# Problem: Newton had an incorrect theory of gases in which he assumed that all gas molecules repel one another and the walls of their container. Thus, the molecules of a gas are statically and uniformly distributed, trying to get as far apart as possible from one another and the vessel walls. This repulsion gives rise to pressure.Explain why Charles's law argues for the kinetic-molecular theory and against Newton's model.

###### FREE Expert Solution

In Newton's model, he did not provide an explanation of the effect of temperature on the pressure of the gas at constant volume and/or the volume of gas at constant pressure.
