Boyles law: PV=K, P1V1=P2V2

Boyles law Boyle’s law states that the pressure of an ideal gas increases as its container volume decreases. The volume of an ideal gas is inversely proportional to its absolute pressure at a constant temperature. Equation PV = K Where P = pressure V = Volume K Is the

Adaptive immunity: Everything you need to know

Adaptive immunity is the body’s ability to recognize and mount an effective immune response against invaders whether bacteria, protozoa, or viruses. Adaptive immunity relies on antibodies that are produced by differentiation of B cells, and which recognize antigens. Antigens are molecules that trigger an immune response and maybe a
