• ## Boyle's Law

Unlike solids and liquids, gases are known to have both variable volume and pressure. The gas laws were formulated in the late 18th century by various scientists to develop a relationship between the volume, pressure, temperature, and the number of moles of a gas.1 This has allowed scientists today to manipulate these variables in controlled lab settings, to utilize these laws in new innovations such as ventilation systems, and to explain observed biological phenomenon like breathing. Boyle’s Law, the first of these gas laws, was published in 1662, and developed an inverse relationship between pressure and volume, provided that the temperature and the number of moles of gas remained constant.1 It is illustrated by the equation PV = k1, where…

• ## The Ideal Gas Law, Boyle's Law

Gases, solids, and liquids are the three states that a substance can exist as. A gas does not maintain shape and volume. Gases expand to fit and fill the container. While a liquid maintains volume, but not shape and fits the shape of the container it is placed in. Solids can maintain both volume and shape. When a gas exerts force on the walls of a container, this is known as its pressure. Pressure varies based on temperature and volume. Many gas laws were used within this experiment, such as…

• ## Boyle's Law Lab Report

Purpose The purpose of this experiment is to confirm the functional relationship of Boyle’s law through the use of a manometer. The two parts of this experiment will determine the number of moles of oxygen and the second part will determine the number of moles of nitrogen, that will lead to determine the value of R by measuring P, V, and T. Theory/Principles A physical law such as Boyle’s law states that P, the exerted fixed mass of gas at a constant temperature and V, the volume have a…

• ## Experiment Of The Marcet Boiler And Boyle's Law

Abstract This lab report focuses on the two experiments on pressure systems conducted, the Marcet boiler and Boyle’s law. The aim of this lab is to investigate in pressure-temperature relationship, Boyle’s law, as well as steam quality. The results of this experiment support both relationship, as well as successfully providing a value for steam quality. For the Marcet boiler experiment, it was found that the higher the system pressure, the higher the saturated temperature. For the Boyle’s law…
