1. Newton had postulated that when particles collide with a surface, they lose their normal component of velocity. If this were true, and a gas in contact with a wall had equilibrium random motion of particles (12mc2¯=32kT)image, determine the relationship of wall pressure with number density (n) and temperature (T).
2. Pressure is related to the flux of momentum to a wall (area). Suppose that a wall material in contact with a gas reflected the molecules with ½ of the incoming normal ()image velocity component. Evaluate the energy ...
