Q.2

## Write down the main postulates of Kinetic Molecular Theory of Gases.

Introduction:
Kinetic molecular theory of gases deals with the study in which particles of
liquid in random motion and collide with each other and with the walls of
container. They possess special type of energy known as Kinetic energy.
Maxwell and Boltzmann discussed the distribution of velocities and
energies among the molecules. The summary of the behaviour of gases is
called Kinetic molecular theory of gases. It is given in the form of following
postulates.

## Postulates of Kinetic Molecular Theory of Gases:

Main postulates of kinetic molecular theory of gases are as under:
(1) Composition of Molecules:
A gas consists of very small microscopic particles called 'molecules'. Depending upon the nature of gas each gas
molecule may consist of an atom or group of atoms.
(2) Size of Molecules:
The distance between the gases molecules is small. They occupy negligible volume as compare to total volume of
the vessel.
(3) Motion between Molecules:
The gases molecules travel in random direction. The average distance between two collisions in gas molecules is
known as Mean free path.
(4) Intermolecular Distance:
The gases molecules are widely separated from another and having negligible volume and may be compressed
easily due to large empty space.
(5) Collision between Molecules:
The gases molecules collide with each other and walls of container. During these collisions they change the
directions. They have elastic collision. Elastic collision is that in which they neither lose nor gain energy.
(6) Attraction and Repulsion:
There is no force of attraction or repulsion among the molecules of gases.
(7) Effect of Temperature:
When temperature is applied on gases molecules, the average kinetic energy of gases molecules is also increased.
So average kinetic energy of molecules is proportional to temperature.
(8) Effect of Pressure:
When gas pressure is increased the collision between gases molecules is also increased.
(9) Kinetic Energy of Molecules:
The average kinetic energy of gas molecules is directly proportional to absolute temperature. At a given
temperature, the molecules of all gases have the same kinetic energy.

Postulates of Kinetic Molecular Theory of Liquids:
Main postulates of kinetic molecular theory of liquids are as under:
(1) Particles of liquids (like gases) are randomly arranged.
(2) These particles consist of clusters in which they are close to each other. Thats why they much more difficult
to compress than gases.
(3) The particles of liquid are free to move, and so liquid can flow, can be poured and assumes the shape of its
container.
(4) Hence they have no definite shape but of its container.

Q.4

## Postulates of Kinetic Molecular Theory of Solids:

Main postulates of kinetic molecular theory of solids are as under:
(1) Particles of solids are arranged in regular three dimensions and have less empty space
than gas molecules.
(2) The particles in solid are very close packed to each other due to strong attractive force
between them.
(3) They are unable to move freely because the have little space between them.
(4) They cannot be compressed but by appreciably pressure so they possess definite shape
and volume.

OR
The spontaneous mixing of molecules of different gases by random motion and collisions to form a
homogenous mixture is called Diffusion.
OR
The spontaneous flow of molecules from a region of higher concentration to a region of low concentration
is called Diffusion.
Explanation:
If there are two gases NO2 and O2, when separated by partition are allowed to mix by removing the partition, then
they diffuse into each other. They generate a homogenous mixture.

5) Definition of Effusion:
The passage of gas molecules one by one without collisions through a pin hole in their container into an
evacuated space is called Effusion.
OR
The process in which a gas passes through the pores or tiny holes in the vessel is called Effusion.

Explanation:
The reality is that the molecules of the gas are habitual in colliding with the walls of the vessel. When they reach
the wall and find a hole in that then they pass through the hole.

6) Definition of Compressibility:
The decrease in volume with a rise of pressure is called Compressibility.

7) Definition of Expansibility:
The increase in volume with the decrease of pressure is called Expansibility.

GASEOUS STATE
Q. 6

## Explain the behaviour of Gaseous State.

The gases molecules are widely separated from each other. They have more kinetic energy than liquid and solid.

## (1) Volume of Gases Molecules:

The gases molecules are widely separated from each other and travel in random direction. Therefore all the gases
acquire the volume of the container, in which they are placed.

(2) Diffusibility:
According to Kinetic Molecular Theory the gases molecules have large space between them. Due to space they
move freely and mixed with each other and spread out easily the space available in the container. For example
ammonia gas is liberated in room; its odour soon spreads through out the room.
(3) Compressibility:
The large empty spaces are present between the molecules of gases in gaseous state. Therefore when a gas is
subjected to compress by pressure these empty spaces reduced.

## (4) Effect of Temperature:

When temperature is applied on gases molecules, the volume increased is called Expansion and decreased is called
Contraction.

