3.2 Modelling a gas

IB Physics: 3.2 Modelling a gas

In some ways the gaseous state is the most complex. All the particles are moving about in random motion unlike the particles of a solid that have fixed position. However, in terms of energy, gases are the simplest since they only have kinetic energy.This may seem strange since, when a liquid changes to a gas at constant temperature, the heat added goes to increase potential energy (and not kinetic energy)! Remember that...
