Charles’ Law

This is an article I found on my old fb account (in which I could never open it again bc I forgot my password) about what I learned in our Chemistry Class back when I was in 10th grade. I was not really into numbers because I dunce at it, so when our chemistry teacher presented a concept rooting from Charles’ law, I haven’t much focused on the formula in arriving with the answer about pressure and volume’s relationship, however, as someone who is in love with metaphors, I tried finding a second degree of meaning out of such chemistry concept. So, this is the article:

Charle’s law has something to do with all of the pressures we’re all facing. If we’ll perform the activity using a deflated balloon that will be placed on the mouth of an Erlenmeyer flask, as it will be heated by the flame underneath, you’ll see a hidden message beyond the tip of an iceberg. 

As it scientifically explained, that at a constant pressure, the volume of gas expands when heated that will cause the inflation of the balloon. Otherwise, when cooled, it contracts. It’s way more about the relationship between volume and temperature of gasses if pressure is at constant pace. 

Carrying the metaphor further, if the pressure increases the volume does the same thing. In reality, we’re all somewhat being experimented as a trial. We are the deflated balloon. At first, we’re being harnessed through the fury furnace of hardships. But this is the only thing to make a diamond stronger—through fire, through high pressure, to increase the volume until we’ll finally become the person God wants us to be.

Like the deflated balloon, it isn’t bound to be just that, it is bound to be bigger for it is the only way to outshine its former shape besides blowing it. 

So if you are having a wave of misfortunes now, in all sorts, remember that the more you’re being challenged the more chances you could take to be stronger. It shouldn’t make you weak, come on, pressured moments call for another level for you to be maximized.

Thus, God’s word is practical as it is written,

And this small and temporary trouble we are facing will bring us a tremendous and eternal glory, much greater than the trouble”.

2 Corinthians 4:7

…and may I add from that old literature. Being pressured comes in various ways. Wanting to get a job, getting ahead with school stuff, pleasing your parents, keeping a relationship going healthy, chasing that childhood dream of yours. May you, in all ways you can, balance the way you want yourself to achieve something. Sometimes we put too much pressure in the pursuit of patching the desire we have in achieving it. Remember that too much pressure will also make things disperse in disorder. That deflated balloon will eventually be bigger, and if given too much pressure to shape it, it will also explode. We don’t want to be exploded in a bad way, aren’t we?

Balance things as if you knew the right formula in dealing with it, because I think you know the real formula in dealing with the world’s seemingly pressuring activities. May we learn to surrender our deflated balloon to God, Whose power and knowledge in solving stuff encompass all scientific solutions in the world (well, He is science Himself, and more than that.)

Thanks to Charles’ Law too, and to ma’am Rebecca for this lifetime lesson. 💙

Always and forever,
