(i) The kinetic theory of gases assumes that pressure of gas is due to collision of gas molecules with the walls of the container. The more will be frequency of collision, more will be pressure. The reduction in volume of gas increases no. of molecules per unit volume to which pressure is directly proportional. Therefore, the volume of the gas is reduced if pressure is increased or pressure is inversely proportional to volume.$\frac{1}{2} m u^{2}=\frac{3}{2} k Tp=\frac{1}{3} \frac{N}{V} m u^{2}$or$p=\frac{2}{3} \frac{N}{V} \times \frac{1}{2} m u^{2}=\frac{2}{3} \frac{N}{V} \times \frac{3}{2} k T\Rightarrow p V=N k T \Rightarrow P \alpha \frac{1}{V}$It can be seen that at a constant temperature for a fixed number of gas molecules, the pressure is inversely proportional to volume.
