It has to do with this thermodynamic equation:

q = mCP(Tf-Ti)

q heat

m mass

Cp heat capacity

Ti initial temperature

Tf final temperature

### What is Charles and Boyles law?

BOYLES LAW The relationship between volume and pressure.
Remember that the law assumes the temperature to be constant. or V1
= original volume V2 = new volume P1 = original pressure P2 = new
pressure CHARLES LAW The relationship between temperature and
volume. Remember that the law assumes that the pressure remains
constant. V1 = original volume T1 = original absolute temperature
V2 = new volume T2 = new absolute temperature P1 = Initial Pressure
V1= Initial Volume T1= Initial Temperature P2= Final Pressure V2=
