See below for some applications.

#### Explanation:

Some real-life applications of the law are:

Firing a bullet. When gunpowder burns, it creates a significant amount of superheated gas. The high pressure of the hot gas behind the bullet forces it out of the barrel of the gun.

Heating a closed aerosol can. The increased pressure may cause the container to explode. You don't toss an "empty" can of hairspray into afire.

A burning automobile tire. The heat from the burning rubber will cause the air pressure in the tire to increase and cause the weakened tire wall to explode.
