## What would happen to the temperature of a gas if the volume were increased?

This means that the volume of a gas is directly proportional to its Kelvin temperature. Think of it this way, if you increase the volume of a gas and must keep the pressure constant the only way to achieve this is for the temperature of the gas to increase as well.

**What will happen to the volume of a gas if its absolute temperature triples increases by a factor of three as the amount of gas and the pressure are held constant?**

What will happen to the volume of a gas if its absolute temperature triples (increases by a factor of three), as the amount of gas and the pressure are held constant? The volume will decrease by a factor of three. The volume will triple (increase by a factor of three).

### What will happen to the pressure of a gas if its absolute temperature triples while the number of moles of gas and volume are held constant?

Transcribed image text: What will happen to the pressure of a gas if its absolute temperature triples (increases by a factor of three) while the number of moles of gas and the volume are held constant? The pressure will double (increase by a factor of two).

**What is the relationship between volume and temperature of gas?**

Charles’s law states that the volume of a given amount of gas is directly proportional to its temperature on the kelvin scale when the pressure is held constant.

#### Does temperature affect volume?

Volume and Temperature: Charles’s Law. These examples of the effect of temperature on the volume of a given amount of a confined gas at constant pressure are true in general: The volume increases as the temperature increases, and decreases as the temperature decreases.

**What happens to the pressure when the volume is cut in half?**

For a fixed mass of an ideal gas kept at a fixed temperature, pressure and volume are inversely proportional. Therefore, when the volume is halved, the pressure is doubled; and if the volume is doubled, the pressure is halved.

## What is the relationship between the volume and pressure of a gas?

It is summarized in the statement now known as Boyle’s law: The volume of a given amount of gas held at constant temperature is inversely proportional to the pressure under which it is measured.

**How does volume change with temperature?**

These examples of the effect of temperature on the volume of a given amount of a confined gas at constant pressure are true in general: The volume increases as the temperature increases, and decreases as the temperature decreases. If the temperature is in kelvin, volume and temperature are directly proportional.

### What is the relationship between gas volume and pressure?

More collisions mean more force, so the pressure will increase. When the volume decreases, the pressure increases. This shows that the pressure of a gas is inversely proportional to its volume. This is shown by the following equation – which is often called Boyle’s law.

**Why is temperature directly proportional to volume?**

So, that means that volume is directly proportional to temperature. Even then, since we increase the temperature inside a material, the molecules’ kinetic energy increases and they start to vibrate more and move around further from each other, therefore accounting for an increase in volume.

#### How is the volume of gas affected if the pressure is tripled?

How will the volume of a gas be affected if the pressure is tripled, but the temperature remains the same? It decreases by a factor of 1 3. Boyle’s law states that the pressure of a gas and the volume it occupies are inversely proportional.

**How is the pressure of an ideal gas related to the temperature?**

Charles’ Law states that the volume of an ideal gas at constant pressure is directly proportional to the absolute temperature. Boyle’s Law states that the pressure of a given mass of an ideal gas is inversely proportional to its volume at a constant temperature. They are both captured in the Ideal Gas Law.

## What happens to the volume when the temperature is doubled?

And if the temperature is doubled, the volume increases to twice the original volume. If both the changes take place simultaneously, the volume would become 2/3 the original volume. If V’ is the changed volume and V is the original volume we have V’ = k*2*T/3*P = (2/3)* (k*T/P) = (2/3)*V

**How is volume related to temperature and pressure?**

The volume is directly proportional to the temperature and inversely proportional to the pressure. If the volume is tripled, the volume decreases to one third the original volume. And if the temperature is doubled, the volume increases to twice the original volume.
