What causes pressure of a gas in a container?

Gas particles hitting the sides of a container

Using Kinetic Theory state what happens to the pressure if you increase the temperature of a fixed mass gas in a fixed volume container.

Pressure increases

Using Kinetic Theory state what happens to the pressure if you decrease the volume of a fixed mass gas at a constant temperature.

Pressure increases

Using Kinetic Theory state what happens to the volume if you increase the temperature of a fixed mass gas at a fixed pressure.

volume will increase.

Using Kinetic Theory state what happens to the pressure if you decrease the temperature of a fixed mass gas in a fixed volume container.

Pressure decreases

Using Kinetic Theory state what happens to the pressure if you increase the volume of a fixed mass gas at a constant temperature.

Pressure decreases

Using Kinetic Theory state what happens to the volume if you decrease the temperature of a fixed mass gas at a fixed pressure.

Volume decreases
