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.
