KMT makes three important assumptions, listed below. although the ideal gas model predicted by KMT is generally reliable to about 3 significant figures, some of these caveats can fail. indicated under which conditions each assumption may not be true.

the size of a particle is neglibably small
the average kinetic energy of a particle is proportional to the temperature(in kelvin)
all particles collisions are perfectly elastic

options: very small volume
very large volume
very high pressure
acidic conditions
always true
very low pressure
organic gases
very high temp
gas mixtures
very low temp
