## Subtopics

- Avogadro's law [r]: Is a gas law named after Amedeo Avogadro, who in 1811 hypothesized that
*Equal volumes of gases, at the same temperature and pressure, contain the same number of particles, or molecules.*^{[e]} - Boyle's law [r]: is a special case of the ideal gas law from which one may calculate either the pressure or the volume of gas.
^{[e]} - Charles' law [r]: Is a special case of the ideal gas law, which states:
*At constant pressure, the volume of a given mass of an ideal gas increases or decreases by the same factor as its absolute temperature increases or decreases.*^{[e]} - Gay-Lussac's law [r]:
*Add brief definition or description*

^{[e]} - Specific heat ratio [r]: The ratio of the specific heat of a gas at constant pressure, , to the specific heat at constant volume, , also sometimes called the
*adiabatic index*or the*heat capacity ratio*or the*isentropic expansion factor*.^{[e]} - Van der Waals equation [r]: An equation of state for a fluid composed of particles that have a non-zero size and a pairwise attractive inter-particle force.
