PHY C10: Ideal Gases (Microscopic View)

Now let’s look on the scale of atoms & molecules, in a more in-depth QUANTITATIVE explanation and derivation of these equations:

  • Equation for Gas Pressure
    • Pressure in terms of density
  • Kinetic Energy of a Gas Particle
  • Relationship between Kinetic Energy & Temperature
  • RMS Speed of Gas Particles

This is a long & (slightly boring) one, so stay strong!
