What is the volume of the air chamber for the TD-8572 or the TD-8572A

PASCO Solution:

The aluminum can for the TD-8572 Heat Engine/Gas Law Apparatus (650-055) is 1.5 inches by 5.43 inches. I calculate the volume as 9.59 cubic inches, or 157 milliliters (0.157 liter).

The aluminum can for the TD-8572A Heat Engine/Gas Law Apparatus (648-14774) is 1.772 inches by 4.39 inches. I calculate the volume as 10.82 cub in inches or 177.4 milliliters (0.17741 liters).

These volumes do not take into account the amount lost when a stopper is pushed into the top of the can. The first image is of the TD-8572. The second image is of the TD-8572A.
