Best Answer

when you're in gear, the engine tries to move the wheels and the brakes hold it still. this suppression from the brakes, combined with frictional losses through the drivetrain, lower the engine RPM's. When in park, the car's wheels aren't being driven therefore you don't need to press the brakes. tjhis lessens the load on the engine dramatically and therefore, engine RPM's rise
