What is Charles's Law?: Definition with Example

1.    Charles Law: Charles and Gay Lussac performed several experiments on gases independently to improve upon hot air balloon technology. Their investigations showed that for a fixed mass of a gas at constant pressure, volume of a gas increases on increasing temperature and decreases on cooling. They found that for each degree rise in temperature, volume of a gas increases by 1/ 273.15 of the original volume of the gas at 0 ° C.

      Charles’ law, states that pressure remaining constant, the volume of a fixed mass of a gas is directly proportional to its absolute temperature.
