Describe a gas and its properties.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

A gas and its properties are to be described.

Concept Introduction:

The process in which two or more bodies exert a force on one another, in a short interval of time is called collision.

A molecule is a substance that is made up of two or more atoms of same or different elements..

Pressure is defined as force per unit area.

Explanation of Solution

Particles of solids or liquids occupy a tiny fraction of the volume of a gas. Gases exert pressure on the energetic gas molecules and the container. Whereas in comparison, molecules in liquids and solids don’t exert pressure...
