Problem

Which of the following is one of the postulates of the kinetic theory of gases?

 

a. The average kinetic energy of the molecules of a gas depends only on the temperature and is independent of the mass of the molecules or the gas density.

b. A pure gas consists of a large number of identical molecules separated by distances that are large compared with their size

c. Temperature has meaning in a system of gaseous molecules only when their distribution of speeds is the Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution.

d. At constant temperature, the volume of a sample of gas is a liner function of its temperature.

e. The total pressure of a mixture of gases equals the sum of the portial pressures of the individual gases.
