Question

The pressure exerted by the gas is because of:


  1. particles of gas hitting each other.

  2. particles of gas hitting the walls of the containers.

  3. gas particles have less inter molecular force between them.

  4. particles of gas being highly compressible.


Solution

The correct option is B

particles of gas hitting the walls of the containers.


Since particles of a gas move in every possible direction, they continuously collide with other particles and also with the walls of the container. 

When the particles hit the wall, they exert a force on the wall of the container. This force, when divided by area, gives pressure.
