What is a practical application of

Boyle's law?
A:
QUICK ANSWER
One practical application of Boyle's law is drawing fluid into a syringe. Pulling back on
the plunger increases the interior volume of the syringe and reduces its pressure. The
fluid outside the syringe is sucked into the barrel until the interior and exterior pressure
are balanced.

What is an application of Charles'
Law?
A:
QUICK ANSWER

An application of Charles' Law is a floating hot air balloon. A torch heats the air inside
the balloon causing the air particles to move faster and disperse, making the air in the
balloon less dense than the surrounding air so that the balloon floats.

What is the practical application of Charles's law?

FULL ANSWER

Charles' Law explains the relationship between the volume and temperature of a gas. It
states that heating a gas while holding its pressure constant results in an increase in the

volume of the gas. Heating the air increases the speed of its gas particles in air. Similarly. As gunpowder burns. The fuel used heats the air inside the balloon. it creates superheated gas.

FULL ANSWER . the balloon floats. the volume of the gas decreases when the temperature decreases. which forces the bullet out of the gun barrel following Gay-Lussac's Law. This causes the gas inside the balloon to take up more space. What is an example of Gay- Lussac's Law in everyday life? A: QUICK ANSWER An example of Gay-Lussac's Law in everyday life is the shooting of a gun. the hot air in the balloon rises because of its decreased density. according to kinetic molecular theory as described by the University of California. A hot air balloon is an application of Charles' Law. In short. The speed of movement of the gas particles as well as their dispersal causes the air inside the balloon to become less dense than the air surrounding it. As a result. so they move faster and spread out. Other everyday life examples can be found in things that use gas and pressure in order to function.

All gases have different properties that can be observed via the senses. Charles did the work and then Gay-Lussac verified the work. the volume was equal to the constant times the temperature. then the gas will cause the container to burst. Charles and Gay-Lussac were two French scientists who first discovered. The temperature and volume of a gas are always found at constant numbers of both moles and pressure. . Avogadro's Law is used in many careers and in many fields of work. In zoos. Originally. These properties include temperature. the relationship between temperature and volume in gases. and then investigated. This formula is known as V (volume) = Constant (C) multiplied by T (temperature). If they fill to much of the gas into the container. and it is these properties that determine the gas' state. Avogadro's Law can also be shown with those that work with propane or natural gas. They both found that as pressure held constant in the gas. It is obvious when he or she made a mistake when one balloon is much larger in size (volume) than another balloon. volume and the pressure contained within the gas. Scientists have discovered that all of these properties within a gas are related to one another. you may spot a balloon sales man/woman. This rule is now called the Charles and Gay-Lussac Law to honor the scientists. mass. This happens if there is a increasing mass but the the volume stays the same. every once in a while. He or she must make sure to distribute the amount of helium (mass) evenly in each balloon.
