Discussion for Ideal Gas Law Simulation

The application is quite good. I found navigating through the graphs and situation responses a little unclear and clunky. Having the instructions pop up immediately upon entering the site would make the experience better instead of them being in a link.
I liked the flexibility/variables offered by the site. The way it is constructed without much explanation would require that it be used as a demonstration device in the classroom, and not left to the student as a tutorial, without sufficient background understanding.

Una muy buena herramienta tecnologica para el aprendizaje de los alumnos en aula, de facil uso y aplicación . Se observa en forma interactiva como se comporta la ley de gases ideales al ir variando la temperatura, presión y numero de moles.

vary, but average does not.

and sliders work. The interaction between the molecules and the walls as well
as with each other was very well done, with molecules changing direction with
even the slightest contact between one another. This simulation would enhance
the efectivenss of the teachers ability to teach and the students ability to
minutes know how to use the program.

with guidance to use. Can discover relationships of variables.
moles (n) and temperature since PV=nRT, the math allows it!

definitely use this in my classroom to introduce gas law variables and kinetic
energy. This simulation is easy to use but the students will need guidance in
establishing the relationships between the variables. The attached worksheet
helps the student focus on establishing the relationships between variables.
the straight line relationships and can use the equation for the line
immediately to answer questions in the worksheet. The help menu was a bit hidden
for me. But I found it eventually.

with a fundamental knowledge of kinetic theory will be able to use this
2. Very high quality. Variables are easy to change, and the visual is terrific.
I like the tracking device.
3. The next time I present gases I will use this, and I will link it to my class
homepage for the students to play with. It will definitely enhance the
concepts for them.
version of Netscape v4.72. The JAVA must not be compatible because I get error
messages as the applet is loaded.
