    The kinetic molecular theory of gases was developed to explain aspects of gases such as the volume's direct relationship to temperature and inverse relationship to pressure.

    Some of the KMT assumptions include elastic collisions, increase in motion and pressure with increasing temperature, and lack of attractive forces between molecules.

    Discuss the kinetic molecular theory as it relates to gases on the molecular level.

    Make an analogy for this theory to the macroscopic world (e.g., billiard balls), and discuss how the two differ.

    The following assumptions are made for kinetic molecular theory on the molecular level.

    1. Gases are composed of a large number of particles that behave like hard, spherical objects in a state of constant, random motion.
    2. These particles move in a straight line until they collide with another ...
