Abstract

The study of gaseous state of matter is included in the programs of Freshman Chemistry and in every textbook at this level. Yet, only few laboratory manuals include an experiment describing the apparatus and procedure for studying Boyle's Law. Experiments describing Charles'-Gay Lussac's Law and Combined Gas Laws usually are not included in laboratory manuals, owing to the fact that manufacturers of scientific apparatus do not offer any such apparatus. In order to eliminate this gap in study of gaseous state, in the laboratory at Upper Iowa College an apparatus is used which enables one to study the relationship of volume, pressure, and temperature in gaseous state and gives the students an opportunity to interpolate the absolute zero. The following is a description of this apparatus and procedures for studying gas laws.
