chemistry student relates the following story: I noticed my tires were a bit low and went to the gas station. As I was filling the tires I thought about the kinetic molecular (KM) theory. In oticed the tires because the volume was low, and I realized that I was increasing both the pressure and volume of the tires. “Hmmm.” I thought, “that goes against what I learned in chemistry, where I was told pressure and volume are inversely proportional." What is the fault of the logic of the chemistry student in this situation? Explain under what conditions pressure and volume are inversely related (draw pictures and use the KM theory).

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

To determine the kinetic molecular theory and the logic fault in the given situation. Also to explain the pressure and volume conditions being relatively inverse.

Concept Introduction:

The air pressure is defined as the force that is exerted by the air from the surface against the gravity and it is usually measured in barometer.

Explanation

According to the kinetic molecular theory a container in the gas particles increases, the collision frequency inside the container wall also increases which creates a pressure in the gas. So the kinetic energy of the gas particles depends on the gas temperature according to KMT. The ideal gas equation is given as,

PV = nRTP =
