Gas Properities Definitions

Subject Area: Chemistry, Physics, Integrated Science
Grade Level: 10-12
National Standards:

Science
  • Unifying Concepts and Processes:
    • Systems, order, and organization.
    • Evidence, models, and explanation.
    • Form and function
  • Science as Inquiry: Understandings about scientific inquiry

  • History and Nature of Science: Historical perspectives.

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 reading the Web page Gas Properties Definitions, complete the activity to demonstrate an understanding of the properties of gases.


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. Click Beginner's Guide Index to access the list of slides. Open the slide called Gas Properties Definitions (with text) and read the explanation. Access additional Web pages as needed to complete the activity.


Assessment:

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

Evaluation:

You will demonstrate the ability to use information found on the World Wide Web and apply what you have learned about the properties of gases to answer questions about those properties.
