Q13. These questions are about the pressure of air inside a bike tyre: 

1. Which of these sentences best explains the change in pressure if the tyre is heated?
 A. The pressure increases because there are more particles of air inside the tyre.
 B. The pressure increases because the particles hit the sides harder and more often.
 C. The pressure decreases because there are more spaces between the particles of a hot gas.
 D. The pressure decreases because the particles move faster so do not hit the sides so frequently.
 
2. Which of these rows describes the change in pressure and particle speed if the temperature is kept constant, but more air is pumped into the tyre?

Pressure 
Particle Speed 
A 
increases 
stays the same 
B 
increases 
increases 
C 
stays the same 
stays the same 
D 
stays the same 
increases 
 
3. When a cyclist sits on the bike, the tyre is compressed. Assuming the temperature remains constant, how does this compression change the volume of the tyre and the pressure in the tyre?

Volume 
Pressure 
A 
increases

increases 
increases 
C 
decreases 
stays the same 
D 
decreases 
increases
