You will experimentally determine the relationship between pressure and volume as stated in Boyles law.
After completing this tutorial, you will be able to complete the following:
Gas particles are in constant motion. Pressure and volume are influenced by this motion under conditions that are constantly changing. When temperature in Kelvin is held constant, pressure and volume have an inverse relationship. This means that as pressure increases, the volume of a sample decreases. Similarly, as pressure decreases, volume increases. The equation to show this relationship, called Boyle's law, is . This equation shows that the conditions of pressure and volume change while temperature is kept constant.
