Today we learned about Water, which is the most important resources of Earth. In chemistry, H2O also known as Water which consisting 3 atoms. Oxygen atoms form a covalent bond with hydrogen atoms. We know that oxygen has a greater electronegativity than hydrogen. So that oxygen creates partial negative charges and hydrogen creates partial positive charge. Surface tension is the inward force pull to tend the aruface area of liquid. Molar mass of water is 18g/mol but boiling point is 100 degree celcius. Hydrogen bonding gives high surface tension, low vapor pressure, and high boiling point.
We learned about the Graham’s Law which is diffusion and effusion. Definition of diffusion is the tendency of molecules to move toward areas of lower concentration until it ùiorm throughout. Perfume can be an example, when you open the perfume bottle, we can be able to smell, the molecules in perfume can evaporate and diffuse, which like spreading out through the air in the room. Another process involves movement of molecules is effusion, which is like a gas that can escape through a small hole in its container. The rate of effusion of a gas is inversely proportional. The gas of lower mass can diffuse and effuse faster than gas of higher molar mass. How fast it moves, it depends on the molar mass.
Today we learned about the Dalton’s Law of Partial Pressure. It states that at a constant volume and temperature. Pressure total is equal the sum of all the gases, the partial pressures of component gases. The partial pressure is the contribution each gas in a mixture that makes the total pressure to exerted by gas. The fraction of the pressure exerted by gas does not change as the total pressure changes.
Gases are very easy to compress, or even squeeze into a smaller volume. When it collides with substances, the impact forces the molecule of another substances closer together. The compression of gas absorb the engery of the impact. The space between the particles in a gas helps it easy to compress. The amount of gas, the temperature and the factors are the ones that affect the gas pressure.
In chapter 13, we learned about the properties and assumptions of gases, and factors that affect the gas pressure. Gases are composed with small particles, hard spheres. It has insignificant volume which compared with the distance to the containers in liquid and solid. The motion in gas is very rapid, random and constant, it collides with each other to another particles. All collisions in gas are elastic that transferred from one to another without loss. The temperature and KE are proportion that when temperature increases, the KE should be decreases, but when temperature decreases, KE needs to be increases
