Avogadro’s Hypothesis
Law of Combining Gas Volumes
The volume of gases taking part in a chemical reaction show simple whole number ratios to one another
when those volumes are measured at the same temperature (T) and pressure (P)

Boyle’s Law (P vs V)
At constant temperature:
Volume of a given quantity of gas is inversely proportional to pressure: V= 1/P
(E.g. if the volume of a gas is doubled, its pressure is halved.)
The product of a gas’s volume and its pressure is a constant : PV = constant, PV = k
So, at constant temperature for a given quantity of gas : PiVi = PfVf
Pi and Vi are the initial pressure and volume,
Pf and Vf are the final pressure and volume.
Note: pressures and volumes must be in the same units of measurement on each side.
Ideal vs. Real gases
All gases approximate Boyle's Law at high temperatures and low pressures.
Ideal Gas - a hypothetical gas which obeys Boyle's Law at all temperatures and pressures
Real Gas - approaches Boyle's Law behaviour as the temperature is raised or the pressure
Boyle’s Law – inversely proportional
Note how the
volume changes in
relation to the
pressure exerted on
a gas.
At a given
temperature, this
relationship is
predictable for an
ideal gas.
Twice the pressure (P2) = half the volume (V2)
Boyle’s Law - Graph
P vs V gives a parabolic shape
V vs 1/P gives a linear shape

2.70 dm3 of gas was originally at a pressure of 1.20 atm.

131 kPa
Charles’ Law (T vs V)
At constant pressure,
Volume of a given quantity of gas is directly proportional to the absolute temperature : Vα T (in
(E.g. if the temperature (K) is doubled, the volume of gas is also doubled.)
The ratio of its volume and the absolute temperature is a constant : V/T = constant, V/T = k
So, at constant pressure: Vi/Ti = Vf/Tf
Ti and Vi are the initial temperature and volume,
Tf and Vf are the final temperature and volume.
Note: Ti and Tf must be in Kelvin NOT Celsius. (temperature in Kelvin = temperature in Celsius + 273)
Ideal vs. Real gases
All gases approximate Charles' Law at high temperatures and low pressures.
Well above it’s condensation point, the volume of a real gas decreases linearly as it is cooled at constant
pressure. However, as the gas approaches the condensation point, the decrease in volume slows down.
At condensation, the gas turns to a liquid and, therefore, does not obey Charles’ Law
Absolute zero (OK) is the temperature where the volume of a gas would theoretically be zero if it did not
Same pressure
Note how the volume
changes in relation to
temperature with constant
pressure applied
Increase the temperature and
the volume goes up
At a given pressure, the
pressure is directly
proportional to the volume.
(As temperature goes up, so
does the pressure)
Try this: fill a balloon with air, then put it in the freezer. What
happened? How does this demonstrate Charles’ Law?
Charles Law - Graph
Volume is directly proportional
to absolute temperature (linear)
Extrapolate this relationship back to
absolute zero where the volume of a gas is
theoretically zero and all molecular motion
stops. Is this possible?
Exercises 3

temperature of -230C. What volume would it occupy at
300 K assuming the pressure remains constant? 6.0 m3

480 cm3
pressure change, find the new volume.
When heated under constant pressure, the volume of a
gas increased from 2.42 dm3 to 2.67 dm3. If the initial
temperature was 190C, find the final temperature in 0C.
Gay-Lussac’s Law (P vs T)
At constant volume,
Pressure of a given quantity of gas is directly proportional to it’s
the ratio of pressure and temperature is equal to a constant p/T = k
(a constant)
So, at constant volume: pi/Ti = pf/Tf
pi and Ti are the initial pressure and temperature,
pf and Tf are the final pressure and temperature.
Note: pressures and temperature (Kelvin) must be in the same units of
measurement on each side.

volume stays constant, what would the new pressure be?
1.60 atm
2. The pressure of a gas is reduced from 102.5 kPa to 97.5 kPa.
If the volume does not change, calculate the final
temperature in Celsius if the initial temperature was 150C.
3. A sample of gas has an initial temperature of 100C. If the
pressure is doubled, find the resulting temperature in
Celsius assuming constant volume.
293 C
Combined Gas Law
If we combine all three individual gas laws into one, we can show how pressure,
temperature and volume are related in one equation.
pi V i =
pf Vf
Temperature must be in Kelvin. Pressure and volume can be in any unit as long
as they are the same on both sides of the equation.
This equation can be used if there is more than one variable changing at once.

232 mL. What would be the volume in litres at STP?

Ideal Gas Law
An Ideal Gas (perfect gas) is one which obeys Boyle's Law, Charles' Law and G-L’s Law exactly.
 An Ideal Gas obeys the Ideal Gas Law (General gas equation):
PV = nRT
n=moles of gas,
R=the gas constant (dependent on the units of pressure, temperature and volume)
R = 8.314 J K-1 mol-1
R = 0.0821 L atm K-1 mol-1
P is in (Pa), V is in (m3), T is in (K) (note: J = m3Pa)
P (atm), V (L), T (K)
Presumptions – Is any gas ideal?
Presumptions of an Ideal Gas according to Kinetic Theory of Gases:
Real Gases deviate from Ideal Gas Behaviour because
Gases consist of molecules which are in continuous random motion
The volume of the molecules present is negligible relative to the total volume
occupied by the gas
Intermolecular forces are negligible
Pressure is due to the gas molecules colliding with the walls of the container
at low temperatures the gas molecules have less kinetic energy (move around less)
so they do attract each other
at high pressures the gas molecules are forced closer together so that the volume of
the gas molecules becomes significant compared to the volume the gas occupies
The Overall Presumption
 Under ordinary conditions, deviations from Ideal Gas behaviour are so
slight that they can be neglected. A gas which deviates from Ideal Gas
behaviour is called a non-ideal gas.
