Partial Pressure, Gas Laws, Ideal Gas, Pressure, Molar Mass, Measurements, Error Analysis  High School
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
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
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
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
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
Activity: Understanding Gas Laws
In this activity, students use an online program to investigate gas laws.

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.
