how does boles law came into discover

Boyle's law is based on experiments with air. Boyle used a closed J-shaped tube and after pouring mercury from one side he forced the air on the other side to contract under the pressure of mercury. After repeating the experiment several times and using different amount of mercury he found that under controlled conditions, the pressure of a gas is inversely proportional to the volume occupied by it.
