Gas Laws I


The description of gas laws that govern the behavior of the refrigerant used in an air conditioning system, the contributions of well known scientists such as Robert Boyle, Jacques Charles and John Dalton in the creation of these laws.

Upon completion of this module you will understand how to:

1. Name the three men who established fundamental gas laws that govern the actions and reactions of refrigerants.
2. Explain the concepts of Temperature, Pressure, and Volume.
3. State Charles' Law for a constant volume process, and use it to solve problems involving gases.
4. State Charles' Law for a constant pressure process, and use it to solve problems involving gases.
5. State Boyle's Law
6. Explain how Boyle's Law can be used to solve problems involving gases.
7. Use the general gas law to solve problems involving gases.
