Air Pressure & Shallow Wells
• water for many homes is
•
•
•
supplied by a well less than
30 ft. deep with a pump at
the surface
the pump removes air from
the pipe, decreasing the air
pressure in the pipe
the outside air pressure then
pushes the water up the pipe
the maximum height the
water will rise is related to
the amount of pressure the
air exerts
Tro, Chemistry: A Molecular Approach

Atmospheric Pressure
• pressure is the force
•
exerted over an area
on average, the air
exerts the same
pressure that a column
of water 10.3 m high
would exert
 14.7 lbs./in2
 so if our pump could
get a perfect vacuum,
the maximum height
the column could rise is
10.3 m

Gases Pushing
• gas molecules are constantly in motion
• as they move and strike a surface, they
push on that surface
 push = force
• if we could measure the total amount of
force exerted by gas molecules hitting
the entire surface at any one instant, we
would know the pressure the gas is
exerting
 pressure = force per unit area
Tro, Chemistry: A Molecular Approach

The Effect of Gas Pressure
• the pressure exerted by a gas can cause some
amazing and startling effects
• whenever there is a pressure difference, a gas
will flow from area of high pressure to low
pressure
the bigger the difference in pressure, the stronger
the flow of the gas
• if there is something in the gas’s path, the gas
will try to push it along as the gas flows
Tro, Chemistry: A Molecular Approach
5
Atmospheric Pressure Effects
• differences in air pressure result in weather
and wind patterns
• the higher up in the atmosphere you climb, the
lower the atmospheric pressure is around you
at the surface the atmospheric pressure is 14.7 psi,
but at 10,000 ft it is only 10.0 psi
• rapid changes in atmospheric pressure may
cause your ears to “pop” due to an imbalance
in pressure on either side of your ear drum
Tro, Chemistry: A Molecular Approach
6
Pressure Imbalance in Ear
If there is a difference
in pressure across
the eardrum membrane,
the membrane will be
pushed out – what we
commonly call a
“popped eardrum.”
Tro, Chemistry: A Molecular Approach
7
The Pressure of a Gas
• result of the constant
movement of the gas
molecules and their collisions
with the surfaces around them
• the pressure of a gas depends
on several factors
number of gas particles in a
given volume
volume of the container
average speed of the gas
particles

Measuring Air Pressure
• use a barometer
• column of mercury
•
supported by air
pressure
force of the air on the
surface of the mercury
balanced by the pull of
gravity on the column
of mercury

Manometers
• the pressure of a gas trapped in a container can be
•
•
•
measured with an instrument called a manometer
manometers are U-shaped tubes, partially filled with a
liquid, connected to the gas sample on one side and
open to the air on the other
a competition is established between the pressure of the
atmosphere and the gas
the difference in the liquid levels is a measure of the
difference in pressure between the gas and the
atmosphere

a larger pressure than the
atmosphere, so

Mixtures of Gases
• when gases are mixed together, their molecules
behave independent of each other
 all the gases in the mixture have the same volume
 all completely fill the container  each gas’s volume = the volume
of the container
 all gases in the mixture are at the same temperature
 therefore they have the same average kinetic energy
• therefore, in certain applications, the mixture can be
thought of as one gas
 even though air is a mixture, we can measure the pressure,
volume, and temperature of air as if it were a pure substance
 we can calculate the total moles of molecules in an air sample,
knowing P, V, and T, even though they are different molecules

Partial Pressure
• the pressure of a single gas in a mixture of gases is
•
called its partial pressure
we can calculate the partial pressure of a gas if
 we know what fraction of the mixture it composes and the
total pressure
 or, we know the number of moles of the gas in a container of
known volume and temperature
• the sum of the partial pressures of all the gases in the
mixture equals the total pressure
 Dalton’s Law of Partial Pressures
 because the gases behave independently

Collecting Gases
• gases are often collected by having them displace
•
•
water from a container
the problem is that since water evaporates, there is
also water vapor in the collected gas
the partial pressure of the water vapor, called the
vapor pressure, depends only on the temperature
 so you can use a table to find out the partial pressure of
the water vapor in the gas you collect
• if you collect a gas sample with a total pressure of
758.2 mmHg* at 25°C, the partial pressure of the
water vapor will be 23.78 mmHg – so the partial
pressure of the dry gas will be 734.4 mmHg

pressure of the collisions is the same

would not be present in the air without, or are increased
by, man’s activities
 though many of the “pollutant” gases have natural sources as
well
• pollution added to the troposphere has a direct effect on
human health and the materials we use because we
come in contact with it
 and the air mixing in the troposphere means that we all get a
smell of it!
• pollution added to the stratosphere may have indirect
effects on human health caused by depletion of ozone
 and the lack of mixing and weather in the stratosphere means
that pollutants last longer before “washing” out

Pollutant Gases, SOx
• SO2 and SO3, oxides of sulfur, come from coal
combustion in power plants and metal refining
as well as volcanoes
• lung and eye irritants
• major contributor to acid rain
2 SO2 + O2 + 2 H2O  2 H2SO4
SO3 + H2O  H2SO4

Pollutant Gases, NOx
• NO and NO2, oxides of nitrogen, come from burning of
fossil fuels in cars, trucks, and power plants
 as well as lightning storms

NO2 causes the brown haze seen in some cities
lung and eye irritants
strong oxidizers

Pollutant Gases, CO
• CO comes from incomplete burning of fossil
fuels in cars, trucks, and power plants
depleting your ability to acquire O2
• at high levels can cause sensory impairment,
stupor, unconsciousness, or death

Pollutant Gases, O3
• ozone pollution comes from other pollutant
gases reacting in the presence of sunlight
as well as lightning storms
known as photochemical smog and ground-level
ozone
• O3 is present in the brown haze seen in some
cities
• lung and eye irritants
• strong oxidizer

Stratospheric Ozone
• ozone occurs naturally in the stratosphere
• stratospheric ozone protects the surface of the earth
from over-exposure to UV light from the sun
O3(g) + UV light  O2(g) + O(g)
• normally the reverse reaction occurs quickly, but
the energy is not UV light
O2(g) + O(g)  O3(g)

Ozone Depletion
• chlorofluorocarbons became popular as aerosol
•
•
•
propellants and refrigerants in the 1960s
CFCs pass through the tropopause into the stratosphere
there CFCs can be decomposed by UV light, releasing
Cl atoms
CF2Cl2 + UV light  CF2Cl + Cl
Cl atoms catalyze O3 decomposition and removes O
atoms so that O3 cannot be regenerated
 NO2 also catalyzes O3 destruction
Cl + O3  ClO + O2
O3 + UV light  O2 + O
ClO + O  O2 + Cl
