Beginner's Guide to Propulsion
Reaction of Gases



Subject Area(s): Science, Technology Education

Grade Level: 6-8

National Standards:

Science
Science as Inquiry - Develop abilities and understandings necessary to do scientific inquiry.
Physical Science - Develop an understanding of properties and changes of properties in matter, motion and forces, and transference of energy.

Technology

Research Tools - Use content-specific tools, software and simulations (e.g., environmental probes, graphing calculators, exploratory environments, Web tools) to support learning and research.
Problem-Solving and Decision-Making Tools - Routinely and efficiently use on-line information resources to meet needs for collaboration, research, publications, communications, and productivity.

 Objectives:

After reviewing the Animated Gas Lab slide, located under Static Gases in the Propulsion Index of the Beginner's Guide to Propulsion, you will use the information to complete the activity dealing with the way gases react to outside forces.


The Beginner's Guide to Propulsion is a Web site of information prepared at NASA Glenn Research Center to help you better understand aircraft engine propulsion. In the Propulsion Index, locate Static Gases and open the slide entitled Animated Gas Lab. Study the slide and use it as background information to help you complete the activity.


Assessment:

You, or you and your partner(s), will be evaluated on the accuracy and/or feasibility of your answers.

Evaluation:

You will demonstrate the ability to understand and use information found at the Beginner's Guide to Propulsion Web site to determine the response of a gas when manipulated in a variety of ways.
