Boyle's law (sometimes referred to as the Boyle–Mariotte law) is an experimental gas law which describes how the pressure of a gas tend to decrease as the volume of a gas increases. A modern statement of Boyle's law is:

The absolute pressure exerted by given mass of an ideal gas is inversely proportional to the volume it occupies if the temperature and amount of gas remain unchanged within a closed system.
