Introduction: The purpose of this experiment is to determine an experimental value for absolute zero. This will be achieved by changing the temperature of a fixed amount of gas and recording the changes in volume. Therefore Charles Law can be used because V is proportional to L.

While the beaker is heating up obtain the sample tube containing 2 mercury plugs, a ruler, some rubber bands, a cork, and a thermometer. Using the rubber bands attach the tube and the thermometer to the metric side of the ruler. Once the beaker is heated to the proper temperature attach the cork to the top of
