  • Step 1
  • In other words, if the temperature increases in a constant volume, the pressure will increase as well.
  • Step 2
  • You will need candles, water, a lighter, a plate and a bottle of some sort to perform this experiment.
  • Step 3
  • Place your candles on top of the plate of water.
  • Quickly flip your bottle so that it covers the plate of water and the candles.
  • Watch the water pressure rise as it increases due to the candle's temperature. Gay-Lussac's law is in action.
