1.The sphere used was filled with air, which is not an ideal gas. Does this play a role in increasing percent error? Why or why not?
I think it would have an effect since air is not uniform throughout, but im not sure and not sure of why.
2. The sphere is made of stainless Steel. Is this a good choice? If so why? If not, why not and what would be a good alternative? Explain why it would be better.
I’m pretty sure that this has to do with specific heats. Stainless steel’s is 490 J/kg. Im not sure if you would prefer a metal with a higher (such as Aluminum) or lower(Lead) specific heat in this experiment.
