Many chemical reactions involve gaseous reactants or products. This lab requires students to combine what has been learned about stoichiometry and balanced chemical equations with what has been learned about the ideal gas law (PV = nRT) to precisely predict the volume of gas that will be produced during a chemical reaction. Students will be graded not by the teacher, but by the gas itself!

Concepts

  • Ideal Gas Law
  • Stoichiometry
  • Molar Volume
  • Inquiry
