From the ideal gas law,

$\overline{){\mathbf{P}}{\mathbf{V}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{n}}{\mathbf{R}}{\mathbf{T}}}$, we see that temperature is directly proportional to the pressure and volume of the gas.

Volume is given by:

$\overline{){\mathbf{V}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{m}}{\mathbf{\rho}}}$

This implies that volume is inversely proportional to density.

If you heat a fixed quantity of gas, which of the following statements are true?

Check all that apply.

a. The volume will always increase.

b. If the pressure is held constant, the volume will increase.

c. The product of volume and pressure will increase.

d. The density of the gas will increase.

e. The quantity of gas will increase.
