Theories and Laws (Chapter Ten) Vocabulary Kinetic-molecular theory based on the idea that particles of matter are always in motion Ideal gas an imaginary gas that perfectly fits all the assumptions of the kinetic-molecular theory Kinetic-molecular theory of gases based on this assumption gases consist of large numbers of tiny particles that are far apart relative to their size Kinetic-molecular theory of gases based on this assumption Collisions between gas particles and between particles and container walls are elastic collisions Elastic collision one in which there is no net loss of kinetic energy Kinetic-molecular theory of gases based on this assumption gas particles are in continuous, rapid, random motion. they therefore possess kinetic energy, which is energy of motion Kinetic-molecular theory of gases based on this assumption there are no forces of attraction or repulsion between gas particles Kinetic-molecular theory of gases based on this assumption
