Summary of Concepts:
Through this experiment we will be investigating the differences between the gas laws. We will investigate the relationships between pressure, volume, and temperature. By the end of the experiment we will have data to prove the gas laws.
The Gas Laws we will be investigating are as follows:
Ideal Gas law:
Lab Quest App
Vernier Gas Pressure Sensor
20 mL Gas Syringe
125 mL Erlenmeyer Flask
Three 600 mL Beakers
Rubber Stopper assembly with two way valves
Pressure Vs Volume
Temperature Vs Volume
Temperature Vs Pressure
PART 1: Pressure and Volume
1. Position the piston of a plastic 20 mL syringe at 10 mL. Attach the syringe to the valve of the Gas Pressure Sensor, as shown in Figure 1. A gentle half turn should connect the syringe to the sensor securely. Note: Read the volume at the front edge of the inside black ring on the piston of the syringe, as indicated by the arrow in Figure 1.
2. Connect the Gas Pressure Sensor to LabQuest and choose New from the File menu.
3. Set up the data-collection mode.
a. Change the data-collection mode to Events with Entry.
b. Enter Name (Volume) and Units (mL). Select OK.
4. Start data collection.
a. When the pressure reading has
