Conceptual Kinetic Theory Objectives Describe how the kinetic-molecular theory is used to explain how gases behave at different temperatures. (Exploration 1) Analyze data that shows how gas particle mass affects that gas’s behavior. (Exploration 2) Describe the Maxwell-Boltzmann Distribution. (Explorations 1 and 2) Description of Activity The kinetic-molecular theory states that a collection of gas molecules’ average kinetic energy has a specific value at any given temperature. In this activity, you will study how temperature and gas particle mass affect the frequency distribution of gas particle speeds. You will examine and analyze speed frequency distribution graphs. This distribution is called the Maxwell-Boltzmann Distribution. Jump Start 1. What is kinetic energy ? The work needed to accelerate a body of a given mass from rest to its stated velocity 2. What is thermal energy? The kinetic energy of a system's constituent particles, which may be atoms, molecules, electrons, or particles in plasmas 3. What happens to a gas’s thermal energy as that gas’s temperature increases? Increased
