Introduction Examples of gases are as follows: oxygen, hydrogen, helium etc. It is not a new phenomenon that gases are one of four states of matter. Gases are made up of molecules that are further made up of individual atoms. Those atoms may be the same or different thereby forming elements and compounds respectively. The properties associated with the gases lie between the liquid and plasma states. All the physical characteristics of gases and the compositions are based on their intermolecular forces and intermolecular spaces between the constituents. Gases have very wide spaces between them due to the dominance ... Read More

Introduction The mechanical properties of fluids are a branch of physics that states about the mechanics of the fluids, it includes the liquid, gas and the plasmas. Fluids are incompressible which means the density of the liquid is not dependent on the variation in the pressure and remains as constant. They also count as the most non-viscous. It means, that two liquid surfaces that came in contact are not pressing any kind of tangential force on one another. What is Fluid? In the field of chemistry, the term fluid can be referred to any liquid or ... Read More

Introduction The properties of the solution are distinct compared to pure solvents and solutes. But several characteristics of the solution rely on the characteristics of the solute particles. It can be explained with some examples, the solution comprised of the solute Hydrogen chloride is acid while the solution of Ammonia is a base. And the solution of Sodium chloride is more packed while that of sucrose is thicker. But some characteristics of solutions do not rely on the character of solute particles existing instead it accounts only for the digit of solute particles present or the concentration of the solution. ...

Introduction We all might have noticed that it takes a long time for the honey to reach the mouth of the bottle when the honey bottle is about to empty. Such liquid behaviour in the flow possesses some internal property which is explained by the term viscosity. It is the property of a liquid by which an internal force comes into play between different layers whenever there is a relative motion between these layers of the liquid. In simple words, viscosity is related to the thickness of the liquid. For example, honey is thicker than water so it will take ... Read More

Boyles Law

Updated on 13-Oct-2022 11:19:47
Introduction Boyle's Law, which describes the effect of pressure on gas, is the most often utilised and has the most influence out of the three basic Gas Laws that exists. As a result, it will be the focus of this tutorial. The usage of scuba tanks by divers who need to operate and breathe underwater is a simple illustration of Boyle's Law in action in the real world. How is it that a diver can stay submerged for so long inhaling from a scuba tank with such a little internal volume capacity which is usually less than percent cubic feet? ... Read More
