Dalton's Law of Partial Pressures

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

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.

Avogadro's Law

Avogadro's law is also known as Avogadro's hypothesis or Avogadro's principle. The law dictates the relationship between the volume of a gas to the number of molecules the gas possesses. This law like Boyle's law, Charles's law, and Gay-Lussac's law is a specific case of the ideal gas law. This law is named after Italian scientist Amedeo Avogadro. He formulated this relationship in 1811. After conducting the experiments, Avogadro hypothesized that the equal volumes of gas contain the equal number of particles.

Gay-Lussac's Law

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.

Boyle's Law

Boyle's Law is a very important gas law in chemistry and physics. It is also known as Mariotte's law or the Boyle-Mariotte law. The law is the oldest gas law. Boyle's law along with Charles’s law, Gay-Lussac’s law, and Avogadro’s law forms the ideal gas law. The law correlates how the pressure of a gas increases with a decrease in the volume of the gas.
