1,607 words1. State the five assumptions of the Kinetic-Molecular Theory of gases. a) Gases consist of large numbers of tiny particles. These particles, usually molecules or atoms, typically occupy a volume about 1000 times larger than occupied by the same number of particles in the liquid or solid state. Thus molecules of gases are much further apart than those of liquids or solids. Most of the volume occupied by a gas is empty space. This accounts for the lower density of gases compared to liquids and so...
