When the apparent wind speed is doubled, the pressure on the sail is quadrupled. That is because the pressure on the sail (or the side of your house or a billboard sign) is proportional to the square of the speed of the wind. If the wind speed triples, then the pressure goes up by a factor of nine, because three squared is nine.

If you raise the temperature of a gas it will increase the pressure if the volume does what?

The volume stays the same if it is in a container. If it is not then the volume will increase.PV = nRTPressure times Volume = number of moles times Gas constant times temperatureThus if you raise temperature, pressure and/or volume must increase.


What happens to pressure if temperature is doubled?

Pressure doubles too. Temperature and pressure share a direct relationship (this is called Gay-Lussac's Law.)


If lateen sails were triangular what were the square sails called in medieval times?

Square sails are not truly square but rectangular with a longer long side on the bottom perimeter of the sail. They were and are referred to as "four-cornered" sails.


How do you increase water pressure with poor gravity from water tank?

Simply increase the height of the tank as the pressure is a constant (.434) times the height, or approximately 1/2 PSI per foot.

sound wii be drease by 2 times and frequency increase by 2 times.


If the current in a work piece is doubled what will be the effect on the heat energy produced?

P = I2R (power = current squared times resistance). Therefore, if the current doubles, the amount of dissipated electrical energy will increase by a factor of 4.P = I2R (power = current squared times resistance). Therefore, if the current doubles, the amount of dissipated electrical energy will increase by a factor of 4.P = I2R (power = current squared times resistance). Therefore, if the current doubles, the amount of dissipated electrical energy will increase by a factor of 4.P = I2R (power = current squared times resistance). Therefore, if the current doubles, the amount of dissipated electrical energy will increase by a factor of 4.


What would you do to the volume of a gas to reduce its pressure to one quarter of the original value?

You could increase its volume or cool it or both.


Why increasing the pressure of a pot of water will increase its temperature?

Pressure times Volume = Number of moles times Gas constant times Temperature The constant will not change. The number of moles is assumed not to change in a closed container. The volume unchanging, if pressure increases then the temperature would theoretically have to increase, though artificially increasing pressure without changing the volume of the container, adding energy, or introducing additional matter is very difficult, if not impossible.

The volume and the pressure of a gas are doubled how will the temperature change?

The temperature will increase, if the gas is ideal or nearly so. For an ideal gas, the product of pressure and volume equals a constant times the absolute temperature. If each of the temperature and pressure of the gas is doubled, the product of pressure and volume increases by a factor of 4, and the absolute temperature must increase by the same ratio.


What are sails made out of?

In the past, sails were made out of a material called 'sailcloth' or 'canvas' which was originally made from hemp/flax fibers (linen). After the discovery of cotton this too was used as the source of fiber. In modern times, sails are rarely made from natural fibers and most sails are now made from synthetic fibers including nylon, polyester, aramids and carbon fibers. These sails are stronger and will not let the wind though. (In the past sail canvas had to be sluiced down to make it impervious to the wind - this made the sails and rigging heavy).


If the velocity of an object doubles and its mass triples how much does the momentum increase?

Momentum is mass times velocity. The answer, from that fact, should be trivially easy to determine.

When the temperature of a gas increases at a constant pressure what does the volume increase?

In an ideal gas the prouct of pressure and volume equals a constant times the absolute temperature, i.e. PV = RT, where R is called the universal gas constant. If the pressure is constant then this equation, in effect, becomes V= k'T where k' = R/P. This means that the volume will increase in proportion to the value of the absolute temperature with the constant of proportionality being R/P. The reason the volume expands is because the gas molecules receive energy from the increase in temperature and this energy will mean that if the pressure is to remain constant, the volume occupied by the gas will have to increase


How does water pressure change as you dive deeper?

Water presure doubles every 33 feet. Water presure doesn't actually double every 33 feet. It actually increases in pressure by one atmosphere every 33ft. Thus at 33ft the pressure would be twice what it is at the surface. At 66ft however the the pressure would be three times that at the surface... 99ft, 4 times and so on.

If the sides of a cell double in length its volume will increase by how many times?

If the sides of a cell doubles, this volume will increase by 8 times. Here is an explanation: Say you have a cell with the side dimension equal to n. The volume of the cube is n3 Double the side lenght to 2n The volume is now (2n)(2n)(2n) = 8n3
