Charles's law

The volume of a fixed mass of gas, at constant pressure, is directly proportional to the thermodynamic temperature. The law provides a quantitative statement of the familiar rule of thumb that heating a gas causes it to expand. The law can be derived from the ideal gas equation. Named after Jacques Alexandre César Charles (1746-1823).
