Summative open note Gas laws, stoichiometry, and Kinetic Molecular theory quiz
Use the kinetic molecular theory to explain the following scenario:
You are planning a surprise for Ms. Baker. You plan to leave helium balloons in
her room up high where she can not reach them to remove them (it is fun being
short). To test your surprise you leave a helium filled Mylar balloon to float
over night in Ms. Baker's classroom. When you left the balloon was floating
approximately 6 ft above the floor. The next morning after clearing your
windshield of frost you drive to school early to check on your surprise and you
find that the balloon is sadly floating only 2 ft from the floor. Explain what
has happened to your balloon assuming ideal behavior.

At very high pressures (~ 1000 atm), the measured pressure exerted by real gases
is greater than that predicted by the ideal gas equation. This is mainly because
A such high pressures cannot be accurately measured.
B real gases will condense to form liquids at 1000 atm pressure.
C gas phase collisions prevent molecules from colliding with the walls of the
D of attractive intermolecular forces between gas molecules.
E the volume occupied by the gas molecules themselves becomes significant
At moderate pressures (~ 200 atm), the measured pressure exerted by CO2 gas is
less than that predicted by the ideal gas equation. This is mainly because
A such high pressures cannot be accurately measured.
B CO2 will condense to a liquid at 200 atm pressure.
C gas phase collisions prevent CO2 molecules from colliding with the walls of
D of attractive intermolecular forces between CO2 molecules.
E the volume occupied by the CO2 molecules themselves becomes significant.
The ideal gas law tends to become inaccurate when
A the pressure is lowered and molecular interactions become significant.
B the pressure is raised and the temperature is lowered.
C the temperature is raised above the temperature of STP.
D large gas samples are involved.
E the volume expands beyond the standard molar volume.
two flasks with equal volumes each contain argon gas. Four students are
discussing whether the density of the gas inside the flasks could be different
A The density could be different if the number of particles in the flasks is
B The density could be different if each of the argon particles is more
compressed in one of the flasks.
C The densities must be the same because each argon particle has a certain mass
D The densities must be the same because each flask contains only argon gas.
On a very hot and humid day, Alphonse takes an empty jar off the shelf. He puts
a lid on the jar tightly and places it in the refrigerator. One hour later

B“Water particles in the form of gas slowed and clump together when cooled."
C “The particles were always there but became much larger and visible when
D“Some liquid particles were created during cooling of the jar.”

Jane and Allen are experimenting in the lab with a sealed syringe of air. The
syringe of air begins in a hot water bath and then they move it to an ice water
bath. The plunger is free to move and it moves in when the syringe is placed in
the ice water.
What happens to the pressure of the air trapped in the syringe? Compare the
pressure of the air in the syringe in hot water to the air pressure in the ice
water well after the plunger has stopped moving.
A The pressure stays the same
B The pressure increases
C The pressure decreases
D There is not enough information to answer.
