    Unit 7 Objectives

    By the end of this unit, you will be able to:

    • Define the property of temperature and pressure
    • Define and convert among the units of temperature and pressure
    • Describe the operation of common tools for measuring gas pressure
    • Identify the mathematical relationships between the various properties of gases
    • Use the ideal gas law, and related gas laws, to compute the values of various gas properties under specified conditions
    • Use the ideal gas law to compute gas densities and molar masses
    • Perform stoichiometric calculations involving gaseous substances
    • State Dalton’s law of partial pressures and use it in calculations involving gaseous mixtures
    • State the postulates of the kinetic-molecular theory
    • Use this theory’s postulates to explain the gas laws
