Homework Help: Pressure Law - Can someone help me plan an experiment?

  1. Apr 21, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I need to investigate and model how changing temperature in a car tyre will affect the pressure. To do this, I have to use a syringe, along with any other laboratory equipment.

    I'm also given the cross sectional area and volume of the syringe.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Can anyone please guide me on how I might do this? I've thought about it, and putting masses on the plunger and what not, but I'm guessing I want the volume of the syringe to stay constant. And I guess I'd put it in a water bath, but then I'm not sure how I'd measure pressure?

    It shouldn't be too complicated as it is only A-level Physics in the UK.

    Thank you kind sirs.
