Transcript of Gay-Lussacs Law of Gas

Gay-Lussacs Law of Gas! Who created this law? The man that had created this law was named Joseph Gay-Lussac. He was a French chemist who dicovered the relationship between the pressure and temperature of gasin 1802. He was born December 6, 1778 and died at the age of seventy one on May 9, 1850. What does the law state? This law states that the pressure of gas is directly proportional to Kelvin temperature if the volume remains constant. What variables are used in the equation? The variables that are used in the equation are P and T. P represents the pressure and T represents the temperature. The units used are kPa for pressure and K for temperature. What is the equation used? What is a real life example? A real life example of this law is a car tire. during the summer car tires are more prone to explode. This is because of the pressure in the tire. When the temperature outside of the tire increases, so does the pressure of the gas inside of the tire. Example Problem: The pressure ub a car tire is 198 kPa at 27 degrees Celsius. After a long drive, the pressure is 225 kPa. What is the temperature of the air in the tire?
