Graphing Practice Problem #4
The volume of a gas decreases as the temperature of the gas decreases. A sample of gas was collected at 100 degrees Celsius and then cooled. The changes in the volume of the sample are shown below.
|T ( oC )||V ( ml )|
- Graph the data.
- Construct another graph that will allow you to extrapolate (extend the graph beyond measured data) the graph to reach a gas volume of 0 ml. The temperature at which the volume of the gas reaches zero is the theoretical temperature of Absolute Zero. From this graph, what is the Celsius Temperature for Absolute Zero?
