This simulation will provide an insight into the properties of gases. You can explore the more advanced features which enables you to explore three physical situations: Hot Air Balloon (rigid open container with its own heat source), Rigid Sphere (rigid closed container), and Helium Balloon (elastic closed container).
Through this activity you can:
Determine what causes the balloon, rigid sphere, and helium balloon to rise up or fall down in the box.
Predict how changing a variable among Pressure, Volume, Temperature and number influences the motion of the balloons.
