header-bg qa

 In an ideal gas at temperature T, the average force that a molecule applies on the walls of a closed container depends on T as Tq. A good estimate for q is :

  • Option 1)


  • Option 2)


  • Option 3)


  • Option 4)

As we learnt in

Pressure of a gas -

P= \frac{1}{3}mn< v^{2}>

- wherein

m = mass of a molecule

n = number of molecule /volume

< v2 > = Rms velocity


 Force \alpha \frac{\alpha P}{dt} (Rate of change of momentum)


L is length of container  and v2 is mean square velocity 

v^{2}\alpha\ T

\therefore\ \;F \alpha\ T
