Kinetic theory states that as matter is heated its atoms move faster and the mater's bonds break. The water changes into vater vapor a gas. Then because of gay-lussac's law of ideal gasses shows that as a gas is heated the presure increases if the same nuber of moles are present, so the lid on the pot "pops out" because of the pressure of the gas in the pot.

Is the ability to do work kinetic or potiencial energy?

Kinetic energy is movement, Potential energy is stored energy, and so it doesn't really apply to any of them...


Does the kinetic theory of matter relate to solids liquids and gases?

Kinetics apply to all matter(or actually anything with mass), regardless of the state that matter is currently in. Think of it like this, a drop of water, and an ice cube are both dropped from the roof of a building. They are the same matter but in different states. Because they are both moving, both have kinetic energy regardless of being in different states.


Who was one of the first people to suggest that matter is made up of particles that can't be divided?

The Greek philosopher Leucippus, and his student Democritus, were among the proponents of a smallest indivisible portion of matter, around the 5th century BC. English chemist John Dalton (1766-1844) was the first to apply atomic theory to chemistry, explaining how and why elements and compounds interact as they do.


Can you give me a science trivia about matter and energy?

Energy cannot be made or destroyed only changed from one energy to another. e.g in a car when you are moving you are producing kinetic energy but when you apply the brakes to slow down you are changing the kinetic energy to heat energy through the brakes.


What will happen if you apply pressure on ice?

as ice will come in contact with the substance, it will come in direct contact with its heat thus increasing the kinetic energy of the molecules . this results in melting of ice.

Apply the kinetic theory to describe the motion of particles in a homogeneous mixture of sugar and water as it is boiled?

The kinetic theory states that as you heat up something, the molecules of it start to move faster. This means that the molecules will be spread further apart. As you heat up sugar water, the water will turn into water vapor and leave the sugar behind.


Do most gases obey the Kinetic Molecular Theory?

No, actually none do. Most apply to some of the traits of the KMT at STP. (standard temperature and pressure) or 1 atm and 273 K
