When An Ideal Gas Is Compressed Adiabatically Its Temperature Rises The Molecules On The Average Have More Kinetic Energy Than Before The Kinetic Energy Increases

When an ideal gas is compressed adiabatically, its temperature rises the molecules on the … of redistribution of energy amongst the…


(a) Since the gas is ideal and the collisions of the molecules are elastic. When the molecules collides with the moving parts of the wall, its kinetic energy increases. But the total kinetic energy of the system will remain conserved. When the gas is compressed adiabatically, the total work done on the gas increases, its internal energy which in turn increases the KE of gas molecules and hence, the collisions between molecules also increases.
