...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... | |

...regularity found in the behavior of large numbers of them. For such an aggregate of molecules, Boyle's **Law states that the volume of a gas is inversely proportional to the** pressure. That is to say, the greater the pressure, the smaller the volume, and vice versa. That is... | |
