Gas Simulation Computer Lab
This simulation activity is to be used with the online PhET gas simulator. (website included) This inquiry based activity is perfect for introducing gas laws. Prior knowledge of gas behaviors is not needed. The activity allows students to discover and explore the relationship between pressure, temperature and volume.
The simulator requires Java so it cannot be accessed using an Apple device. Students can work independently and should be able to complete in 55 minutes. Students can also complete at home or with a partner if modifications are needed.
