The following graphs represent the effect of pressure on the volume of a gas, or Boyle's Law. As the pressure increases, the volume decreases, and so on. This shows that Boyle's Law is an inverse variation. For reference, the exact formula for Boyle's Law is P1 *V1= P2 *V2. The two "P"'s stand for the pressure upon an object, and the two "V"'s stand for the volume of the object. Boyle's Law directly related to the concept of our experiment, for we tested the effect of pressure on a bursting lung and the point at which it bursts.

These graphs were taken from Ben and Dylan's DEEP project. The web adress for this site is http://www.stmatthewsschool.com/deep/deep2001/06/bckgrnd.html
