Temperature is a very important and widely used property of gases.
You learned how Gay-Lussac's gas law shows that, for a gas, pressure increases with increasing temperature.
P/T = k Gay-Lussac's Gas Law
P = pressure, T = temperature, k =a constant
You also learned how Charles' Gas Law shows that for a gas:
Volume increases with increasing temperature
V/T = k – Charles' Gas Law
V = volume, T = temperature, k = a constant
So exactly what is temperature?
Temperature is simply a measure of the tendency of matter to give up energy to its surroundings.
