Each student will be able to:
1. Explain the kinetic molecular theory with respect to gas phase and what the major gas parameters mean (T, P, V, and n).
2. Using the kinetic molecular theory, explain the relationship between pressure and volume (Boyle's law), volume and temperature (Charles' law), and the number of particles in a gas sample (Avogadro's hypothesis).[6.1](6.1)
3. Explain the relationship between temperature and average kinetic energy.[6.2]
4. Perform calculations using the ideal gas law including the gas constant, R. [6.3](6.2)
Updated 2006 - (6.2) Understand the molar volume at 273K and 1atm (STP)
Beyond MCAS Topics
5. Describe the conditions under which a real gas deviates from ideal behavior.[6.4]
6. Interpret Dalton's empirical Law of Partial Pressures and use it to calculate partial pressures and total pressures.[6.5]
7. Use the combined gas law to determine changes in pressure, volume, or temperature.[6.6](6.1)
8. Experimentally determine the molar volume of a gas.
