1

What causes pressure of a gas in a container?

Gas particles hitting the sides of a container

2

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

3

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

4

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.

5

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

6

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

7

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

Suggest one place that kinetic theory/model is used.

  • Weather balloons
  • Car tyres
  • Aerosol cans
  • Aircraft cabins
  • Gas tanks for diving
  • Pressurised containers - fire extinguishers
