Pressure

This lab explores pressure measurement using a capacitive pressure transducer. Students begin by learning the fundamentals of pressure measurement and calibration including concepts like Boyle's Law. They will then measure changes in pressure using both gage and absolute pressure scales, and finally calibrate the pressure transducer.
