How is the concept of temperature interpreted by the kinetic theory?

Read the KMT in your text, your notes, or the Internet. I shall be happy to critique your thoughts.

I put .....
Temperature is directly proportional to the average kinetic energy of the molecules.

Is that a complete enough answer or do I need to elaborate>

I think it's ok IF you say absolute temperature. It isn't temperature as oF, or oc but o K (Kelvin).

    Use kinetic molecular theory to explain why approximating ideal behavior (PV=nRT) is fairly accurate only at low pressures and high temperatures. Use several concepts of kinetic molecular theory, not just math, to explain.
