    Hello, I was just wondering if anybody knows if a lot of kinetic molecular theory of gases is on the DAT? I am aware that Daltons, Boyles, and Charles are essential, but how about stuff like the root mean square speeds or non-ideal gases (Van der Waals). I am pressed for time and was hoping someone could tell me if this is really important for the test.

    know that gases deviate from ideal gas eqn at high pressure and/or low temperature. don't both memorizing van der waals eqns.

    i've never heard of v(rms) being tested, but i would memorize it just in case. it's just a simple formula...

    good luck, jb!:)

    Yea, just know it! It wont take that long to memorize those concepts!! But if you are really pressed for time then just let it go!
