# how does applying pressure help in liquefaction of a gas?

The physical state of matter can also be changed by changing the pressure. In other words, the physical state of matter can also be changed by increasing pressure or decreasing pressure. For example, gases can be changed into liquids by increasing the pressure (accompanied by lowering of temperature).
There is a lot of space between the particles of a gas. We can reduce the spaces between the particles by enclosing it in a cylinder and compressing it by pushing in the piston.

When gases are compressed, the pressure applied on the molecules is very high and the molecules come very close to each other. thus the gas changes into liquid state.This is because the molecules of gases are far apart from each other whereas the molecules of liquid are close to each other.Thus pressure helps in the liquefaction of gases.

Answer - Applying pressure helps in liquefying of gases as when we apply pressure to the liquid, the pressure exerted on the particles of liquid causes them to come closer to each other reducing the inter particular spaces between them and the kinetic energy of the particles as well. Since the particles of gases come close to each other and lose their kinetic energy they get converted into liquid state as they start showing the properties of the liquid state where the particles of liquid are close to each other with less inter particular spaces and less kinetic energy as compared to the gaseous state. Therefore the gas has been compressed on applying pressure to get converted into liquid state. This is how applying pressure helps in liquefying the gases.

Thx for giving ans

When we compress gass tightly then the molecules of gas combine with high pressure and transform into liquid

Once when the pressure reaches the gases they will liquify on their own

When gasses are compressed that is we apply pressure on them. Then the particles come close to each other and the kinetic energy of particles become less so the given gas converted into liquid. Thus pressure can liquify Answered by a 13yr old

We know that particles of liquid has less space between them in comparism to that of gas...So when apply pressure on gas the particles of gas come close to each other...like liquid....as the particles of gas has come closer to each other it gets converted to liquid....
