Boyle’s Law





Boyle’s Law (1662)

This law states that, "For a given quantity (mass) of a gas, at a constant temperature, the volume of a gas is inversely proportional to its pressure".

I.e.

 V \alpha \dfrac{1}{p} (At constant temperature)

Or, PV =K (constant)

Or, P_1V_1 = P_2V_2

\left(\dfrac{dP}{dV} \right)_T = k / V^2

 

Thus, according to this law, “for a given quantity of a gas, at a constant temperature, the product of pressure and volume is constant".
