I need help with Boyle's law, and Charles' Law... Please help!?
I have a test tomorrow, including Boyle's and Charles' Law. I don't really understand either of them... Can some one explain them a little bit, and tell me the difference between the two? Thanks! :P (by the way, my test is TOMORROW, so I need to know soon!) thanks a bunch!
haha i accidentally made it 1 week, but i need an answer today!!!! short notice, i know, but i need it for tomorrow's test. thanks!

At constant temperature the volume
occupied by a fixed amount of gas is
inversely proportional to the pressure
on the gas
V=k1/P (where k1 is a proportionality constant)
(at constant temperatue when the pressure on the gas is increased, the volume of gas occupied is decreased, similarly wen d pressure is decreased the volume increases.)
in boyles law temperature remains constant and wen pressure of gas increases volume occupied decreases and vice-versa.
in charles law pressure remains constant and wen d temp increases the volume of the gas also increases. wen temp decreases volume decreases.
"The volume V of a fixed amount of
gas at constant pressure is
proportional to the absolute
or V=k2 T (k2 is a proportionality constant)

there is an inverse relationship between the pressure and volume of a gas (as one goes up, the other goes down). in normal problems, you will be given three values and have to solve for the unknown
there is a direct relationship between the volume of a gas and the temperature (in kelvin).
