h can see that PV is more or less a constant value. This shows that Boyle¶s Law is true
because it states that the volume of a fixed mass of gas is inversely proportional to the
pressure of the gas. Therefore, if h plot a graph of p against 1/v and get a straight line
then that means that Boyle¶s Law is correct, this does roughly happen.
