Charles’ law states that for a fixed mass of a gas at constant pressure, the volume is directly proportional to temperature (K). 

V ∝ T (or) \(\frac{V}{T}\) = Constant

Volume vs Temperature: If a balloon is moved from an ice water bath to a boiling water bath, the gas molecules inside move faster due to increased temperature and hence the volume increases.
