The distinction of gases from liquids
and solids
1. Gas volume changes greatly with pressure.
2. Gas volume changes greatly with
temperature.
3. Gases have relatively low viscosity.
4. Most gases have relatively low densities
under normal conditions.
5. Gases are miscible.

the laboratory when calcium carbide (CaC2) reaction with water:
CaC2(s) + 2H2O(l)
C2H2(g) + Ca(OH)2(aq)
For a sample of acetylene that is collected over water, the total
gas pressure (adjusted to barometric pressure) is 98.32 kPa and

Postulates of the Kinetic-Molecular Theory
Postulate 1: Particle Volume
Because the volume of an individual gas particle is so
small compared to the volume of its container, the gas
particles are considered to have mass, but no volume.
Postulate 2: Particle Motion
Gas particles are in constant, random, straight-line
motion except when they collide with each other or with
the container walls.
Postulate 3: Particle Collisions
Collisions are elastic therefore the total kinetic
energy(Ek) of the particles is constant.
