## Detail Page

This tutorial for Grades 5-8 explores properties of gases in an interactive platform. It was designed to help students understand how the mass and volume of a substance are related to its density.

Editor's Note: This item is part of NOVA's "Balloon Race Around the World" resource collection.

Please note that this resource requires Shockwave.

#### 4. The Physical Setting

4D. The Structure of Matter
• 6-8: 4D/M3ab. Atoms and molecules are perpetually in motion. Increased temperature means greater average energy of motion, so most substances expand when heated.
• 6-8: 4D/M8. Most substances can exist as a solid, liquid, or gas depending on temperature.
• 6-8: 4D/M10. A substance has characteristic properties such as density, a boiling point, and solubility, all of which are independent of the amount of the substance and can be used to identify it.
