A brief description of how Gas Lanterns work. This site is part of HowStuffWorks.com.
A brief description of how Gas Turbine Engines ( Jet Engines) work. From HowStuffWorks.com.
Java Applet simulating isobaric, isovolumetric or isothermal expansions of an ideal gas
Good revision guide aimed at UK A level standard, covers topics such as temperature scales, heat capacity, gas laws etc.
Demonstration of how temperature, pressure and volume affects the motion of gas particles in a balloon. NB. You can 'pop' the balloon!!
Describes the laws of thermodynamics, and applications such as gas turbines and air conditioning with definitions of related terms.
The site gives a practical demonstration on the collisions between gas molecules by varying the temperature and volume. Java applet.
Allows you to perform gas law experiments including density / molecular weight variations. A very good site for demonstrating variables in the gas laws.
This is a very simple model of a gas. Here, a single atom bounces elastically in a one-dimensional cavity. It will continue to bounce at the same speed forever if the piston does not move.
A delightful animation of an ideal gas in a container. The number of particles, their velocity, pressure and the width of the container can be varied. The volume is then given.
