Boyle's law relates what two quantities?
for a given mass of gas at constant temperature, the volume of the gas varies inversely with pressure

P1V1 = P2V2
Charles's law relates what two quantities?
volume of a fixed mass of gas is directly proportional to its Kelvin temperature if the pressure is kept constant

V1/T1 = V2/T2
Gay Lussac's law relates what two quantities?
pressure of a gas is directly proportional to the Kelvin temperature if the volume remains constant

P1/T1 = P2/T2
What expression combines the 3 gas laws?
combined gas law

(P1 x V1)/ = (P2 x V2)/
T1 T2
What is the expression of the ideal gas law? and what does R represent?
P x V = n x R x T (PvNRT)

R = ideal gas constant = 8.31
Avogadro's Hypothesis
Equal volumes of gases at the same temperature and pressure contain equal numbers of particles
Dalton's law of partial pressures
At constant volume and temperature, the total pressure exerted by a mixture of gases is equal to the sum of the partial pressure of the component gases
