Chemistry Laws Named After Scientists

Can you name the chemistry law, equation or principle that is named after an individual?

Description of LawName of Law
PV = constant for a given amount of a gas at a constant temperature
Ptot = Pa + Pb + …..
Electrons in degenerate orbitals enter singly with parallel spins
V1/T1 = V2/T2

The weight of any element liberated during electrolysis is proportional to the quantity of electricity passing through the cell and also to the equivalent weight of the element.
k = Ae( –Ea/RT)
[P + a(n/V)2](V-nb) = nRT
