Unformatted text preview: Pressure / volume. . Exponential slope compared to a linear fashion The pressure is proportional to the temperature. P=kT where P is pressure, k is constant and T is temperature. K is related inversely to volume. k/v Pressure vs. the number of moles. The pressure is proportional to the number of particles present in the experiment. Pressure vs. volume. The pressure is equal to the inverse of the volume. PV=k As you go up in atmosphere there are fewer particles present. As the number of particles goes down, then the pressure goes down. PV=nRT. . pressure, volume, number of particles, temperature, and constant (R) If you have a relationship across the numerators, then we sai they are directly proportional. If the factor is in the denominator, then it is an inverse proportional...
