# The emptied the beaker. Next, I added a thermometer.

The
purpose of this lab was to see the relationship of temperature and volume.
During this experiment I proved Charles’s law to be right.  Charles’ law states that temperature and
volume of a gas are proportional to each other, so when
the absolute temperature increase, the volume increases. And when the absolute
temperature decreases so does the volume.

My
calculates values were a little off than my experiment values. However, you can
prove Charles’s law to be right no matter if you used my calculated results or
my experimental results. In this experiment whenever my volume increase, so did
the temperature. And when the volume decreased, the temperature decreased as
well.

So
for trial A, I used (V1 and T1) 20/293.15 and got 68 as
my answer. For trial B, I used (V1 and T2) 17/253.15 and
the answer was 67.8. These are proportional to one another. I than completed
this formula for the rest of my trials and discovered that the near equality in
numbers can be attributed to Charles’s Law. Charles’s law states when the absolute
temperature increase, the volume increases. And when the absolute temperature
decreases so does the volume.

In
the experiment the temperature and the volume worked together. To prove that
Charles law is correct I used the formula below.

Procedure

This
lab is designed to apply the Charles’s law by experimenting what happens when
distill water is mixed with room temperature water or ice water.  I observed whether volume is lower than the temperature,
higher than the temperature or if the volume is proportional to the
temperature. I observed that throughout the experiment that the volume stayed
proportional to the temperature.
