# What happens to volume when pressure is doubled?

## What happens to volume when pressure is doubled?

FIGURE 9.8 Boyle’s Law: At constant temperature, the volume of a gas sample is inversely proportional to the pressure. If the pressure on the piston is doubled, the volume of the gas decreases by one-half.

## What happens to the volume of the balloon as pressure increases?

By squeezing the balloon, you reduce the space the gas particles can occupy. As the particles are pushed a bit closer together, they collide with more, so the pressure from the moving gas particles increases. According to Boyle’s Law, the volume of a fixed amount of gas decreases as its pressure increases.

What will happen to the volume of a balloon if the pressure is increased at a constant temperature?

when the pressure of a gas at constant temperature is increased, the volume of the gas decreases. when the pressure is decreased, the volume increases. the volume of a gas is directly proportional to its temperature(in kelvin) at constant pressure.

What happens to volume when pressure is doubled and temperature is doubled?

The volume is directly proportional to the temperature and inversely proportional to the pressure. And if the temperature is doubled, the volume increases to twice the original volume. If both the changes take place simultaneously, the volume would become 2/3 the original volume.

### How does volume affect pressure?

Decreasing the volume of a gas increases the pressure of the gas. More collisions mean more force, so the pressure will increase. When the volume decreases, the pressure increases. This shows that the pressure of a gas is inversely proportional to its volume.

### What happens if the volume is doubled?

In other words, pressure is inversely proportional to volume. So, if you double the volume, it will be like halving the pressure. This also makes sense if you think about it logically. If the gas has more space to move around in, it’s going to spend less time pressing against the walls of the container.

What will happen to the volume of a balloon if pressure is kept constant and the temperature is lowered?

If temperature is held constant, the equation is reduced to Boyle’s law. Therefore, if you decrease the pressure of a fixed amount of gas, its volume will increase. However, if you were to maintain a constant volume while decreasing pressure, the temperature would also have to decrease.

What is the pressure in a balloon?

One experiment shows that the balloon reaches a relatively constant pressure of 810 mmHg until it gets close to its maximum elasticity point and then increases to 820, 830 and finally 840 mmHg when it pops.

## When a balloon is inflated does pressure increase?

The more the balloon is inflated, the more force the elastic will apply (think Hooke’s law). Outside air pressure can be taken as constant. Therefore pressure will increase as you inflate the balloon, because the force from the elastic grows as the balloon is inflated. No need to invoke the gas law at all.

## What happens when a balloon is over inflated explain this using the terms pressure and volume?

What happens to a balloon when pressure increases? As balloons rise, air pressure around them diminishes. When the ballon is made of elastic material, it expands because of the excess pressure inside. Its volume increases and its internal pressure decreases.

What happens to volume when temperature and pressure increases?

Boyle’s Law – states that the volume of a given amount of gas held at constant temperature varies inversely with the applied pressure when the temperature and mass are constant. If the amount of gas in a container is increased, the volume increases.

What happens to the pressure when the volume of an ideal gas is doubled while the temperature is halved?

Thus, doubling the Kelvin temperature and halving the pressure quadruples the volume.

### What happens when the volume of a gas balloon Increases?

For a gas sample at constant pressure, temperature and volume are inversely proportional. A certain balloon will pop if it expands to a volume greater than 16.0 L. The balloon is currently filled with air at a volume of 8.0 L. You heat the balloon such that the temperature measured in Celsius doubles.

### What happens to the pressure when the volume is doubled?

If you double the pressure you halve the volume, so the ration is 1/2For the same amount (and temperature) double the pressure means half the volume. What happens to the volume of a cylinder when the height is double?

How big does a balloon have to be to pop?

A certain balloon will pop if it expands to a volume greater than 16.0 L. The balloon is currently filled with air at a volume of 8.0 L. You heat the balloon such that the temperature measured in Celsius doubles. Which of the following best describes what happens?

How is the volume of a gas related to its volume?

The volume of a gas is inversely proportional to the number of moles of gas present (pressure and temperature constant). You are holding two helium balloons, a large and a small balloon. How do the pressures of the helium compare?
