Classroom Resources: Gases
26 – 42 of 42 Classroom Resources
Temperature, Gas Laws, Density, Pressure, Volume | High School
In this lesson, students will investigate gases similar to how scientists learned about them “back in the day.” Students begin by investigating gas behavior, then they investigate gas density and use this to interpret Avogadro’s hypothesis that gases under the same conditions combine in simple whole number ratios.
Density, Temperature, Chemical Change, Gas Laws, Density, Pressure, Balancing Equations, Stoichiometry, Chemical Change, Dimensional Analysis, Kinetic Molecular Theory, Ideal Gas, Volume, Graphing | High School
The AACT high school classroom resource library and multimedia collection has everything you need to put together a unit plan for your classroom: lessons, activities, labs, projects, videos, simulations, and animations. We constructed a unit plan using AACT resources that is designed to teach the Gas Laws to your students.
Temperature, Gas Laws, Pressure, Volume, Graphing | High School
In this lab, students will investigate the relationship between the variables of temperature, volume and pressure. Students will engage in three lab station activities that each demonstrate a particular gas law. Students will interpret the results, graph data points and relate given data sets to each of the three gas laws.
Temperature, Gas Laws, Pressure, Kinetic Molecular Theory, Volume, Graphing | High School, Middle School
In this simulation, students will investigate three of the fundamental gas laws, including Boyle’s Law, Charles’ Law and Gay-Lussac’s Law. Students will have the opportunity to visually examine the effect of changing the associated variables of pressure, volume, or temperature in each situation. Also, students will analyze the gas samples at the particle level as well as manipulate quantitative data in each scenario. Finally students will interpret trends in the data by examining the graph associated with each of the gas laws. This lesson accompanies the simulation from the November 2015 issue of Chemistry Solutions.
Observations, Density, Temperature, Gas Laws, Density, Pressure, Physical Change, Identifying an Unknown, Molar Mass, Ideal Gas, Volume, Error Analysis | High School
In this lab, students will use gas laws to calculate the molar mass of dry ice and then use the information to identify the compound that makes up this substance.
Temperature, Gas Laws, Pressure, Volume | High School
In this activity, students will use models to predict behaviors of gas. They will conceptually and quantitatively solve problems, but the emphasis is put on the conceptual changes through modeling exercises.
Temperature, Gas Laws, Pressure, Volume | High School, Elementary School, Middle School
In this demonstration, students will observe how changing the temperature of a gas will affect the pressure of the gas through an engaging demonstration using a heat source, water vapor and a hard-boiled egg.
Temperature, Gas Laws, Pressure, Molecular Motion, Kinetic Molecular Theory, SI Units, Volume | High School, Middle School
In this simulation, students investigate variables of a gas. From the computer models, they can see how pressure, temperature, and volume effect gas behavior.
Temperature, Gas Laws, Kinetic Molecular Theory, Ideal Gas, Volume, Accuracy, Graphing, Error Analysis | High School
In this lab, students will experimentally determine the value for absolute zero in degrees Celsius.
Gas Laws, Balancing Equations, Stoichiometry, Mole Concept, Chemical Change, Dimensional Analysis, Volume | High School
In this lab, students make real-world connections of stoichiometry with the design of car air bags.
Gas Laws, Concentration, Molarity, Electrolysis, Stoichiometry, Mole Concept, Dimensional Analysis, Ideal Gas, Electrons | High School
In this lesson, students will learn how to follow a process of visual cues in combination with a step-by-step problem solving method for different types of stoichiometric problems. This method can be particularly beneficial for students who struggle with completing multi-step calculations.
Temperature, Gas Laws, Pressure, Interdisciplinary, Stoichiometry, Ideal Gas, Volume | High School
In this lesson students will learn about the mechanisms and properties of airbags, and examine the choice of airbag inflator from several points of view.
Gas Laws, Catalysts, Combustion, Stoichiometry, Limiting Reactant, Enthalpy, Activation Energy, Energy Diagrams, Experimental Design | High School
In this lab, students create a stoichiometric mixture of hydrogen and oxygen gases to launch a soda bottle rocket.
Separating Mixtures, Physical Properties, Temperature, Sublimation, Gas Laws, Pressure, Phase Changes, Physical Change, Review, Distillation, Boiling Point, Volume, Mixtures | High School
In this activity, students will play a game to review topics relating to physical properties of matter, including mixtures, states of matter, and gas laws. They will be prompted with questions in a PowerPoint and they will use white boards to communicate their answers.
Chemical Change, Gas Laws, Pressure, Acid & Base Theories, Indicators, Solubility Rules | Middle School
In this lesson, students will determine the pH of several liquids with litmus paper or a pH probe. Next, students will explore how pH affects the production of gas with Pop Rocks. Students will also investigate how Charles’ Law affects Pop Rocks. Finally, students will design their own experiment with Pop Rocks.
Gas Laws, Pressure, Volume | Elementary School
In this lab, students will investigate the relationship between volume and pressure of a gas, using a plastic syringe and a marshmallow.
Temperature, Gas Laws, Pressure, Volume | Elementary School, Middle School, High School
In this demonstration, students will observe the impact of temperature change on a gas through an engaging demonstration using simple household materials.
