Dalton's law is also known as the law of partial pressure or Gibbs-Dalton law (rarely). The law describes the relationship between the total pressure of a mixture of non-reacting ideal gases and the partial pressures of each individual component. Dalton's law is valid for ideal gases. The law is similar to Amagat's law of additive volumes.
Amagat's law of additive volumes is the law of partial volumes. The law relates the total volume of a mixture with the volumes of individual components. Amagat's law is very similar to Dalton's law of partial pressure. The law is only valid for ideal gases. The law is named after Emile Amagat who was a French Physicist. He published his law of partial volumes in 1880.
Gay-Lussac's law is also known as pressure law or Amontons's law. The law correlates how the pressure of a gas increases with an increase in temperature. This law is named after French chemist Joseph Louis Gay-Lussac. He formulated this relationship in 1808. Gay-Lussac's law is similar to Charles's law, the only difference is the “volume” term in Charles's law is interchanged by the “pressure” term in Gay-Lussac's law.
