Notes: Methods of thermal energy transfer
HW: Thermal Energy Poster Create a poster that creatively illustrates a scene in which conduction, convection, and radiation are occurring. up to 5 points awarded per method of thermal energy transfer, based on accuracy and clarity of your identified and described part of your scene. up to 5 points awarded (a bit subjectively) on the creativity, neatness, etc. that contributes to the appearance overall of your poster. Please put your name(s) on the front in case they get scored after being displayed in the hallway. Requirements:

Wednesday, Mar. 27

Lab prep/practice: Effect of Volume on the Pressure of a Gas
Work on the prelab questions (lab sheet at the lab benches). Make sure you know how the equipment works. If you have time, you can get your data todaybut only if you have time for ALL data collection. Lab 2: Pivot Interactives LabComplete the online lab titled "Relationship Between Temperature of a Gas and Its Pressure" (or something like that...it's available in your assignment list in Pivot. :) ) 
Thursday, Mar. 28

Labs, day 2: Collect Data for the Volume and Pressure relationship using the equipment and procedure you perfected yesterday
Continue working on the online lab. Volume's Effect on Pressure: Lab Analysis (a guided formal lab writeup) is to be typed and will be only submitted online to www.turnitin.com You will not need to submit a printedout copy. Just submit the electronic copy. Due Friday, April 5 Temperature's Effect on Pressure: Lab Analysis is done solely within the Pivot Interactives platform. Answer each question fully and submit/save your answers Due Friday, April 5 
Friday, Mar. 29

Postlab discussion: what you SHOULD have seen in your labs
If time, there will be work time on either lab (and not for other class' homework. Next Tuesday is the only other day where you will be given class time to work on your written report.
