A proportionality constant between the productA substance produced by a chemical reaction. of the pressureForce per unit area; in gases arising from the force exerted by collisions of gas molecules with the wall of the container. and volume of a gasA state of matter in which a substance occupies the full volume of its container and changes shape to match the shape of the container. In a gas the distance between particles is much greater than the diameters of the particles themselves; hence the distances between particles can change as necessary so that the matter uniformly occupies its container. and the product of the chemical amount (moles) and temperatureA physical property that indicates whether one object can transfer thermal energy to another object. of the gas.
