>Virtual lab: Boyles' law lab [30 points]

 

The below figure shows the experimental setup.

This virtual laboratory activity is based on the handout to the corresponding in-person Boyles' law lab to determine the number of moles of gas in the system and the volume of the tubing.

1. Using the Excel simulation, determine the volume of the tubing and the number of moles of gas in the system. hint: use the ideal gas law,

P V = n R T

where V = Vsyringe + Vtubing [10 points]

2. View the video (~ 1:30 duration) showing the experimental setup / protocol and analyze their data to find the number of moles of gas in the system and the volume of the tubing, where you assume that the temperature is 21 ° C. [10 points]

3. Using the virtual lab, find the relationship (expressed in the form of a graph and describe it using mathematical terms) at 350 K, where you include a screen shot of the results of this simulation. Also, describe the qualitative behavior of the simulated molecules in the animation of the system as a function of the volume (and pressure) in the system.  Do Boyle's,  Charles' , and Gay Lussac' law simulations.    [10 points]
