Transcript of Robert Boyle's Famous Experiment

By Erica Winston Robert Boyle's Famous Experiment Bell in a Bell Jar Robert Boyle did many things that may have improved the technology of the 17th century, and they may have been just for the sake of inventing. However, Boyle created the famous "Bell in a Bell Jar" experiment and it proved something that 21st century scientists likely reference in their everyday work, depending on which scientific field they study. The Experiment The experiment was: a perpetually-struck bell was placed underneath a bell jar. All of the air was sucked out. No sound was made. When air was allowed into the jar, the bell produced a ringing; however, the moment the last of the air was sucked out again, the sound stopped. Experiment Results What did Boyle's experiment prove? It proved that sound cannot travel through a vacuum. Therefore, in order for sound waves to travel, they need a medium.
