    Kinetic molecular theory.

    1. The KMT does not say that molecules have no mass.

    2. Doubling absolute T doubles the KE..... KE = 3/2RT

    3. 0K cannot be reached. As T approaches 0K, KE approaches 0

    4. KE = 3/2 (8.314 J/molK) x 273.15K = 3406 J/mol


    The average kinetic energy can be expressed in two ways:

    .... KE = 3/2RT

    .... KE = ½mv² ............ KE = ½Mu² ..... where u is the RMS speed

    Which gives rise to ....

    3/2 RT = 1/2 mv²

    3RT = Mu²

    u = √(3RT/M) ........... speed of the molecules is directly proportional to the absolute temperature and inversely proportional to the molar mass

    At absolute zero molecular motion reaches a minimum, not zero (it's a quantum theory thing). Absolute zero cannot be reached, only approached. As absolute zero is approached, matter can become an exotic condensed state.

    #1. B. Kinetic theory does not have mass as a factor.

    #2 C. Kinetic energy is directly proportional to temperature.

    #3 C. All molecular motion stops at 0K.

      Molecular motion reaches a minimum at 0K.  It is no longer accurate to say that all molecular motion stops at absolute zero.
