## How do temperature and pressure affect the volume of a gas?

The volume of a given gas sample is directly proportional to its absolute temperature at constant pressure (Charles’s law). The volume of a given amount of gas is inversely proportional to its pressure when temperature is held constant (Boyle’s law).

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. with k being a proportionality constant that depends on the amount and pressure of the gas.

**How do pressure and volume of a gas behave at constant temperature?**

This relationship between pressure and volume is known as Boyle’s law, after its discoverer, and can be stated as follows: At constant temperature, the volume of a fixed amount of a gas is inversely proportional to its pressure.

**What happens to the volume of gas when temperature increases?**

The volume of the gas increases as the temperature increases. As temperature increases, the molecules of the gas have more kinetic energy. They strike the surface of the container with more force. If the container can expand, then the volume increases until the pressure returns to its original value.

### What is pressure volume and temperature?

pressure-volume (constant temperature) The pressure of a gas is inversely proportional to its volume when temperature is constant. The product of pressure and volume is constant when temperature is constant. This relationship is known as Boyle’s law or Mariotte’s law .

### Why is temperature directly proportional to pressure?

The pressure law states that for a constant volume of gas in a sealed container the temperature of the gas is directly proportional to its pressure. This means that they have more collisions with each other and the sides of the container and hence the pressure is increased.

**Why does the volume of a gas increase as it is heated at constant pressure?**

Heating a gas increases the kinetic energy of the particles, causing the gas to expand. In order to keep the pressure constant, the volume of the container must be increased when a gas is heated.

**How is the volume of a gas related to the temperature?**

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. Mathematically, this can be written as: with k being a proportionality constant that depends on the amount and pressure of the gas.

## How does charles’law of gas volume work?

The animation below gives and explanation of Charles’ law: A sealed cylinder with no leaks contains a fixed mass. In order to keep the gas pressure constant the piston is allowed to move freely so that the internal pressure created by the gas particles can equal the constant external pressure.

## Who was the first to establish the relationship between pressure and temperature of gases?

Guillaume Amontons was the first to empirically establish the relationship between the pressure and the temperature of a gas (~1700), and Joseph Louis Gay-Lussac determined the relationship more precisely (~1800). Because of this, the P–T relationship for gases is known as either Amontons’s law or Gay-Lussac’s law.

**When does the volume of a gas become zero?**

Further extrapolation gives the temperature at which the volume of gas would become zero. This temperature is at -273°C and is called the absolute zero of temperature.
