|title: Kinetic Theory Apparatus|
aka: Cenco kinetic theory apparatus
A clear cylinder has a movable piston and a vibrating bottom plate. Beads inside the cylinder model the behavior of atoms/molecules as the emperature increases.
computer simulation can be found on Phet.
Why does the piston rise when the beads move faster?
How do the beads produce pressure?
