Absolute Zero

Unit 2: Effects of Heat Energy Transfers on Earth's Atmosphere
Lesson 1 of 14

Objective: SWBAT 1) describe the relationship between the Celsius and Kelvin temperature scales; 2) explain the concept of absolute zero; and 3) describe the motion of gas molecules according to the kinetic theory of gases.

Big Idea: Students build on their understanding of measuring heat with this investigation into what we mean by absolute zero.
