• Partial Pressure, Gas Laws, Ideal Gas, Pressure, Molar Mass, Measurements, Error Analysis | High School

Access is an AACT member benefit. Lab: Molar Mass of Butane

In this lab, students will experimentally determine the molar mass of butane using Dalton’s law and the ideal gas law. They will also calculate the percent error and explain possible sources of error.

• Percent Composition, Ideal Gas | High School

Access is an AACT member benefit. Lesson Plan: Investigating Popcorn with the Ideal Gas Law

In this lab, students will collect data to determine the pressure inside a popcorn kernel when it pops using the Ideal Gas Law. They will also calculate the percentage of water present in the average popcorn kernel. This resource includes two versions of the student activity, traditional and inquiry.

• Partial Pressure, Gas Laws, Ideal Gas, Molar Mass, Pressure, Measurements, Error Analysis | High School

Access is an AACT member benefit. Lab: Determination of the Molar Mass of Butane

In this lab, students will experimentally determine the molar mass of a gas, specifically butane (C4H10), by collection over water. This experiment is an inquiry based experiment for 2nd year chemistry or AP chemistry students who have previously collected an insoluble gas.

• Gas Laws, Ideal Gas, Kinetic Molecular Theory, Stoichiometry, Partial Pressure | High School

Access is an AACT member benefit. Lab: Determination of the Ideal Gas Law Constant

In this lab, students will collect a gas sample over water and use multiple scientific principles including stoichiometry and gas laws to experimentally determine the Ideal Gas Law Constant (R).

• Mole Concept, Measurements, History, Ideal Gas, Gas Laws | High School

Access is an AACT member benefit. Video: Amedeo Avogadro Video

This video tells the story of Amedeo Avogadro, the scientist given credit for the mole concept, but who discovered other things in chemistry too.

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

Access is an AACT member benefit. Activity: Understanding Gas Laws

In this activity, students use an online program to investigate gas laws.

Access is an AACT member benefit. Demonstration: Ideal Gas Law using Carbon Dioxide

In this demonstration, students observe dry ice sublime while the CO2 gas fills a balloon. They then calculate the moles and volume of CO2 produced.

• Gas Laws, Ideal Gas, Volume, Temperature, Pressure, Kinetic Molecular Theory, Density, Graphing, Density, Chemical Change, Stoichiometry, Balancing Equations, Chemical Change, Dimensional Analysis | High School

Lesson Plan: The Gas Laws Unit Plan

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.

Access is an AACT member benefit. Lab: Molar Mass of Dry Ice

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.

• Stoichiometry, Gas Laws, Ideal Gas, Pressure, Volume, Temperature, Interdisciplinary | High School

Access is an AACT member benefit. Lesson Plan: Mechanisms and Properties of Airbags

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.
