Some relevant p vs. 4. Extensive vapor pressure data compilations are to be found in many texts, notably O’Hanlon (2003) and Wutz, Adam, and Walcher (1989). 1 Convert a pressure of 400 mbar to (a) torr, (b) Pa. 2 A high-pressure gas storage cylinder contains 8 g of helium in a volume of 2 l at a temperature 22°C. What pressure (in Pa) will the gas exert? Also give the answer in bar. 3 If the cylinder in the above question had contained 8 g of argon, what would the pressure have been? 4 How many mbar liters of air occupy a volume of 1 m3 at a pressure of 104 Pa?

This argument ignores the motion of the other molecules. 17) The Molecular Description of Gases 35 Νotice that λ depends on n and σ, the collisional cross section, but not on the temperature, and not, therefore, on the velocity of molecules. It is determined just by the spatial distribution of targets and their size. Because n = p/kT, it is evident that λ is inversely proportional to pressure, λ∝1/p, and that the product λp is constant for a given gas. 376 nm. 4 nm). 414 nm, respectively. 17), the mean free path in helium will be about three times larger than that for nitrogen at any pressure.

1) which relates the molecular impact rate per unit area per second, J, to the number of molecules per unit volume, n (usually called the number density), and the average or mean molecular velocity v . 2) which relates pressure p to n, T, and Boltzmann’s constant k (= R0/NA). 3) which relates mean free path λ to n and the molecular diameter d. Note that the molecular number density n appears in all three formulae. 5 × 1025 molecules per cubic meter. 1). However, for the reasons explained, it will be derived, together with the result J = nv/4 , by considering molecular trajectories within a gas and then incorporating the results of the Maxwell–Boltzmann distribution of molecular speeds.
