Boyle’s Law Boyles law states that when the volume of gas is reduced in the container that holds it, the corresponding pressure increases in direct proportion to the reduction of its volume. This is best illustrated with the tire pump whereby air is trapped inside and when the plunger is pushed down, the chamber became smaller so the pressure rises that would force the air out of its exhaust hole going to the tire.…
