## A form of Boyle’s law is PV = k (at constant T and n). Table 8-1 contains actual data from pressure−volume experiments conducted by Robert Boyle. The value of k in most experiments is 14.1 × 102 in Hg • in3. Express k in units of atm • L. In Example 8−3, k was determined for NH3 at various pressures and volumes. Give some reasons why the k values differ so dramatically between Example 8-3 and Table 8-1.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

For the given details, it should be given the reason for the different values of k between example 8-3 and table 8-1 and value of K should be expressed in unit of atm. L.

Concept introduction:

Boyle’s law can be defined as,

A gas kept in the particular container at constant temperature.  If the container of gas is compressed, the gaseous particle is compressed and the volume of container is decreased.. That is the volume of container is inversely proportional to the pressure of gas. As increasing the pressure of a particular gas the volume of gas will reduce. This indirect relationship between the pressure and volume of gas is termed as Boyles’s law.

Mathematically this law can be written as,

P V

PV=k

Where P is pressure and k is proportionality constant.

### Explanation of Solution

Explanation

Value of K can be expressed in the unit of atm. L.as follows;

14.1×102inHg.in3×2.54cmin×10mm1cm×1atm760mm×(2
