The Wireless Pressure Sensor allows students to easily collect accurate gas pressure data for a wide range of applications. Included is a 60cc syringe, tubing, and connectors that facilitate experiments such as Boyle's Law or measuring pinch-grip strength. Within PASCO's software, students can easily select their desired units from a list containing kPa, mmHg, inHg, mbar, psi, atm, and torr.

Visit PASCO's Experiment Library to view all activities for this product.
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 pressure sensor and a weather sensor to investigate the rate of transpiration in plants under normal and humid conditions.
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 a fast response temperature sensor and absolute pressure sensor to obtain evidence of chemical reactions and to determine if the reactions are endothermic or exothermic.
In this lab, students will use absolute pressure sensors to investigate how changes in the volume of a confined gas with constant temperature affects pressure.
In this lab, students will use fast response temperature sensors and absolute pressure sensors to measure changes in the temperature of an endothermic reaction and the temperature and pressure changes of an exothermic reaction.
