 ===== Purpose ===== ===== Purpose =====
 +Can be used to illustrate how the force required to compress a gas varies with pressure. Shows how air can be used as a shock absorber, similar to a pneumatic table.
 +If not all of the syringes are pressed down at once, shows the action of pneumatic pistons.
 ===== Apparatus ===== ===== Apparatus =====
 +  * Air Compression Shock Absorber¬†
 +  * Delrin block
 ===== Setup ===== ===== Setup =====
 +The block (pictured) is set on top of the syringes. Pressing down on the syringes gets harder as the block goes further down.
