Gases & Kinetic Theory

Odyssey includes a series of 20 experiments on gases and kinetic theory:

Experiment demonstrating the effect of temperature on gases


The Density of Gases

Shows how gases occupy space relating to temperature and volume.

The Motion of the Molecules in a Gas

Demonstrates the movement of molecules in a gas with attention to molecule-molecule collisions.

The Forces between Gas Molecules

Illustrates (lack of) force between gas molecules.

The Temperature of a Gas

Investigates the temperature of gases and its proportionality to kinetic energy.

The Pressure of a Gas

Describes the relationship between pressure and it affect on particles in a gas.

The Volume of a Gas

Shows how gases behave with changes in volume of their environment.

The Ability of Gases to Mix

Illustrates the mixing of gases by simulating two gases exposed to each other in a container.

Boyle`s Law

Introduces Boyles Law demonstrating the proportionality between pressure and volume.

The Pressure-Temperature Relationship

Investigates the proportionality between pressure and temperature.

Avogadro`s Law

Demonstrates Avogadro's Law showing the volume of a gas is proportional to the number of molecules in that gas.

The Universality of the Ideal Gas Law

Illustrates the similarity of gases thermodynamically even if many gases have different characteristics.

Mole Fractions

Shows how chemists use mole fractions very commonly in order to describe the composition of mixtures and particularly mixtures of gases.

The Molecular Speeds in a Gas

Demonstrates the distribution of speed of molecules within gases via an interactive experiment.

The Maxwell-Boltzmann Distribution of Speeds

Introduces the Maxwell-Boltzmann Distribution. Temperature and other parameters can be altered and the effect on the plotted distribution studied.

Speed Distribution and Temperature

Investigates the relationship between speed distribution of molecules and the temperature of the gas.

Speed Distribution and Molar Mass

Illustrates the mass dependence of the distribution of speeds.

The Speed Distribution for Gas Mixtures

Using and experiment this section describes the distribution of speeds for a mixture of gases.


Introduces the concept of effusion with an interactive experiment.


Demonstrates diffusion in relation to the mean free path of a molecule.

Gases at High Pressure

Shows how pressure effects the behavior of gases with an interactive experiment.
