# How do Boyle's law and Charles' law differ?

May 17, 2018

Boyle's Law is an inverse relationship between pressure and volume
Charles Law is a direct relationship. between temperature and volume.

#### Explanation:

Boyle's Law is an inverse relationship between pressure and volume. The kinetic theory of matter is fundamental to Boyle
s Law. As the volume decreases the molecules collide more frequently creating more pressure. When the volume and the number of molecules remain constant.

Charles Law is a direct relationship between temperature and volume. When the temperature of the molecules increases the molecules move faster creating more pressure on the container of the gas increasing the volume, if the pressure remains constant and the number of the molecules remains constant. The pressure remains the same because volume increase reliving the pressure.

The differences are that Boyle's Law is a direct relationship while Charles Law is an inverse relationship. Both laws involve volume but one involves pressure and the other temperature.
