MODULE 3 UNIT 3Experiment 1BOYLE’S LAWThe volume of a given sample of gas at constant temperature varies inversely with the pressure. (Higher pressure = Lowered Volume, Lower Pressure = Higher/Larger Volume)IMPORTANT DEFINITIONSVolume: amount of three-dimensional space occupied by a substanceTemperature: measure of the random motions (average kinetic energy) of the components of a substancePressure: force per unit areaGO TO THIS WEBSITEAnimated Boyle’s LawStudy the animation at this website. Note that the temperature is held constant at 300°C. Note the relationship between the volume (when the gas is compressed into a smaller volume and the pressure. Volume V and pressure P are shown in thegraph to the right of the animation. Answer this question: At a constant temperature, when volume is decreased, what happens to pressure?Read the information about Boyle’s Law, on this web page.Next, go to this website: What factors influence the pressure of a gas in a container?1.Familiarize yourself with the animation.2.There is a beaker containing a gas. It sits on a hotplate. A thermometer measures temperature in degrees Celsius. Click on the ‘Temperature’ button, above the thermometer. Now, you can adjust the temperature, by
