Classroom Resources: Gases
1 – 10 of 10 Classroom Resources
Gas Laws, Pressure, Volume | High School
Lab: Deriving the Gas Laws
In this lab, students will investigate the relationships of the variables related to gases. They will draw particle diagrams and derive equations to express these relationships. They will then combine these relationships to derive the combined gas law and the ideal gas law. Finally, they will use the molar volume of a gas at STP to derive the ideal gas constant, R.
Kinetic Molecular Theory, Gas Laws, Pressure, Volume | High School
Demonstration: Inflate and Shrink Wrap a Student
In this demonstration, students will observe two situations. First a student will be lifted off the desk as other students blow air into straws connected to a garbage bag in order to inflate it. Secondly, the class will observe a garbage bag shrink wrapping a student as a vacuum removes air from the bag.
Gas Laws, Pressure, Volume, History | Middle School, High School
Activity: Robert Boyle Video Questions
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.
Gas Laws, Pressure, Volume, History | Elementary School, Middle School, High School
Video: Robert Boyle Video
This video tells the story of Robert Boyle, a great chemist and discoverer of Boyle's Law, which describes the relationship between pressure and volume of a gas.
Gas Laws, Pressure, Temperature, Volume, Kinetic Molecular Theory | 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**
Pressure, Gas Laws, Kinetic Molecular Theory, Temperature, Volume, Molecular Motion, Intermolecular Forces | High 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.
Kinetic Molecular Theory, Ideal Gas, Gas Laws, Volume, Temperature, Graphing, Accuracy, Error analysis | High School
Lab: Finding Absolute Zero
In this lab, students will experimentally determine the value for absolute zero in degrees Celsius.
Gas Laws, Matter, Density, Density, Temperature, Pressure, Volume, Graphing, Observations, Measurements | High School
Lab: Pressure Bottle
In this lab, students determine the relationship between volume and pressure of a gas and its temperature and address the common misconception that air does not have mass or density.
Renewable Energy, Conservation of Mass, Chemical Change, Volume, Pressure | Middle School, High School
Lab: Power That Stinks
In this lab, students will experiment with creating and capturing biogas, and have an opportunity to look at how energy is created from waste. They will explore the differences between non-renewable and renewable energy sources.
Gas Laws, Pressure, Temperature, Volume | Elementary School, Middle School, High School
Demonstration: Make the Water Rise!
In this demonstration, students will observe the impact of temperature change on a gas through an engaging demonstration using simple household materials.
