Obtain standard gas equation with the help of kinetic theory of gases.


Expert Answer

Step 1


Gases are composed of small molecules and each molecules of the gases behave as point mass.

The interacting molecules do not exert force on each except at the time of collision.

Collision among gas molecules are perfectly elastic.

The wall of the container is rigid and perfectly elastic.

Step 2

Form kinetic theory of gases the pressure experience by the wall due to the molecules n1 per unit volume having velocity v1 is:
