1) If the kelvin temperature of a gas sample in a steel tank increases to three times its original value , what will happen to the pressure?

I think It will increase. Is this correct?

By what factor does the gas pressure change?

2) A gas sample at a constant pressure shrinks to one fourth its initial volume. What will happen to its temperature?
I think It will decrease. Is this correct?

By what factor did the kelvin temperature of the gas change?

Please help, thanks

  • chemistry -

    P1/T1 = P2/T2
    T goes up 3x, P goes up 3x.

    (P1V1)/T1 = (P2V2)/T2
    P1 and P2 don't change.
    V1 =1; V2 = 1/4
    V goes down to 1/4; T goes down to 1/4
    Check my thinking.

    so all you need is that.
