Formula for Pressure
Pressure = Force/Area
Formula for area
Length x Width
a unit of pressure
Pressure increases force increases
Pressure directly proportional to force
Pressure and area are inversely proportional
If you increase the area by 2x, then the pressure would decrease by ½
F = 10N
Steps for Pascal equation
Pa equals
Pa = Newton/ meter2
Boyle's Law
A container holds 500. mL of CO₂ at 742 torr. What will be the volume of the CO₂ if the pressure is increased to 795 torr?
increases, directly proportional
If the temperature increases, volume
increases, inversely proportional
If the volume of a gas decreases, the pressure
? T :: ? collisions :: ? rate of reaction
more because there is less space
If volume deceases there are more or less collisions of particles?
Which law when graphed is a straight line?
Charles' Law, because temperature and volume are directly proportional
Why do mountain climbers need to carry oxygen tanks?
as air pressure decreases volume of the oxygen decreases, Boyle's Law
Why do ears pop on an airplane?
as the air pressure decreases, the pressure in your ears increases, Boyle's Law
The Law of Conservation of Mass
Mass cannot be created or destroyed but changes form
as volume decreases pressure increases, molecules more compact
If volume of a gas decreases how does that affect the pressure?
more collisions because there is less space
If the volume decreases are there more or fewer collisions of particles?
Increasing Pressure
Reducing the area over which the force is exerted.
Decreasing Pressure
Increasing the area over which the force is exerted.
Atmospheric Pressure
A pressure in the air. Caused by the change in the density of the air at different elevations. High elevations are less dense. Low elevations are very dense.
Hydraulic Systems
When a force is exerted to one side of the system, it increases when it gets to the other piston. A force applied to the small area piston travels to the larger piston wi…
Potential Energy
Energy Diagram's Y axis
Thermal Energy
energy associated with the motion of the particles of a substance
The measurable quantity that describes changes in matter brought about by forces.
Work = Force · Distance
Energy and Work Relationship
Work yields a change in energy.
Work Formula
Potential Energy Formula
Kinetic Energy Formula
Archimedes Principle
The buoyant force on an object is equal to the weight of the fluid displaced by the object.
Paschal's Principle
The principle that states that a change in pressure at any point in an enclosed fluid is transmitted equally through all parts of the fluid.
Von Guericke's Experiment
Demonstrated how great atmospheric pressure is. He took a metal sphere, closed it, removed all the air from inside it, unlocked it, and watched the two halves stay together on their own. The atmosphere's pres…
Buoyant Force
A force generated on object. The weight the fluid displaces determines the strength of the buoyant force.
Boyle's Experiment
Demonstrated that pressure and volume remain constant. When volume increases, pressure decreases. Also, doubling the pressure made the volume decrease by half, because they are proportional.
Newtons - N
What is force - F - measured in?
Kilograms - kg
What is mass - m - measured in?
Metres - m
What is length - L/l - measured in?
Metres squared - m2
What is area - A - measured in?
Newtons/centimetre squared - N/cm2
What are the ways pressure - P - are measured in?
760mm of Hg
What is 1 Atmos worth?
On Earth, how many Newtons are equal to a kilogram?
Pressure = Force ÷ Area
How do you work out pressure, force and area?
Solids, liquids and gases
What can pressures be measured for?
Smaller, pressure, surface area, smaller
The _______ the surface area, the greater the _______. The greater the _______, the _______ the pressure.
An ice skate, then a slipper, then a snowshoe.
Which would have the greatest pressure if the same force is put upon it: a slipper, an ice skate, or a snowshoe.
It doubles.
I stand with two feet on the floor. Then I lift one foot up. What happens to the pressure?
How do hydraulic brakes work?
The car brake is pressed. A piston puts pressure on brake fluids in Cylinder A. This increases the pressure on the trapped brake fluid. The fluid in cylinder B has the same pressure and pu…
The bottom hole, then the middle hole, then the top hole.
There is a full bottle of water with three small holes aligned vertically on its side. Water comes out of each hole. Which hole shoots water the furthest?
The pressure in a liquid increases with depth.
What happens to pressure in liquids as you get deeper?
A dam is narrower at the top and thicker at the base. Why?
There is more pressure at the base in a liquid, so the dam must be thicker there so it doesn't break.
What is pressure in fluids caused by?
The particles moving in all directions and colliding with things.
The pressure increases.
What happens when a gas is compresses?
What does a hydraulic system do?
It uses a liquid to send to a force from one place to another.
The air pressure decreases.
What happens when we go higher in the atmosphere?
100 000 N/m2
What is the atmospheric pressure at sea level?
Why are we not crushed by air pressure?
There is pressure inside our bodies exactly matching the air pressure outside.
Force per unit area.
What is pressure defined as?
Just do it.
Draw the particles in a solid, liquid and a gas.
Why is upthrust?
An upward force, caused by the difference in pressure from the liquid at the top and bottom of the object.
What does pneumatic mean?
'Connected with air pressure.'
Is it dangerous to heat a closed container?
Yes, as the gas pressure can build up and the container might explode.
