Ideal gas

  1. Dec 6, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    If you increase the temperature of an ideal gas, then
    a. the average distance a molecule travels between collisions must increase
    b. the pressure must increase
    c. the speed of its molecules must increase
    d. the average time between collisions of its molecule must increase
    e. the volume must increase

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I think the correct selection is choice C because while the other selections are possible only the energy is solely related to the temperature?
