Gaseous and Liquid States Revision Notes For Faster and Better JEE Advanced 2023 Preparation
Gaseous and Liquid States, a fundamental chapter of Physical Chemistry introduces students to different liquid and gaseous states of matter and is very crucial for the students to develop a strong conceptual foundation. Gases and liquids are considered fluids. Their behaviour is entirely different from the solids. To understand their physical properties in accordance with the gas laws, refer to the Gaseous and Liquid States revision notes.
These notes have been formulated by the top subject experts at Vedantu. They have defined a simpler version of the explanation given in this section of Physical Chemistry to help you revise the fundamental concepts faster and better.

FAQs on JEE Advanced 2023 Revision Notes for Chemistry Gaseous and Liquid States
1. What is the prime difference between fluids and solids?
Solids do not flow on their own from one point to the other but fluids do. The molecules of a solid are packed very close to each other. This is why the free flow of such particles is not possible. On the other hand, molecules in fluids are loosely packed due to a lack of intermolecular force of attraction. This results in their free flow.
2. How is the average kinetic energy of gases related to temperature?
As per the kinetic molecular theory of gases, the average kinetic energy of gas molecules is directly proportional to the temperature of the system. The higher the temperature the higher the average kinetic energy of the gas molecules.
3. How can we define pressure in a gas?
The collision of gas molecules with the walls is defined as the pressure of a gas.
4. Is a mixture of gases in a container homogenous?
According to Graham’s Law of diffusion, gases in a container distribute equally forming a homogenous mixture.
