30 ) State Boyle’s law and explain it.
Answer : Statement of Boyles :
It states that the volume of the given mass of a gas is inversly proportional to the pressure of the gas while its temperature temians constant.
Explaination of Boyle’s Law :
Let us assume that a particular gas is enclosed in a closed container. Remember that the nature of the gas remains fixed throughout the experiment. Let us try to keep the temperature of the isolated system constant. After that, the piston is raised in an upward direction. As soon as the piston is raised, there is available more space. As we know that the gas molecules tend to occupy all the available space. In this way, the volume of the gas is increased. Now the piston is moved in a downward direction, all the molecules come to close each other. Hence, the volume of the gas decreased. Thus we have a conclusion, that whenever the pressure increases the volume of the gas decreases and vice – versa but the temperature, mass and nature of the gas should be kept constant.
31 ) State Charles’ law and explain it.
Answer : Statement of Charles’ Law :
It states that the volume of a given mass of a gas is increased or decreased by 1/273rd parts of its initial volume ( or volume at zero degree centigrade ) for every one degree centigrade rise or fall in temperature while pressure remains constant.
Explaination of Charles’ Law :
We know that, if the temperature of the gas increases the average kinetic energy of the gas molecules also increases. The gas molecules tend to occupy more and more space. Hence, the volume will also increase. According to Charles’ Law, if the temperature is increased by one-degree centigrade the volume of the fixed mass of any gas increases 1 / 273rd time of its initial volume but the temperature of the gas remains constant.
32 ) What is absolute zero temperature. Define absolute scale of temperature.
Answer : Absolute zero temperature : A temperature at which the volume of any gas becomes zero, is called as absolute temperature. Its value is -273 0C. This is only theoritical concept. Practically,before reaching this temperature, the state of gas changes into another state like liquid. It is the lowest possible temperature.
Absolute Scale of Temperature : A thermodynamic scale having lower limit as -2730C ( absolute zero temperature ) is called as absolute scale of temperature. It is invented by William Thomson — also known as Lord Kelvin. Therefore, this scale of temperature is also known as Kelvin Scale.
33 ) How is absolute zero obtained from Charles’ laws ?
Answer : At constant pressure, from Charles’ Law, we have
V = V0 ( 1 + t/273 )
where v = volume at absolute zero temperature t0C.
V0 = volume at 00C.
At absolute zero temperature volume becomes zero
V = 0
V0 ( 1 + t/273 ) = 0
or, ( 1 + t / 273 ) = 0
or, t//273 = -1
or, t = -273
Hence, the value of absolute zero temperature is -2730C.
34 ) Establish the combined law of Boyle’s and Charles’ law ? what are the basic assumptions of kinetic theory of gases.
Answer : Combined Form of Boyle’s Law and Charles’ Law :
Let us assume,
P = Pressure of the gas
V = Volume of the gas
T = Kelvin temperature of the gas
M = Mass of the gas
From Boyle’s Law, at constant temperature ( K ) for given mass ( M ) of the gas,
V ∝ 1 / P ————————————- ( 1 )
From Charles’ Law, at constant Kelvin temperatutre and for a given mass of the gas,
V ∝ T ————————————- ( 2 )
By joint variation, we have
V ∝ ( 1 / P ).T
V = K ( T / P )
PV = KT
PV / T = K
This the combined form of Boyle’s Law and Charles’ Law.
