Abstract

The kinetic-theory “explanation” of the experimentally found relation PV = constant was derived for particles of negligible size and having no intermolecular forces. Careful experimental study over a wide range of pressures and temperatures reveals departures from Boyle’s Law, departures that can be explained by taking into account the appreciable sizes of the molecules and the attractive forces among them.
