Virtual experiments on gases

In this series of virtual experiments, we will explore the following topcis:
  1. Gay-Lussac's law: the pressure-temperature relationship at constant volume
  2. Charles's law: the volume-temperature relationship under constant pressure
  3. Boyle's law: the pressure-volume relationship at constant temperature
  4. Hysteresis of isotherms
  5. The pressure balance of two gases
  6. Decompression cools gas: how air conditioners work?
