PROBLEM 7Q

What is Boyle's law? Explain Boyle's law from the perspective of kinetic molecular theory.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 7Q

Boyle’s Law: It states that, at constant temperature and amount of gas, the volume of a gas is inversely proportional to the pressure.

V , where, Temperature(T) and amount of gas (n) is constant.

Boyle’s Law can be explained by Kinetic molecular theory. The pressure of a gas in a container depends on the number of times per second that the molecules strike the surface of the container. When we compress the gas to a smaller volume, the same number of molecules are now acting against a smaller surface area. Thus, in small volume increases the molecular collision with the walls of container which increases the pressure of gas.
