 ===== 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.
