Physics lesson plan Weather 5 th grade Goals and objectives : To familiarize the student with various temperature scales and to give the student practical experience measuring temperature. Then, the determination of dew point and relative humidity will be performed. Materials : Thermocouple, metal beakers, voltage meter, mercury thermometer. Background : The air consists of many molecules of different gases. These include nitrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide, water vapor, argon, and trace amounts of other gasses. These molecules are moving very fast. As heat is removed from these molecules they

Unformatted text preview: move slower, as heat is added they move faster. The temperature of a region is defined in terms of the average energy of motion of the molecules in this region, or in other words the temperature of a region is defined in terms of the average kinetic energy of the molecules in this region. The molecules of the gasses, liquids, and solids in a region are in thermal equilibrium if they have the same temperature. Procedures : Measure temperatures of fingers, tap water, and ice water in both Celsius and Fahrenheit....
