Expert Answer:

Molecules of gases are continuously colliding with each other and with the walls of the container. When molecule colloids with the wall, they exert small force on the wall i.e., the pressure. The pressure exerted by the gas is due to the sum of all these collision forces. The more particles that hit the walls, the pressure will increase.
