On reducing the volume of gas at constant temperature,the pressure of the gas increases .Explain why?

  • science -

    Because P*V is constant at a given temperature.

    The reason that is true is that the gas density increases when volume decreases, and so more molecules hit the wall per unit time. That is what causes the pressure.
