CHEM120 OL, Week 4 LabOL Lab 7: Ideal Gas LawLearning ObjectivesExplain the physical concepts of temperature and absolute zeroDefine the relationship between pressure, volume and temperature in gases using gas thermometryApply the Ideal Gas LawIntroductionJust because Celsius, Fahrenheit and Kelvin defined their own temperature scales and named them after themselves, it doesn’t mean that you can’t create your own! In the Ideal Gas Law simulation, you will define the physical concept of temperature and absolute zero. You will observe how ideal gas molecules behave according to the Ideal Gas Law, and you’ll learn about the relationship between pressure, volume and temperature in gases using gas thermometry.Define your temperature scaleYour first mission in the Ideal Gas Law simulation will be to define a unique temperature scale. In order to complete this task, you will assign the correct temperature to various reference points. You will discover at which temperature water freezes and nitrogen boils. At the end of this mission, you will be able to calculate a new value for the Boltzmann’s constant.Formulate the Ideal Gas LawImagine how easy it would be to understand the behavior of an ideal gas if the gas molecules were so big that they could be seen with the naked eye. Well, in this simulation they can! The gas molecules are magnified, so you can see what is
