The state of a gas is determined by temperature, pressure and amount of substance. For the limiting case of ideal gases, these state variables are linked via the general equation of state. For a change of state under isochoric conditions this equation becomes Amontons' law. In this experiment it is investigated whether Amontons' law is valid for a constant amount of gas (air).


  • Unique system: All gas laws can be measured with the same setup
  • Very compact setup, can be stored in the shelf and is always ready to use
  • Very demonstrative: Volume is read directly at the gas syringe, temperature and pressure are measured with sensors in real-time
  • Heating system is integrated in experiment setup
  • Direct and versatile measurement with Cobra4 Mobile-Link: Measurement values visible on display (lab experiment/ student experiment), or connect it with a computer via USB-cable (direct measurement of a diagram, in combination with a projector as teacher demonstration), or add the Cobra4 Display-Connect module to connect it wirelessly to a digital large scale display


  • For a constant amount of gas (air) investigate the correlation of
  1. Volume and pressure at constant temperature (Boyle and Mariotte's law)
  2. Volume and temperature at constant pressure (Gay-Lussac's law)
  3. Pressue and temperature at constant volume (Charles' (Amontons' law))
  • From the relationships obtained calculate the universal gas constant as well as the coefficient of thermal expansion, the coefficient of thermal tension, and the coefficient of cubic compressibility.
