Boyle’s Law is one of the most popular explorations that Boyle had ever found. It explained the relationship between the pressure of a gas and the volume of a gas. As pressure increase, volume decrease, and as volume increase, pressure decrease. In order to do his experience to prove the fact of his discovery, he invented an air pump machine which he used it in almost every experiences he did. Boyle’s Law had been pass on from generation to generation and still being used today for scientific and school perfect.

One of his experience with the air pump was to find out that oxygen can transfer sound. What he did was place a watch in the air pump and look for the sound of “ticking” from the watch. He put it in the air pump, and when the air did not pump out, there still a loud- sound of the ticking, but once he pump all the air out, there was no sound to be heard from the watch (58-59 Sootin).
