Kinetic theory o gases

Frae Wikipedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search
The temperatur o an ideal monatomic gas is proportional tae the average kinetic energy o its atoms. The size o helium atoms relative tae thair spacin is shawn tae scale unner 1950 atmospheres o pressur. The atoms hae a certain, average speed, slawed doun here twa trillion fayld frae room temperatur.

The kinetic theory describes a gas as a lairge nummer o submicroscopic pairticles (atoms or molecules), aw o which are in constant rapid motion that haes randomness arisin frae thair mony collisions wi each ither an wi the waws o the conteener.
