9.5 The KineticMolecular Theory Sunday, January 3, 2016 10:10 PM The kinetic molecular theory (KMT) is a simple microscopic model that effectively explains the gas laws. Based on the five postulates: o Gases are composed of molecules that are in continuous motion, travelling in straight lines and changing direction only when they collide with other molecules or with the walls of a container o The molecules composing the gas are negligibly small compared to the distances between them. o The pressure exerted by a gas in a container results from collisions between the gas molecules and the container walls. o Gas molecules exert no attractive or repulsive forces o
