Homework Help: Physics/Boyles Law

Posted by Mike on Friday, October 12, 2007 at 1:47am.

Please confirm/tidy up my fragile understanding as follows:

Boyles Law is apparently now known by another name????

If I compressed the air in a room into a cylinder obviously everything that was in the room is now in the cylinder including the heat. As the heat out of a large space has been compressed into a small space the cylinder & contents become hot?. Please confirm.

After a period of time the cylinder & contents cool to room temperature. If the contents are released the cylinder will frost up and the air released will be very cold.

This can readily be observed when discharging Co2 Portable Fire Extinguishers.

Comments please.

Thank you

Mike
