As the temperature of a gas increases, so does the volume.

## Related Questions Normally there is no affect. In a gas, a CHANGE of volume of a single body, will give a change in temperature. If a gas is compressed the temperature will increase. If a gas is allowed to expand, there will be a reduction in temperature. This principle is used in diesel engines, to ignite the fuel by compression and fridges, where an expansion of gas causes cooling.  to change the volume of a gas, we should change the temperature and preasure given to the gas The volume of gas can change because it depends on temperature and pressure and both of those can change in a gas. So if they change then the volume change. Because any one measurement of a gas depends on the other two. -- If you keep the pressure of a gas constant and change its temperature, the volume changes. -- If you keep the pressure of a gas constant and change its volume, the temperature changes. -- If you keep the temperature of a gas constant and change its pressure, the volume changes. -- If you keep the temperature of a gas constant and change its volume, the pressure changes. -- If you keep the volume of a gas constant and change its temperature, the pressure changes. -- If you keep the volume of a gas constant and change its pressure, the temperature changes.    change the pressure and/or the temperature of the gas Change the pressure and/or the temperature of the gas. Increasing the pressure the volume of a gas decrease. No, it does affect the volume of a gas according to the ideal gas law (PV=nRT).  Volume ChangesThe volume of any solid, liquid, or gas will change with changes in temperature. Pressure is inversely proportional to volume. So when pressure increases, volume decreases. (as per Boyle's law) Temperature is directly proportional to volume. So when temperature increases, volume increases. (as per Charles's law) As a general rule, increasing the temperature will increase the volume of a liquid (or a solid or a gas) the higher the temperature, the higher the volume of a solid - michelle strafer At a constant temperature, the volume and the pressure are inversely proportional, that it, the greater the volume, the lesser the pressure on the gas, and viceversa. If the temperature remains constant, decreasing the volume will increase the pressure. That change is known to be a change of state. Gas becomes liquid. If gas is taken out we can change the volume at constant temperature and pressure conditions. That is mass changes hence volume changes keeping the density constant. Yes, it does affect the volume. The relationship between them can be explained by the equation pV=nRT (pressure x volume = number of moles of gas x molar gas constant x temperature). Therefore, there is a direct proportionality between temperature and volume. If the temperature doubles, so does the volume. To predict how temperature will affect the volume of a gas, pressure must remain constant. Volume in gases decreases with increase in pressure. There are two factors that affect gas pressure. These factors are temperature and volume. Higher volume means lower pressure. Higher temperature means higher pressure.  If the amount of gas and the pressure remain constant, the volume will decrease by 1/273rd the original volume for each degree Celsius that the temperature decreases.
