plus-circle Add Review. comment. Reviews. The kinetic theory of gases deals not only with gases in thermodynamic equilibrium, but also very importantly with gases not in thermodynamic equilibrium. This means using Kinetic Theory to consider what are known as "transport properties", such as viscosity, thermal conductivity and mass diffusivity.

This book deals with the classical kinetic theory of gases. Its aim is to present the basic principles of this theory within an elementary framework and from a more rigorous approach based on the Boltzmann equation. The subjects are presented in a self-contained manner such that the readers can.

In gases, the molecules interact weakly, so the microscopic behavior of gases is relatively simple, and they serve as a good introduction to systems of many molecules.

The molecular model of gases is called the kinetic theory of gases and is one of the classic examples of a molecular model that explains everyday behavior. A kinetic theory of gases and liquids The main object of this book is to formulate a Kinetic Theory of certain properties of matter, which shall apply equally well to matter in any state.

This book introduces physics students and teachers to the historical development of the kinetic theory of gases, by providing a collection of the most important contributions by Clausius, Maxwell and Boltzmann, with introductory surveys explaining their significance/5(4).

INTRODUCTION Boyle discovered the law named after him in Boyle, Newton and several others tried to explain the behaviour of gases by considering that gases are made up of tiny atomic particles. The actual atomic theory got established more than years later. Kinetic theory explains the behaviour of gasesFile Size: KB.

Kinetic theory is the atomic description of gases as well as liquids and solids. It models the properties of matter in terms of continuous random motion of molecules.

The ideal gas law can be expressed in terms of the mass of the gas’s molecules and \(\bar{v^2}\), the average of the molecular speed squared, instead of the temperature.

This monograph and text was designed for first-year students of physical chemistry who require further details of kinetic theory. The treatment focuses chiefly on the molecular basis of important thermodynamic properties of gases, including pressure, temperature, and thermal energy.

The kinetic-molecular theory (kmt) is a theory of ideal gases; can be used to deduce the properties of gases; can be applied to other systems such as free electrons in a metal; is sometimes called the molecular-kinetic theory (mkt) Postulates All matter is composed of particles (molecules in general, but also atoms, ions, and free electrons).
