Optimum Conditions

Students use a pressure and temperature sensor to observe the effect of changing various experimental conditions on the rate of a chemical reaction.

Supports NGSS Performance Expectation HS-PS1-5: Apply scientific principles and evidence to provide an explanation about the effects of changing the temperature or concentration of the reacting particles on the rate at which a reaction occurs.

Featured Equipment

Pressure Sensor

Wireless Pressure Sensor

The Wireless Pressure Sensor accurately and consistently measures absolute gas pressure.

Temperature Sensor

Wireless Temperature Sensor

The Wireless Temperature Sensor is a general-purpose sensor found in many science labs. With a rugged, waterproof design, and long-lasting battery, students can spend more time collecting data and less time dealing with equipment.

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.
