Ideal Gas Law Simulation

Rating: 5 stars
Used in Course: Used in course
Submitted by: Kathy Flynn (Faculty), Mar 05, 2003
Comment: I have played with this simulation for 3 hours over the course of a week. I will
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.
Excellent simulation.

Technical Remarks:

The worksheet has the greatest impact when used with Excel. The students can see
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.
