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 gauge and absolute pressure scales, and finally calibrate the pressure transducer.
After completing this lab, students will be able to:
Establish calibration reference points based on Boyle's law.
Conduct a 5-point sequential calibration of a pressure transducer.
Compare upscale and downscale calibration curves.
Measure pressure using both gauge and absolute scales.
