Question

What does the kinetic theory state about the kinetic energy of gas molecules?

2 Answer

  • The kinetic energy of gas molecules is directly proportional to the Kelvin temperature of the gas
  • Explanation:

    The kinetic theory states about the gas molecules are in constant motion.

    The molecules of the gas exhibit perfectly elastic collision.

    The kinetic energy of the molecules of the gas is directly proportional to the absolute temperature.

    The lighter molecules move faster than the heavier molecules.

    The particles of a gas are point masses. They have no volume.

    The pressure is exerted by the gas molecules due to the collision on the wall of the container.
