Boyle's Law of Gases Virtual Lab

General Aim of the Boyle's Law of Gases

Verification of Boyle’s law.

Method of the Boyle's Law of Gases

J- shaped tube method

Learning Objectives of the Boyle's Law of Gases Experiment

  • Explain the relation between the pressure exerted on an ideal gas and the volume it occupies at constant temperature.

  • Set Up an experiment to study the pressure-volume relation for an ideal gas.

Theory of Boyle's Law of Gases Experiment

- Now consider the J-tube shown in Figure (1). If mercury is poured into this tube from its open end, a certain quantity of air is trapped in the closed tube.
       Figure 1                                Figure 2
- If we raise the open-end tube. the pressure on the trapped air increases by the amount  made by the excess mercury in the open tube.

- Now if we plot a graphical relation between the 1/Vf on the vertical axis vs pf on the horizontal axis, we should get a straight line as that shown in Figure (2). Hence, Boyle’s law is verified.

Boyle's Law of Gases Experiment Principle of Work

In Boyle's law of gases experiment you will study the change in volume occupied by a gas when the pressure exerted on it changes at constant temperature.
