He denied that gaseous atoms could have parts, although compound gases could.
The stomata serve for all gaseous interchange between the plant and the surrounding air.
The organism is largely dependent for its vital processes upon gaseous interchanges.
Hence the gaseous atoms of hydrogen and oxygen could not have parts.
This law states that: - gases combine with one another in simple proportions by volume, and the volume of the product (if gaseous) has a simple ratio to the volumes of the original mixtures; in other words, the densities of gases are simply related to their combining weights.
