Abstract Title: Adiabatic Compression of Gases
Abstract: This workshop will demonstrate the use of the adiabatic gas law apparatus to verify various gas law relationships. Pressure-volume plots illustrating the ideal gas law, Boyle's law and the adiabatic gas law will be examined and the ratio of specific heat at constant pressure to constant volume (gamma) will be extracted. Pressure-volume plots of a complete cycle will be analyzed as well.
