Boyle's Law Lesson Plan

1. Boyle's Law Lesson Plan

Looking for a fun and interesting way to explore Boyle's Law with your students? Use this lesson plan to engage students in learning about Boyle's Law. Students will watch a video lesson, discuss gas laws, and complete a hands-on lab activity.

Boyle's Law: Gas Pressure and Volume Relationship

2. Boyle's Law: Gas Pressure and Volume Relationship

Have you ever wondered how an air powered water gun works? It uses the fantastic properties of gases to make a summer day more enjoyable! In this lesson, we will be discussing Boyle's Law and the relationship between pressure and volume of a gas.

Ideal Gas Law Lesson Plan

3. Ideal Gas Law Lesson Plan

Use this lesson plan to help you introduce students to the ideal gas law. Students will watch two video lessons, discuss gas laws, solve problems using the ideal gas equation, and perform a short hands-on activity.

The Ideal Gas Law and the Gas Constant

4. The Ideal Gas Law and the Gas Constant

Have you ever wondered why the pressure in your car's tires is higher after you have been driving a while? In this lesson, we are going to discuss the law that governs ideal gases and is used to predict the behavior of real gases: the ideal gas law.

Using the Ideal Gas Law: Calculate Pressure, Volume, Temperature, or Quantity of a Gas

5. Using the Ideal Gas Law: Calculate Pressure, Volume, Temperature, or Quantity of a Gas

In another lesson, you learned that the ideal gas law is expressed as PV = nRT. In this video lesson, we'll go one step further, examining how to rearrange the equation to solve for a missing variable when the others are known.

Ideal Gas Law Activities

6. Ideal Gas Law Activities

The ideal gas law is an important part of chemistry, but students often get bogged down with the mathematical part and miss the big picture. This series of activities will help students comprehend what the law means from an observational standpoint.
