The kinetic theory of gases: a constant Ideal Gas
Assumptions 1. A gas consists of a large number of molecules separated by distances large compared to their size. DeRine a cube box of side L. 2. The molecules have mass – but no volume (negligibly small) PV=nRT V = L3 DeRine a cube box of side L. n = N/NA Now, what can we say about P and/or T? L 3. The molecules do not interact, no attraction and only hard sphere repulsion. L L 4. Molecules are in constant random motion 5. Collisions between molecules and of molecules with the wall are elastic. That is: the velocity change is only a change in sign. What is Pressure? N molecules in the box What is Pressure? L velocity = vx L 1. What is pressure?  vx Consider one molecule moving in one dimension L v
The molecule has x collisions with the walls. L Due to the change in velocity each collision exerts pressure on the wall. Force mass×acceleration
