Biological Physics/Boyle's Law
Boyle's Law states that the volume and pressure are inversely proportional. This means that as the volume of gas in a container decreases, the pressure increases. To test Boyle's Law a syringe was attached to a pressure meter and weights were added to the plunger to show the relationship between the volume and pressure inside the syringe. Below is a table of values showing the results of the experiment. In the table to work done is calculated based on the difiniton of work, W=mgΔx, and work derived from the ideal gas law, .
|Mass (kg)||W=mgΔx||Pressure (Pa)||Volume ()||Distance (m)|
