Boyle's law of gases. Computer artwork explaining the gas laws as described by the combined gas law equation: PV=kT, which shows the relationship between the pressure (P), volume (V), and temperature (T) for a fixed number of gas molecules (spheres), where k is a constant. Here, the volume has been decreased by reducing the size of the container, while the temperature is kept constant. Therefore the pressure increases; this is Boyle's law. The pressure increase is because the molecules have the same amount of energy but less space to move around, meaning they come into contact with the walls of the container more frequently.
