In this lesson you will be introduced to external factors affecting gases, the Kelvin Scale and the relationships between volume (V), pressure (P), Temperature (T) for a confined gas.

By the end of this lesson, students should be able to:

• describe the relationships between the volume of a gas (V) and its pressure (P) and temperature (T) using your own words, diagrams and mathematical equations;
• explain how Boyle’s, Charles’s and Gay-Lussac’s equations were derived;
• convert degrees Celsius to Kelvin and Kelvin to Celsius;
• define absolute zero;
• solve gas problems involving Boyle’s Law, Charles’s Law, Gay-Lussac’s Law or the Combined Gas Law

Let’s examine the first two gas laws: Boyle’s and Charles’s Laws.  Please watch the video lesson and take detailed notes.

The video lesson below introduces Gay-Lussac’s Law and The Combined Gas Law.  Watch it carefully and take detailed notes.

Below is a Study-note on the Combined Gas Law/  Download it, print it out if possible and use it to review all gas laws as you prepare for a quiz or test. Loading... Taking too long? Reload document
