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.
