# Boyle's law

Boyle's law states that

$PV\vert_T=k$

where $P$ is the pressure, $V$ is the volume and $k$ is a constant. This holds true for an ideal gas.

## History

Boyle's law is attributed to both Robert Boyle and to Edme Mariotte. However, it seems that it was originally proposed by Henry Power in 1661 [1].
