Joseph Louis Gay-Lussac (December 6, – May 9, ) was a French chemist and physicist whose discovery of the law of combining volumes of gases in chemical reactions paved the way for our understanding of molecules and also demonstrated that different gases expand at the same rate when subject to an increase in temperature at constant pressure.

Gay-Lussac's law (more correctly referred to as Amontons's law) states that the pressure of a given mass of gas varies directly with the absolute temperature of the gas, when the volume is kept constant.

Mathematically, it can be written as:. Gay-Lussac is incorrectly recognized for the Pressure Law which established that the pressure of an enclosed gas is directly proportional to its.
