Boyle's and Charles Laws Review

Charles' law (also known as the law of volumes ) is an experimental gas law which describes how gases tend to expand when heated. A modern statement of Charles's law is:

When the pressure on a sample of a dry gas is held constant, the Kelvin temperature and the volume will be directly related.

The results of certain experiments with gases at relatively low pressure led Robert Boyle to formulate a well-known law. It states that:

Charles, also as the result of experimentation, concluded that:
