Solution: 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?c. The volume is decreased to 0.5 L.

Problem

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?
c. The volume is decreased to 0.5 L.

Solution

Considering the STP conditions where the initial volume is 1 L then decreases to 0.5 L, problem asks for the effect of decrease in volume on the a. average kinetic energy, b. average velocity and c. frequency of collisions. 

a. Average kinetic energy
