the Web page Charles and Gay-Lussac's
Law and using the Animated
Gas Lab, you should understand the relationship between gas volume
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 Charles
and Gay-Lussac's Law (with text) and read the explanation. Next, open
the Animated Gas Lab
Web page and use it to complete the activity.
You, or you
and your partner(s), will be evaluated on the accuracy or feasibility
of your answers.
demonstrate the ability to use information found on the World Wide Web
and apply what you have learned about Charles and Gay-Lussac's Law to
describe temperature-volume relationships found in gases.
