This web page is an interactive physics simulation on the ideal gas law. The page states the assumptions behind the law, and the cases when it works. The formula is provided, and the attached Java applet illustrates how the gas particle collisions are modeled.
This is part of a collection of similar simulation-based student activities.
Please note that this resource requires
Java Applet Plug-in.
