For each of these questions, assume that a theoretical gas behaves perfectly according to kinetic molecular theory. Keep in mind that this is a theoretical gas, and you will be making the assumptions you need to make under KMT; in real life, of course, these assumptions won't be exactly true.

- If you were to cool the gas to absolute zero and compress all of the particles together, what would the volume of the particles be?
- If you were to cool the gas to absolute zero (no temperature), what would the speed of each of the gas particles be?
- If one gas particle bounces off another gas particle, how much energy does each one lose?
- What sort of molecular interactions occur between molecules of gas?
