Chemistry: Hot Molecules

by Texas Instruments - Simulation Lesson


  • Students will observe the motion of molecules with changes in temperature.
  • Students will observe the relationship between temperature and pressure of a confined gas.
  • Students will predict the effect of a change in temperature on the pressure of a confined gas.


  • gas
  • heat
  • molecule
  • pressure
  • temperature

About the Lesson

This lesson requires students to observe and make predictions about the motion and pressure of the molecules of a confined gas as the temperature is increased or decreased. A guided lesson video (optional) is also available for this activity. The video is targeted at students and designed to help guide them through the interactive exploration and the concepts covered within.
