Answer ( 1 )

  1. The pressure exerted by the gas is due to the sum of all these collision forces. If the temperature of the gas is increased, the average kinetic energy of its molecules increases. Therefore, the molecules hit the wall “harder” and also more frequently. The total force due to the collisions is greater.
