Physics 320 Experiment 3 Boyle’s Law: Pressure and Volume of a Gas at Constant Temperature DATA SHEET Name: Bill Zacharias Date: 04/06/2010 Prediction How does the gas pressure change as the volume in a sealed syringe decreases? As the volume in the syringe decreases the pressure will increase. Data 1. Paste a copy of your pressure-volume graph here. Questions 1. Judging from your data, do the pressure and volume seem to be directly or inversely proportional? Does this agree with Boyle’s Law? 2. 2. The data shows an inversely proportional relationship, which does agree with Boyle's Law. Phys320 Lab Page 1 Experiment 3

Unformatted text preview: As the volume went from 20ml to 10ml the pressure almost doubles It goes from 100 kPa to 200 kPa at 10ml. 4. What are possible sources of errors or limitations in this experiment? For each one, try to decide what effect it might have on the experimental results. Possible leaks in the closed system could cause error and limited pressure readings. A bad seal or coupling what make it so that proper readings would also never occur. Temperature would also have an effect on the readings, raising the pressure if it was heated and lowering the pressure if it was cooled. Phys320 Lab Page 2 Experiment 5...
