Unformatted text preview: Physics for Scientists and Engineers, 6e Chapter 21 The Kinetic Theory of Gases Two containers hold an ideal gas at the same temperature and pressure. Both containers hold the same type of gas but container B has twice the volume of container A. The average translational kinetic energy per molecule in container B is 1 2 3 4 25% 25% 25% 25% 1 2 3 4 5 1. twice that for container A 2. the same as that for container A 3. half that for container A 4. impossible to determine The average translational kinetic energy per molecule is a function only of temperature. Two containers hold an ideal gas at the same temperature and pressure. Both containers hold the same type of gas but container B has twice the volume of container A. The internal energy of the gas in container B is 1 2 3 4 25% 25% 25% 25% 1 2 3 4 5 1. twice that for container A 2. the same as that for container A 3. half that for container A 4. impossible to determine Because there are twice as many molecules and the temperature of both containers is the same, the total energy in B is twice that in A.same, the total energy in B is twice that in A....
