Physico-Mechanical, touching the Spring of the Air, and its Effects. Published two years after the first edition, it reprints the original text on pneumatics, and adds as an appendix two new tracts, in the first of which Boyle announces his law of gases, stating that the volume occupied by a gas (such as air) in a confined space is reciprocal.

In Boyle published the first edition of New experiments physico-mechanicall, touching the spring of the air, and its effects which described experiments performed by Boyle and his assistant, Robert Hooke, to reduce air pressure. The book proved controversial as it attacked the science of the day.

In his book, New Experiments Physico-Mechanicall, Touching the Spring of the Air, and its Effects, (Made, for the Most Part, in a New Pneumatical Engine), he described 43 separate experiments, some of which were carried out with Robert Hooke, investigating the effect of reducing the air pressure within the bell jar on the objects contained within.

Despite the operational and maintenance obstacles, construction of the pump enabled Boyle to conduct a great many experiments on the properties of air, which he later detailed in his New Experiments Physico-Mechanicall, Touching the Spring of the Air, and its Effects, (Made, for the Most Part, in a New Pneumatical Engine).

In the book, he. Although Boyle’s first scientific interest was chemistry, his first published scientific book, the one that established his fame, was on pneumatics: New Experiments Physico-Mechanicall, Touching the Spring of the Air and its Effects ().

Three years earlier he had learned of Guericke’s invention of an air pump and, immediately perceiving. This was impossible with the metal hemispheres used by von Guericke. Boyle's experiments were initially described in his influential book New Experiments Physico-Mechanicall, Touching the Spring of the Air and its Effects.

The height difference of the mercury is effectively a measure of the pressure of the trapped air. Boyle, through the experiment and the data, discovered a relationship between the volume and the pressure of air.

Inhe published his New Experiments Physico-Mechanical, Touching the Spring of the Air, and its Effects Made, for the most part, in a New Pneumatical Engine. His response to critics of this work included the first mention of the law that the volume of a gas varies inversely to the pressure of the gas, what many physicists call today.

With the help of their machine, Boyle and Hooke conducted a series of experiments on the properties of air. InBoyle published his first scientific work, New Experiments Physico-Mechanicall, Touching the Spring of the Air and Its Effects.

A n account of the work he did with this instrument was published in under the title New Experiments Physico-Mechanical touching the spring of air and its effects.

Among the critics of the views put forward in this book was a Jesuit, Franciscus Linus (–), and it was while answering his objections that Boyle enunciated the law.
