Particles

Pressure in a Gas

Gas Pressure is created when gas particles collide with the walls of their container. The more often the particles collide with the walls, and the faster they are moving, the greater the pressure.

Demo

In this tutorial you will learn how to calculate the gas pressure in enclosed spaces depending on the containers volume.

The formula for this equation is written like this:

$pV = { \text K}$

Chilled practice question

Copy out the question and attempt to calculate the answer before watching the solution. Write down the equation and show all of your working, remember to add the units to your answer, this routine will guarantee you maximum marks in an exam. Mark your solution and correct if needed.

A gas in a sealed container has a volume of 12 m3. The pressure of the gas is 80 Pa. The volume of the container is increased and the pressure falls to 60 Pa. What is the new volume of the container ? The temperature of the gas remains unchanged.

Frozen practice question

The volume of a gas is reduced from 10 m3 to 2.5 m3 . The original pressure is 200 Pa. Calculate the new pressure.

Science in context

Pressure in a gas is caused when gas particles collide with the walls of their container. The more often the particles collide with the walls, and the faster they are moving when they do this, the greater the pressure. This is why the pressure in a tyre goes up when more air is pumped in.

Density

Density is a measure of how compact the particles are in a substance. Density is defined as the mass per unit volume.

What is Density

Density is a measure of how compact the particles are in a substance. Density is defined as the mass per unit volume. It is mathematically defined as mass divided by volume: ρ = m/V. The density(ρ) of a substance is the total mass (m) of that substance divided by the total volume (V) Of the substance.

Density equation

To calculate Density we use this equation.

${\rho} = {\text{m} \over\text{V}}$

Specific Latent Heat

Specific latent heat is the energy needed to change the state of a substance.

What is Specific latent heat?

Specific latent heat is the energy needed to change the state of a substance. Latent heat is the energy absorbed or released by a substance during a change in its physical state. The latent heat is normally shown as the amount of heat energy in joules per Kg mass of the substance undergoing the change of state.

Specific latent heat equation

To calculate Specific latent heat we use this equation.

$E = {\text{m} \text{L}}$

Specific latent heat demo

In this tutorial you will learn how to calculate the energy needed for different substances to change their state of matter.

Chilled practice question

The specific latent heat of water for melting is 334000 J/Kg. How much heat energy needed to melt a 30 Kg block of ice ?

Frozen practice question

What is the specific latent heat of a material if 2 Kg of the material releases 95.5 KJ of energy when it melts ?
