## The Law of Gay-Lussac

When the temperature of a gas changes from 0°C by one degree, the volume changes by 1/273 of the original value:

$V = V_0 + \frac{\Delta T}{273k} \times V_0$

or

$V = V_0 \left(1+ \frac{\left \Delta T}{273k} \right)$

From this law, Lord Kelvin founded the absolute scale for the temperature, in which 0 Kelvin = absolute zero = 273.15 degrees Celsius.

Boyles' Law
describes the relationship between volume and pressure, where temperature and mass (number of particles) must stay constant.
Charles' Gesetz
describes the relationship between volume and temperature, where pressure and mass stay constant.
