Who's law is it?

  1. Aug 18, 2010 #1
    Who made the pressure law the the product of the temperature by the pressure with fixed volume is a constant?
    wikipedia says
    that he is associated erroneously
    but here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gas_laws#Gay-Lussac.27s_Law
    it says that gay lussac made it.
    also the book I am using called
    Fundamentals of physical chemistry by Samuel H maron doesn't state the gay Lussac made such law.

    Hi Madah12,

    You may want to look up Charles's Law and Boyle's Law. These may help you out. As far as the weight of trust you place in Wikipedia... that is another issue. I recommend using a stronger and more credible source for scientific information.
