Boyle's law and the rest had to be discovered before the

kinetic theory of gases became possible.

When the virial theorem is applied to a self-gravitating gaseous mass, wherein the

kinetic theory of gases has been used to insert temperature dependence [10-12], it is well-established ([13], [14, see Eq.

Traditional stability methods are based on the application of mathematical models that come from the

kinetic theory of gases to wide variety of liquid, semisolid, and solid drug products.

I found, while teaching mechanics of continuous media, elasticity, and fluid dynamics, my students listened eagerly as I told them something about atomic structure of the materials and

kinetic theory of gases. I wonder how many engineering students obtain a picture of entropy, chemical reaction, and the like from a modern point of view.

Coverage begins with gas laws,

kinetic theory of gases, and the laws of thermodynamics, and concludes with photochemistry, intermolecular forces, the solid state, the liquid state, and statistical thermodynamics.

Another point causing difficulties is the so called 'vehicular chaos' that is an analogue to 'molecular chaos' used in the

kinetic theory of gases. The authors investigated such phenomena in their works (Chalons and Goatin 2008; Safanov et al.

Stefan explored many areas in hydrodynamics, optics, acoustics, electricity, magnetism and the

kinetic theory of gases. Among other things, he originated the law that the total radiation from a black body is proportional to the 4th power of its absolute temperature, known as the Stefan-Boltzmann law.
