How are volume and pressure related?

Volume and pressure are inversely related so when the pressure increases, the volume decreases, and when pressure decreases, volume increases. For example, when the volume of a container is decreased, the same moles of gas will be contained in a smaller volume, thus increasing the pressure they apply to the surface of the container. When the volume is decreased, there will be the same moles of gas in a larger volume which will decrease their pressure as they are more dispersed.

Volume and pressure have an inverse relationship. If the volume decreases, the air particles crash more frequently within the smaller area, increasing pressure. The opposite occurs when volume increases.

Based on Boyle's law Boyle's volume of a gas have an inverse relationship as long as temperature is held constant. As seen from PV=nRT, if volume increases, then pressure decreases and vice versa.

Volume and pressure are inversely related. If the volume of a system decreases, the pressure will increase due to more frequent collisions.

They are inversely related, meaning if the pressure increases then volume will decrease and vice versa.

volume and pressure are inversely related (P1V1T2= P2V2T1), which allows us to derive alternative equations to find the entropy of a system.

Volume and pressure are inversely proportional so if volume increases, pressure must decrease and vice versa, but just remember that pressure can increase without changing volume by adding inert gases.
