This lab manual contains descriptions of a series of laboratories covering the ideal gas laws and ideal gas processes. These experiments are designed for introductory high school and college introductory physics, chemistry, and engineering courses. Each experiment includes the intended audience, learning goals, and a short introduction to the physics. The experiments include Boyle's Law, work done in an isothermal process, adiabatic processes, thermodynamic cycles, and the heat capacity of a gas.

These labs are designed for an adiabatic gas law apparatus developed at Andrews University.
