Beginner's Guide to Propulsion
Charles and Gay-Lussac's Law


Subject Area: Chemistry, Physics, Integrated Science
Grade Level: 10-12
National Standards:
Science
  • Unifying Concepts and Processes: Systems, order, and organization.
  • Physical Science: Properties of matter.
  • Science and Technology: Understandings about science and technology.
  • History and Nature of Science: Nature of scientific knowledge.

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 Charles and Gay-Lussac's Law and using the Animated Gas Lab, you should understand the relationship between gas volume and temperature.


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.


Assessment:

You, or you and your partner(s), will be evaluated on the accuracy or 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 Charles and Gay-Lussac's Law to describe temperature-volume relationships found in gases.
