Mention two changes that can be brought by applying pressure

Pressure, which is nothing but force per unit area can cause a number of changes in a system or part of a system. It can

change the physical configuration of a system that is its size and shape and

alter the movement of a particle or a group of particles by either speeding it up or slowing it down.

By applying pressure:

1. intermolecular force of attraction increases as the particles come closer to each other on applying pressure.

2. thermal agitation decreases as the particles lose their ability to repel each other.

as a result volume increases.

hope it helps!!


thumbs up plzzz...
