360Science™: The Gas Laws
Concepts: Gas laws, Charles’s law
Outcomes: Students will discover the relationship between the volume and temperature of a gas (Charles’s Law) by measuring the volume of air in a sealed syringe at four different temperatures. They will place the syringe in water baths at temperatures ranging from –15 to 65 °C. Placing the syringe in baths at different temperatures will cause the volume of air inside to change accordingly. Students will plot the volume of air as a function of temperature to observe firsthand the volume/temperature relationship for a gas. In the Guided, Open and Advanced versions of this lab, students will observe the effect of atmospheric pressure on a partially filled soda can subjected to a drastic temperature change. Once the water inside the can is brought to a boil, the open end of the can will be plunged into a room-temperature water bath, causing the can to collapse inward. This collapse will be the result of a sudden change in temperature and the pressure exerted by the atmospheric gases onto the can.
Associated Phenomena: What causes winds? How are they impacted by climate change?
Our 1-year option provides access to all digital content for one year plus lab supplies for a single class of 30 students. Our 3-year option extends access to digital content to three years, with a 30% discount on refill supply kits years 2 and 3.
What is Flinn 360Science™?
We’re introducing a whole new way to teach experiential science! We’ve taken a hard look at science study from all perspectives and, thanks to the feedback of thousands of teachers nationwide, we’ve created a way to make it easier to provide personalized instruction while delivering the kind of lab experiences your students truly need.
Our new and comprehensive learning solutions are designed to bring science to life by giving you all the tools you need to incorporate more (and effective) hands-on learning in your classroom or lab. 360Science allows you to provide your students with the support they need to make real-world connections to key scientific principles and help make those abstract concepts concrete.
Every 360Science lab solves the most common challenges educators face in bringing more hands-on science to their students—from not having enough time to matching the right level of challenge for students’ abilities to providing appropriate background content, safety techniques, assessments and more.
Enable student-driven, blended learning through a unique combination of leveled lab instructions supporting prescriptive, guided- and open-inquiry lab exercises (see PDF resource for specific details) with robust digital content, such as videos and carefully curated Open Educational Resources (OER)—along with virtual reality and simulation exercises. From editable, digital instructions to assessments and alignment with Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), we have everything you need to improve mastery, remove the intimidation factor and foster your students’ natural curiosity.
HS-PS3-2. Develop and use models to illustrate that energy at the macroscopic scale can be accounted for as a combination of energy associated with the motion of particles (objects) and energy associated with the relative position of particles (objects).
HS-PS3-4. Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence that the transfer of thermal energy when two components of different temperature are combined within a closed system results in a more uniform energy distribution among the components in the system (second law of thermodynamics).
