My lecturer writes the following in his lecture notes:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

" P [tex]\propto[/tex] t for a fixed volume of gas,

P = P_{0}(1+[tex]\alpha[/tex]t)

Using the Celcius scale of temperature, we find [tex]\alpha \cong[/tex] 1/273."

Is P really proportional to t?

How do we find [tex]\alpha \cong[/tex] 1/273 using the Celcius temp scale?
