The Properties of Gases
In a pneumatic system, compressed air is used to create work. Because compressed air is a gas, it is important to understand how gases behave with changes in pressure, temperature, and volume. There are a few fundamental laws of gases that will help you understand these relationships.
By the end of this course, you will be able to
- Define the three primary states of matter
- Explain how temperature affects the states of matter
- Explain the relationships between the pressure temperature and volume of a gas
- Define pressure
- Define flow
- Describe humidity and how it is measured
- Explain how all of these work together in a pneumatic system
