Question

# Which one of the following statements best describes Boyle's law?

A

For a fixed mass of gas at constant pressure, its temperature is proportional to its volume.

B

The temperature of fixed mass of gas at a constant pressure is inversely proportional to its volume.

C

For a fixed volume of gas at a constant temperature, the pressure of the gas is inversely proportional to its mass.

D

For fixed mass of gas at constant temperature, the pressure of the gas is inversely proportional to its volume.

Solution

## The correct option is A For fixed mass of gas at constant temperature, the pressure of the gas is inversely proportional to its volume. According to Boyle's law- At constant temperature, the product of pressure and volume of given mass of gas is constant.
