Title Gases Understanding physical properties of gases (Inquiry Based)
Description The students will use the simulation to learn the goals through an inquiry approach. This is a revised version of 3 activities I used to use. My students used States of Matter in Physics and also my Balloons and Bouyancy activity. There are clicker questions. Learning Goals:Students will be able to:Describe a molecular model of gas pressure.Describe what happens to the measurable quantities if changes to the gas system are made. Changes can be adding/removing molecules or heat, increasing/decreasing volume or pressure & Make sense of the measurable quantities of gases by analyzing examples of macroscopic (visible) things that are similar. Explain using physics what is happening on a molecular level when changes are made to a gas system.
