Molecular Model of an Ideal Gas
This applet shows you how the pressure of an ideal gas depends on volume, temperature and number of moles of the gas.
As the number of moles n increases, pressure p increases.
As temperature T increases, pressure p increases.
As volume V decreases, pressure p increases.
The pressure p, volume V and temperature T of a gas are related by the formula:
p V = n R T
where n = number of moles of molecules
and R = molar gas constant = 8.31 J kg-1 K-1
