Expert Answer:

Kinetic theory of gases
  • Molecules of matter are in a continuous state of motion. Hence, they possess kinetic energy.
  • The kinetic energy of molecules increases with an increase in temperature and decreases with a decrease in temperature.
  • The molecules of matter always attract each other and the force of attraction between them is known as force of cohesionwhich binds the molecules of a substance together.
  • This force is maximum between the molecules of solids, lesser between the molecules of liquids and least between the molecules of gases.
  • The force of attraction between the different types of molecules is called the force of adhesion.
  • The force of attraction between the molecules (either cohesive or adhesive) is called the intermolecular force of attraction.
  • The space between any two consecutive molecules is called the intermolecular spaceIf the intermolecular force of attraction increases, the intermolecular space decreases, and vice versa.
