Boyle’s Law Applications

1. Many gases are stored under high pressure. This way they would occupy a smaller volume.

2. A practical application illustrating Boyles Law would be the action of a syringe. When we draw fluids into a syringe, we increase the volume inside the syringe, this correspondingly decreases the pressure on the inside where the pressure on the outside of the syringe is greater and forces fluid into the syringe. If we reverse the acting and push the plunger in on the syringe we are decreasing the volume on the inside which will increase the pressure inside making the pressure greater than on the outside and fluids are forced out.
