Objective:

After reading 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.


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 Boyle'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 Boyle's Law to describe pressure-volume relationships found in gases.
