Answer

Charles's Law is NOT an inverse relationship. It is a direct relationship that relates the temperature and volume of an enclosed gas. Boyle's law is the only one of the three choices that represents an inverse relationship. As the pressure of a gas increases, the volume decreases given a constant temperature. Gay-Lussac's law represents a direct relationship between the temperature and pressure of a gas mixture. It does not represent an inverse relationship.
