The generating plant

Francis Bacon Crocker - 1896
...between the temperature, pressure, and volume of a gas : — 1. The law of Boyle or Mariotte, which states that the volume of a gas is inversely proportional to the pressure, the temperature being kept constant ; that is, / v — C, in which / and v are the pressure...

Safety and Health in Confined Spaces

Neil McManus - 1998 - 928 pages
...chemistry provide an important basis for discussing this problem (McQuarrie and Rock 1984). Boyle's law states that the volume of a gas is inversely proportional to the pressure exerted by it. Charles' law states that the volume of a gas is proportional to the absolute...

Clinical Measurement of Speech and Voice

Ronald J. Baken, Robert F. Orlikoff - 2000 - 610 pages
...lung volume occurs together with (and, indeed, is produced by) a change in alveolar pressure. Boyle's law states that the volume of a gas is inversely proportional to its pressure: If alveolar pressure increases somewhat, the volume of the lungs will diminish a little,...
