Answer :

The ideal gas thermometer is based on the ideal gas law. So, it follows ideal gas equation PV=nRT, where R is a proportionality constant known as the ideal gas constant and P is pressure of the gas at constant volume V with n number of moles at temperature T. Therefore, we can say that, P = constant × T. According to this relation, if for a fixed volume, the pressure is directly proportional to the temperature of the gas. To verify this, there is no need to use kinetic theory of gases or any experimental results.
