Gas laws, pressure, fluids and viscosity
Several ideas and equations in these two sections are built on the understanding of a particle model from GCSE, but the ideas have not really been defined or brought together before in this way or with the applications given (such as the storage of gas cylinders) that will be seen in a work setting. There are several ideas for practical work and contexts for this topic area in this collection and these could be taught first to develop an intuitive understanding of the concept before then using mathematical relationships to describe them.
Whilst this list provides a source of information and ideas for experimental work, it is important to note that recommendations can date very quickly. Do NOT follow suggestions which conflict with current advice from CLEAPSS, SSERC or recent safety guides. eLibrary users are responsible for ensuring that any activity, including practical work, which they carry out is consistent with current regulations related to Health and Safety and that they carry an appropriate risk assessment. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
