Purpose : To determine the quantitative relationship between pressure and volume at constant temperature, and from that relationship plot a graph showing absolute zero. Procedure : Refer to lab text. Data : Boyle’s Law Experimental barometric pressure: 762.4 mm Hg (torr) VP of water at 19 degrees C = 16.48 torr Corrected pressure of dry air = 745.92 torr Experimental vol. (V) (ml) Hg equivalent of water column (torr) Corrected pressure of dry gas (P) (torr) PV (torr) (ml x 10 -4 ) a.) initial = 35.3 ml None 745.92 torr 2.6331 b.) 0.5 m above = 33.7 ml 37.0 torr 782.92 torr 2.6384 c.) 1 m above = 32.2 ml 74.1 torr 820.02 torr 2.6405 d.) 0.5 m below = 36.5 ml -37.0 torr 708.92 torr 2.5876 e.) 1 m below = 39.4 ml -74.1 torr 671.82 torr 2.6470 Charles’ Law Temp. of water = 19.1 degrees C Flask (temp degrees C) Volume of gas (ml) Pressure dry gas P D Pressure in flask P F Pressure flask

The goal of this experiment to determine the quantitative relationship between pressure and volume at constant temperature, and from that relationship plot a graph showing absolute zero was achieved, with some error as stated above. This could have been caused by many things, including human error and moisture inside the stopper we used while boiling the water and comparing the pressures....
