Kinetic Theory


Some two hundred years ago heat was thought to be an

invisible fluid called caloric, which flowed like water from

hot objects to cold objects. Caloric appeared to be conserved –

that is, it seemed to flow from one place to another without

being created or destroyed. This idea was the forerunner of the

law of conservation of energy.”

Hewitt (1998). Conceptual Physics (8th Ed.) p. 306.

heat is kinetic energy
Heat is Kinetic Energy
  • During the French Revolution Count Von Rumford (Benjamin Thompson) was boring cannons for the Bavarian army and he notice:

“I perceived, by putting my hand into the water and touching the outside of the cylinder that, Heat was generated; … at 2 hours and 30 minutes it (the water) ACTUALLY BOILED…without any fire.”

(Hakim, 2005. The Story of Science: Newton at the Center, p. 318.)

  • The generation of heat was related to the kinetic energy of truing the cannon barrel.
  • Heat is energy and thus has units of Joules.
  • However, heat has a special unit of calorie.
  • A calorie is the heat needed to raise one gram of water by 1Co.
  • 1cal = 4.186J
  • 1kcal = 1000 cals
  • 1Cal (food calorie) = 1000 cals
  • Temperature is a measure of the average kinetic energy of the molecules of a substance.
  • A thermometer measures this KE as the molecules collide with the thermometer’s bulb.
temperature scales freezing point to boiling point of water
Temperature ScalesFreezing point to boiling point of water
  • Fahrenheit: 32 to 212, range of 180 degrees.
  • Celsius: 0 to 100, range of 100 degrees.
  • Kelvin: 273 to 373, range of 100 degrees.

Kelvin Scale
  • At constant pressure the volume of a gas changes by 1/273 of its volume at 0Co with each 1Co change in temperature.
  • At 100Co the volume is 100/273 greater than it is at 0Co.
  • When temperature is reduced to -100Co the volume is reduced by 100/273.
  • At -273 0Co the gas is reduced to 273/273 and the volume is 0.
HeatHeat is the net energy transferred from one object to another because of a temperature difference.

Total Energy Includes:

  • molecular translation form place to place,
  • molecular vibration,
  • molecular rotate.
specific heat
Specific Heat
  • Each substance has its own specific heat.
  • The specific heat of any substance is the amount of heat it takes to raise 1kg of the substance by 1Co.
  • Specific heat of water = 1.000 kcal/kgCo.
  • H = mcDT, Where:

m = mass

c = specific heat

DT = change in temperature.

phases of matter solid
Phases of MatterSolid
  • Molecules arranged in a rigid crystalline structure.
  • Expansion occurs during heating because molecules vibrate with grater amplitude.
phases of matter liquids
Phases of MatterLiquids
  • Molecules not in a lattice.
  • Molecules can vibrate and rotate.
  • Molecules are still close together.
  • Take the shape of container.
phases of matter gas
Phases of MatterGas
  • Molecules relatively far apart.
  • Molecules have high speed of Kinetic Energy.
latent heat
Latent Heat
  • Heat associated with a phase change.
  • Lf = latent heat of fusion
  • H = m Lf = heat needed to melt a substance.
  • Lv = latent heat of vaporization
  • H = m Lv = heat needed to vaporize a substance.

Latent heat of fusion used to bread apart the crystalline lattice of water.

  • At constant temperature pressure is inversely proportional to the volume.
  • p a 1/V where V = volume.

  • The volume of a fixed amount of gas at constant pressure is directly proportional to its absolute (Kelvin) temperature.
  • V = kT

  • Putting all three of these together the Ideal Gas Law is obtained.
  • P a (NT)/V
  • The proportionally can be used to take ratios for calculations.
  • p2/p1 = (V1/V2)(T2/T1) assuming a constant number of molecules, N.
kinetic theory and atoms john dalton 1766 1844
Kinetic Theory and AtomsJohn Dalton (1766 – 1844)
  • All matter is composed of tiny particles.
  • All atoms of each element are identical (he didn’t know about isotopes.)
  • Atoms are not created or destroy in chemical reactions (conservation of matter.)
  • Elements bond in whole ratios to form compounds.
  • Chemical reactions are the union and separation of atoms.
