An ideal gas is expected to have a constant value of PV, as shown by the dotted line. Carbon dioxide shows the largest change in PV, and this change is actually quite small: PV changes from about 22.39 L . atm at 0.25 atm to 22.26 L . atm at 1.00 atm. Thus Boyle's law is a good approximation at these relatively low pressures. Results for several gases at pressures below 1 atm. are shown in Fig. 5.6. Note the very small changes that occur in the product PV as the pressure is changed at these low pres-sures. Such changes become more significant at much higher pressures, where the com-plex nature of the dependence
