Kinetic-Molecular Theory
Based on the ideas that particles of matter are always in motion; can be used to explain the properties of solids, liquids, and gases in terms of the energy of particles and the forces that act between them; assumptions: gases consist of large numbers of tiny particles that are far apart relative to their size; collisions between gas particles and between particles and container walls are elastic collisions, gas particles are in common, rapid, random motion. They therefore possess kinetic energy which is energy of motion; there are no forces of attraction between gas particles; the temperature of a gas depends on the average kinetic energy of the particles of the gas; explain physical properties of gases: gases do not have a definite shape or volume, gases have fluidity, gases have low density, gases diffuse and effuse.
