HC Verma Book Vol 2 Chapter 2 Kinetic Theory of Gases is authored by Harish Chandra Verma a retired professor from IIT Kanpur. Kinetic Theory of Gases is one of the important concepts in physics which students need to master and be familiar with. This theory was established in the 19th century by Austrian physicist Ludwig Boltzmann and British scientist James C Maxwell. Besides, in this chapter of the HC Verma book students will study the microscopic behaviour of molecules and their interactions. They will further learn about the macroscopic properties of gas like thermal conductivity, volume, viscosity, temperature, humidity, vapour, evaporation and pressure in accordance with the kinetic theory.
Additionally, the chapter contains exercise problems that are based on Boyle’s law, Charles’s law, Gay Lussac’s law, Avogadro’s law, Perfect gas equation, Van der Waals’ gas equation, the Kinetic energy of a gas, Degree of freedom, Brownian motion, etc. Practising these solutions will help students improve their problem-solving approach to complex questions on the Kinetic Theory of Gases. To aid students in their preparation, we are providing free HC Verma solutions for this chapter. The solutions contain detailed and accurate answers to all the exercise given in chapter 2. Students can refer the solutions and learn the right way to solve questions.
