Physical and chemical laws describing the properties and behavior of gases. This tag currently applies to properties and laws concerning both ideal and real gases.

Physical and chemical laws describing the properties and behavior of gases; relationships between the pressure, volume, and temperatures of gases. Specific examples include, but are not limited to:

  • Ideal gas law: that gives us the ideal gas equation: pV = nRT
  • Henry's law: relates the mole fraction of a gas dissolved in solution to its partial pressure
  • Dalton's law: relates the partial pressure of gases to their mole fraction in the container
  • Raoult's law: relates the vapour pressure of immiscible solvents with their mole fractions
  • Charles' law: relates volume to temperature at constant pressure
  • Gay-Lussac's law: refers to two different laws: 1) The ratio between the volumes of the reactant gases and the gaseous products can be expressed in simple whole numbers. 2) The pressure of a gas of fixed mass and fixed volume is directly proportional to the gas's absolute temperature.
  • Avogadro's law: equal volumes of all gases, at the same temperature and pressure, have the same number of molecules
  • Amagat's law: According to Amagat’s law of partial volume, the total volume of a non-reacting mixture of gases at constant temperature and pressure should be equal to the sum of the individual partial volumes of the constituent gases
  • Graham's law: relates the rate of diffusion of a gas to its molar mass
