What are the four parts of the kinetic theory of gases?
- No energy is gained or lost when molecules collide.
- The molecules in a gas take up a negligible (able to be ignored) amount of space in relation to the container they occupy.
- The molecules are in constant, linear motion.
Keeping this in consideration, what are the main tenets of the kinetic molecular theory of gases?
What are the 5 parts of the kinetic molecular theory?
- Gases consist of large numbers of tiny particles that are far apart relative to their size.
- Collision between gas particles and between particles and container walls are elastic collisions.
- Gas particles are in continuous motion.
- There are no forces of attraction between gas particles.
What are the basic assumptions of the kinetic molecular theory of gases?
