    Gas Laws

    Equation 1: p = 1/3 d<c^2> (p is pressure, d is density, <c^2> is mean squared speed) The law of pressures states that for a fixed mass of an ideal gas at a constant volume, the pressure is proportional to the kelvin temperature. Explain qualitatively how this law follows from equation 1. I...

    Satellite Motion and Electric Fields

    The period T of an earth satellite is related to the radius R of its orbit by the equation T^2 = A R^3 where A is a constant. The moon may be assumed to move in a circular orbit of radius RM about earth. The period of the moon's orbit is 28 days. The radius of the orbit of a geostationary...

    Kinetic Theory

    hmm, i was just thinking that if there were no forces between the molecules, then they would not accelerate as they approach / move away from one another so the magnitude of their velocity is constant therefore their kinetic energy is constant? also, about my first question, the law of...

    Kinetic Theory

    thank you, and no i'm not your girlfriend checkin up on you :rofl: much appreciated ooh, i have in my notes that the two components of internal energy are kinetic energy and potential energy.

    Kinetic Theory

    In the kinetic theory, it is supposed that the molecules make elastic collisions with the walls of the container. Imagine that the collisions were inelastic. Describe and explain the consequence of this with regard to the temperature of the gas. So far, i have said that not all of the molecules...
