This lesson will introduce you to the behavior of gases. In particular, we will study "ideal gases," those gases whose behavior follows a set of simple physical laws derived from elementary physics.
In fact, as you will see, all gases behave "ideally" when the pressure is low enough and the temperature is high enough. For many gases, these conditions occur at room temperature and normal atmospheric pressure.
This lesson is presented using a series of five Authorware modules. To view them, you must have downloaded and installed the correct Authorware plug-in. Alternatively, you may also download an executable version of each module and view them off line. Click here to go to the introductory page if you need help doing either of these.
In addition to the material presented on line, there is a laboratory exercise and a problem set you must complete and turn in for this lesson. Both of these are found in your workbook.
Before you begin this lesson, and periodically while you are going through it, you will want to review the objectives listed in the Introduction page. When you have completed the lesson, be sure and try the self-quiz. Answers to the self quiz and to many of the exercises in your workbook can be found on the Answer page, which you will find in the Wrap-up page - the link to which is on the left side of this page near the top.
