Objective
The objective of this lab experiment is to measure the material in the gas phase and to see how the ideal gas experiment could apply to the physical. In this the material we used was, a sip-lock plastic bag, a large plastic beaker, thermometry, dry ice, water, and butane lighter.
Introduction
In this lab, the experiment focused on the relationship between the temperature and pressure of an ideal gas that was dry ice inside the closed container. Therefore, the volume remains constant because the ideal gas was in a closed container.
Experiment Procedure
First, all the materials were collected. After collecting all the materials was prepared, we started measuring the mass of the beaker and plastic
