History

Boyle wished to turn chemisty into a qunatitative science.

Robert Boyle was born at Lismore Castle in Munster, Ireland,(1627-1691). He was the 14th child of Earl of Cork. Boyle was tutored at home as a young man then attended Oxford university.

Boyle believed that chemistry, the behavior of substances, could be explained through the motion of atoms, which in turn could be understood through mechanics

Boyle's law: The absolute pressure exerted by a given mass of an ideal gas is inversely proportional to the volume it occupies if the temperature and amount of gas remain unchanged within a closed system.
