## What happens to the pressure of a gas if its volume is decreased by half its original size at constant temperature?

Another way of thinking about this law is that the values of pressure and volume are inversely proportional; if one goes up, the other must decrease by the same factor. If you trap gas in a cylinder, and then reduce the internal volume of the cylinder to half its original value, the pressure will double.

## What would happen to the volume of a gas if the pressure on it were decreased and then the gas’s temperature were increased?

What effect does increasing pressure have on gas particles? when the pressure of a gas at constant temperature is increased, the volume of the gas decreases. when the pressure is decreased, the volume increases. the volume of a gas is directly proportional to its temperature(in kelvin) at constant pressure.

Which of the following will happen if the volume of a gas is decreased while the temperature remains constant?

Which of the following will happen if the volume of a gas is decreased while the temperature remains constant? Thus the pressure of the gas will increases as the volume of the gas decreases at constant temperature.

### What happens to the pressure of a gas if you decrease the volume of its container by 1 4?

Boyle’s law Because the volume has decreased, the particles will collide more frequently with the walls of the container. Each time they collide with the walls they exert a force on them. More collisions mean more force, so the pressure will increase. When the volume decreases, the pressure increases.

### What happens to the pressure if the volume is reduced to half and the temperature is doubled?

The law itself can be stated as follows: for a fixed amount of an ideal gas kept at a fixed temperature, P (pressure) and V (volume) are inversely proportional—that is, when one doubles, the other is reduced by half. The moving wall converts the effect of molecular collisions into pressure and acts as a pressure gauge.

What would happen to the volume of a gas if the pressure on that gas were doubled and then the absolute temperature of the gas were doubled?

Doubling the absolute temperature of a gas also doubles its volume, if the pressure is constant, and vice versa.

## What happens to a gas if the pressure is increased?

Boyle found that when the pressure of gas at a constant temperature is increased, the volume of the gas decreases. this relationship between pressure and volume is called Boyle’s law. So, at constant temperature, the answer to your answer is: the volume decreases in the same ratio as the ratio of pressure increases.

## What happens to the pressure of a gas if the temperature is decreased?

the lower the temperature, the lower the kinetic energy of a gas will be, and it will be easier to compress the gas. Using the ideal gas equation PV=nRT, if the volume is constant, a decrease in temperature will cause a decrease in the pressure of the gas.

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

Explanation: Boyle’s law states that the pressure of a gas and the volume it occupies are inversely proportional. Therefore, if the pressure increases by a factor of 3 (tripled), then at constant temperature, we expect the volume to decrease by a factor of 13 (“cut in third”).

### What happens to the pressure if the gas volume is cut in half while N and T are held constant?

If volume increases, then pressure decreases and vice versa, when the temperature is held constant. Therefore, when the volume is halved, the pressure is doubled; and if the volume is doubled, the pressure is halved.

### What happens when the volume of a gas decreases?

Because the volume has decreased, the particles will collide more frequently with the walls of the container. Each time they collide with the walls they exert a force on them. More collisions mean more force, so the pressure will increase. When the volume decreases, the pressure increases.

What happens when the pressure and temperature of a fixed amount of gas?

If you decrease both the pressure and temperature of a fixed amount of gas, any changes you observe will be in the volume of the gas. Temperature is directly related to volume, and pressure is inversely related to volume.

## How is the pressure of a gas inversely proportional to its volume?

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.

## How is the volume of gas affected by charles’law?

Calculations using Charles’ Law involve the change in either temperature (T2) or volume (V2) from a known starting amount of each (V1and T1): Boyle’s Law -states that the volume of a given amount of gas held at constant temperature varies inversely with the applied pressure when the temperature and mass are constant.
