The short side was sealed at the top. The tall, skinny side was open. Boyle poured liquid mercury into his tube until it covered the bottom of the “U” and rose just a little in both sides. A large pocket of air was trapped above this mercury in the short fat side. A piston, Boyle explained, was any devise that compressed air. Since his used mercury to compress air, there would be no friction to affect the results—as had been true in the French experiment. Boyle recorded the glass piston’s weight and etched a line in the glass where mercury met the trapped air pocket.
