Boyle studied the relationship between the pressure of a trapped gas and its volume. The data obtained by him shows that the product of pressure and volume for the trapped air sample is constant at a constant temperature.

if volume of the gas increases, its pressure decreases, and vice versa. mathematically, if the volume of the gas is

0.860 atm x 11.2 L =
