Flashcards in Unit 5 -Gases Deck (8)
ideal gas law
where does kelvin temperature start?
what is the kinetic molecular theory?
matter is made up of tiny particles (Atoms ions Molecules)
these particles are in constant motion
explaining the gas state
lots of empty space between particles
particles can vibrate rotate and translate. the higher the temperature the more energy the faster the particles move.
because they are so far apart the attractive forces are a essentially zero they move independent of each other
what is absolute zero?
a theoretical point at which no organisms can survive
