An interactive animation illustrating Boyle's Law. Placing more weights on the piston, squeezing the gas inside the piston. A volume-pressure graph displays the results.

An interactive animation of an experiment demonstrating Boyle's Law. Weights are added to a piston to compress a gas. The pressure and volume of the gas are recorded in a table and then plotted on a graph.

An animation plotting a graph of inverse volume against pressure to illustrate Boyle's Law. Calculating the inverse volume and then plot the results in a graph.

Boyle's law states that at constant temperature for a fixed mass, the absolute pressure and the volume of a gas are inversely proportional. The law can also be stated in a slightly different manner, that the product of absolute pressure and volume is always constant.

For a fixed amount of an ideal gas kept at a fixed temperature, pressure and volume are inversely proportional. Or Boyle's law is a gas law, stating that the pressure and volume of a gas have an inverse relationship, when temperature is held constant.

This empirical relation, formulated by the physicist Robert Boyle in 1662, states that the pressure (p) of a given quantity of gas varies inversely with its volume (v) at constant temperature; i.e., in equation form, pv = k, a constant. The relationship was also discovered by the French physicist Edme Mariotte (1676).

In Boyle's law, the relationship between Pressure (P) and Volume (V) is analyzed. The form of Boyle's law is: P*V = k, where k is a constant and the Temperature is constant. In this equation the mass is constant and the temperature is constant and the air is confined to a compressible and expandable volume.

Boyle's Law FormulaBoyle's law developed by Robert Boyle in 1662, states that if we keep the temperature of a gas constant in a sealed container. Its pressure (P) varies inversely with its volume (V).

one mole of any gas will occupy the same volume. BOYLE'S LAW: PV = k where P = pressure, V = volume, and k = constant. (The temperature of the gas must be constant.)
