Indicate which of the following statements regarding the kinetic-molecular theory of gases are correct. For those that are false, formulate a correct version of the statement.
All the molecules of a gas at a given temperature have the same kinetic energy.
We’re being asked if the given statement is correct. If not, we are to provide the correct statement.
Statement: All the molecules of a gas at a given temperature have the same kinetic energy.
According to the kinetic molecular theory of gases, the average kinetic energy of a gas is directly proportional to the temperature of the gas: a higher temperature results in a higher average kinetic energy.
