Day 42 – Pressure vs Temperature #180blog #modchem #chemchat

No post yesterday due to Parent Advisor Conferences. Today, students moved on to testing temperature vs pressure using our LabQuests. They plotted pressure vs the temp in Celsius and plotted it. Most of them found an equation similar to P=(.31kpa/C)*V + 91 kpa. From this they found absolute zero to be around -300 C. It’s a pretty cool way for them to discover this concept with out being lectured.
