The purpose of this experiment is to determine the relationship between pressure and volume of a confined ideal gas at constant temperature. To do this, the students will measure the volume of air trapped in a capped syringe while applying varying forces.

The large slotted masses needed include one of each of the following: 2kg, 1kg, 1/2kg. The apparatus must be suspended upside down in large test tube clamps so that a mass hanger can be hung from wire handle on platform. The syringe ears rest on top of the lower circular test tube clamp, and both clamps hold the syringe loosely. Also examine all Boyles Law syringes and adjust position of syringe in wooden base and/or neatly cut down any corks that have not already been cut so that the apparatus doesnt wobble/teeter on the protruding cork when standing on the table. Each lab bench should already have a lattice rod clamp attached to the rod.
A barometer and a thermometer are already present in each room. Make sure that the room has plenty of paper.
