Classroom Resources: Gases
1 – 12 of 12 Classroom Resources
Gas Laws, Pressure, History, Volume | Middle School, High School
In this activity, students will watch a video and answer questions about Robert Boyle. They will learn about his impact in chemistry, including Boyle’s Law which describes the relationship between pressure and volume of a gas.
Temperature, Gas Laws, Pressure, Kinetic Molecular Theory, Volume | Middle School, High School
In this animation, students will visualize how volume, temperature, and quality of a gas are related. This is done qualitatively and quantitatively. **This video has no audio**
Density, Molecular Motion, Kinetic Molecular Theory, Entropy, Intermolecular Forces, Volume | High School
In this activity, students use blocks to model different states of matter and the Kinetic Molecular Theory to understand the concept of entropy. This is a concept mandated by SAT level or AP level high school chemistry class.
Temperature, Heat, Exothermic & Endothermic, Law of Conservation of Energy | High School
In this activity, students observe industrial-strength snap sticks and chemical cold packs and discuss processes of endothermic and exothermic reactions.
Temperature, Gas Laws, Pressure, Kinetic Molecular Theory, Ideal Gas, Volume | High School
In this activity, students use an online program to investigate gas laws.
Gas Laws, Rate of Effusion | High School
In this activity, students will examine gas laws by carrying out several computer simulations.
Density, Temperature, Gas Laws, Density, Pressure, Kinetic Molecular Theory, Ideal Gas, Scientific Method, Volume, Experimental Design | High School, Middle School
In this activity, students use their knowledge of Charles’ law to build a hot air balloon and evaluate its design.
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.
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, 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.
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.
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.
