As temperature increases pressure increases (for a gas).


For a gas, pressure is the cumulative effect of collisions of the gas particles against, say, the side of a bottle or other container. The particles of gas fly around (like little balls) because of their energy; as we increase the energy content of the gas (and in doing so we raise the temperature) the particles fly faster having more energy and collide with more force communicating more energy to the walls and so giving an increase in pressure.
