Gas Laws, Volume, Temperature, Pressure  Middle School, High School
Activity: Animation Activity: Gases Mark as Favorite (1 Favorite)
In this activity, students will view an animation that explores how properties of gases (quantity, volume, temperature, and pressure) are related. This is done qualitatively through the balloon and bell jar scenarios. Quantitative relationships, with the corresponding laws, are summarized at the end.

Kinetic Molecular Theory, Temperature, Heat, Temperature  Middle School, High School
Lab: Mega Marshmallows Mark as Favorite (41 Favorites)
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.

Lab: Greenhouse Gas Simulation Mark as Favorite (32 Favorites)
In this lab, students will create two simulations of the Earth’s atmosphere. They will compare a control model with a one that has an increased presence of carbon dioxide gas in order to analyze how this effects temperature. They will also complete research in order to learn more about the makeup of the Earth’s atmosphere.

Pressure, Gas Laws, Kinetic Molecular Theory, Temperature, Volume, Molecular Motion, Intermolecular Forces  High School, Middle School
Lab: Gas Pressure Mark as Favorite (39 Favorites)
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.

Gas Laws, Pressure, Volume, Temperature, Kinetic Molecular Theory, Graphing  High School, Middle School
Activity: Simulation Activity: Gas Laws Mark as Favorite (44 Favorites)
In this simulation, students will investigate three of the fundamental gas laws, including Boyle’s Law, Charles’ Law and GayLussac’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.
