Boyle's Law

Storyboard Text

  • Hello, attention passengers. Just to remind you that it is advisable to eat something sweet at this time.
  • Excuse me but... why do we have to eatsomething sweet?
  • Oh, I will explain you right now. It's because of Boyle's Law.
  • Boyle’s Law states that the absolute pressure and volume of a given mass of confined gas are inversely proportional, provided the temperature remains unchanged within a closed system. In other words, it means that if the pressure increases, the volume decreases and vice versa.
  • When the plane takes off or lands, there is an increase in altitude. This causes the air pressure to become low and high, and then this causes a variation on the outside and inside of the ears.
  • But chewing on something sweet helps the air in your ears escape through your throat.
  • Thank you for the information!
  • 0mg! After so many years I finally understand the purpose.
