Featured in PASCO’s Physics through Inquiry Teacher Guide
Features over 30 inquiry based labs covering the core topic areas of mechanics, electricity and magnetism, optics, thermodynamics and more.
Use an absolute pressure sensor and a temperature sensor to experimentally determine a numerical value for absolute zero in degrees Celsius.
Students experimentally determine a numerical value for absolute zero in °C.By doing this, they:
- Develop an understanding of the direct relationship between temperature and pressure of an enclosed gas with constant volume.
- Apply statistical methods to experimentally gathered data in order to extrapolate values that are not measurable.
- Learn how an ideal gas can be used as a thermometer.
Sensors / Equipment Used:
Designed for ideal gas law allowing both absolute pressure and temperature measurement. For use with PASPORT Interfaces.
