our textbook gives several definitions and formulas for Boyle’s law for gases. Write, in your own words, what this law really tells us about gases. Now write two mathematical express ions that describe Boyle’s law. Do these two expressions tell us different things, or are they different representations of the same phenomena? Sketch the general shape of a graph of pressure versus volume for an ideal gas.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The meaning of Boyle’s law is to be stated. The two mathematical expressions that describe Boyle’s law are to be written and the answer to the statement that these two expressions tell us different things or are they different representations of the same phenomena is to be stated. The general shape of a graph of pressure versus volume for an ideal gas is to be sketched.

Concept Introduction:

Boyle’s law states that if the temperature and the moles of gas remain constant, then the pressure exerted by the gas is inversely proportional to the volume occupied by the gas in that space.

The mathematical statement of Boyle’s law is,

Pα1V

Or

PV=constant.

Explanation

Boyle’s law states that if the temperature and the moles of gas remain constant, then the pressure exerted by the gas is inversely proportional to the volume occupied by the gas in that space. This can be best understood by an example that when the gas inside a container having piston. If the piston is pulled down, the volume of the gas decreases but the pressure of the gas inside the container increases.

The mathematical statement of Boyle’s law is,

Pα1V
