How does the kinetic-molecular theory help explain the difference between solids, liquids, and gases? I don't know how to really answer this question because the theory only talks about gases, unless I am looking at the wrong one.

The kinetic theory of gases is based on a number postulates from which the equation P= 1/3× N/V×m×µ² is derived (P is the pressure of the gas, N the number of molecules in the container, m the mass of each molecule and µ²

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?

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.
