Ideal Gas Law Experiment - EX-5527

EX5527_MAIN.jpg

Overview

In this experiment designed for use with PASCO Capstone software,  the temperature, volume, and pressure of a gas are measured simultaneously to show that they change according to the Ideal Gas Law. Two special cases of the Ideal Gas Law are also examined: constant volume (Gay-Lussac's Law) and constant temperature (Boyle's Law). A syringe is used to vary the volume at constant temperature. A sphere of constant volume is immersed in different temperature water baths to show the change in pressure.

PASCO Advantage:
The Ideal Gas Syringe and Absolute Zero Sphere have a thermistor with small mass that responds quickly to temperature changes.

For the Absolute Zero Apparatus, which has constant volume, the pressure versus temperature graphs have different slopes corresponding to different number of moles in the container.
