Introduction There are five states of matter and gas is one of them. Empty spaces are filled by gases. The atmosphere is full of gas molecules. It contains different gas molecules. The oxygen gas molecule which is necessary for breathing is also in our atmosphere along with many other gas molecules. Every matter in the universe is composed of tiny particles called molecules. They attract each other with some attractive force. There exists an intermolecular force of attraction between molecules. Based on the force of attraction between the molecules, matters are classified into five categories. They are solid, ... Read More

Introduction This gaseous theory describes the behavior of the gases contained in some vessels. The particles which are molecules or gases are always in random motion as they continuously move and collide with each other and collide with the container also. Also, there is some pressure and temperature within the container. The path acquired by molecules is straight and the path is known as the mean free path. after the collision, molecules collide with other molecules instantaneously and thus there is always velocity maintained. Kinetic Theory of Gases Gas contains a very huge number of particles whose size is negligible ... Read More

Introduction In our daily life, we commonly observe the motion of the air molecules when a light ray enters the dark through a small hole. the motion of air molecules is studied by the kinetic theory. With the help of the kinetic theory of various properties of the gas can be defined in terms of the pressure(P)and volume(V) as well as temperature(T) of the container where the gas is present. Tiny particles do not move in an upward or downward direction but they can move in all possible directions. We can’t see these particles as their size is very small ... Read More
