Consider an ideal gas enclosed within a container with a moveable piston and a valve through which additional ideal gas can be added to the container. Which one of the following actions may not result in an increase in pressure?




Increase the temperature, the volume, and the number of moles of gas in the container.


Increase the temperature of the gas, while keeping its volume and number of moles inside the container constant.


Decrease the volume, while keeping the temperature and the number of moles of gas in the container constant.


Decrease the volume while increasing the temperature and keep the number of moles inside the container constant.
