BOYLE’S LAW

Statement 1:

According to first statement of Boyle’s Law:

“Volume of the known mass of gas is inversely proportional to the pressure, if temperature is kept constant”.

Mathematical Form:

Mathematically,

V ∞ 1/P

=> V = K 1/P

=> PV = K (Constant)

P1V1 = P2V2 = … = K

=> P1V1 = P2V2

The above equation is mathematical form of Boyle’s Law.

Statement II:

According to second statement of Boyle’s Law.

“The product of the pressure and volume of the known mass of the gas remain constant if the temperature is kept constant”.

Statement III:

According to third statement of Boyle’s Law.

“The product of pressure and volume of a gas is directly proportional to the mass of a gas, provided that temperature is kept constant”.

Mathematical Form:

PV ∞ m

=> PV = Km

=> PV/m = K

=> P1V1/m1 = P2V2/m2
