Rates of Reaction

In this lab, students will use an absolute pressure sensor to determine the effects of temperature, concentration, and surface area on the rate of a chemical reaction by measuring changes in absolute pressure as the reaction proceeds.

Featured Equipment

Extension Cable

PASPORT Sensor Extension Cable

Allows an additional two-meter long extension on all PASPORT sensors.

Absolute Pressure Sensor

PASPORT Absolute Pressure Sensor

Measures gas pressure from various sources and internal vacuum allows consistent measurement above and below ambient conditions. For use with PASPORT Interfaces.

Many lab activities can be conducted with our Wireless, PASPORT, or even ScienceWorkshop sensors and equipment. For assistance with substituting compatible instruments, contact PASCO Technical Support. We're here to help.
