Can Cruncher

Young scholars experiment with boiling water and cans to study changes in pressure. In this pressure lesson plan, students use pop cans filled with varying amounts of water heated to boiling. Young scholars drop the cans in cold water and observe the results. They also stopper a can filled with steam and observe the results as it cools. They boil water at lower temperatures than normal using the pressure from steam in a filter flask.
