The Pressure Cooker: A Module on the Properties of Matter. Tech Physics Series.
Technical Education Research Center, Cambridge, MA.
Experiments to provide an understanding of the principles related to the pressure cooker are presented. Objectives included are designed to provide the learner with the ability to calibrate a thermistor for measuring temperature; explain the meaning of latent and specific heat; calculate latent and specific heat; use a Bourdon tube pressure gauge to measure pressure; and to calculate the force on a surface. Experiences are provided so that the learner also is able to use the General Gas Laws, the phase diagram of water, and operate and explain the physical properties of pressure cookers. (SA)
