Unformatted text preview: square meter 1. 101.325 kilopascals = 1 atm = 760 mm Hg = 760 Torr D. Standard Pressure and Temperature (STP) 1. 0 degrees Celsius and 1 atm Charles’s Law: Volume-Temperature Relationship A. If Temperature increases, volume increases 1. Example- hot air balloons B. Explanation: 1. At higher temperatures, gas molecules move faster 2. They collide with the walls of the container more often 3. This increased force causes the walls of the container to expand C. First discovered by Jacques Charles in 1787 1. For every degree Celsius a gas it heated above 0, the volume increases by 1/273...
