Boyle's Law

    Hi, I have a question to ask...

    How would the presence of air bubbles or water in mercury affect the results in a "J-tube" experiment?
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Hi sinicky! Welcome to PF! :smile:

    Hint: what things does a "J-tube" experiment measure?

    Which of those things would be affected by air bubbles? :smile:
