Boyle's book, New experiments physico-mechnical Touching The Spring of the Air and its effects

Robert Boyle publish his law of ideal gas

Boyle’s law was first published in 1662 by Robert Boyle in his book titled; New Experiments Physico-Mechanical, Touching the Spring of the Air, and its Effects. His theory is a fundamental principle of physics that applies to all diving as well as other common things.

Boyle’s law states that, at a constant temperature, the product of the pressure and volume of a given mass of an ideal gas in a closed system is always constant.This have allowed us to understand many aspects of diving. Simple things like equalization, as well as a foundation of further research that lead to the decompression theory we know and use today.
