  1. One of the following:

    1. You produce/consume a gas as a product of the reaction. Remember that a gas is far less dense than a solid.
    2. Your reaction changes the temperature of the area; i.e. the reaction is exothermic or endothermic.

    Basically, if you change the number of gas molecules, or if their temperature changes, if your volume remains constant you will get a pressure change.
