An ideal gas is made up of gas particles that have what properties?
Jul 29, 2018
The properties of an ideal gas are:
- An ideal gas consists of a large number of identical molecules.
- The volume occupied by the molecules themselves is negligible compared to the volume occupied by the gas.
- The molecules obey Newton's laws of motion, and they move in random motion.
- The molecules experience forces only during collisions; any collisions are completely elastic, and take a negligible amount of time.
