Carolina Chemonstrations®: Gas Laws Kit

Item # 840375 Exclusive

In this 4-demonstration kit (which includes mystery flame, Charles’ fountain, ideal sports ball, and Gay-Lussac’s cooler), students make predictions before each demo, then observe the behavior of gases, and afterward apply the gas laws to explain their observations. The 4 demonstrations together require approximately 40 min but can be performed individually in less time. Kit materials are sufficient to perform each of the 4 demonstrations at least 5 times.

In this 4-demonstration kit, students observe the behavior of gases and apply the gas laws to explain their observations. Students first make predictions about what they'll observe during the demonstrations, then they create particulate-level representations of the macro-level behavior. Big picture questions help students think critically about gas laws, and discussion questions extend the science content to related concepts or topics.

In the Carolina Chemonstrations®: Gas Laws Kit, students will observe:

  • A mystery flame, in which a burning candle is drawn into the neck of an inverted flask
  • Charles' fountain, in which cool water creates a fountain inside a flask
  • The ideal sports ball, in which the volume and deflated mass of a ball are determined
  • Gay-Lussac's cooler, in which gas laws are used to explain why a ball at reduced temperature also has reduced pressure

The 4 demonstrations together require approximately 40 min but can be performed individually in less time. Kit materials are sufficient to perform each of the 4 demonstrations at least 5 times.

  • This item is only available from Carolina Biological Supply Company.