## (5) Effect of Pressure:

The force per unit area is called Pressure. According to Kinetic Molecular Theory when pressure is applied on
gases molecules the volume is decreased. Pressure is developed by the collision of molecules of gas on the wall of
container.

LIQUID STATE
Q.7

## The behaviour of liquid can be explained by following.

(1) Diffusibility:
According to Kinetic Molecular Theory the liquid molecules are in cluster form, they are very close to one
another. They are obtained by strong intermolecular force. The intermolecular distance is smaller and collision
frequency is higher as a result, the diffusion.

(2) Expansion:
According to Kinetic Molecular Theory when temperature is applied on the liquid the kinetic energy increases as a
result, their motion increase and the attraction between them weaken, then they can expand.
(3) Contraction:
According to Kinetic Molecular Theory when liquid is cooled, it contracts and solidifies. This is because its kinetic
energy is lowered.

(4) Compressibility:
When pressure is applied on liquid molecules they can be compressed from little space between the molecules.

## (5) Volume and Temperature:

According to Kinetic Molecular Theory when temperature is applied on the liquid molecules like gases, the volume
of liquid molecules increases. Because kinetic energy if liquid molecules increases. Therefore the volume of liquid
is increased.

Q.8

## There are different scales for the measurement of temperature

such as Celsius C and Fahrenheit C. Similarly another scale
known as absolute scale or Kelvin scale is determined on the
basis of Charle's law.
On the basis of Charle's law we known that the volume of the
gas changes to 1/273 times of its original volume for each 1 C
change of temperature. It suggests that the volume of a gas
would theoretically be zero at -273C. But this temperature has
never been achieved for any gas because all the gases condense
to liquid at a temperature above this point. So the minimum
possible temperature for a gaseous system is to be -273C. This
temperature is referred as absolute zero or zero degree of the
absolute scale or Kelvin scale.
To form an absolute scale thermometer if the equally spaced
divisions of centigrade thermometer are extended below zero
and when the point -273C is marked then this point is called as
absolute zero and the scale is called as absolute scale. It shows
that for the conversion of centigrade scale into Kelvin scale 273

BOYLES LAW
Q.9

State and explain Boyles Law. How Boyles Law can be represented graphically
and mathematically ?

Introduction:
Boyles law is a quantitative relationship between volume and pressure of a gas at constant temperature.

Statement:
"The volume of a given mass of a gas is inversely proportional to pressure if temperature remains constant ".

Explanation:

According to Boyles Law if pressure is increased of a gas at constant temperature then the volume of a given mass
is decreased and at constant temperature if pressure is double on a gas its volume decreases to one-half. If pressure
is reduced to half the volume of gas will be double.

Example:
Take three vessels and provided with moveable piston. Now introduce equal volume and applying pressure on gas
by keeping different weights on each of the pistons.

We have observed the vessel No:3 has small volume due to more pressure i-e time when vessel No:2 has greater
volume than vessel No:3 when vessel No:1 has larger volume due to small pressure. It has verified V is inversely
proportional to P.

## Mathematical representation of Boyles law:

According to Boyles law
V 1/P (When n and T are constant)
V= k (1/P)
PV= k
Where k is the proportionality constant and n is the number of moles of gas. The value of k is different
amounts of the same gas. It also depends upon the pressure and quantity of the gas. According to equation (1)
Boyles law has got another statement.

Statement:
The product of pressure and volume of a fixed amount of a gas is a constant quantity at constant temperature.
Let the initial pressure and initial volume are P1 and V1. final pressure and final volume are P2 and V2.
Since

## P1V1 = k ------------------ (1)

P2V2 = k ------------------(2)
Comparing (1) & ( 2)

Long Questions

## Experimental Verification of Boyles Law:

Boyles Law can be verified by following:
Take a gas in a cylinder with moveable piston which is attached with a manometer to record the pressure. The
volume V1 of the given quantity of a gas at pressure P1=1 atm. is reduced in proportion to the increase in pressure,
when the temperature is kept constant. When the piston is pressed twice the pressure becomes two atmospheres.
When this piston is pressed three times, then the pressure becomes three atmospheres. If the initial volume at two
atmospheres is 1dm3, then it becomes 0.5 dm3 and then 0.33 dm3, respectively with increasing pressures. The value
of the product of pressure and volume remains same at same temperature.

## Graphical Representation of Boyles Law:

In order to explain the Boyles law we can plot a graph between pressure of the gas on x-axis and volume of the gas
at y-axis at constant temperature. The amount of gas also remains constant.

V

P1V1

V2

P2 V2

Pressure

1/p

If the volume of a gas is plotted against the pressure a parabolic curve is obtained showing the decrease in volume
with increase in pressure. If the volume of a gas is plotted against 1/p a straight line is obtained.

