Boyles law

Zach Steen, Curtis schmitz


Determine the relationship between the pressure and volume of a confined gas.The gas we use will be air, and it will be confined in a syringe connected to a Gas Pressure Sensor. When the volume of the syringe is changed by moving the piston, a change occurs in the pressure exerted by the confined gas


1. Prepare the Gas Pressure Sensor and an air sample for data collection

2.Prepare the computer for data collection by opening the file “06 Boyle’s Law” from the Chemistry with Computers folder of Logger Pro

3. Move the piston to position the front edge of the inside black ring (see Figure 2) at the

5.0 mL line on the syringe. Hold the piston firmly in this position until the pressure value stabilizes

4. Continue this procedure for syringe volumes of 9.0, 11.0, 13.0, 15.0, 17.0, and 19.0 mL.

based on the data we collected for the constant the higher the volume gets the higher the constant got.
