For chemistry help, visit www.chemfiesta.com © 2002 Cavalcade Publishing – All Rights Reserved Kinetic Molecular Theory of Gases Worksheet 1) Name the postulates of the kinetic molecular theory and state whether or not you believe they do a good job of describing how real gases behave. 2) Based on the postulates of the kinetic molecular theory, give the conditions of pressure and temperature that you believe would cause a real gas to best simulate an ideal gas. Explain your answer. 3) Avogadro’s Law states that the volume of a gas is directly proportional to the number of moles of gas, but has nothing to do with the identity of the gas. Is this law correct for an ideal gas? Explain. 4) Nowadays, we have a much better idea of how gases behave than when the gas laws were first invented. Explain why we continue to use these laws even though we can get better answers with the information we have today.
