LAWS USED IN EVERY DAY LIFE!!
How is it being used?
Guns demonstrate the Gay-Lussac law through temperature and pressure. In a gun there is gunpowder, contained in that is 75% of KNO3 (potassium nitrate), 15% of C (charcoal), and 10% of S (sulfur). The KNO3 decomposes at a high temperature (T) that provides oxygen for the reaction. The mixture must be made correctly to make the reaction occur. From that mixture when in the gun burns at a high amount of heat then developing an extreme amount of pressure behind the bullet. From that force it exerts the pressure by shooting out the bullet putting a second wave of heat and pressure.
