Origin of Charles's lawafter J. Charles (1746-1823), French physicist
The definition of Charles's Law is an explanation of how gas expands when heated.
An example of Charles's Law is the theory that shows why a pressurized area might explode if the temperature changes.
the statement that for a body of ideal gas at constant pressure the volume is directly proportional to the absolute temperature
The physical law stating that the volume of a fixed mass of gas held at a constant pressure varies directly with the absolute temperature.
Origin of Charles's lawAfter Jacques Alexandre César Charles (1746-1823), French physicist and inventor
The principle that the volume of a given mass of an ideal gas is proportional to its temperature as long as its pressure remains constant. Charles's law is a subcase of the ideal gas law.
