### What happen when The greater the speed of gas particles in a container the?

greater the pressure

### How does heating a gas in a rigid container change pressure?

Heating a gas in a closed container would increase it's pressure. This would happen because when you heat the gas, the particles' kinetic energy increases, making them move faster, and more. They will hit the sides of the container and create pressure.

### What would happen to the pressure if you cooled down the container?

The pressure inside the container would decrease.

### What will happen to the particles of a gas if the gas is transferred from a small container to a much larger container?

The particles will just move away from each other, to fill the larger container.

### What will happen to the pressure inside a closed container of gas if more gas is added to the container?

It starts bubbling then it explodes. -I think it would just become more pressurized, it depends how pressurized it was before. But yes, it would explode if it had too much pressure.Yes, it could explode (depending on the type of container), but the main point is that the pressure would increase. Pressure is defined as the number and force of collisions between the particles and the wall of the container. If you're adding more gas to the container, then you are increasing the number of particles in one space; therefore, they will collide more often with the container.

### What happen to the pressure of a gas if the volume of the gas is tripled of a constant temperature?

The pressure is reduced to one third of the original pressure. The pressure will stay the same you are only changing the volume

### What will happen to the pressure inside the container if the volume of a container of gas is reduced?

The pressure inside the container will increase. Pressure (P) is force(F) divided by the area(A) it hits on. If you decrease the area, you increase the pressure.

### What happen to air particles as they heat up and cool down?

Depends on the container of the "air particles" and what you mean by "what happens." If it is inside a container that can not expand, then the pressure increases. If it is inside a container that can expand (or is just atmospheric air) then the volume increases. (Pressure * Volume = n * R * change in temperature) On the atomic level, the atoms or molecules (depending on the gas) begin to move more quickly as their kinetic energy increases.

### What will happen to the particle of a gas if the gas is transferred from a small container to a much larger container?

The particles will just move away from each other, to fill the larger container.

### When a container decreases in size what will happen to an amount of gas in the container?

Assuming the temperature stays constant and there is no leakage of gas, then if the container decreases in size then the pressure will increase.

### What will happen if you raise the temperature of a gas in a fixed volume container?

The pressure of the gas increase.
