What are the 4 gas laws?
What does Boyle's law state?
Pressure exerted by a gas is inversely proptional to its volume (P = 1/V)
What does Dalton's law state?
Total pressure of a gas mixture is the sum of the pressures of the individual gases
What does Charles' law state?
Volume occupied by a gas is sirected related to the absolute temperature (V directly proportional to T)
What does Henry's law state?
Amount of gas dissolved in a liquid is determined by the pressure of the gas and its solubility in the liquid
When talking about the pressure and volumes of gas, what does the volume refer to?
The volume of the container that the gas is in
What is core body temperature?
What is ventilation?
