Ideal gas law

  1. Sep 14, 2012 #1
    i had a question PV=nRT
    is the V the volume of the container or the gas

    and if it was the container
    and i had a balloon and i squeezed it decreasing the volume increasing the pressure
    will that increase the temperature?

    thank you

    How can the volume of the container be different from the volume of the gas?

    No, it would just increase the pressure.

    an increase temperature then?
