A law stating that the pressure of a given mass of an ideal gas is inversely proportional to its volume at a constant temperature.
- ‘Basic diver training teaches us Boyle's law, that the volume of a gas is inversely proportional to pressure.’
- ‘The properties of a gas are described by a series of equations known as the gas laws, these are Boyle's law, Charles's law, and the constant volume law.’
- ‘Derived from Boyle's law, Charles's law, and the constant volume law, it can be written as pV / T = a constant, where p is the pressure, V is the volume, and T is the absolute temperature.’
- ‘The value of Boyle's law lies in its ability to calculate a gas's volume at a standard pressure without actually having to measure the volume at that pressure.’
- ‘The behavior of gasses at depth is governed by Boyle's law: the volume of a gas varies inversely with pressure.’
