Top best answers to the question «How do you increase the pressure of a gas»

  1. Add more gas. More molecules mean more collisions…
  2. Decrease the volume. Less space means less room for the atoms to move in and this will lead to more collisions and more pressure.
  3. 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.