## Explanation of Boyles Law in term of Kinetic Molecular Theory:

According to Kinetic Molecular Theory if the temperature remains constant and volume is decreased, the average
velocity of the gas molecules remains constant they collide more frequently with the walls of smaller vessel. The
more frequent collision cause higher pressure.

## Limitation of Boyles Law:

This law is not obeyed by gas under condition conditions of high pressure and low temperature.

CHARLESS LAW
Q. 10 State and explain Charless Law. Explain. How Charless Law can be represented
graphically and mathematically ?
Introduction:
It is quantitative relationship between volume and absolute temperature of a gas at constant pressure.

First Statement:
The volume of the given mass amount of the gas is directly proportional to its absolute temperature when the
pressure is kept constant.

Second Statement:
"The volume of a given mass of a gas increases or decreases by 1/273 times of its original volume at 0 0C for
every degree fall or rise of temperature at given pressure."

## College Objective Chemistry-I

Long Questions

Explanation:
According to Charless law the variation in volume takes
place due to temperature. When pressure of the given mass
of gas kept constant, if more temperature is provided to
system or gas the volume is increased and if temperature is
low then its volume would be small.

Mathematical representation:
Let the volume of a gas at T Kelvin is V
Then according to Charless law
V T (Pressure and number of moles are constant)
V=k T
V/T=k
Where k is the proportionality constant. Its value is different for different amounts of the same gas. The value of k
also depends upon the temperature maintained.

Third Statement:
The ratio of the volume to the absolute temperature of a fixed amount of gas remains constant
at constant pressure
V1/T1 = k ---------------(1)
V2/T2 = k ---------------(2)
Thus
V1/T1 = V2/T2

## Experimental Verification of Charless Law:

In order to verify this law, let us consider a fixed amount of gas enclosed in a cylinder with a movable piston. Let
the initial volume is V1 at temperature T2. When the cylinder is heated the volume and temperature of the gas will
rise. During this change pressure is kept constant because the piston moves upwards and final volume and
temperate are V2 and T2.

## Explanation of Charless Law in term of Kinetic Molecular Theory:

According to Kinetic Molecular Theory a decrease in temperature, the decreases the average kinetic energy of the
gas molecules, that is, average molecular velocity decreases. At constant pressure, the decreased velocity causes the
sample of gas to shrink and occupy a smaller volume.

## GRAHAMS LAW OF DIFFUSION

Q.14 State and explain Grahams Law of Diffusion.
First Statement:
The rate of diffusion or effusion of a gas is inversely proportional to the square root of density

Second Statement:
The comparative rates of diffusion of two gases are inversely proportional to the square root of their densities.

Explanation:
Graham established a relationship between the rate of diffusion of gases and their densities. Intermixing of two or
more gases to form a homogeneous mixture without any chemical change is called "DIFFUSION OF GASES".
Diffusion is purely a physical phenomenon. Gases diffuse very quickly due to large empty spaces among
molecules. Different gases diffuse with different rates (velocities).

## DALTONS LAW OF PARTIAL PRESSURE

Q.15 State and explain Daltons Law of Partial Pressure. How it can be explained in term
of kinetic molecular theory ?
First Statement:
The total pressure exerted by the mixture of gases is equal to sum of individual partial pressure
at given temperature.

Second Statement:
The sum of partial pressure of all the different gases in a mixture is equal to the total pressure of the mixture.

Explanation:
In a mixture of different gases which do not react
chemically each gas behaves independently of the
other gases and exerts its own pressure. This
individual pressure that a gas exerts in a mixture of
gases is called its partial pressure.
Based on this behaviour of gases, JOHN DALTON
formulated a basic law which is known as "The
Dalton's law of partial pressure".
Whenever ideal gases are mixed, they collide on the
walls of the container independently so the total
pressure is contributed by all the gases.

Example:
Air is a mixture of several gases ,like N2 = 78 %, O2
= 21% , Ar = 0.93%, CO2 = 0.03% and many other
gases. The total pressure of the atmosphere is equal
to the sum of individual partial pressure.

