See Boyles law under gas laws. Gas particles exert pressure because they collide with one another. Air contains multiple gases, each exerts it 's own pressure as it collides with another within a given space. Gravity holds air close to the earth. Air pressure decreases as altitude increases. If the space or container containg gas decreases then gases bounces againt each other and the container more frequently, causing the pressure guage to show an increase in pressure. Volume and pressure, therefore are inversely related, one goes up, the others goes down. Liquids would behave the same way.

Q: Why are pressure and volume inversely related?

Write your answer...

Pressure is inversely related to volume. This is a physics question that involves some seemingly complicated concepts. Boyle's Law says that the volume of a mass of gas is inversely proportionate to its pressure.

Provided the temperature remains constant, volume and pressure are inversely related.

PV=RT, Pressure and Volume are inversely related, P=K/T.

For a gas, pressure and volume are inversely related. If pressure decreases, volume will increase.

Pressure is inversely proportional to volume (an increase in pressure will lead to a decrease in volume) assuming a constant temperature.

Yes,they are using Charles law

Boyle's Law states that pressure and volume are related inversely, so, as the pressure of a gas increases, its volume decreases, and as volume of a gas increases, its pressure decreases.PV = nRT

They are inversely proportional.

Ideal gas law. At a fixed temperature, the pressure and volume are inversely related. PV=mRT

molar mass and pressure are inversely related..

No. Pressure and volume are inversely proportional.

Boyle's law states that at constant temperature for a fixed mass, the absolute pressure and the volume of a gas are inversely proportional

Boyle's law states that pressure is *inversely* related to volume. Therefore as the pressure of a gas increases at a constant temperature the volume of the gas decreases.

yes!

Volume is inversely proportional to the pressure

Boyle's law states that the volume of a gas is inversely proportional to its pressure if the temperature remains constant.

No. Pressure is inversely proportional to volume. Ergo, a gas under high pressure will take up less space than a gas under low pressure.

The volume varies inversely with pressure.

At a constant temperature and amount, the volume and pressure of a gas are inversely related. So if the volume decreases, the pressure will increase. This is because there are more gas particles, therefore more collisions, therefore more pressure. (because pressure is caused by collisions).

The greater the area, the lower the pressure. The smaller the area, the higher the pressure. I am assuming by area you mean volume. According to the Ideal Gas Law, PV=nRT, pressure and volume are inversely related. As the volume increases, the pressure will decrease and vice versa.

Pressure increases. Pressure and volume are inversely proportional at a fixed temperature.

for a fixed amount of gas at a constant temperature, the volume of the gas is inversely related to the pressure. As pressure of gas increases, the volume decreases at the same amount.

Volume is inversely proportional to pressure.

Directly with temperature, and Inversely with pressure.

For Boyle's law, the temperature must remain constant. The pressure and volume are inversely proportional. PV = k, k is the constant of proportionality. OR P1V1 = P2V2
