I3-41. Boyle's Law - Projection
To demonstrate Boyle's law.
Commercial Boyle's Law apparatus on overhead projector.
Plot a graph of P vs V to show that the curve is a hyperbola.
Connect the piston tube to the pressure gauge. Read off several values of pressure
and volume for different piston positions to show that PV=constant.
