Prof. Mahmood Heyrat Purpose The objectives of this lab are to verify Boyle’s and Charles’s law (at a fixed temperature, the pressure of a fixed amount of an ideal gas is inversely proportional to its volume. Charles’s law states that at a fixed pressure, the volume of a fixed amount of an ideal has is directly proportional to its temperature) using a 2-liter soda bottle and a PASCO cylinder, and to study the equation of state for an ideal gas. Brief Theory The equation of State of an ideal gas can be written as PV= nRT. P = pressure, V = Volume, n # of moles, R = (8.31 J/moleK) universal gas constant, T = 273 + o C Kelvin. The gas is to be studied at room temperature, assumed fixed. P o = Atmospheric pressure = 745/760 * 1.01 * 10 5 Pascal = 99000 A = cross sectional area of the cylinder = (32.5/2000) 2 (pi) = 0.00083 M (kilogram) mg P = P o + mg /A 1/p L = nRT/A – V o /A 0.035 0.343 99413.25 1.0059E-05 0.09 0.055 0.540
