Which of the following statements related to kinetic-molecular theory of gases is correct for an ideal gas?  There are no attractive or repulsive forces between and among gas particles.  Gas particles move slowly in a chaotic pattern until they collide with something.  For a given amount of gas, the smaller the volume of the container, the fewer the collisions that occur with the container walls, since there is less surface area.  The density of a gas is somewhat lower than that of a liquid.  The more gas particles there are in a container, the more frequently they collide with one another, so the particles stick together, resulting in a lower pressure.

Which of the following statements related to kinetic-molecular theory of gases is correct for an ideal gas?

 There are no attractive or repulsive forces between and among gas particles. Gas particles move slowly in a chaotic pattern until they collide with something. For a given amount of gas, the smaller the volume of the container, the fewer the collisions that occur with the container walls, since there is less surface area. The density of a gas is somewhat lower than that of a liquid. The more gas particles there are in a container, the more frequently they collide with one another, so the particles stick together, resulting in a lower pressure.

Step 1

The Kinetic molecular theory of gases is a model that explains experimental observation about the gases under the normal temperature and pressure conditions encounter in the environment

Given:

• There are no attractive or repulsive forces between and among gas particles.
• Gas particles move slowly in a chaotic pattern until they collide with something.
• For a given amount of gas, the smaller the volume of the container, the fewer the collisions that occur with the container walls, since there is less surface area.
• The density of a gas is somewhat lower than that of a liquid.
• The more gas particles there are in a container, the more frequently they collide with one another, so the particles stick together, resulting in a lower pressure.
Step 2

Kinetic-molecular theory of gases for an ideal gas is:

• Gases are composed of small and widely separated particles
• Particles of a gas behave independently of one another
• Each particle in a gas is in rapid, straight-line motion, until it collides with

another molecule or with its con...
