An increase in the motion of molecules of a gas confined in a metal tank will be observed as an increase in:
Correct Answer: D.both the temperature and pressure of the gas.
The word “kinetic” means movement or motion. An increase in motion means that there is an increase in kinetic energy which we know is directly related to temperature (CHM 4.1.2). When there is an increase in motion, that means there is an increase in the force of the molecules hitting the walls of the container. Pressure is force per unit area (PHY 6.1.2) so the pressure must increase if the motion increases.
The Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) is a test administered by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC). The test is designed to test your knowledge in three specific sections; physical sciences such as physics and general chemistry, biological sciences and organic chemistry, and verbal reasoning.
How Should I Study?
The MCAT is a rigorous exam that requires months of planning in order to achieve a great score. It is recommended that you begin your study schedule 3 months prior to your exam date. In addition to answering our practice MCAT questions each day, read this article regarding studying for the MCAT from home.
Register for the MCAT.
The first question many people ask is, “when should I take the MCAT?” The general guideline is to take the MCAT the year before you plan to enter medical school. For example, the class of 2018 should take the MCAT sometime before or during the spring/summer of 2013. Your basic science coursework should be complete by this point.
