Using Temperature Probes to Investigate Properties of Phase Changes

Seventh graders are introduced to the Vernier Probe Technology through laboratory modules which investigated the physical properties of water and different alcohols. They then use phase transition graphs to interpret and evaluate the boiling point of water while the rate of evaporation was investigated to determine how molecular properties influence physical properties of alcohols.

Lesson Planet is helpful. At first I had difficulty understanding the how to and what. Now it seems that Lesson Planet understands using my attempts to predict what my interests are. Thank you Lesson Planet.
