Which of the following statements is NOT correct?

Which of the following statements is NOT correct?
  • A. The average kinetic energy of a gas is directly proportional to its temperature
  • B. At constant tempearture, the volume of a gas increases as the pressure increases
  • C. The pressure of a gas is inversely proportional to its volume
  • D. The temperature of a gas is directly proportional to its volume
  • E. The collisions of molecules with each other are inelastic
Correct Answer: Option B
Explanation
Increasing the pressure confines the gas molecules to a smaller space, thereby reducing the volume. Reducing the pressure the other way round increases the volume of a gas.

option B defies boyle's law,and option E defies the kinetic theory of gases.which makes option B and E correct.there must have been an error durin d typin of d question especially in option E.wat i would suggest one do is 2 pray and pick one out of the two.or bettr still,pick d one dat d is widely accepted by others.

Since volume is inversely proportional 2 pressure as stated in boyles's law ,we cn therefore say an increase in volume brings about decrease in pressure and vise versace.option b is correct

The correct answer is B. Boyles law states that the pressure of a given gas is inversely proportional to its volume provide the temperature remains constant. This simply means as pressure increases, volume decreases and vice versa.
