Gas Pressure and Temperature Relationship

This Gas Pressure and Temperature Relationship lab resource also includes:

Humans tend to huddle together when cold and move around more when warm, but do gas particles follow the same pattern? Scholars use a temperature probe, a pressure sensor, and air to study the relationship between temperature and gas pressure. They gather data, display it in a table, then interpret the results with a graph, a paragraph, and a mathematical equation.

Instructional Ideas

  • Discuss how to determine the appropriate scale for each axis of the graph
Classroom Considerations

  • Requires specialized equipment including a CBL system, Vernier Direct Connect Temperature Probe, and more
  • Relies on prior knowledge of the properties of gas, collecting data, creating graphs, and interpreting graphs and data
  • This resource is only available on an unencrypted HTTP website. It should be fine for general use, but don’t use it to share any personally identifiable information

  • Offers three additional extensions to the experiment
  • Includes a step-by-step guide for calibrating the pressure sensor with the calculator
