In your lab create the graph for pressure vs volume

This preview shows page 1 - 2 out of 2 pages.

In your lab, create the graph for pressure vs. volume. What are the slope and y-intercept of your graph?
3. Does your experimental data for butane verify Boyle’s Law? Explain.
4.
5. What volume would the butane gas sample occupy at a pressure of 2.35 atm?
Conclusions 1. Which of the gases used in this lab obeyed Boyle’s Law?
2. How would you expect a sample of pentane to behave under similar experimental conditions? (propane = C 3 H 8 butane = C 4 H 10 , pentane = C 5 H 12 ). ,
3. Suppose that a student plotted the pressure of propane in atm (y-axis) versus the volume in mL (x-axis). What shape do you expect the graph to have?
4. Suppose 2.00 atm of an ideal gas occupies a volume of 80 mL. What pressure will the gas have when the volume is expanded to 100 mL?
5. Bubble wrap is often used to protect fragile objects during shipping. Bubble wrap tends to pop when stepped on or squeezed. How can you explain this using Boyle’s Law?
