## Surface Tension

Definition of Surface Tension The force acting per unit length on the surface of a liquid at right angle direction is called surface tension Explanation: Consider a liquid is present in a beaker. The molecules inside the liquid are surrounded by the other molecules of the liquid. So the force of attraction on a molecule …

## Viscosity

Definition The internal resistance in the flow of a liquid is called viscosity. Liquids have the ability to flow, but different liquids have different rates of flow. Some liquids like honey mobil oil etc. flow slowly and are called viscous liquids while ether, gasoline etc. which flow quickly are called less viscous. Explanation: This concept …

## Dalton’s Law Of Partial Pressure

About Dalton’s Law Of Partial Pressure In 1801, Dalton’s found that when two or more gases are placed in same container,this observation is summarized in Dalton’s Law Of Partial Pressure Statement The total pressure of a gaseous mixture is the sum of the partial pressure, exerted by each of the gases present in the mixture …

## Graham’s law of diffusion

About Graham’s law of diffusion In 1833, Graham established a relation ship between the rate of diffusion of gases and their densities which is terms as Graham’s law of diffusion. Statement The rates of diffusion of gases are inversely proportional to the square root of their densities under same condition of temperature and pressure Mathematic …

## General Gas Equation

About General Gas Equation General Gas Equation is also termed as Ideal Gas Equation To give a relation between the volume, pressure and number of moles of n gas, Boyle’s law, Charle’s law and Avogadro’s law are used. According to Boyle’s law | V ∞ 1 / P According to Charle’s law | V ∞ …
