Transcript of Jacques Charles

Jacques Alexandre César Charles

Charles' Law
The volume of a gas increases with the increasing temperature, as long as the pressure on the gas does not change. As with Boyle’s law, the reverse is also true. The volume of a gas shrinks with decreasing temperature.

As a gas is heated, the particles that make up the gas move faster and faster. Because the particles that make up the gas move faster, they strike the walls of their container more often and with more force. This causes the container to expand.
In a hot air balloon, the walls have to expand so instead of increased pressure, the volume increases.
Once the air in a balloon gets hot enough, the net weight of the balloon plus this hot air is less than the weight of an equivalent volume of cold air, and the balloon starts to rise. When the gas in the balloon is allowed to cool, the balloon returns to the ground.
