The volume of a gas sample is increased. Why does the pressure, which is exerted by the gas, decrease?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 4th Jun, 2014, 01:23: PM
As the volume of a gas is increased, its pressure decreases because of the fact that :
(i) The molecules have to travel a longer distance between impact on the walls of the container.
(ii) These impacts are now distributed over a larger area.
