Gases and kinetic molecular theory

Properties of gases can be modeled using some relatively simple equations, which we can relate to the behavior of individual gas molecules. We will learn about the ideal gas law, vapor pressure, partial pressure, and the Maxwell Boltzmann distribution.

The ideal gas law works well for gases at standard temperature and pressure. In this tutorial, we will discuss the assumptions made when using the ideal gas equation, and what happens when gases are not at standard temperature and pressure.
