Unformatted text preview: The reason our number was not the exact gas constant is because of the sources of error that could’ve arose in this experiment. Since the amount of NAOH wasn’t measured exactly and when the buret is flipped some slips out causing a possible source of error. In parts B pressure and volume are looked at with everything else constant to see the relationship between volume and pressure. Air is pumped into a pressure reader and the pressure for each volume of air is recorded. The relationship between pressure and volume was found in this experiment to be pressure increases as volume decreases. Part C was similar to part B, however pressure and temperature were looked at instead of pressure and volume. In this experiment a flask is placed in both heat and cold to see the relationship between pressure and temperature. After recording all the data, this experiment determined that as temperature increases pressure increases, and as temperature decreases, pressure decreases....
