Charles's Law

Ariel Prichard, Sheridan Miller, Kasey Rodriguez

The Law Itself

-Charles’s law states that if a given quantity of gas is held at a constant pressure, its volume is directly proportional to the absolute temperature.

-As the temperature of the gas increases, the gas molecules will begin to move around more quickly and hit the walls of their container with more force the volume will increase.

Real Life Example

A real life example of Charles's law is leaving a basketball out in the cold weather. When a basketball is left in a cold garage or outside during the cold months, it loses its air inside (or volume). This is showing, with constant pressure, if the temperature drops, the volume decreases also. Once you bring the ball back into a warm temperature, it starts to gain its volume back, showing again that with constant pressure the temperature and volume are increasing.
