What characteristic would make a gas non ideal?
An ideal gas has particles with zero volume that have no attractive or repulsive forces between them. Real gases have particles with a definite shape and volume. They also have weak attractive forces to each other. The larger the volume and the stronger the forces, the less ideal the gas will be. ...

Explain how the attractive forces between the particles in a liquid and the equilibrium vapor pressure of that liquid related?
The weaker the intermolecular forces, the easier the liquid evaporates. Higher vapor pressure the faster it evaporates. Thus, the weaker the attractive forces, the higher the vapor pressure and vice versa. ...
Asked in Chemistry, Kinematics
When water molecules at the surface of a pool have reached a level of kinetic energy at which the attractive forces holding them to the liquid can be overcome it is called?
vaporization, specifically evaporation.

How do you explain about gases?
Gases are one of the four states of matter. they have widely spaced molecules, weak attractive forces, most kinetic and thermal energy among the other states of matter. Gases can be compressed. They do not have fixed shape and volume. their particles are arranged in a disorderly manner. ...

A main difference between gravitational and electric forces is that electrical forces?
electric forces can be attractive or repulsive, whereas gravitational forces are only attractive. ...
Asked in Physics, Atoms and Atomic Structure
What are the attractive forces and repulsive forces the exist between two atoms as the atoms move closer together?
The attractive forces between atoms are the electrical forces and the gravitational forces. The Repulsive forces are electrical. ...

Van Der Waals Forces Are Attractive Forces Between Molecules?
Yes the are the least of all intermolecular attractive forces that act between molecules. ...
Unlike in an ideal gas in a real gas A. all particles move in the same direction B. all particles have the same kinetic energy C. the particles cannot diffuse D. particles exert attractive forces?
D. particles exert attractive forces on each other
Asked in Science
What are the characteristic of matter?
Characteristics of matter - Particles of matter are infinitely small; have space between them; are continuously moving; have attractive forces between particles; have an increase in kinetic energy with an increase in temperature. On point 4 - gas particles are considered to have no attractive forces between one another and act totally independently of one another. However, there must be some attractive forces between particles as the pressure increases and/or the temperature decreases of gas would never condense to a liquid. ...
Asked in Chemistry
A description of gases and liquids are?
Gases have neither a definite shape nor a definite volume. Liquids do not have a definite shape, but they DO have a definite volume. Gases have no or little intermolecular forces holding them together, whereas liquids do have substantial intermolecular forces. ...
Electrical and gravitational forces follow similar equations with one main difference?
The main difference in the equations is that electrical forces can be attractive or repulsive, while gravitational forces are always attractive. ...

What is the attractive force between like molecules?
Cohesive force is the attractive force between like molecules. Cohesive forces are also known as intermolecular forces and can also be repulsion forces. ...
