Investigating Boyle’s Law

1. What does Boyle’s Law state?
Boyle's law states that the absolute pressure and volume of a given mass of confined gas are inversely proportional, if the temperature remains unchanged within a closed system.

2. An outline of what this project is about.

In this project I will be testing to see if pressure and volume are inversely proportional to one another. I will use Boyle’s apparatus and a pump to test this. When the pump is pumped it will raise the pressure in the tube. The oil level will then rise therefore decreasing the volume of air in the tube. Results will be taken and if the products of the pressures and the volumes are constant then we can conclude that pressure and volume are inversely proportional.

3. Title
Investigating the relationship between pressure and volume.

4. Investigative question
Will the increase in pressure decrease the volume of air in the apparatus?

5. Hypothesis
If the amount of pressure in the apparatus is...
