## Is there a linear or inverse relationship between pressure and volume?

(c) A plot of volume versus 1/pressure for the same data shows the inverse linear relationship between the two quantities, as expressed by the equation V = constant/P.

## Why is pressure vs volume not linear?

As pressure is applied to the pump, the same number of gas molecules are squeezed into a smaller volume. The dependence of volume on pressure is not linear.

**Why is the relationship between pressure and volume inverse?**

Boyle’s Law is a relationship between pressure and volume. In this relationship, pressure and volume have an inverse relationship when temperature is held constant. If there is a decrease in the volume there is less space for molecules to move and therefore they collide more often, increasing the pressure.

**Is the relationship between pressure and volume linear or nonlinear?**

Since P and V are inversely proportional, a graph of 1/P vs. V is linear. Figure 6. The relationship between pressure and volume is inversely proportional.

### What relationship is Charles Law?

Charles’s law, a statement that the volume occupied by a fixed amount of gas is directly proportional to its absolute temperature, if the pressure remains constant. This empirical relation was first suggested by the French physicist J. -A. -C.

### What happens when you squeeze gas into a smaller space?

If we apply pressure on gases ( i.e. squeeze them into smaller space ) below the critical point They get CONVERTED into LIQUID STATE. It because when we compress them there molecules come near, develop bonds and build up stronger intermolecular force thus, forming Liquids.

**What kind of relationship is Charles Law?**

Charles’s law, a statement that the volume occupied by a fixed amount of gas is directly proportional to its absolute temperature, if the pressure remains constant.

**What is Amontons law?**

Toward the end of the 1600s, the French physicist Guillaume Amontons built a thermometer based on the fact that the pressure of a gas is directly proportional to its temperature. The relationship between the pressure and the temperature of a gas is therefore known as Amontons’ law.

## What is Avogadro’s law class 11?

Avogadro’s law states that “equal volumes of all gases, at the same temperature and pressure, have the same number of molecules.” For a given mass of an ideal gas, the volume and amount (moles) of the gas are directly proportional if the temperature and pressure are constant.

## What is Avogadro’s law example?

Another common example of Avogadro’s law is the deflation of automobile tyres. When the air trapped inside the tyre escapes, the number of moles of air present in the tyre decreases. This results in a decrease in the volume occupied by the gas, causing the tyre to lose its shape and deflate.

**Can you squash a liquid?**

But the forces holding them together are not as strong as in solids. The particles can move around. This is why you can pour a liquid. You cannot squash a liquid because the particles are still very close together.
