Problem

Which statement describes a limitation of the kinetic-molecular theory for a gas?

a) The theory assumes that particles do not experience intermolecular forces.
b) The theory states that pressure is inversely proportional to volume.
c) The theory assumes that particles are in random and continuous motion.
d) The theory states that pressure increases with temperature.

Solution

Ideal gases are imaginary and don’t exist. However, The Kinetic-Molecular Theory tries to use data of real gases to predict how an ideal gas would behave if they existed.
