Serves to demonstrate Boyle's Law. Shows what happens when gases are subjected to increased pressure. The plastic syringe, with solid wood base and platen, is constructed so that the calibrations denoting interior volume read right side up. As masses of bricks, books, or other heavy objects are increased, the gas in the syringe is compressed to smaller and smaller volume. The kit includes: 1 Syringe Cylinder w/ Cap, 1 Syringe Piston, 1 Base, 1 Platen.
