How does gas molecules inside a tire exert pressure on the walls of the tire?
is it because the particles hit each other and the tyre surface??? dont rely on this answer though
Gas molecules are in a state of perpetual motion and the pressure is a equivalent measurement of the total force caused by collision of the gas molecules with the wall of the tire per unit area of the tire.
A gas exerts pressure because it pushes on the walls of its container and the other gas molecules in the sample. Molecular collisions between the gas molecules and those in the walls of the container are the means by which a force is exerted. The gas molecules move so fast that all of the collisions average out over time to create a constant pressure.
What does the constant collision of gas molecules against the inside walls of a container produce A Temperature Bdensity C Pressure Ddiffusion?
The pressure(force per unit area) exerted by the weight of air on anything. If you carry a school bag you feel pressure on your shoulders. The air above you in atmosphere also has weight and its exerting pressure on you everyday. Air is a mixture of gases and its molecules are in constant rapid motion. If we put air inside a container the molecules collide with the container walls and exert force on them. This…
