1 CHE 131 Lecture 24: Pressure, Kinetic Theory, Ideal Gas Laws Chapter 10: pp. 435-453. Prof. Wong Properties of Gases can be compressed exert pressure on whatever surrounds them expand into whatever volume is available easily diffuse into one another can be described in terms of their temperatures and pressure, the volume occupied, and the amount (number of molecules or moles) present

Compression of Gases Question: What happens to bicycle tires on hot days versus cold days? a. The tires expand because an increase in temperature corresponds to an increase in molecular speed which causes an increase in the force of gas collisions on the inside of the tire. b. The tires shrink because an increase in temperature corresponds to a decrease in molecular speed which causes a decrease in the force of gas collisions on the inside of the tire. c. The tires expand because an increase in temperature causes the gas molecules to be less attracted to each other and therefore they take up more space. d. The tires shrink because an increase in temperature causes the gas molecules to be more attracted to each other and therefore they take up less space. e. The tires stay the same volume because the amount of gas
