Section 5.1 Early Experiments o n Gas Greek believe the world is made of four elements: Earth, wi nd, fire and water. Chinese believe there are 5 elements: Water, Wood, Earth, Fire, Metal. Jan Baptista Van Helmont (1577-1644): Discovered the ga s made from burning wood is different from air; Evangelista Torricelli (1607-1647): invented barometer to m easure pressure of gas; Otto von Guericke: Demonstrated that vacuum can be mad e by a pump.

Boyle is not always accurate Why Boule got good data that showed line ar behavior between P and 1/P? 1) He used ideal gas . 2) He faked data. 3) His measurement s are not accurate http:// group.chem.iastate.edu/Greenbowe/sections/projectfolder/flashfiles/gaslaw/boyles_
Example Assuming the temperature is the same and the gas follow ideal behavior: 0.050 x 4.0 x106 = 2.0 x 105 L
