Flashcards in Chapter 14 - Behavior of Gas Deck (8):
What will happen to the pressure as the temperature of a fixed volume of a gas increases?
It will increase
Why does the pressure decrease when you increase the volume of a given amount of gas at a constant temperature?
the molecules are striking a larger area with the same force
If the volume of a gas is doubled while temperature is held constant what will happen to the pressure of the gas?
it will be reduced by 1/2
What will happen as the temperature of a gas in a balloon decreases?
The average kinetic energy of the gas particles decreases
What will happen to the pressure of a gas if the volume is increased from 0.5 L to 4.0 L and the temperature is held at a constant?
It is decreased by a factor of 8
What would not cause an increase in the pressure of a gaseous system?
making the container larger
What can be said about the volume of a gas and its Kelvin temperature when pressure is constant?
They are directly related
