I need help understanding this. I keep rereading and I'm still confused. Can you help me by re writing it in a way that I can understand?
The pressure law states that for a constant volume of gas in a sealed container the temperature of the gas is directly proportional to its pressure. This can be easily understood by visualizing the particles of gas in the container moving with a greater energy when the temperature is increased. This means that they have more collisions with each other and the sides of the container and hence the pressure is increased.

For a particular volume, increasing the temperature of a gas makes the pressure increase. The increase is caused by the added energy given to the particles of the gas and that causes more pressure as those particles collide with the sides of the container.
