Unformatted text preview: pressure to a gas: He found that the volume of a gas decreased as the pressure was increased Doubling the pressure caused the gas to decrease to one-half its original volume Boyle's Law: The volume of a fixed quantity of gas maintained at constant temperature is inversely proportional to the pressure The value of the constant depends on the temperature and the amount of gas in the sample A plot of V vs. 1/P will give a straight line with slope = constant...
