## What are the five assumptions of an ideal gas?

The kinetic-molecular theory of gases assumes that ideal gas molecules (1) are constantly moving; (2) have negligible volume; (3) have negligible intermolecular forces; (4) undergo perfectly elastic collisions; and (5) have an average kinetic energy proportional to the ideal gas’s absolute temperature.

**Is P and V directly proportional?**

Boyle’s law states that pressure (P) and volume (V) are inversely proportional. Charles’ law states that volume (V) and temperature (T) are directly proportional. Avagadro’s law states that the amount (n) of a substance is directly proportional to the volume (V).

**Is the relationship between volume and temperature a direct or inverse relationship?**

The volume of a given gas sample is directly proportional to its absolute temperature at constant pressure (Charles’s law). The volume of a given amount of gas is inversely proportional to its pressure when temperature is held constant (Boyle’s law).
