Gas Pressure, Volume, and Temperature

Physical science learners conduct a simple experiment using the heat of their hands to affect the fluid pressure. They place a balloon atop a freezing cold bottle and observe what occurs as it warms up. Both activities demonstrate how increasing temperature creates higher pressures. With this knowledge, they construct a fountain and a thermometer. Detailed background information, materials and procedures, reading suggestions, and assessments make this a valuable resource for your physical science sessions.
