hey number 3 doesn’t make any sense, normally with a increase in volume the kinetic energy decreases, why the answer is B? I thought it would be D

Hi!

The kintetic energy depends on the tempreture.

Pv=nRT, T is the symbol of the tempreture.

With increasing the amount of moles and keeping the pressure and volume constant, the tempreture decreases. So option 1 is wrong.

By increasing the amount of pressure with keeping V and n constant, the tempreture increases. Option 2 is correct.

By increasing the volume and keeping V , n and pressure constant, T increases. So option 3 is correct.

Hope this helps!
