Question 1
Write the name and symbol of each state variable of a gas.
Solution 1
An ideal gas can be characterized by three state variables:

Solution 12 ## Chapter 2 - Study of Gas Laws Exercise 22

Question 1
Is it possible to change the temperature and pressure of a fixed mass of a gas without changing its volume? Explain your answer.
Solution 1 Question 2
Explain briefly:
(a) The Kelvin scale has been adopted for chemical calculation.
(b) The absolute zero is a theoretical concept.
(c) When stating the volume of a gas, the pressure and temperature should also be given.
Solution 2
(a) Volume of a gas would be reduced to zero at 0 K (-2730C).All temperatures on the Kelvin scale are positive, so Kelvin scale has been adopted for chemical calculation.
(b) At absolute zero temperature, volume of a gas would be reduced to zero. Theoretically,this is the lowest temperature that can be reached. At this temperature all molecular motions cease. Thus, practically this temperature is impossible to attain because on cooling gases liquefy and Charles' law is no more applicable.
(c) According to combined gas law equation, there is simultaneous effect of temperature and pressure changes on the volume of a given mass of a gas. So, when stating the volume of a gas, the pressure and temperature should also be given.

Question 3

Solution 3 Question 4

Which of the following statements are true and which are false?
(a) At constant pressure if a sample of a gas is heated from 0Oc to 2730C,the volume will be double.
(b) At constant pressure if a sample of a gas is heated from 4750C TO 12730C,the volume will be double.
(c) Boyle studied the variation of the volume of a gas  with pressure and found that  as the pressure increases, so does the volume.
(d) A gas exerts pressure at the bottom but not on the walls of container.

Solution 8 Question 9
Give an experiment to show the pressure volume relationship of gas.
Solution 9
We trap a definite quantity of  air in the closed vessel. At any point, the pressure on the air is equal to the atmospheric pressure plus the pressure due to the excess mercury column in the open end tube. By pouring mercury in the tube, we increase the pressure on the air and measure its volume under that pressure. We thus obtain a set of data for the volume of a fixed mass of air under different pressures.
For a given mass of air at constant temperature, the following observations are made-
(i) The volume of air decreases with increasing pressure and vice versa.
(ii) The proportion by which the volume decreases or increases is the same by which the pressure increases or decreases.
Question 10
The molecular theory accounts for the pressure exerted by a gas in a closed vessel as a result of the gas molecules striking against the wall of the vessel. How will the pressure change if :
(a) The temperature is doubled keeping the volume constant,
(b) The volume is halved, keeping the temperature constant?
Solution 10
(a) Pressure will also be doubled.
(b) Pressure will be double.

Solution 11
(a) 273
(b) absolute zero
(c) absolute temperature

(a) the volume changes to 4 dm3,
(b) the volume is increased by one and half times.

(b) What will be the pressure when the chamber is brought to 100 oC?

A fixed mass of a gas has a volume of 750 cm3 at -23oC and 800 mm pressure. Calculate the pressure for which the volume will be 720 cm3, the temperature being -30C.
Solution 15 Question 16
Why does the size of a weather balloon become larger and larger as it ascends into higher space?
Solution 16
As weather balloon go higher into the atmosphere, the air becomes less dense, so air pressure drops. Because of this, the air that is already inside the balloon  expands to cope with the difference in pressure. The end result is that the balloon expands making it larger.

Question 17
The pressure of a gas maintained in a steel tank is 20 atmospheres. If the pressure has to be increased by 20%, to what temperature must the tank be heated, if the initial temperature is 27oC?
