Use the Gas Pressure Sensor to monitor pressure changes of a gas in chemistry and biology experiments.

Description

The Gas Pressure Sensor can be used to monitor pressure changes in a gas. The range is wide enough to perform Boyle’s law yet it is sensitive enough to conduct vapor-pressure or pressure-temperature experiments. Biology teachers can use the Gas Pressure Sensor to monitor transpiration or respiration in an enclosed environment.
