FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

1. What is the Gas Law? Name Three Gas Laws.

Ans. Laws which help to relate the pressure, temperature and volume of a gas are defined as gas laws. The 3 of the most important gas laws are - Boyle’s Law, Charles’ Law and Avogadro’s Law. 

2. What is the Kinetic Theory of Gas?

Ans. It is a model that is based on a simple molecular description of gas and helps to understand the properties of gases right at the molecular level.  It is based on a few concepts, including the one that states gases comprise particles which are always in random motion. 

3. What is Kinetic Energy? Provide Examples.

Ans. It is the energy which is closely associated with the movement of objects. Typically, an object’s kinetic energy is dependent on its mass and velocity, (wherein, the latter is more important).  Example: A moving aeroplane has a substantial kinetic energy because of its large mass and fast velocity.
