Technology and the Forgotten Gas Law: Pressure versus Temperature—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity

firewatch

Together the work of Avogadro, Boyle and Charles defined the relationships among the four measurable gas properties: pressure, volume, temperature and moles of gas. Among these contributions, the experiments by Amontons describing the effect of temperature on the pressure of a gas have largely been forgotten. With the Technology and the Forgotten Gas Law: Pressure versus Temperature—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity, use modern temperature sensor technology to rediscover the forgotten gas law and the relationship between pressure and temperature.
