How does kinetic molecular theory explain gas laws?
Kinetic molecular theory explains the gas laws in terms of the collisions of the molecules with the walls of the container.
Compressing a gas makes the
The average kinetic energy
AMONTON’S LAW or Gay-Lussac’s Law:
As the temperature of a gas increases, so does the average kinetic energy of its particles. The particles collide with the container walls more frequently and with greater force. Therefore, the pressure increases as the temperature increases.
