Pressure Concepts - Question-Specific Help

The Pressure Concepts Concept Builder provides learners an opportunity to investigate three ideas related to gas pressure. There are a total of 36 questions organized into 14 Question Groups and spread across three different activities. In the first activity - A versus B - learners investigate the causes of gas pressure from the perspective of individual particles. The effect of four important variables - number of particles, speed of particles, mass of particles, and size of container - upon the gas pressure are explored. In the second activity - Pressure Units - learners compare the relative magnitude of three different pressure values. The values are expressed in different units so that the learner must express some comfort with the relative size of each unit. In the third activity - Manometers - learners use manometer information to determine the pressure of a sample of gas. Question-specific help is provided for each of the 14 Question Groups. The built-in score-keeping makes this Concept Builder a perfect candidate for a classroom activity.
