About This Chapter
OAE Chemistry: Gases - Chapter Summary
The lessons in this chapter help you review gas concepts that you could be asked about on the OAE Chemistry exam. You'll find comprehensive, but short, lessons covering:
- Kinetic molecular theory
- Boyle's law and Charles' law
- Relationship between gas pressure and temperature
- The gas constant and ideal gas law
Professional instructors teach these lessons, breaking down larger concepts into bite-sized chunks that help you quickly retain critical info for the exam. Our lessons are mobile friendly, so you can watch videos from any location, at any time, using your smartphone or tablet.
OAE Chemistry: Gases - Chapter Objectives
Ohio's teacher licensing process includes the passing of subject exams, such as the OAE Chemistry exam. The OAE Chemistry exam includes 150 multiple-choice questions that tests your knowledge of five chemistry domains. Gases are part of the matter and atomic structure domain that makes up 18% of the exam. Our lessons feature self-assessment quizzes that you can use to get familiar with the format of the questions on the exam before you register for it.
1. The Kinetic Molecular Theory: Properties of Gases
What makes a gas ideal? What types of characteristics do ideal gases have? In this lesson, we will discuss the many characteristics of gases and how knowing the microscopic properties of gas particles will help you understand the macroscopic properties of a gas.
2. Boyle's Law: Gas Pressure and Volume Relationship
Have you ever wondered how an air powered water gun works? It uses the fantastic properties of gases to make a summer day more enjoyable! In this lesson, we will be discussing Boyle's Law and the relationship between pressure and volume of a gas.
3. Charles' Law: Gas Volume and Temperature Relationship
In this lesson, we will discover why the wind blows and what causes a hot air balloon to rise, a couple of the applications of Charles' Law that explain the relationship between the volume and temperature of a gas.
4. Gay-Lussac's Law: Gas Pressure and Temperature Relationship
You may know that you aren't supposed to put an aerosol can in a fire because it could explode, but do you know why? In this lesson, we will explain Gay-Lussac's law, which shows the relationship between the temperature and pressure of a gas.
5. The Ideal Gas Law and the Gas Constant
Have you ever wondered why the pressure in your car's tires is higher after you have been driving a while? In this lesson, we are going to discuss the law that governs ideal gases and is used to predict the behavior of real gases: the ideal gas law.
6. Using the Ideal Gas Law: Calculate Pressure, Volume, Temperature, or Quantity of a Gas
In another lesson, you learned that the ideal gas law is expressed as PV = nRT. In this video lesson, we'll go one step further, examining how to rearrange the equation to solve for a missing variable when the others are known.
