Boyle's Law Honors Chemistry

background [prelab assignment (15 points) due at the beginning of the lab; put a copy in your lab NB]

*  describe / rationalize the use of graphical analysis to determine the # moles of gas in the system & volume of the tubing. [hint: use the ideal gas equation (which incorporates Boyle's law) and the relationship between the volume of the system, volume of the tubing, and the volume of the syringe]

*  sketch a data table for your experimental measurements (i.e. review the purpose & content of your lab report)

*  describe the syntax / protocol in using MS Excel to generate a graph and to transform pressure to reciprocal pressure. as appropriate, include sketches / screen shots to clarify your response
