2 prepare a graph of the data with temperature in

This preview shows page 4 - 6 out of 6 pages.

2. Prepare a graph of the data, with temperature (in Kelvin) on the X-axis and volume (mL) on the Y-axis. Draw a straight line through the data points.
3. How do the results for methane compare to those for butane? Does your experimental data verify Charles's Law?
4. What volume would the gas sample occupy at 0 °C, and at 70 °C?
5. What variables are constant during this experiment?
6. Why didn’t we take a volume reading for the butane gas at zero °C?
Conclusions: The purpose of this experiment was to be able to determine the effect of temperature on the volume of gas when the pressure is constant and to verify Charles’ Law. The data gathered from the two experiments reveals that as temperature increase, the volume increases. When temperature decreases, the volume also decreases. There is a direct relationship between temperature and the volume of gas.
