In this virtual laboratory you will use an on-line simulation from the University of Colorado PhET group to explore how the bulk properties of a gas are related to the behavior of the individual gas molecules.

Link to the simulation: http://phet.colorado.edu/simulations/sims.php?sim=Gas_Properties  Click "Run Now!".

Explore the interface!  (Click "Help" for hints.)
