Physics 152 Lab #2 The Ideal Gas Law Abstract: In this lab focused on ideal gas laws. By looking that the height changes when adding weights while keeping the number of particles and volume constant. There were two experiments with changing temperature. Which meant within the equation: Pressure (P) * Volume (V) = Number of Particles (P) * Boltzmann Constant (Kg) * Temperature the varying value is Temperature with the rest of the values staying constant between the two trials allowing to solve for the pressure. Then there is also the option to solve for T abs (o) after determine the slops by graphing H = h – H piston and 1/Pressure from the before mention equation. The absolute zero (-273.15 o C) with the equation T abs (o) = ( Slope 1 * Temperature 2 – Slope 2 * Temperature 1 )/(Slope 1 – Slope 2 ). Lab 2 Questions 1. (1 point) Was it important to keep the air column sealed for the whole experiment? Why or why not? Yes it was important to keep the air column sealed for the whole experiment. This was important because for this experiment there was an assumption that the number of air particles did not change from trial to trail. So if the air in the column was unsealed in between trial the number of particles would change and amount of air particles inside column is no longer
