Top best answers to the question «What gas law is applied in breathing»

We can breathe air in and out of our lungs because of Boyle's law. According to Boyle's law, if a given amount of gas has a constant temperature, increasing its volume decreases its pressure, and vice-versa. When you inhale, muscles increase the size of your thoracic (chest) cavity and expand your lungs.

Boyle's law is a gas law that describes the relationship between the pressure and volume of gas for a mass and temperature. This law is the mechanism by which the human respiratory system functions.
