Unformatted text preview: temperature. According to the ideal gas law (PV =nRT), pressure and volume are directly related to temperature while pressure and volume are inversely related to each other. As a result, precautions were taken in order to eliminate or minimize the effect of changes in these conditions. Before we placed our vials in our water, for example, we waited seven minutes so that the pressure in each vial could equalize. In addition, ice was added whenever possible when the temperature rose and our group avoided affecting our volume readings by accidently hitting the table....
