At constant temperature, pressure of a gas is inversely proportional to volume of that gas.
i. e. $P \alpha \frac {1}{V}$
Or
$\frac {P_1}{P_2}= \frac {V_2}{V_1}$
P_{1} V_{1} = P_{2} V_{2}

GRAPHICAL REPRESENTATION

Pressure Volume curve at constant temperature is known as isotherm.

Graph above shows that Boyle's law is strictly not obeyed by gases at all values of P and T but it obeys this law only at low pressure and high temperature i.e., at low density

The above graph is between P and 1/V Question
A weather balloon has a volume of 175L^{ }when filled with hydrogen gas at pressure of 1 bar. Calculate the volume of balloon when it rises to a height where atmospheric pressure is 0.8 bar. Assume that temp. is constant. Answer
P_{1} V_{1} = P_{2} V_{2}
So, V_{2} = 175/.8L

CHARLIE ‘S LAW

At constant pressure, volume of a gas is directly proportional to the temperature. Mathematically: -
V/T = Constant
Or
V_{1} /T_{1} = V_{2}/T_{2}

GRAPHICAL REPRESENTATION

Isobar: - The volume temperature curves at constant pressure are known as Isobars.

This graph shows that experimental graph deviates from straight line. Theoretical and experimental graphs agree at high temperature.

Absolute Zero

The hypothetical temperature at which gases are supposed to occupy zero volume is known as absolute zero temp.

Question
A certain amount of gas at 27^{o} C and 1 bar pressure occupies volume of 25 m^{3}. If pressure is kept constant & temperature is raised to 77^{o} C, what will be the volume of gas? Answer
$ \frac {V_1}{V_2} =\frac {T_1}{T_2}$
$\frac {25}{V_2} =\frac {300}{350}$
V_{2} =29.16 m^{3}

Question
A flask was heated from 27 to 227^{o} C at constant pressure. Calculate the volume of flask if 0.1 dm^{3} of air measured at 227^{o} C was expelled from the flask. Answer
Let V be the volume of Flask
$ \frac {V_1}{V_2} =\frac {T_1}{T_2}$
$\frac {V}{V+.1}=\frac {300}{500}$
V = 0.15 dm^{3}

AVOGARD’S Law

At constant temperature and pressure equal volume of all gases contain equal no. of moles or moles. Mathematically: -
$ V \alpha n$
1)The number of molecules in one mole of a gas has been determined to be 6.022 × 10^{23} and is known as Avogadro constant
2) one mole of each gas at standard temperature and pressure (STP) will have same volume.Standard temperature and pressure means 273.15 K (0°C) temperature and 1 bar (i.e., exactly 10^{5} pascal) pressure. At STP molar volume of an ideal gas or a combination of ideal gases is 22.71098 L mol^{-1}.

GAY LUSSAC ‘S LAW

At constant volume pressure of a given mass of a gas is directly proportional to the temperature.
Mathematically: -
$P \alpha T$
So, P/T =constant

GRAPHICAL REPRESENTATION

Isochors --- The pressure - temperature curve at constant volume are known as Isochors.

Ideal Gas Equation

Ideal Gas

A gas that follows Boyle’s law, Charles law & Avogadro’s law strictly is known as an ideal gas.Real gases follow these laws under specific conditions: - Ideal gases equation
According to Boyle's Law $V \alpha \frac {1}{P}$
According to Charles Law $V \alpha T$
According to Avogadro Law $V \alpha n$
On Combining
$V \alpha \frac{nT}{P}$
$P V \alpha nT$
P V = n R T
R = Universal gas constant and equation is called Ideal gas equation
R=8.314 J/K moles

If temperature, volume and pressure of a fixed amount of gas vary from T1, V1 and p1 to T2, V2 and p2 then we can write
$P_{1}V_{1}=nRT_{1}$ or $\frac {P_1V_1}{T_1}=nR$
$P_{2}V_{2}=nRT_{2}$ or $\frac {P_2V_2}{T_2}=nR$
or
$\frac {P_1V_1}{T_1}=\frac {P_2V_2}{T_2}$

This is a very useful equation. If out of six, values of five variables are known, the value of unknown variable can be
calculated from the equation This equation is also known as Combined gas law

P V = n R T
n= PV/RT
m/M = PV/RT
(m/V)(1/M) = P/RT
Now d=m/V
d/M=P/RT
or
M=dRT/P
Or
