What are the 4 components of the kinetic molecular theory?

There are three main components to kinetic theory:
  • No energy is gained or lost when molecules collide.
  • The molecules in a gas take up a negligible (able to be ignored) amount of space in relation to the container they occupy.
  • The molecules are in constant, linear motion.

People also ask, how does kinetic molecular theory define gases?

The kinetic molecular theory can be used to explain each of the experimentally determined gas laws. The Link Between P and n. The pressure of a gas results from collisions between the gas particles and the walls of the container. Each time a gas particle hits the wall, it exerts a force on the wall.
