𝑽𝟏 𝑷𝟏 = 𝑽𝟐 𝑷𝟐
 𝑽𝟏 = 4.0 liter The volume of a gas
 𝑽𝟐 = 2.0 liter = 1/2 is inversely proportional
 𝑷𝟏 = 1.5atm to each other at constant
 𝑷𝟐 = ? temperature and vice versa.
𝑷𝟐 = 𝑽𝟏 𝑷𝟏
𝑷𝟐 = 4.0L x 1.5atm

atmospheric pressure is approximately
0.33 atm. Assuming that the
temperature is constant, compute for
the final volume of the balloon.

gas tank has a pressure of
0.75atm. At what volume would
its pressure be increased by 1/3?

Charles Law
The volume-temperature
relationship in gases (k=V/T)
was first determined by and
named after Jacques
Charles law states that
at constant pressure,
the volume of a gas is
directly proportional to
its temperature.
