With the expansion of exploration for oil and gas in offshore regions during the 1970s, there was much concern regarding the environmental effects of future development. The Kinetic Molecular Theory of Gases begins with five postulates that describe the behaviour of molecules in a gas. These postulates are based upon some simple, basic scientific notions, but they also involve some simple assumptions. In reading a postulate, do two things. First, try to understand and appreciate the basic physical idea embodied in the postulate; this idea will ultimately be important in understanding the macroscopic properties of the gas in terms of the behaviour the microscopic molecules making up the gas. Second, identify possible weakness or flaws in the postulates. Inaccurate predictions by a theory derive from flawed postulates used in the derivation of the theory. The gas laws developed by Boyle, Charles, and Gay-Lussac are based upon empirical observations and describe the behaviour of a gas in macroscopic terms, that is, in terms of properties that a person can directly observe and experience. An alternative approach to understanding the behaviour of a gas is to begin with the atomic theory, which states that all substances are composed of a large number of very small particles (molecules or atoms). In principle, the observable properties of gas (pressure, volume, temperature) are the consequence of the actions of the molecules making up the gas. The ultimate purpose of this book is to develop recommendations for the design of research and monitoring program to quantify and evaluate the significance of Gas Kinetics and Gas Dynamics development activities. It is intended that the book will prove to be a useful compendium to the students, teachers and researchers in this field.
