Proof: Volume Ratios in a Carnot Cycle
Sal goes back to a look at the Adiabatic process in this chemistry video. He sets up a Carnot Cycle that occurs within an adiabatic process; meaning there is no transfer of heat. From that problem, Sal constructs Volume Ratios which is a mathematical way of proving that no heat was transferred.

Cavalieri’s Principle (Volume)
The volume of the tower in Pisa is the same whether it is leaning or not. Your collaborative geometry learners will use manipulatives to discover that the volume of shapes (i.e. pyramids, prisms, cylinders, etc.) are the same, whether they are right or oblique, as long as they have equal altitude and the cross sections parallel to and at the same distance from their respective bases is the same.

The volume of various solids is explored in five sections with the last being eight example problems including step-by-step solutions. Using Cavalieri’s principle and easy-to-follow direct instructions with colored pictures, the first section defines volume, the second explores the volume of a right rectangular prism and related solids, expanding to a general formula for the volume of any prism.

Insides and Outsides
Give small groups handfuls of unit cubes and then dare them to build as many rectangular prisms as possible using only 12 cubes. This engaging activity serves as an introduction to the volume of solid figures. In addition to volume, measurers also learn about surface area by counting the faces the cubes that are visible on their prisms.
