There is an inverse relationship between pressure on a gas and volume of a gas.
Volume of Gas
Dependent Variable Boyle's
Independent Variable Boyle's
Boyle Graph Title
The relationship between pressure on a gas and volume of a gas when pressure is increasing.
Gas volume increases as temperature increases.
Gas Volume (balloon circumference)
Dependent Variable Charles'
Temperature of the Gas
Independent Variable - Charles'
What Charles' graph should have been (direction and such)
Charles Graph Title
The increase of gas volume measured by the circumference of a balloon depending on the increase of the temperature.
-273 Degrees Celcius, 0 Degrees Kelvin
Same increments as Celcius, but beginning as -273 degrees Celcius
What Charles' graph was (The balloon eventually can't expand anymore, so the volume of the gas can only get so big.)
What Boyle's Graph looked like (direction and such)
compressed air becomes ______ (not water!)
Increase in size of bubbles as they rise to the surface
We've all seen movies showing scuba divers breathing under water and bubbles growing as they rise to the surface. This is a good example of Boyle's Law in nature. We know that the deeper we go in the sea, more the pressure. Therefore as the bubbles rise to the surface the pressure decreases and accordingly the volume increases. (BOYLE RLA)
