Kinetic molecular theory
1. The size of a particle is negligibly small
2. The average kinetic energy of a particle is proportional to the temperature in kelvins.
3. The collision of one particle with another (or with the walls of its con- tainer) is completely elastic.
↑ MM → ↑ deviation from ideal gas
MM of He = 4.003 g/mol
MM of Ne = 20.1797 g/mol
MM of Ar = 39.948 g/mol
Which noble gas is expected to show the largest deviations from the ideal gas behavior?
