The Charles Law Calculator computes the initial and final volumes and temperatures using Charles Law: (V1•T2 = V2•T1 ). The calculator automatically hands numerous temperature and volume units . The formula used in these computations are all derived from the simple Charles Law relationship (click on a parameter):
V1 • T2 = V2 • T1
See YouTube video instructions.
Charles Law is represented mathematically as: V/T = k as the animated image below represents. Image courtesy of Wikipedia
There are many applications for this equation where you can measure the temperature and volume conditions before and after changes to either volume of temperature of a fixed amount of gas.
Here are some examples:
- Charles Law computing the temperature of a fixed mass of gas which results when the volume changes
- Charles Law computing the starting temperature of a fixed mass of gas before a change in volume occurred
- Charles Law computing the volume of a fixed mass of gas after it undergoes a temperature change
- Charles Law computing the starting volume of a fixed mass of gas before it underwent a temperature change
Charles' law is also known as the law of volumes. It is an experimentalwhich describes how tend to expand when heated. A modern statement of Charles's law is:
When the pressure on a sample of a dry gas is held constant, the Kelvin temperature and the volume will be directly related.
