If we place a balloon in liquid nitrogen it shrinks: How Volume Varies With Temperature So, gases shrink if cooled. Conversely, if we heat a gas it expands (as in a hot air balloon). Let’s take a closer look at temperature before we try to find the exact relationship of V vs. T.
No. 68 ° F (20 ° C) is not double 50 ° F (10 ° C) Yes. 44 lb (20 kg) is double 22 lb (10 kg) What’s the difference? Weights (kg or lb) have a minimum value of 0. But the smallest temperature is not 0 ° C. We saw that doubling P yields half the V. Yet, to investigate the effect of doubling temp- erature, we first have to know what that means. An experiment with a fixed volume of gas in a cylinder will reveal the relationship of V vs. T… Temperature scales Is 20 ° C twice as hot as 10 ° C? Is 20 kg twice as heavy as 10 kg?

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
