.e. P1<P2 < P3  <P4 < P5 . When these lines are extrapolated to zero volume, they intersect at a temperature of -273.15°C.
4. All gases are becoming liquids, if they are cooled to sufficiently low temperatures.
5. In other words, all gases occupy zero volume at absolute zero. So the volume of a gas can be measured over only a limited temperature range.

Question 5.
Explain graphicl representation of Gay Lussac’s law
Gay Lussac’s law
At constant volume, the pressure of a fixed mass of a gas is directly proportional to temperature.
P – T (or) $$\frac {P}{T}$$ = Constant
It can be graphically represented as shown here:
Lines in the pressure vs temperature graph are known as isochores (constant volume) of a gas.

Question 6.
Explain the graphical representation of Avogadro’s hypothesis.
Avogadros hypothesis states that equal volumes of all gases under the same conditions of temperature and pressure contain equaLnumbr of molecules.
V ∝ n
$$\frac{V_{1}}{n_{1}}=\frac{V_{2}}{n_{2}}$$ = Constant.
Where V1 and are the volume and number 10- of moles of a gas and V2 and n2 are the different set of values of volume and number of moles of the same gas.

A better example to iflustrate Avogadro’s Number of Moles (n) hypothesis is to observe the effect of pumping more gas into a balloon. When more gas molecules (particularly CO2) are passed, the volume of the balloon increases. The pressure and temperature stay constant as the balloon inflates, so the increase in volume is due to the increase in the quantity of gas inside the balloon.

Question 7.
Derive ideal gas equation.
The gaseous state is described completely using the following four variables T, P, V and n. Each gas law relates one variable of a gaseous sample to another while the other two variables are held constant. Therefore, combining all equations into a single equation will enable to account for the change in any or all of the variables.
Boyle’s law: V ∝ $$\frac{1}{P}$$
Charles’ law: V ∝ T
We can combine these equations into the following general equation that describes the physical
behaviour of all gases.
V ∝ $$\frac{nT}{P}$$
V = $$\frac{nRT}{P}$$
V = , where R = Proportionately constant.
The above equation can be rearranged to give PV = nRT – Ideal gas equation. Where, R is also known as Universal gas constant.

Question 8.
Derive the various values of R, gas constant.
1. For standard conditions in which P is 1 atm, volume 22.4 14 dm3 for 1 mole at 273.15 K.

= 0.08205 7 dm3 atm mol-1 K-1

2. Where P = 105 Pascal, V = 22.71 x 10-3 m3 for I mole of a gas at 273.15 K.

= 8.314 pa m3 K-1 mol-1
=8.314x 10-2bar dm3 K-1mol-1
R = 8.314 J K-1 mol-1.

Question 9.
What is meant by Boyle temperature (or) Boyle point? How is it related with compression point?
(1) Over a range of low pressures, the real gases can behave ideally at a particular temperature called as Boyle temperature or Boyle point.
(2) The Boyle point varies with the nattirc of the gas.
(3) Above the Boyle point, the compression point Z > 1 for real gases i.e. real gases show positive deviation.
(4) Below the Boyle point, the real gases first show a decrease for Z, reaches a minimum and then increase with increase in pressure. So, it is clear that at low pressure and at high temperature, the real gases behave as ideal gases.

Question 10.
Explain the different methods used for liquefaction of gases.

• Linde’s method: Joule-Thomson effect is used to get liquid air or any other gas.
• Claude’s process: In addition to Joule-Thomson effect, the gas is allowed to perform mechanical work so that more cooling is produced.
• Adiabatic process: This method of cooling is produced by removing the magnetic property of magnetic material e.g. Gadolinium sulphate. By this method, a temperature of 10-4 K i.e. as low as zero Kelvin can be achieved.

Samacheer Kalvi 11th Chemistry Gaseous State 5 – Mark Question

Question 1.
How CH4 He and NH3 are deviating from ideal behaviour? (or) Explain how real gases deviate from ideal behaviour.
1. The gases which obeys gas equation PV = nRT are known as ideal gases. The gases which do not obey PV = nRT are known as real gases.

