Calculating a value for Absolute Zero

By Thursday, April 8, 2010 , , , , 0

This a nice, simple IA lab that is worth trying out. In a nutshell,

the basic procedure is as follows:

  • Fill a gas syringe with a single gas (Oxygen or Helium are good)


  • Cool the gas (at least five times), measuring the volume each time.
  • Plot a graph of temperature (x-axis) vs volume (y -axis) and extrapolate

This is just the basic outline for the method – if you need more details let me know.

Not sure I would use it for Design or DCP but it would be good for CEv.
