According to the kinetic molecular theory of gases:
average kinetic energy of a gas → directly proportional to the temperature of the gas
average speed → directly proportional to the temperature of the gas
Consider a 1.0-L container of neon gas at STP. Will the average kinetic energy, average velocity, and frequency of collisions of gas molecules with the walls of the container increase, decrease, or remain the same under each of the following conditions?
a. The temperature is increased to 100°C.
