## ideal gas lawA law relating the pressure ( P),
temperature (T), and volume
(V) of an ideal gas. Mathematically, the
ideal gas law can be written as:
The ideal gas law implies that at constant temperature ( T), the
product of pressure and volume (pV) is constant (Boyle's
law) and at a constant pressure, the volume is proportional to the temperature
(Charles' law). See also equation
of state. ## Related categories• HEAT AND THERMODYNAMICS• PHYSICAL CHEMISTRY | |||||
