Adebayo Adesina 106223646 PHYSICS 133 EXPERIMENT NO. 9 GAS THERMOMETRY, OR THE QUEST FOR THE ABSOLUTE ZERO Introduction: “The kinetic theory of gases states that an ideal gas will obey the relation pV = nRT where, in SI units, p is the pressure in Pascals, V is the volume in m 3 , n is the number of moles of gas, R is the gas constant (8.31 J/mol K), and T is the absolute temperature in K. When V and n are kept constant, we see that equation (1) gives a linear relationship between p and T . Using the pressure and temperature characteristics of air, we will estimate the absolute zero of temperature