Mathematical Representation:
Consider a mixture of three non-reacting gases a , b and c .Partial pressures of these gases are Pa ,Pb and Pc
According to Dalton's law of partial pressure, their total pressure is given by:

Ptotal = Pa + Pb + Pc
Where P is total pressure exerted by all gases and Pa, Pb and Pc are partial pressure exerted by each gases a, b and c
respectively. According to General gas equation:
PV = nRT
P1V = n1RT
P2V = n2RT
P3V = n3RT
V (P1 + P2 + P3) = (n1 + n2 + n3) RT

## Dividing PV =nRT by P1V = n1RT we get

P1V / PV = n1RT / nRT
P1 / P = n1 / n
P = P1 x n1 / n
Where n is number of mole of gas and P is partial pressure
So
Total Pressure x number of mole of gas
Partial Pressure =
Total Moles

## Explanation of Daltons Law of Partial Pressure in term of Kinetic Molecular Theory:

According to kinetic molecular theory of gases there is no force of attraction or repulsion among the gas molecules.
Thus each gas behaves independently in a mixture and exerts its own pressure.
In terms of KINETIC MOLECULAR THEORY, Dalton's law of partial pressure can be explained as:
"In a non-reacting mixture of gases, each gas exerts separate pressure on the container in which it is confined due to
collision of it's molecules with the walls of container. The total pressure exerted by the gaseous mixture is equal to
the sum of collisions of the molecules of individual gas.

## IDEAL GASES AND REAL GASES

Q.16 What are Ideal and Real Gases ? What are the conditions under which gases
deviate from their ideal behaviour ?
Ideal Gases:
The gas laws (PV = nRT) and whose behaviour can be predicated by kinetic molecular theory is called Ideal gas.

## Real Gas OR Non-Ideal Gas:

A gas , which does not obey the gas laws is called Non-ideal gas or Real gas.
Actually there is no gas, which is perfectly ideal. All the actual gases, like H2, O2, CO2 etc are non-ideal gases
because these do not obey gas laws.

## Conditions under which deviation from Ideal Gas:

There are following two conditions at which gases show deviation from their ideal behaviour.
(1) At very high pressure
(2) At very low temperature

## Cause of deviation from ideal gas:

Actually two postulates of the kinetic molecular theory of gases is faulty. It means that general gas equation is
faulty. Those two postulates of kinetic theory of gasses are as follows:
(1) There are no forces of attraction among the molecules of gases.
(2) The actual volume of gas molecules is negligible as compared to the volume of the vessel.

VISCOSITY
Q.17 Define and explain Viscosity. What the factors which affect on Viscosity of
molecules ?
Definition:
The measure if internal resistance of liquid to its flow is called Viscosity.
OR
Internal friction present between two layers of a liquid which resists the flow of liquid is commonly
known as Viscosity.

Explanation:
Unlike gas, liquid molecules having property to flow due to Vander Waals force, which is weak temporary force of
attraction between liquid molecules.
A liquid in a tube is considered as made of a series of molecular layers. The layers of liquid in contact with the
walls of tube remain stationary. The layer in the center of the tube has high velocity.
A liquid with high viscosity is thick and flows slowly when a liquid with low viscosity is thin and flows quickly.
Different liquids have different viscosities.

Units of Viscosity:
Most common unit is "POISE"
Small unit is "CENTI POISE" 1Centipoise = 10-3 NS/m2 or 0.001 NS/m2
In S.I system unit is N.S/m2

## Factors affecting Viscosity:

(1) Size of Molecules:
Viscosity is directly proportional to its molecular weight. Liquids, which have bigger molecular size, are more
difficult to move than the smaller molecular size so Viscosity of a liquid having large molecules is high whereas the
viscosity of those liquids that have small molecules is low.

## (2) Shape of Molecules:

Spherical molecules provide resistance but oval shaped, elongated or disc like molecules provide greater resistance
in the flow of liquid. Thats why viscosity of liquids having spherical molecules is low.

## (3) Inter-molecular Force:

Intermolecular force means the force of attraction between two or more molecules. If greater the intermolecular
attraction in liquid, greater will be viscosity of the liquid therefore if the molecular size and shape of two liquids are
the same , then the liquid with stronger intermolecular attractive force will be more viscous than other.

(4) Temperature:
Viscosity of liquid decreases with increase in temperature. Because an increase in temperature, reduces the forces
of attraction between molecules.

## Explanation of Viscosity in term of Kinetic Molecular Theory:

According to Kinetic Molecular Theory the kinetic energy of molecules of liquids decreases on cooling which
causes a decrease in the velocity of molecules. As a result the volume taken by each molecule deceases on cooling
it results in the contraction of liquid.

Definition:
"Perpendicular force acting on the unit length of the surface of a liquid is called Surface Tension
Surface Tension = Force / Length
OR
Energy per unit area on the surface of liquid is called Surface Tension

Explanation:

## In order to understand surface tension, consider a

liquid in a beaker. The molecules well inside the
liquid are surrounded by like molecules and
therefore are equally attracted by all four sides as
compared to molecules lying on the surface of
liquid.
In the above figure A is surrounded by four
directions as compared to B Which only is
surrounded by three sides so A molecules lying on
surface will be attracted inwardly similarly all the
molecules on the surface will be subjected to an
inward pull.

