The behaviour of gases is described in terms of the kinetic theory, which considers the motion of molecules in the gas. The gas law links pressure, volume and temperature.
If the temperature of a fixed mass of gas increases, what happens to the average kinetic energy of the particles in the gas?
It remains the same
What is in Kelvin?
What temperature scale must be used in calculations relating to the Gas Laws?
If the temperature of a gas is , what is its temperature in ?
A fixed volume of gas is cooled from to . What is the temperature change, , in Kelvin?
of Helium gas stored at a pressure of in a cylinder is released to fill a party balloon. What is the pressure of the gas inside the balloon?
The pressure in a bike tyre at room temperature ( or ) is . At what temperature will its pressure drop to ?
A beachball with a volume of is taken from a room at ( ) and placed in a freezer at ( ), making it shrink.
What is the volume of the frozen beachball?
