Answers (2)

As we learnt in

Gay Lussac’s Law -

Pressure -Temperature Relationship

- wherein

\frac{P_{1}}{T_{1}}= \frac{P_{2}}{T_{2}}

 

 

 

According to Gay ussac's law, at constant pressure of a given mass of a gas is directly proportional to the absolute temperature of the gas. Hence, on increasing pressure, the temperature is also increased. Thus in pressure cooker due to increase in pressure the boiling point of water involved in cooking is also increased.
