4.3.3.3 Increasing the pressure of a gas (physics only) (HT only)

Content

Work is the transfer of energy by a force.

Doing work on a gas increases the internal energy of the gas and can cause an increase in the temperature of the gas.

Students should be able to explain how, in a given situation eg a bicycle pump, doing work on an enclosed gas leads to an increase in the temperature of the gas.

WS 1.2 Use a variety of models such as representational, spatial, descriptive, computational and mathematical to solve problems, make predictions and to develop scientific explanations and understanding of familiar and unfamiliar facts.
