Product Details

Modern chemistry developed as scientists connected results obtained studying different properties of gases. Explore the principles needed for students to build their own “solid” connections with six best-of-the-best activities—three experiments, two demonstrations and a POGIL™ activity.

• Begin exploring with the Common Gases experiment. Students prepare five gases and compare and contrast their physical and chemical properties.
• Flaming Vapor Ramp demonstration will amaze students, and they will also learn an important safety lesson.
• Set up two gas law experiments, Boyle’s Law in a Bottle and Charles’s Law and Absolute Zero, using activity stations.
• What can pressure do to us? Find out with the Collapsing Can demonstration!
• Gas Variables POGIL activity ties it all together!

The package includes enough chemicals and specialty equipment to perform the lab and learning activities listed below. Quantities of chemicals are sufficient for three classes of 30 students working in pairs! Instructions for all activities may be found in Chemistry of Gases, Volume 8, and The Gas Laws, Volume 9 in the Flinn ChemTopic™ Labs series, which are included in the package. Common laboratory equipment is required and available separately.

  • Common Gases (Experiment)
  • Boyle’s Law (Experiment)
  • Charles’s Law (Experiment)
  • Gas Variables (POGIL™ Activity)
  • Collapsing Can (Demonstration)
  • Flaming Vapor Ramp (Demonstration)
