14 The constants a and b are for pure compounds only; values for mixtures, except air, are commonly not available. Diving Physics 33 Adding these new P and V terms to the ideal gas law gives rise to the van der Waals equation for real gases. This equation has also been called the real gas law: (P + an2/V2) (V–nb) = nRT This equation can be used to derive pressure, temperature, volume, and composition predictions for conditions away from STP. At STP, a/V2 approaches zero and b becomes very small compared with V; thus, the van der Waals equation (by substituting 0 for constants a and b) reduces to the ideal gas equation.

Work is expressed as length × force. Examples include footpounds (work done when a force of 1 lb moves an object 1 ft), newton-meters (work done when 1 newton of force moves an object 1 m), and ergs (work done by a force of 1 dyne moving an object 1 cm). Consider two divers of the same size in the water; both are hovering (“weightless”). One has achieved this state by balancing the forces of weight and buoyancy. The other, overweighted, has compensated for this extra weight by inflating a buoyancy compensator.

At this point, although individual gas molecules move at random into and out of solution, there is no net change in gas concentration within the solution. Henry’s law states: The amount of gas that will dissolve into a solution is directly proportional to the partial pressure of that gas and inversely proportional to the absolute temperature. The greater the partial pressure of the gas, the greater the driving force for solution and the greater the amount of gas that will dissolve into solution.
