  1. for a given mass of gas at constant temperature, the volume of the gas varies inversely with pressure
    Boyle's law
  2. the volume of a fixed mass of gas is directly proportional to its Kelvin temperature if the pressure is kept constant
    Charles's law
  3. at constant volume and temperature, the total pressure exerted by a mixture of gases is equal to the sum of the partial pressures of the component gases
    Dalton’s law of partial pressures
  4. the rate of effusion of a gas is inversely proportional to the square root of its molar mass; this relationship is also true for the diffusion of gases
    Graham's laws of effusion
  5. the pressure of a gas is directly proportional to the Kelvin temperature if the volume is constant
    Gay-Lussac's law
  6. the relationship PV = nRT, which describes the behavior of an ideal gas
    ideal gas law
  7. the process that occurs when a gas escapes through a tiny hole in its container
    effusion
  8. the tendency of molecules to move toward areas of lower concentration until the concentration is uniform throughout
    diffusion
  9. the contribution each gas in a mixture of gases makes to the total pressure
    partial pressure
  10. a measure of how much the volume of matter decreases under pressure
    compressibility
