Gay-Lussac's law calculatorTo find the unknown pressure or temperature at constant volume
The real-life examples of Gay-Lussac's law are the pressure cooker, tyre, and aerosol can.
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.
