Henry's law

The concentration of a chemical species in a liquid solution is proportional to its gas- phase partial pressure.

The constant of proportionality is called the Henry's law constant and provides a measure of the solubility of a particular compound. For molecules that form ions in solution, Henry's law is modified to take account of the increased solubility as a function of pH.
