|Gases: Properties of Gases|
Causes odor to fill a room
Can be assumed that
volume of gas = volume of container
RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN VOLUME OF GASES VS LIQUIDS OR SOLIDS
Generally, the volume of a liquid or solid increase approximately 800 times when it forms a gas Large change in volume can be utilized to do work e.g. steam engine - escaping steam can be made to do work e.g. dynamite - liquid nitroglycerin produces 29 moles of gas for every 4 moles of liquid when detonated; each mole of gas occupies about 800 times more space than each mole of liquid e.g. popcorn - when oil inside is heated, it turns to gases and the kernel explodes
