***TITLE: **

# Comparing the graphs of Boyles and Charles Gas Laws

* *

***Annotation**

This lesson focuses on the gas
laws of Boyles and Charles and a comparison of the graphs that laboratory data
can generate.

## *Primary
Learning Outcome:

Student should be able to use learned techniques in
laboratory to write up an experiment and compare data from two difference
experiments. The students should also learn about using a spreadsheet to write
data and construct a graph using their data generated from experiment.

***Assessed QCC:**

1: The learner should be able to utilize the following
scientific process skills in lab explorations: observation, communication,
metric measurement, prediction, inference, and gathering and interpretation
information.

1.2: The learner will be able to judge procedures, data, and
conclusions to find out the validity of scientific research.

3.1: The learner will be able to learn and use safety
protocols that are specific to an exploration.

15.3: The learner
will be able to utilize the gas laws to calculate and describe the impact of
temperature and pressure on the volume of gas.

***Total Duration:**

2 and one half hours

Step 2:

Using the data collected in the laboratory experiment,
create a spreadsheet using a program such as Excel. Then graph the data using
the graphing function. Compare the two graphs. Click
here for a sample of students work.

***Assessment:**

The students are assessed based on lab performance and
graphing

Extension:

Students who already know the lesson can be asked
specifically about the equation of the line or the slope of the line.
