Chem – LESSON 13: Gas Laws

What is the lesson about?

This lesson is about how gases behave. It allows you to define them in terms of several characteristics. It also teaches you about more simple definitions like pressure and temperature and more complicated situations like how gas can change under different conditions like temperature.


Why is it critical to understand?

Learning how gases work prepares you with information for later lessons like reaction rate, equilibrium, and electrochemistry. It also has many real world applications such as telling you when gas build up can become dangerous, how explosions work, what causes a car engine to move, and why balloons with rise and fall.


What should you know before attempting this lesson?
