Charles' Gas Law

For a fixed mass of gas at constant pressure the volume is directly proportional to the temperature [Kelvin]. Therefore, if the pressure remains constant, the volume of a gas will increase with the increase of temperature. It was developed by Jacques Charles and is also known as the Charles-Guy-Lussac Law.

Therefore, if pressure and amount of gas remain constant:

where
V1 = initial volume [m3]
T1 = initial temperature [K]
V2 = final volume [m3]
T2 = final temperature [K]
