Chapter 11: Gases

Properties of Gas

Gas Properties – interactive activity in which you control the pressure, volume, and temperature of an enclosed system to see the effects of each on the gas within.

(Main Idea: Gas pressure, temperature, and volume are interrelated.)

Gas Laws

Gas Laws – properties of gases and the gas laws that describe the relationships between volume, temperature, pressure, and the amount of gas.

(Main Idea: Gas pressure, temperature, and volume are interrelated.)

Boyle’s Law – video discussing Boyle’s law, which states that the volume of a given amount of gas at a constant temperature varies inversely with pressure.

(Main Idea: Gas volume and pressure are indirectly proportional.)

Rock Me Avogadro – original song and video covering the properties of gases and the gas laws.

(Main Idea: Equal volumes of gases under the same conditions contain equal numbers of molecules.)

Diffusion and Effusion

Graham’s Laws of Diffusion and Effusion – tutorial on the laws of diffusion and effusion.

(Main Idea: The rates of effusion and diffusion for gases depend on the velocities of their molecules.)
