The Postulates of KMT 1) The par*cles are so small compared with the distances between them that the volume of the individual par(cles can be assumed to be negligible ±zero). We ignore the volume of the individual particles and focus of the volume of the container

The Postulates of KMT 2) The par(cles are in constant mo(on . The collisions of the par*cles with the walls of the container are the cause of the pressure exerted by the gas. 2B) These collisions are perfectly elas(c.

The Postulates of KMT 3) The par(cles are assumed to exert no forces on each other; they are assumed neither to a?ract nor to repel each other. The interactions between gas particles are negligible
