Featured College Experiments: March 2022

Featured Experiment for College
Free trials for Vernier apps!

Vernier offers more than 1,000 experiments in biology, chemistry, engineering/robotics, and physics that can help you inspire students and integrate data-collection technology into your science courses. We will be featuring at least one of our experiments in each edition of The Caliper.


The Molar Volume of a Gas
In this experiment, students use the Go Direct® Gas Pressure Sensor and Go Direct Temperature Probe (or the Gas Pressure Sensor and Stainless Steel Temperature Probe) to 

  • Measure the gas production of a chemical reaction by a pressure change
  • Determine the molar volume of the gas produced in the reaction
  • Calculate the molar volume of a gas at STP

The Molar Volume of a Gas,” along with a supporting video and data file, is available in Vernier Graphical Analysis Pro. To support science educators during this unprecedented time, we are extending the free trial period for Graphical Analysis Pro through June 2022.

Projectile Motion
In this free experiment download, students use the Vernier Video Analysis® app to 

  • Obtain position, velocity, and time data for a projectile
  • Analyze the position vs. time and velocity vs. time graphs for both the horizontal and vertical components of the projectile’s motion
  • Create and analyze their own video of an object undergoing projectile motion

Projectile Motion” was originally published in Vernier Video Analysis: Motion and Sports, an e-book featuring 12 investigations in which students explore velocity, acceleration, and sports activities using Vernier Video Analysis. To support science educators during this unprecedented time, we are extending the free trial period for Video Analysis through June 2022.
