gay lussacs lawGay-Lussac's Law, one of the Gas Laws, states the proportional, that when temperature increases, pressure increases, when pressure decreases, temperature decreases.

 

Gay-Lussac's Law formula

\(\large{ \frac { p_1} {T_1} = \frac { p_2} {T_2} }\)   

Where:

 Units English Metric
\(\large{ p_1 }\) = pressure (use Kelvin) \(\large{\frac{lbf}{in^2}}\) \(\large{Pa}\)
\(\large{ p_2 }\) = pressure (use Kelvin) \(\large{\frac{lbf}{in^2}}\) \(\large{Pa}\)
\(\large{ T_1 }\) = absolute temperature (required for Gay-Lussac's Law) \(\large{ F }\) \(\large{ K  }\)
\(\large{ T_2 }\) = absolute temperature (required for Gay-Lussac's Law) \(\large{ F }\) \(\large{ K  }\)
