11/14 – Monday “B” Day  

Main focus: 

1. To Define vapor pressure, boiling, and normal boiling

2. To identify the variables the affect boiling. 
3. To utilize table H to solve vapor pressure questions
4. To Identify the relationship with Vapor Pressure, Boiling points and Intermolecular 
Vapor Pressure – Force due to colliding gas molecules upwards from a liquid due to evaporation
The higher the rate of evaporation the higher the vapor pressure. 
2 factors that drive Vapor Pressure :
1) Temperature – If you increase the temperature the vapor pressure increases.  This makes sense! If you add more heat to a liquid it average kinetic energy increases and it will evaporate more.  Remember heat of vaporization?
2220 J/g :  More energy = More grams of water vaporized
2) Intermolecular attractactions (IMF’s) –  These are forces that keep molecules together in a solid or a liquid. If the IMF’s are greater than another liquid at the same temperature, the liquid with weaker IMF’s will be able to separate from each other and evaporate more readily thus producing more vapor pressure.
Boiling – is a phase change that represents a liquids maximum evaporation or vapor pressure.
The liquid’s boiling point represents when the liquids vapor pressure is maximum!  This maximum is attained when the vapor pressure of the liquid equals the opposing force of the pressure molecules of gas in the atmosphere (atmospheric pressure).


2 factors that drives Boiling Point :

1) Atmospheric Pressure – If the force of gas particles already in the air above are colliding at the surface of the liquid then how easily a gas particle can escape the liquid phase depends on how much these particle are colliding on the liquid.  Lower the atmospheric pressure and the boiling point will decrease. You will need less energy to escape if there is less force on top of you.

2) Intermolecular forces (IMF’s) – If a liquid evaporates very easy like butane (baggie demo Friday) then it does so because the temperature is low OR the IMF’s are very weak.  If the IMF’s are weak then the liquid does not need a lot of heat (lower temperature) to overcome the force of collisions due to the atmospheric pressure.

Period  8:

1.  Vapor pressure lesson –  We will be studying  intensive properties of liquids called vapor pressure.

                        a) boiling is relative – boiling is not based on temperature – baggie demo

                                     – Intermolecular forces is a factor in boiling

                                               LIquid Smear Demo

                                 – atmospheric pressure is a factor in boiling- how do we know that is exists?

                                           Vacuum demos

                                                                     a)  Accordian Container demo

                                                                     b) Boil water at room temperature.
