Homework Help: Formula One Relating to the Combined Gas Law

  1. Nov 16, 2008 #1
    I'm doing an investigation, for my GCSE coursework, on how the combined gas law can be applied to formula one racing. For example: the tyres.

    Can anyone give me any ideas on what to put into my investigation.

    Thanks in advance.

    Estimate how hot the tires get during a race, if you also estimate their volume you can work out what pressure they reach. And what pressurethey wouldhave to be inflated to while cold to reach a certain running pressure.
