The kinetic energy of gas molecules is directly proportional to changes in temperature. When temperature increases, the kinetic energy of the gas molecules also increases; conversely, when the temperature decreases, the ... More »

An organic molecule is typically a compound that contains carbon atoms bonded together in chains or rings. Organic molecules are found in living systems and may also contain nitrogen, sulfur, oxygen, and hydrogen bonded ... More »

The main difference between polar molecules and nonpolar molecules lies in the arrangement of atoms in the molecule. Additionally, polar molecules have an electrical field charge, while nonpolar molecules do not possess ... More »

The three factors that affect gas pressure are the number of gas molecules, the volume of the container and the temperature of the container that contains the gas. If there are two equal-sized containers, and one contain... More »

The average molecular speed of a gas depends on the kinetic temperature and mass of the molecules that comprise the gas. For a given molecular or molar mass and temperature, the speed is given by the Maxwell-Boltzmann ve... More »

The three main points of the kinetic theory of matter are all matter consists of molecules and atoms; these molecules and atoms are constantly in motion; and as the temperature increases, the speed of the particles, and ... More »

The graph of Charles Law is a graph describing how the volume of a gas changes with respect to its temperature and where the volume is a linear function of the temperature. When the temperature of gas is given in units o... More »
