    Fugacity is a term used by Boyle and is related to the pressure but implies the property or tendency of a gas to expand. Here are some details you may want to look at: http://opera.answers.com/fugacity

    It's also a parameter in statistical mechanics involving chemical potential and absolute temperature. Pressure can be linked with fugacity via partial derivatives and a use of Clapeyron-Mendeleev equation.
