Boyle's Law

Boyle's Law states that the volume of a sample of gas is inversely proportional to the pressure applied to the gas if the temperature is kept constant.

According to Boyle's Law:

P1V1 = constant

After the change in pressure and volume,

P2V2 = constant

Combine the two products:

P1V1 = P2V2[1]

When any three of the four quantities in the equation are known, the fourth can be calculated. For example, if P1, V1 and P2 are known, then V2 can be solved by the following equation:

V2 = P1V1 / P2
