Henry's Law relates the solubility of a gas over a solution based on the factors of temperature, volume and pressure.

$\overline{){{\mathbf{S}}}_{{\mathbf{gas}}}{\mathbf{=}}{{\mathbf{k}}}_{{\mathbf{H}}}{\mathbf{·}}{{\mathbf{P}}}_{{\mathbf{gas}}}}$

Where:

Sgas is the solubility
kH is Henry’s Law proportionality constant
Pgas is the partial pressure of gas above the solution
