If i'm given a table with values where P=x and V=y, what formula would solve for slope using boyle's law?
What is the constant in the Boyle's Law equation? is basically the question.

Boyle's law states that PV=constant = k (which is same as nRT)
rearranging the terms...
V = k/P
which may be rewritten as...
V = k/P + 0
which is similar to...
y = mx + b
y = V
m = k
x = 1/P
b = 0
so a plot of V on the y axis and 1/P on the axis will yield a line with slope = k and intercept = 0
