Please wait for the animation to completely load.
There is a time delay—since the system must be in equilibrium—before the change of state occurs.
Note: In this applet, N = nR = NpkB (so that N is number of moles times the gas constant or the number of particles times the Boltzmann constant). This, then, means the ideal gas law is PV = NT for this animation.
