Boyle's Law

This lab uses the Ideal Gas Law Apparatus syringe to examine Boyle's Law. Using this apparatus, you will hold the temperature of a gas constant while changing the volume of the gas and measuring the volume and the absolute pressure.

Featured Equipment

550 Universal Physics System

Universal 550 Physics Experiment Bundle

This system provides a complete set of labs for mechanics, heat, light, sound, and electromagnetism.

550 Universal Interface

550 Universal Interface

The 550 is fast, powerful, and incredibly affordable. It offers half the ports and many of the same features as our 850 Interface in a smaller package.

Ideal Gas Law Apparatus

Ideal Gas Law Apparatus

Students can quantitatively look at the relationships between pressure, temperature and volume.

Quad Temperature Sensor

PASPORT Quad Temperature Sensor

Allows any combination of our stainless steel, fast response or skin/surface temperature probes for a wide variety of temperature measurement. For use with PASPORT Interfaces.

Absolute Pressure Sensor

PASPORT Absolute Pressure Sensor

Measures gas pressure from various sources and internal vacuum allows consistent measurement above and below ambient conditions. For use with PASPORT Interfaces.

Many lab activities can be conducted with our Wireless, PASPORT, or even ScienceWorkshop sensors and equipment. For assistance with substituting compatible instruments, contact PASCO Technical Support. We're here to help.
