Solution: The temperature of a gas is a measure of a. the kinetic energy of the gas particles. b. the volumes of the gas particles.c. the amount of space between gas particles. d. the number of gas particles.

Problem

The temperature of a gas is a measure of 

a. the kinetic energy of the gas particles. 

b. the volumes of the gas particles.

c. the amount of space between gas particles. 

d. the number of gas particles.

Solution

We´re asked to determine which of the given options defines the temperature of a gas.

Temperature is a measure of thermal energy in a substance, and it’s independent of the amount of matter.


Imagine a container filled with black balls.


The black balls represent individual gas particles.

In each black ball, there are arrows pointing in different directions.
