    Boyle's law (sometimes referred to as the Boyle-Mariotte law) is one of several gas laws and a special case of the ideal gas law. Boyle's law describes the inversely proportional relationship between the absolute pressure and volume of a gas, if the temperature is kept constant within a closed system.

    The law was named after chemist and physicist Robert Boyle, who published the original law in 1662. The law itself can be defined as follows:

    For a fixed amount of gas kept at a fixed temperature, P and V are inversely proportional (while one increases, the other decreases).

    Boyle's law states that pressure remaining constant the volume of a given mass of dry gas is inversely proportional to the pressure applied on it
