Kinetic Molecular View of the Three States Attractive Forces vs. Kinetic Energy Properties Gas Attractive forces are weak relative to kinetic energy. Particles are far apart. A gas has no fixed shape or volume. Liquid Attractive forces are stronger because particles have less kinetic energy. A liquid can flow and change shape, but has a fixed volume. Solid Attractions dominate motion. Particles are fixed in place relative to each other. A solid has a fixed shape and volume.

Diffusion and effusion Diffusion: movement of one gas through another gas. (gases mix spontaneously) (perfume) Effusion: movement of gas particles through a pinhole. The velocity is dependent on the molar mass Gases with different molar mass are moving at different speeds. Relative rate of effusion is described by

Graham’s Law of Effusion Graham’s law of effusion states that the rate of effusion is INVERSELY proportional to the square root of the molar mass. The heavier particles are moving slower. Rate A Rate B = molar mass B molar mass A
