Luke Wyatt Experiment 106 30/04/07 Experiment 106: Measurement of Atmospheric Pressure Using a Boyle’s Law Apparatus Risk Assessment The risks involved with this experiment are outlined below 1. Chemical – Toxic – High Risk 2. Mechanical – Low Risk Experiment Aim The aim of the experiment is to measure the atmospheric pressure using the Boyle’s law apparatus, by measuring the volume and difference in mercury levels and plotting them on a graph. Below is a list of all the apparatus which was used in the experiment Mercury Glass Tube of uniform bore closed at one end Plastic Tube Glass tube of uniform bore open at one end Below is a diagram of how the apparatus was set up in order to collect the results. 1of 5