2. The gas laws and the kinetic theory are based on the assumption that molecules in the gas phase occupy negligible volume (assumption 1) and that they do not exert any force on one another either attractive or repulsive (assumption 2). Gases whose behaviour is consistent with these assumptions are said to exhibit ideal behaviour.

3. The following graph shows RT plotted against P for three real gases and an ideal gas at a given temperature.

4. According to ideal gas equation, PV/RT is equal to n. Plot PV/RT versus P for ‘n’ moles oigas at 0°C. For1 mole of an ideal gas PV/ RT is equal to 1 irrespective of the pressure of the gas.

5. For real gases, we observe various deviations from ideal behaviour at high pressure. At very low pressure, all gases exhibit ideal behaviour, ie. PV/RT values all converge to n as P approaches zero.

6. For real gases, this is true only at moderate low pressures. (≤ 5 atm) significant variation occurs as the pressure increases. Attractive forces operate among molecules at relatively short deviation.

7. At atmospheric pressure, the molecules in a gas are far apart and attractive forces arc negligible. At high pressure, the density of the gas increases and the molecules are much closer to one another. Intermolecular forces can be significant enough to affect the motion of the molecules and the gas will not behave ideally.

Question 2.
Derive Van der Waals equation of state.
1. Consider the effect of intermolecular forces on the pressure exerted by a gas form the following explanation.

2. The speed of a molecule that is moving toward the wall of a container is reduced by the attractive forces exerted by its neighbours. Hence, the measured gas pressure is Q lower than the pressure the gas would exert, if it behave ideally.

Where ‘a’ is the proportionality constant and depends on the nature of the gas and n and V are the number of moles and volume of the container and respectively an2/ V2 is the correction term.

3. The frequency of encounters increases with the square of the number of molecules per unit volume n2/ V2. Therefore an2/ V2 represents the intermolecular interaction that causes non-ideal behaviour.

4.  Another correction is concerned with the volume ¿ccupied by the gas molecules. ‘V’ represents the volume of the container. As every individual molecule of a real gas occupies certain volume, the effective volume V- nb which is the actually available for the gas, n is the number of moles and b is a constant of gas.

5.  Hence Van der Waals equation of state for real gases are given as $$\left(P+\frac{a n^{2}}{V^{2}}\right)$$ (V – nb) = nRT Where a and b are Van der Waals constants.

Question 3.
Explain about Andrew’s experimental isotherms of CO2 gas.
1. Andrew plotted isotherms of carbon dioxide at different temperatures. it is then proved that many real gases behave in a similar manner like CO2.

2. At a temperature of 303.98 K, CO2 remains as a gas. Below this temperature, CO2, turns into liquid CO2 at 7 3atm. It is called the critical temperature of CO2.

3. At 303.98 K and 73 atm pressure, CO3,, becomes a liquid but remains a gas at higher temperature.

4. Below the critical temperature, the behaviour of CO2 is different. For example, consider an isotherm of CO2 at 294.5 K, it is a gas until the point B, is reached. At B, a liquid separates along the line BC, both the liquid and gas co-exist. At C, the gas is completely condensed.

5. If the pressure is higher than at C, only the liquid is compressed so, a steep rise in pressure is observed. Thus, there exist a continuity of state.

6.  A gas below the critical temperature can be liquefied by applying pressures.

Activity – 1
The table below contains the values of pressure measured at different temperatures for 1 moie of an ideal gas. Plot the values in a graph and verify the Gay Lussac’s law. [Lines in the pressure vs temperature graph are known as iso chores (constant volume) of a gas]

Solution:
Gay Lussac’s law at constant volume = $$\frac{P_{1}}{T_{1}}=\frac{P_{2}}{T_{2}}$$

If temperature increases, pressure also increases.
So $$\frac{P_{1}}{T_{1}}=\frac{P_{2}}{T_{2}}$$
