Caption: Animation showing Boyle's law in an ideal gas. The dials at right show the pressure (P), temperature (T) and volume (V) of the gas. Boyle's law states that, at a constant temperature, an increase in the volume of a gas causes a proportional decrease in pressure. When the arms pull the box to a larger volume, the particles of gas (grey) collide far less frequently with the sides of the container, which is seen as decreased pressure. The law is named after Robert Boyle (1627-1691), who first published it in 1662. This animation is part of a series on the ideal gas laws. See K003 3525-3530 for the complete set.
