### Work Done Increasing Pressure

As the pressure of gas inside a container changes, the temperature inside will be affected by what happens to the movement of the gas particles.

Which of the following are factors which will affect the pressure a gas exerts on its container? Select all correct options from the list below.

You can select multiple answers

If you pump more gas into a container, what will happen to the amount of collisions which occur?

If you pump more air into a tyre, what will happen to the pressure exerted by the gas on the tyre?

As more air is pumped into tyre and the pressure increases, what will happen to the temperature?

So if you increase the pressure a gas exerts on a container (such as air in tyres) there will be more collisions, and therefore the temperature of the gas would increase.

True or false? Energy can be created and destroyed.

True or false? Energy can be transferred from one form to another.

What happens to the kinetic energy in the particles when you increase pressure?

So as you increase the amount of particles in the gas by doing work (such as pumping up a tyre), there are more collisions which leads to a higher temperature. This thermal energy is converted to kinetic energy which the particles use to move faster which again means more collisions.
