c. Pressure and temperature

1. Boyle’s law

2. Avogadro’s law

3. Gay-Lussac’s law

a. Volume and moles

b. Pressure and volume

c. Pressure and temperature

Answer:

1. B

2. A

3. C

Explanation:

1. Boyle’s law is one of the gas laws that states that the pressure of a gas is inversely proportional to its volume at a constant temperature. PV = K. Hence, this gas law compares the properties of the pressure (P) and the volume (V)

2. Avogadro’s law states that the volume of a gas is directly proportional to the number of molecules of that gas, at a constant temperature and pressure. K = Vn. Hence, this gas law compares the properties of the number of moles (n) and the volume (V).

3. Gay-Lussac’s law states that the pressure of a gas is directly proportional with the temperature of the gas at a constant volume. K = PT. Hence, this law compares the properties of the pressure (P) and the temperature (T)
