I posted a help video on the gas laws page in case you need it.
Here are some helpful hints when doing the gas laws lab:
Part 1: You control the T
-Make sure to turn on the layer tool. (for all parts of lab)
-When running experiments you can control the number of molecules by typing a number (such as 20) in the gas chamber box (doesn't matter light or heavy molecules)
-Make sure the variables you are testing are not locked as a constant once you start conducting your experiment.
-Make sure your temperatures are at least 3000K apart to make graphing easier.
Part 2: You control the T
-Make sure to use the ruler tool to measure the length of the box (in nm). The layer tool tells you the height of the box (make sure it is placed all the way at the top of the box).
-Volume of a box is L X H X W (assume the width is 1 nm)
-Make the box as small as possible to start and lock the volume. Place your molecules in the box (not too many).
-Then go ahead and lock the pressure.
-Now change the temperature to affect the volume.
Part 3: You control the V
-Start with the volume locked and place your choice of # of molecules in the box.
-Now unlock the volume and lock the temperature.
-Control the volume by pulling the handle and see how it affects the pressure.
