Then it became as boring as Boyle's Law and I realised that I cared not for gas expansion, fulcrums and amperes.
The dialogue bombards the viewer with so much forensic science and legalese, I found myself scribbling down Boyle's Law, fully expecting to be tested on it at some point.
He details, for instance, how a person on the ground can measure the height of a tall building and how Boyle's law defines the relationship of volume and pressure for a perfect gas.
By his ingenious investigations, it was given to our countryman Van der Waals to shed the full light of theory on the deviations from Boyle's law and on the continuity of the gaseous and the liquid state, and to explain this from the motion of molecules.
Another student at Sunapee Middle High School in New Hampshire used digital photographs and a PowerPoint slide presentation to document a physics lab on Boyle's Law, which proves that an increase in gas pressure decreases the volume, and vice versa.
Boyle's law states that at a constant temperature, the volume of a gas is inversely proportional to its pressure; therefore, if the pressure of gas doubles, its volume is compressed in half.
Most students used stuff like Boyle's Law (gas cools off when it expands and heats up when it is compressed).
