In-Class Packet for Gases

1. Rationalize and explain the following

a. Aerosol cans will explode if heated.

b. You can drink through a soda straw.

c. A thin-walled can will collapse when the air inside is removed by a

vacuum pump.

2. Figure 5.2 shows a picture of a barometer. Which of the following statements

is the best explanation of how this barometer works

a. Air pressure outside the tube causes the mercury to move in the tube
until the air pressure inside and outside the tube is equal.
b. Air pressure inside the tube causes the mercury to move in the tube
until the air pressure inside and outside the tube is equal.
c. Air pressure outside the tube counterbalances the weight of the
mercury in the tube
d. Capillary action of the mercury causes the mercury to go up the tube
e. The vacuum that is formed at the top of the tube holds up the mercury.
3. Freon-12 (CF2Cl2) is commonly used as the refrigerant in central home air
conditioners. The system is initially charged to a pressure of 4.8 atm.
Express this pressure in each of the following units (1 atm = 14.7 psi).
