  1. gay-lussac

    Gay-Lussac is a term most commonly associated with Joseph Louis Gay-Lussac, a French chemist and physicist who made significant contributions to the field of science in the early 19th century. Gay-Lussac is usually linked to various laws relating to gases: 1. Gay-Lussac's Law of combining volumes (also known as the law of combining volumes of gases) states that the ratio of the volumes of gases involved in a chemical reaction are directly proportional to the ratios of the number of molecules (or moles) of these gases, provided all gases are at the same temperature and pressure. 2. Gay-Lussac's law in Thermodynamics (also known as Amontons's law and sometimes referred to as pressure law) states that the pressure of an ideal gas is directly proportional to its absolute temperature (in Kelvin), provided the volume remains constant.
