- Add more gas. More molecules mean more collisions…
- Decrease the volume. Less space means less room for the atoms to move in and this will lead to more collisions and more pressure.
- Increase the temperature.

PV = nRT or (Pressure) = (moles of gas)x(universal gas constant)x(Temperature)/(Volume). Thus to increase pressure: increase the amount of the gas, increase the temperature of the gas or decrease the volume of the container in which it is held.