## Unit of Surface Tension:

N/m (in S.I system)

## Dyne/cm (in C.G.S system)

Joule/m2 (in S.I system)

## Erg/cm2 (in C.G.S system)

Factors affecting Surface Tension:
(1) Temperature:
Surface tension of a liquid decreases with the increase in temperature because an increase in temperature, reduces
force of attraction between molecules. So temperature is inversely proportional to the temperature.

## (2) Hydrogen Bonding:

The liquid in which Hydrogen bond formation takes place, will have more surface tension than other liquids such as
water, have high values of surface tension.

## (3) Intermolecular Force:

If force of attraction between molecules is high then surface tension will also be high. There are following two
types of intermolecular force.
(i) Cohesive Force:
The force of attraction among the particles of liquid are called Cohesive force or Cohesion.
The force of attraction between a liquid and another surface are called Adhesive Force.

tension, such liquids will rise in the capillary tube
until the upward force due to the surface tension is
balanced by downward gravitational pull.

## Factors affecting Capillary Action:

(1) Diameter of Capillary Tube:
If the diameter of capillary tube is smaller, then it would be greater the height of the liquid.

## (2) Surface Tension of Liquid Molecules:

If the surface tension of liquid is greater , then it would be greater the height of the liquid.

VAPOUR PRESSURE
Q.20 Define and explain Vapour Pressure. What the factors affecting on Vapour
Pressure ?
Definition:
Pressure exerted by the vapour of a liquid at equilibrium is called Vapour Pressure of liquid.
OR
Pressure exerted by the vapours of a liquid when rate of evaporation and the rate of condensation becomes
equal is called Vapour Pressure.

Explanation:
There are two types of liquids. Volatile
and non-volatile liquids. Volatile liquids
evaporate quickly, having high vapour
pressure.
Consider a liquid closed in a container at
a certain temperature. High energy
molecules leave the surface of liquid and
gather above the surface in the empty
space in the form of vapours.

These molecules collide with the walls of the container as well as with the surface of liquid. In this way, they lose
some of their kinetic energy and there is a chance that these molecules are recaptured by the liquid surface. This
process is known as Condensation. Both the processes of condensation and evaporation continue till the rates of
both processes become equal. This state is called dynamic equilibrium. The pressure exerted by the vapours at this
state on the liquid surface at a particular temperature is called vapour pressure.
Units of Pressure:
It is expressed in mm of Hg, atmosphere, torr or Newton.

## Factoring affecting on Vapour Pressure:

(1) Inter-molecular Force:
Liquids having stronger intermolecular force have low vapour pressures while liquids with weaker intermolecular
forces have high vapour pressures. Hence, there is very close relationship between strength of intermolecular
attractive force and vapour pressure.

(2) Temperature:
Temperature is directly proportional to vapour pressure because at higher temperature, the kinetic energy of the
molecules is increased. Molecules of higher kinetic energy will escape from the liquid more quickly. Thus it causes
increase in the vapour pressure.

## (3) Nature of Liquid:

Liquids having low boiling points will show high vapour pressure while liquid with high boiling point will have
low vapour pressure.

BOILING POINT
Q.21 Define and explain Boiling Point. What is Normal Boiling Point ?
Definition:
Temperature at which the vapour pressure of liquid becomes equal to atmospheric pressure is called Boiling
Point.

Explanation:

When the liquid is heated, bubbles begin to form throughout its volume. The bubbles contain vapours, which begin
lighter than the liquid rise to the surface and burst there. The vapour pressure in the bubbles will be equal to the
atmospheric pressure. At this, all the bubbles contain in vapours will rise to the surface of liquid and burst there
and it appears that water is boiling. Boiling point of liquid varies with atmospheric pressure. If atmospheric
pressure is less then 760 torr then the boiling point of a liquid will decrease from its standard boiling point. Boiling
point of a liquid decreases with the decrease in pressure and vice versa. Boiling point of liquid varies with
atmospheric pressure.

## Normal Boiling Point:

Boiling point of a liquid when atmospheric pressure is 1.00 atmp or 760 torr is referred to as Normal Boiling Point.

Explanation:
The particles of solid weakly vibrate back and forth al all temperature. When the solid is heated, its particles vibrate
more vigorously about their average position and their kinetic energy is increased. When heating is continued
vibration of molecules becomes much more vigorous until the force between molecules becomes weak. Hence
molecules at the surface of crystal begin to disengaged themselves from their neighbour that is solid begins to melt.
