Gay-Lussac's or Amontons's Law for an Ideal Gas

Gay-Lussac's law (or Amontons's law) states that the temperature and pressure of a gas are linearly related. As the temperature increases, so does the pressure, as shown in the plot. The graphic gives an idealized picture of the molecular motion associated with changes of temperature and pressure.
