Errors In Avogadro's Law
For instance, Avogadro’s Law helped introduce the ideal gas law theory which stated how pressure, volume, temperature, and moles interact with each other.
While conducting the experiment, there were multiple opportunities for errors to arise. One of the most drastic errors were the air bubbles stuck inside the eudiometer. The air bubbles contained hydrogen gas and were stuck on the sides instead of rising up into the collection of gas. This would have shifted the volume of the hydrogen gas higher than the actual value and ultimately increase the molar volume of the gas. Another example of an error is the measuring of the ribbon of magnesium. The ribbon of magnesium was not straightened out all the way, and this resulted in a length which is lower than the real value. When converting length into mass and into moles, there would be a significant margin of error. The error would shift the molar volume much lower than it is. Another way the measuring of magnesium could have resulted in the error was
