A law stating that the pressure of a given mass of an ideal gas is inversely proportional to its volume at a constant temperature.
‘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.’
‘Basic diver training teaches us Boyle's law, that the volume of a gas is inversely proportional to pressure.’
‘The behavior of gasses at depth is governed by Boyle's law: the volume of a gas varies inversely with pressure.’
