Question 1

What do you understand by gas?

Answer 1

Gas is a state of matter in which inter particle attraction is weak and inter particle space is so large that the particles become completely free to move randomly in the entire available space.

Question 2

Give the assumptions of the kinetic molecular theory.

Answer 2

  1. Gases are made of tiny particles which move in all possible directions at all possible speeds. The size of molecules is small as compared to the volume of the occupied gas.
  2. There is no force of attraction between gas particles or between the particles and the walls of the container. So, the particles are free to move in the entire space available to them.
  3. The moving particles of gas collide with each other and with the walls of the container. Because of these collisions, gas molecules exert pressure. Gases exert the same pressure in all directions.
  4. There is large inter particle space between gas molecules, and this accounts for high comprehensibility of gases.
  5. Volume of a gas increases with a decrease in pressure and increase in temperature.
  6. Gases have low density as they have large inter molecular spaces between their molecules.
  7. Gases have a natural tendency to mix with one and other because of large inter molecular spaces. So, two gases when mixed form a homogeneous gaseous mixture.
  8. The inter molecular space of a gas is reduced because of cooling. Molecules come closer resulting in liquefaction of the gas.

Question 3

During the practical in the lab when hydrogen sulphide gas having offensive odour is prepared for some test, we can smell the gas even 50 metres away. Explain the phenomenon.

Answer  3

The phenomenon is diffusion. In air, gas molecules diffuse to mix thoroughly. Hence, we can smell hydrogen sulphide gas from a distance in the laboratory.

Question 4

What is diffusion? Give an example to illustrate it.

Answer 4

Diffusion is the process of gradual mixing of two substances, kept in contact, by molecular motion.


If a jar of chlorine is opened in a large room, the odorous gas mixes with air and spreads to every part of the room. Although chlorine is heavier than air, it does not remain at the floor level but spreads throughout the room.

Question 5

How is molecular motion related with temperature?

Answer  5

Temperature affects the kinetic energy of molecules. So, molecular motion is directly proportional to temperature.

Question 6 State

(i) the three variables for gas laws and

(ii) SI units of these variables.

Answer 6

(i) Three variables for gas laws: Volume (V), Pressure (P), Temperature (T)

(ii) SI units of these variables:

For volume: Cubic meter (m3)

and For pressure: Pascal (Pa)

For temperature: Kelvin (K)

Question 7

(a) State Boyle’s Law.

(b) Give its

(i) Mathematical expression

(ii) Graphical representation and

(iii). Significance

Answer  7

(a) Boyle’s law:

At constant temperature, the volume of a definite mass of any gas is inversely proportional to the pressure of the gas.
