Robert Boyle (1627-1691). Son of Earl of Cork, Ireland.
Charles’s and Gay-Lussac’s findings can be stated as: At constant pressure, the volume of a fixed amount of a gas is directly proportional to its absolute temperature
This relationship is referred to as Charles’s law and is stated mathematically as
V = (constant) [T (in K)] or V T (in K, at constant P).

11.2 L of a gas at STP = 0.500 mole
44.8 L of a gas at STP = ? Moles
The ideal gas law assumes that all gases behave identically. If V, T, and n for each gas in a mixture are known, the pressure of each gas, its partial pressure, can be calculated. Holding V and T constant, P is directly proportional to n:
P = n(RT/V) = n(constant)
Generally, for a mixture oficomponents, the total pressure is given by
Pt = (n1 + n2 + n3 + - - - +ni) (RT/V).
The above equation makes it clear that, at constant T and V, P depends on only the total number of moles of gas present, whether the gas is a single chemical species or a mixture of gaseous species. Nothing in the equation depends on the nature of the gas, only on the quantity.
The total pressure exerted by a mixture of gases is the sum of the partial pressures of component gases. This law is known as Dalton’s law of partial pressures and can be written mathematically as
Pt= P1+ P2+ P3- - - + Pi
where Pt is the total pressure and the other terms are the partial pressures of the individual gases.

accounts for the behavior of real gases at low temperatures and high pressures.
At large volumes a and b are relatively small and the van der Waal’s equation reduces to the ideal gas law at high temperatures and low pressures.
