Recall that the ideal gas law is:
The pressure and volume of a gas are related to the number of moles, gas constant and temperature. The value nRT is constant.
Boyles Law: For a fixed quantity of gas at constant temperature, the volume of the gas is inversely proportional to its pressure.
What would a plot of P versus 1/V look like for a fixed quantity of gas at a fixed temperature?
