# a gas exerts pressure on the walls of the container?why?how?

The particles of gas are far apart. They have very little force of attraction between then. Thus, they have the highest kinetic energy. Due to this, the particles move with a great speed, hitting the walls of the container.Thus a gas exerts pressure on the walls of the container.

Its easy ! As we know , particles of matter are continuous in nature and particles of gas have a lot of space and negligible force of attraction (cohesion) between them. Therefore, they move the fastest and thus collide with the walls of the container exerting a pressure on the walls of the container.

The Particles in gases are loosely packed and have high kinetic energy and due to this they move with a high speed in random direction due to this random motion of the particle they hit the walls of the container an thus, exert pressure.

particles are loosely packed in gases &have kinetic energy more &due to this they move with high speed in random direction due to this random motion of the particle they hit the walls of the container an thus, exert pressure

Some cells like amoeba have changing shapes. Each cell is living in its own environment and getting different signals that they can act on. It is all about regulation of genes

Thousands words in english that do not have ``A'' in them are one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten and so on...... No mathematical number carries ``A'' in it

Due to high kinetic energy possessed by the gas particles, they randomly move at a high speed within the container.
Due to this random movement, the particles hit each other as well as the walls of the container. The force by which these particles strike the container exerts a pressure on its walls

As the particles/molecules of the gases are loosely packed,due to high kinetic energy,they move with a speed in random direction due to this they exert pressure on the walls of the container.

Particles of gas move randomly in all directions at high speed. As a result, the particles hit each other as well as the walls of container with a force. So, gas exerts pressure on the walls of the container.

The molecules are continually colliding with each other and with the walls of thecontainer. When a molecule collides with the wall, they exert small force on the wall The pressure exerted by the gas is due to the sum of all these collision forces.The more particles that hit the walls, the higher the pressure.

gases move at a high speed they move randomly due this random movement the particles hit each other and also the walls of the container. due to which they exert pressure

The particles of the gases are loosly packed and have high kinetic energy and due to this they move in a high speed in random direction due to this random motion of the particles they hit the walls of the container and thus exerts pressure
