For each of these questions, assume that a theoretical gas behaves perfectly according to kinetic molecular theory.

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.

  1. 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?
  2. If you were to cool the gas to absolute zero (no temperature), what would the speed of each of the gas particles be?
  3. If one gas particle bounces off another gas particle, how much energy does each one lose?
  4. What sort of molecular interactions occur between molecules of gas?
