Kinetic Theory

http://www.riverdeep.net/science/chemistry_explorer/ce_activity_pages/catn.activityi_291.jhtml                         Watch gas molecules in random motion colliding with the walls of their container. Interpreting their observations in terms of the kinetic theory of gases, they relate the number of walls-molecules collisions to the gas pressure and examine the graph of pressure (number of wall collisions) vs. time.

You raise the temperature in the balloon to see what happens. Then answer the questions following each experiment. There are six pages of experiments.

http://jersey.uoregon.edu/vlab/Thermodynamics/index1.html  In this interactive experiment you will discover what temperature does to the mixing particles that come from different chambers with different temperatures.

http://zebu.uoregon.edu/nsf/piston.html In this series of experiments, you will control the action of a piston in a pressure chamber which is filled with an ideal gas. The gas is defined by four states.
