# Boyle's Law

Characterizes the relationship between pressure and volume of an ideal gas. The law states that the pressure of a gas in an enclosed container is inversely proportional to the gas' volume. This means that the volume of an ideal gas will decrease as more pressure is applied. The greater the pressure applied to a fixed amount of gas, the less volume that gas will fill.

This is one of the relationships that can be derived from the idea gas laws.

The formula describing Boyle’s Law is:

P_{1}V_{1}=P_{2}V_{2}

Where, P_{1} is the pressure of a quantity of gas with a volume of V_{1} and P_{2} is the pressure of the same quantity of gas when it has a volume of V_{2}.
