-place one book on the pipet.
-measure the distance from the end of the pipet to the edge of the food-colored water.
-record this as the volume at one “book” of pressure.
-continue to test this system with more
pressure until you are unable.
1. On a separate sheet graph the pressure vs. the volume of this system.
2. Why didn’t you graph the pressure with
3. Is there any pressure on the outside
of the pipet when there were no books?
