6. Gas Laws Defnition
A) Boyle’s Law 1. Pressure of a given mass of an ideal gas is inversely
proportional its volume at a constant temperature.

## B) Charles' law 2. Volume of an ideal gas at constant pressure is directly

proportional to the absolute temperature.

## C) Avogadro’s law 3. Equal volumes of gases at the same temperature and

pressure contain equal numbers of molecules.

absolute temperature of the gas at a constant volume

a) A- 1, B- 2, C - 3, D - 4
b) A- 4, B- 2, C - 3, D - 1
c) A- 3, B- 4, C - 1, D - 2
d) A- 4, B- 1, C - 2, D – 3

SECTION 2

7. An ideal gas has a density of 1.78 kg/m3 is contained in a volume of 44.8 x 10-3 m3 . The
temperature of the gas is 273 K. The pressure of the gas is 1.01 x 105 Pa. The gas constant
R = 8.31 J K⋅ -1 ⋅ mole .-1. How many moles of gas are present?
