Question: What Is The Formula For Charles' Law?

Charles' Law is a special case of the ideal gas law. This law only applies to ideal gases held at a constant volume allowing only the pressure and temperature to change.

Answer: Charles' Law is expressed as:

Vi/Ti = Vf/Tf

where
Vi = initial volume
Ti = initial absolute temperature
Vf = final volume
Tf = final absolute temperature

It is extremely important to remember the temperatures are absolute temperatures measured in Kelvin, NOT °C or °F.
