Boyle's law a law stating that the pressure of a given mass of an ideal gas is inversely proportional to its volume at a constant temperature, named for Robert Boyle (1627–91), Irish-born scientist. A founder member of the Royal Society, Boyle put forward a view of matter based on particles which was a precursor of the modern theory of chemical elements. He is best known for his experiments with the air pump.
Boyle's law Volume of a gas at constant temperature is inversely proportional to the pressure. This means that as pressure increases, the volume of a gas at constant temperature decreases. First stated by Robert Boyle in 1662, Boyle's law is a special case of the ideal gas law (involving a hypothetical gas that perfectly obeys the gas laws).
