Can anyone give me any info or a website for Paul Valliers place in (i think) Plainville ? If I'm not mistaken I THINK it's Acres Wild Farm? Anyway, any info would be greatly appreciated!

As Lisa Cook pointed out, PV=nRT is one of the laws of Physics, called Boyle's Law. It has to do with behaviour's of gases (The relationship of Pressure vs Volume vs Temperature).

P= pressure
V= volume
n & R= The constant "k"
T= Temperature

Therefore: It can also be written PV = kT where k is a constant.

So that means that kT is PV's alter ego. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

ah! finally, Chemistry is really useful!

PV=nRT is the ideal gas law, which is derived from neither Charles nor Boyle...that would be the COMBINED gas law [(P1xV1)/T1=(P2xV2)/T2]. So therefore...we have Pressure x Volume= (number of moles of gas)(the ideal gas constant, R, which is equal 8.31x10 to the something...I'm not that good lol)(temperature of gas)

as I recall...Avogadro's number (which would be 6.02x10^23) has nothing to do with the ideal gas law. That has to do with the number of particles in a liter of a gas at constant volume.

I really think my chemistry teacher should be proud I remember this stuff! lol I loved chem though so it's all good

DizzyLissy, Paul Valliere is a rather hot topic on this BB, much like a woman (I hesitate to say lady....) named Colin, tack nosebands, standing martingales, VaTrainer, Barney and by extension McLain Ward, the GOV v. ISR/OldNA, etc. etc.

As a means of diffusing topics like these, many of us divert them after the initial question has been answered. Baby quiches, peeps, chocolate, and baby carrots are popular diversions. This one just took a different tack.

No, Paul Valliere does not pass gas in the show ring... he is not allowed in the show ring or even on the grounds at any USAEq-affiliated competition.

ah! finally, Chemistry is really useful!

PV=nRT is the ideal gas law, which is derived from neither Charles nor Boyle...that would be the COMBINED gas law [(P1xV1)/T1=(P2xV2)/T2]. So therefore...we have Pressure x Volume= (number of moles of gas)(the ideal gas constant, R, which is equal 8.31x10 to the something...I'm not that good lol)(temperature of gas)

as I recall...Avogadro's number (which would be 6.02x10^23) has nothing to do with the ideal gas law. That has to do with the number of particles in a liter of a gas at constant volume.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

Sorry, but the Ideal Gas Law IS the combination of Boyles law, Charles Law, and Avogadro's hypothesis. I didn't think I was wrong....and as confirmation, check out the site that Medevalist so cleverly found...it goes into WAY more detail than I even intend to (or could at this point http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif -- it's been waaaay too many years since I had to really use a lot of this.)

That said, I'm with Kachoo on this one... I knew there was a reason I didn't take a single math class in college and dropped chemistry after a truly unenjoyable semester. LOL.

Did anyone else call the ideal gas law the pervert law or was that something exclusive to my high school?

Grog - we were separated at birth! I too dropped Chemistry after one Semester From Hell. It was awful - we had a young prof who spent the entire time trying to make chemistry "cool," which, sorry, is just not possible. It may be interesting to some people. Hell, it may actually be fun and satisfying. It will NEVER, however, be cool. His name was Dr. Cramb, but he forced us to call him "D.C." He talked about his hobby (playing the drums) more than the material and had long, nature-boy hair. The final straw for me came the day the engineers thought they'd be cute and run down the hallway with a makeshift bell-invention that the entire building mistook as a fire alarm. Thus, they didn't detract from the rest of the city's fire protection by causing an actual fire-truck to come out but did get the entire science A block evacuated. That is, except for our class. That's right, while everyone else was fleeing for their lives, "D.C." looked up at us thoughtfully and said, "No, no...let's finish this problem set first." My pseudo-near-death-experience resulted in me re-evaluating potential careers, and I was out of there that afternoon and signing up for psych. I analyze everyone so much already that they might as well pay me for it.

Moles are both chemistry (in the Avagadro's number sense) and biology (in the small furry animal sense). As if that clears anything up… right. Just think of moles as a counting unit for molecules and atoms, sort of like a dozen is a counting unit for Krispy Kremes.

laurencsi03 - there is Avagadro's number and Avagadro's law. Avagadro's law, which you were probably thinking of, relates moles (amount) of gas to the volume that they take up. You should get some credit for remembering a fair amount of chem.

However, I will say kudos to my college for not forcing us non-science-majors to take the same chemistry class as the bazillion pre-med people, and instead offering the fabulous "Chemistry for Non-Majors" in which your lab projects consisted of making banana flavoring, nylon, and rubber (and oh yes, you got extra credit if you yielded enough rubber to make a ball that bounced LOL!) . . . seriously . . . . http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I actually learned more practical chemistry in one semester of Mineralogy than I did in the required two semesters of so-called Real Chemistry for my BS degree. The scary thing is they missed that Chem was a requisite for mineralogy because it is so heavily based in chemistry; I hadn't taken chem yet...and I got an A in Mineralogy. I got C's in both sem's of Chemistry...and both sem's of physics...and both sems of trig-based Calculus ~~~oops, hadn't taken a trig class either, but I passed the math test well enough to get in. Go figure. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif
