  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
  8. the tendency of molecules to move toward areas of lower concentration until the concentration is uniform throughout
  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
