Helium has the lowest boiling point of the elements. The slightest change in temp can cause it to vaporize and expand. To prevent pressure explosions, a line from the tank has a "burst disk" in case a of sudden pressure increse. then the diaphragm would rupture and release the gas before pressure was too high. This is an example of which physics law? Charles? Boyle? Ideal? I think possibly Charles because as it warmed up due to the fire, the pressure expanded and it exploded. Temp increase, pressure increase. Does that make sense?

    Charles law? Isn't that constant pressure?

    I am uncertain which of the events you are looking for a "law". When you say "this is an example" I wonder what "this" refers to. The rupturing of the disk? That has nothing to do with gas laws.
