the Web page Boyle's Law and using
the Animated Gas Lab,
you should understand the inverse relationship between the pressure and
volume of a gas.
Guide to Rockets is a Web site of information prepared at NASA
Glenn Research Center to help you better understand rockets and rocket propulsion.
Click Beginner's Guide Index
to access the list of slides. Open the slide called Boyle'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
demonstrate the ability to use information found on the World Wide Web
and apply what you have learned about Boyle's Law to describe pressure-volume
relationships found in gases.
