• Temperature, Kinetic Molecular Theory, Heat, Temperature | Middle School, High School

### Lab: Mega Marshmallows

In this lab, students will investigate the Kinetic Molecular Theory and particle motion while experimenting with a marshmallow. Students will observe how an increase in kinetic energy will cause particles to increase in motion. This concept will be extended into a discussion about additional real world thermal expansion examples.

• Temperature, Heat, Temperature | Elementary School, Middle School

### Demonstration: An Uplifting Experience

In this demonstration, students will investigate what happens to air when it is heated.

• Temperature, Pressure | Elementary School, Middle School

### Demonstration: EGGsperiment

In this demonstration, students will learn how temperature change affects air pressure, while observing an egg getting sucked into a bottle without being touched!

• Temperature, Gas Laws, Volume | Elementary School, Middle School

### Demonstration: Candle Mystery

In this demonstration, students will observe and analyze how the change in temperature of a gas can affect the volume of a gas.

• Temperature, Gas Laws, Pressure, Kinetic Molecular Theory, Volume | Middle School, High School

### Animation: Gases Animation

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**

• Temperature, Gas Laws, Pressure, Molecular Motion, Kinetic Molecular Theory, Intermolecular Forces, Volume | High School, Middle School

### Lab: Gas Pressure

In this lab, students will understand what causes pressure in a container and the variables that affect pressure (volume, temperature, number of moles) by mimicking molecular motion of gases.

• Temperature, Gas Laws, Pressure, Volume | High School, Middle School

In this demo, students will witness the relationship between temperature and volume as well as temperature and pressure.

• Temperature, Gas Laws, Pressure, Volume | High School, Middle School

### Demonstration: Crush the Can

In this demonstration, students will analyze how the change in temperature of a gas can affect the pressure and volume of the gas. Students will watch an engaging demonstration involving a heat source, water vapor and an empty soda can.

• Density, Temperature, Gas Laws, Density, Pressure, Kinetic Molecular Theory, Ideal Gas, Scientific Method, Volume, Experimental Design | High School, Middle School

### Activity: Hot Air Balloon

### Activity: Simulation Activity: Gas Laws

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.
