# What occurs when gas is squeezed into a smaller space?

## What occurs when gas is squeezed into a smaller space?

If we apply pressure on gases ( i.e. squeeze them into smaller space ) below the critical point They get CONVERTED into LIQUID STATE. It because when we compress them there molecules come near, develop bonds and build up stronger intermolecular force thus, forming Liquids.

### Can air can be compressed pushed into a smaller space?

Since there is a lot of “empty” space between air molecules, air can be compressed to fit in a smaller volume. Air not only has mass, but exerts pressure as well. The particles of air push in all directions and the force that is exerted is called air pressure.

What can be squeezed into a smaller volume?

This means that gases always spread out in all directions to fill the container into which they are placed. This spreading out of gases to fill all the available space is called diffusion. They can be compressed easily. This means that a given volume of gas can be squeezed into a smaller volume.

Can air be squeezed?

Air can be squeezed into a smaller space; it is compressible.

## Does pressure increase linearly with volume?

Volume and Pressure: Boyle’s Law. When a gas occupies a smaller volume, it exerts a higher pressure; when it occupies a larger volume, it exerts a lower pressure (assuming the amount of gas and the temperature do not change). Since P and V are inversely proportional, a graph of 1/P vs. V is linear.

### What Cannot be condensed into a smaller size?

have a fixed shape and cannot flow, because their particles cannot move from place to place. cannot be compressed (squashed), because their particles are close together and have no space to move into.

What happens if you squeeze a sponge?

The sponge is actually made up of a mixture of solid and gas. When you squeeze it, the solid part changes it shape, but stays the same size. The gas in the holes gets smaller, so the entire sponge takes up less space.

What comes out when you squeeze the sponge?

Children learn that sponges can absorb water and that the water can be released by squeezing the sponge.

## What happens when you squeeze gas into a smaller space?

A gas is compressible, meaning that you can force it into a smaller space. Since the particles themselves cannot change size, you must be reducing the space between them. So you can prove there is a significant amount of space between gas particles imply by compressing the gas. What is it called to squeeze A Gas Into A Smaller Space? to compress it

### What happens when you close a balloon with a plunger?

The air can escape through the opening at the tip of the syringe. But when you close the syringe with your finger the air can’t escape anymore. If you press on the plunger, you increase the pressure of the air and thus the air in the balloon contracts or decreases its volume.

What happens to the pressure of a gas if you decrease the volume?

The gas takes on the size and shape of the container it’s in. So if you make the volume of the container smaller (compress it) the volume of the gas is smaller as well.

Why does a water balloon stay the same size when pulled out?

Although you are compressing the air inside the syringe when pressing on the plunger, the water inside the balloon does not get compressed. The balloon stays the same size. The water balloon also keeps its shape when pulling out the plunger while closing the tip of the syringe.
