What factors affect how much a material can expand as conditions in its surroundings change?
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 pressure sensors to determine how the stirring and concentration of reactants affect how fast the reaction between acetic acid and sodium bicarbonate occurs.
How can you maximize the product in a reaction?
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 use absolute pressure and temperature sensors to experimentally determine a numerical value for absolute zero in degrees Celsius.
