a) Gas particles have grater kinetic energy at higher temperatures, which allows them to move quickly. b) The distance between individual particles of a gas is very great, which allows them to be pushed closer together and still remain in gaseous form. c) Gas particles are positioned far apart from each other, which causes the mass of a gas in a certain volume to be very small, which results in a lower density.
