GAS LAWS

Since the atmosphere is a mixture of gases, its behavior is governed by well-defined laws.

Understanding the gas laws enables you to see that the behavior of any gas depends upon the varia-tions in temperature, pressure and density. To assist in comparing different gases and in measuring changes of gases it is necessary to have a standard or constant to measure these changes against. The standard used for gases are: a pressure of 760 millimeters of mercury (1,013.25 mb) and a temperature of 0°C. These figures are sometimes referred to as Standard Temperature and Pressure (STP).

Learning Objective: Recognize how pressure, temperature, and density affect the atmosphere and describe how the gas laws are applied in meteorology.
