Product Description
Introduction to Gas Laws Guided Inquiry Lesson (Free) AND Gas Laws Guided Inquiry Lesson
This is a student-centered, active learning lesson without lecture or notetaking!

Texas Chemistry Standards (TEKS)
C.9.A: The student is expected to describe and calculate the relations between volume, pressure, number of moles, and temperature for an ideal gas as described by Boyle's Law, Charles's Law, Avogadro's Law, Dalton's Law of Partial Pressures, and the Ideal Gas Law.
C.9.C: The student is expected to describe the postulates of kinetic molecular theory.

*****************************************************************************

Lesson Summary:
This guided inquiry lesson enables students to construct their own understanding of kinetic molecular theory, common symbols/units, and how to convert Celsius temperature values to Kelvin. Students are able to actively learn the material without lecture or note taking.

Part 1: Kinetic Molecular Theory
• Students use illustrations to help understand four postulates of kinetic molecular theory.

Part 2: Gas Law Units
• Students play a game of “Memory” in order to learn common gas law symbols and units.

Part 3: Converting °C to K
• Students practice converting temperature values in °C to K.

Student Study Sheet
Students are provided with a student study sheet summarizing all of the important concepts and vocabulary in this lesson.

Gas Laws Lesson

Lesson Summary:
This guided inquiry lesson enables students to construct their own understanding of the relationship between gas variables, by investigating common gas laws. Students are able to actively learn the material without lecture or note taking.

Part 1: Dalton’s Law of Partial Pressures
• Students use an illustration to determine the nature of Dalton’s Law of Partial Pressures.
• Students use Dalton’s Law of Partial Pressures to determine total and partial pressures in a mixture of gases.

Part 2: Boyle’s Law
• Students study an illustration of a Boyle’s Law experiment and record data from the experiment in a table.
• Students determine the relationship between the pressure and volume of a gas by graphing the data.
• Students practice rearranging the Boyle’s Law formula to isolate the unknown variable.
• Students practice calculating the unknown variables in Boyle’s Law problems.

Part 3: Charles’s Law
• Students study an illustration of a Charles’s Law experiment and record data from the experiment in a table.
• Students determine the relationship between the temperature and volume of a gas by graphing the data.
• Students practice rearranging the Charles’s Law formula to isolate the unknown variable.
• Students practice calculating the unknown variables in Charles’s Law problems.

• Students study an illustration of an Avogadro’s Law experiment and record data from the experiment in a table.
• Students determine the relationship between the moles and volume of a gas by graphing the data.
• Students practice rearranging the Avogadro’s Law formula to isolate the unknown variable.
• Students practice calculating the unknown variables in Avogadro’s Law problems.

Part 5: The Ideal Gas Law
• Students identify the units in the Gas Law Constant
• Students practice rearranging the Ideal Gas Law to isolate the unknown variable.
• Students practice calculating the unknown variables in Ideal Gas Law problems.

• Students practice solving gas law problems by working through a set of task cards.

Student Study Sheets
