The Wireless Pressure Sensor allows students to easily collect accurate gas pressure data for a wide range of applications. Included is a 60-cc syringe, tubing, and connectors that facilitate experiments such as Boyle's Law, measuring pinch-grip strength, measuring hydrostatic pressure in water. Within PASCO's software, students can easily select their desired units from a list containing kPa, mmHg, inHg, mbar, psi, atm, and torr.
- Measures pressure even when the pressure within the system drops below ambient pressure.
- Supports common units (kPa, atm, psi, mmHg, or N/m2) for many applications.
- Features Bluetooth® wireless connectivity and long-lasting rechargeable battery.

In this lab, students will use absolute pressure sensors to measure changes in air pressure within a model “chest cavity” while causing the syringe "diaphragm" to change its volume.
Use an absolute pressure sensor to learn about the components of air and how to determine the percent of oxygen in air.
Students use a variety of sensors and particle modeling to characterize physical and chemical changes of matter.
In this lab, students investigate the rate of transpiration in plants under normal and humid conditions. Then, they will have the opportunity to design their own inquiry experiments to test additional variables.
In this lab, students will determine the ideal amount of sodium bicarbonate to completely react with 10 mL of 0.50 M acetic acid. Students will use these values to determine the mole-to-mole ratio in the balanced chemical equation.
Students use a pressure sensor to study the movement of water through a cell membrane model by osmosis.
