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.

High temperature makes the volume greater.

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

Yes. An increase in temperature will cause an increase in volume, while a decrease in temperature will cause a decrease in volume.

An increase in temperature will cause an increase in volume, while a decrease in temperature will cause a decrease in volume.

Generally, heat added to materials causes an increase in volume as well as temperature. If the volume is contained (as with gases), the temperature increases the pressure.

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

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.

Volume is a measure of how much space something takes up. Temperature and pressure affect volume.

Yes, the size (volume and mass) and the type of the cup will affect its temperature

To predict how temperature will affect the volume of a gas, pressure must remain constant. Volume in gases decreases with increase in pressure.

Volume is the ratio between mass and density; density depends on temperature.

yeah the temperature does increase, when you increase the volume of water the temperature of calcium hydroxide increases too!

There are two factors that affect gas pressure. These factors are temperature and volume. Higher volume means lower pressure. Higher temperature means higher pressure.

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)

the amount of zg, volume and temperature

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.

If the temperature remains constant, decreasing the volume will increase the pressure.

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.

temperature, amount of gas, and volume

Most liquids will expand when heated up.

Pressure and temperature are directly proportional to each other, temperature increases with the increase of pressure. While pressure and volume are inversely proportional to each other. Volume decreases with the increase of pressure.
