INTRODUCTION TO THE PRESSURE OF AN IDEAL GAS P is proportional to the number of collisions which is proportional to the concentration = N/V where N = number of molecules and V = volume. P is also proportional to the kinetic energy of the molecules when they strike the surface. It turns out that the kinetic energy is proportional to the temperature in Kelvin.
