Which of the following is NOT a postulate of the kinetic molecular theory?
A; the average kinetic energy of the particles is directly proportional to the absolute temp.
B;the forces of attraction and repulsion between the particles are insignificant
C:the moving particles undergo perfectly elastic collisions with the walls of the container
E; all of the above are true
I am going with E: all of the above
Do you agree??

    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.

    How does the kinetic molecular theory help explain the difference between solids, liquids, and gases? Would the answer be basically stating how the theory states the difference of their atom structure? Or is it something else?
