This Self-Learning Module (SLM) is prepared so that you, our dear learners, can continue your studies and learn while at home. Activities, questions, directions, exercises, and discussions are carefully stated for you to understand each lesson.
Each SLM is composed of different parts. Each part shall guide you step-by-step as you discover and understand the lesson prepared for you.
Pre-tests are provided to measure your prior knowledge on lessons in each SLM. This will tell you if you need to proceed on completing this module or if you need to ask your facilitator or your teacher’s assistance for better understanding of the lesson. At the end of each module, you need to answer the post-test to self-check your learning. Answer keys are provided for each activity and test. We trust that you will be honest in using these.
Please use this module with care. Do not put unnecessary marks on any part of this SLM. Use a separate sheet of paper in answering the exercises and tests. And read the instructions carefully before performing each task.
How can you relate volume and temperature in real life situation? Charles’s law is responsible for the inflated tubes protruding out from a tire when it is left stranded in the hot summer days. The severe heat outside steadily flows into the tube and gradually causes the tire to expand. During cold days wherein the temperature in the environment is lower, the tire gets deflated.
This module will provide you with information and simple activities that will help you understand volume and temperature relationships at constant pressure of gases.
After going through this module, you are expected to:
1. investigate the relationship between volume and temperature at constant pressure of a gas;
2. solve problems involving changes in the condition of the gas using the equation for Charles’ Law; and
3. give application of Charles’ Law in real life situations.
Going through this module can be a meaningful learning experience. All you need to do is make use of your time and resources efficiently.
