Main Question or Discussion Point
can someone explain the the relationship these have to each other? i know that they are either proportional or inverse proportional but i dont know which ones are. Thanks
oooo ok. thanks man. you also just unintentionally helped me with a worksheet question i was struggling with! thanks again.For a given amount of a gas in a container, PV/T stays constant.
Try leaving any one thing alone and change one thing, and you can see what happens to the third thing; for example, leave T alone, decrease V, then P must increase. Does it make sense? Does squeezing a gas into a smaller container make its pressure go up? Check.
Why it's dangerous to throw an aerosol can into a campfire. Leave V alone, and increase T, so then P must increase. Kaboom!
