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 is the mean square speed). State all the postulates and derive the conclusion that the average translational kinetic energy of a gas molecule is directly proportional to the absolute temperature from the given equation.

I hope you will help in derive the equation atleast..

    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.

    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?
