# Choose the law that matches this definition As the temperature on a gas increases the volume of the gas must also increase to maintain constant pressure?

The concept of increased temperature calling for an increase in volume to maintain constant pressure can be found in the combined and/or ideal gas law. The combined gas law is PV=kNT, where P is pressure, V is volume, k is Boltzman's constant, N is number of gas molecules and T is temperature. The ideal gas law is PV=nRT where P is pressure, V is volume, n is number of moles of gas, R is gas constant and T is temperature. In both cases a rise in T would call for a rise in V to maintain constant P.

Charles's Law, or the law of volumes, was found in 1787 by Jacques Charles. It says that, for an ideal gas at constant pressure, the volume is directly proportional to its temperature.

On the list of choices that you posted along with the question,

that law doesn't appear.

That was my Thermo teacher, whose name I can't remember. He wrote it

at the top of his hand-out on Boyle's Law, in the 1971 Fall Semester.

At constant pressure, you are dealing with Charles' Law.
