Day 50 – Gas Pressure and Volume

Tues. Nov 12, 2013

Chemistry 1 – After describing the relationship between pressure and number of particles using a graph, particle diagram, and mathematical model we turned our attention the volume.  Using a syringe attached to a Gas Pressure Sensor we were able to easily vary the volume of the container and take measurement of the pressure.

Physics 1 – Students began by individually analyzing the above situation.  They then compared solutions and created a whiteboard with their group members.  Small groups then compared boards with another small group.  Through this process each group was able to come up with an accurate interaction diagram and two force diagrams.

Chemistry 2 – Groups continued to work on titrating household items.  Through some trial and error we are figuring out what concentration of titrant we should be using.  Since this is the first time I’ve allowed groups to freely choose what to analyze I’m learning along with them.
