2 Area of Wall = A Consider gas atoms, each of mass m, in a container. How much momentum is transferred to the wall for one collision? Atoms can collide with the wall of area A. v x = Initial component of velocity v in x direction. mv x = Initial component of momentum along x axis. Atom undergoes elastic collision with wall. After collision, component of momentum along x axis = -mv x The magnitude of the momentum change upon collision = 2mv x The Kinetic Theory of Gases v v x x
