Pressure-Volume Relationship of Gases

Last Updated: 8/1/18

Teaching Standards: 

This module explores the direct proportional relationship between pressure and temperature, using a Raspberry Pi and SenseHAT enclosed inside a plastic bag. Compressing the bag causes an increase in pressure, with a corresponding increase in temperature which is observed due to the increase in kinetic energy of the gas molecules.

The presentation material can be downloaded at Pressure-Volume Relationship of Gases.
