KMT & other stuff

Ch 13 - 14

kinetic molecular theory
Kinetic Molecular Theory
  • States that particles in all forms of matter are in constant motion.
  • Three types of motion: vibration, rotation, and translation
  • Explains the fluidity of gases and liquids and how odors move through the air.
gas model
Gas Model

High energy

No definite shape or volume


Low density

Weak intermolecular forces

five basic assumptions of kinetic theory as it applies to gases p 475
Fivebasic assumptions of kinetic theory as it applies to gases: (p 475)
  • Composed of tiny particles
  • Particles are so small compared to volume of gas that their volume is considered insignificant/negligible.
  • Assume attractive or repulsive forces among particles is negligible
  • Constant random motion with straight paths that change direction after collisions. Avg. Speed 1700km/hr

Collisions are elastic – no energy is lost- it is transferred – total KE is constant at constant temperature

  • Avg KE directly proportional to Kelvin temp.
gas pressure
Gas Pressure
  • Result of collision of particles with each other and walls of container
  • Force per unit of area
  • Smaller container with same amount of gas creates more collisions and greater pressure
  • No gas, no collisions, no pressure =?
  • vacuum
atmospheric pressure
Atmospheric Pressure
  • Collisions of air molecules with objects
  • Barometer – instrument used to measure atmospheric pressure
  • Mercury and aneroid
  • SI unit pascal (Pa) @ sea level 101.3 kPa
  • Also, atmospheres, torrs, mm Hg, & bar (1 bar = 100 kPa)
  • Must relate to STP OoC and 101.3 kPa
ke and kelvin scale
KE and Kelvin Scale
  • Increase average KE = increase in temp.
  • All particles do not have the same KE
  • Some low, medium, & high – mostly med.
  • No KE = 0 Kelvin = absolute zero
  • Kelvin temperature is directly proportional to the average KE of particles EX. He gas at 200K has twice as much KE as particles at 100K
liquid model
Liquid Model
  • Definite volume but no definite shape
  • Attraction among particles (intermolecular forces)
  • Particles have enough energy to change position
  • Motion contributes to average KE
  • To “escape” (become a gas) must absorb enough energy to overcome intermolecular forces

  • Evaporation vs Vaporization not boiling boiling
  • Evaporation is actually a cooling process – particles with highest KE escape thereby decreasing temperature
  • Vapor pressure is created when a liquid is in a sealed container and particles evaporate forming a gas over liquid
Equilibrium reached when the number of particles vaporizing and condensing is the same
  • Increase temp. will increase vapor pressure (more particles have minimum KE)
  • Vapor pressure is measured with a manometer
boiling points
Boiling Points
  • Temperature at which vapor pressure of a liquid equals the external pressure.
  • Why does boiling point for water change with elevation?
  • Normal boiling point = BP at 101.3kPa (at sea level)
  • Boiling, like evaporation, is a sort of cooling process (for the liquid)
solid model
Solid Model
  • Definite shape
  • Definite volume
  • Particles vibrate around a fixed position
  • Particles are usually tightly packed in organized patterns (crystals)
  • Amorphous solids lack internal structure (glass, plastic, rubber)
melting points
Melting Points
  • Temperature at which a solid becomes a liquid
  • Melting and freezing points are the same – just a matter of whether energy is being absorbed or lost
  • Note: not all solids melt – some decompose
phase diagram
Phase Diagram
  • Conditions of temperature and pressure at which a substance exists as solid, liquid, and gas.


  • Assumes Volume
  • of Container
  • Compressible
  • Diffuses Rapidly

Takes Shape of Container

  • Definite Shape



  • Does Not
  • Flow

Flows Readily

  • Diffuses
  • Extremely
  • Slowly


  • Viscosity
  • Surface Tension
  • Diffuses Slowly


Exothermic – heat (energy) released
  • Endothermic – heat (energy) absorbed
  • Is boiling endo or exo?
  • Is melting endo or exo?
terms you need to know
Terms you need to know
  • Volatile – a substance that vaporizes readily – why?
  • low intermolecular forces

Diffusion – mixing due to molecular motion

Viscosity – resistance to flow

Surface tension – tendency of a liquid to maintain a minimum surface area (high intermolecular forces)
