How does temperature effect the density of the air?

    The higher the temperature, the lower the density of the air. This is because the molecules move faster and push harder against their surroundings as the temperature rises so that if you were to measure the density of air in a particular “box,” as the temperature increases the the air will expand and escape from the box, leading to a lower density. Other factors such as altitude and humidity effect the density of air as well, to learn more visit the links below.
