Problem/challenge/misconception : (a) Atmospheric pressure caused by the collision of air molecules on the surface.

Hand-On Activity to conceptuali e atmospheric pressure. !opic : "nderstanding atmosphric pressure. Approach : Active #earning $ethods : Hands-On Activity %mplementing strategy : &i' activity stations are prepared around the laboratory. &tudents are divided into si' groups and rotate to perform the simple activity at each station. (or) sheet is provided at each station. !eacher discuss the results of the Hand-On Activity *ith the students. !eacher perform one demonstration connected to atmospheric pressure follo*e by discussion.( Optional ) Station 1 : Spiderman. Station 2 : Breaking metre ruler using newspaper. Station 3 : Anti-gravity water Station 4 : Shelled boiled egg in orni le !lask. Station " : #rumpled plasti mineral water. Station $ : %rinking oke %emonstration : #rumpled tin an.

(or)sheet for &tation / Apparatus : 7ou are provided with a !lat bottomed oni al !lask and boiling water. (aterial : shelled boiled egg. %nstruction: 1. &our the boiled water into the oninal !lask to about hal! o! its volume . 2. &la e the boiled egg at the mouth o! the oni al !lask and make sure about a third o! the egg is inserted into the mouth. 3. Shower with tap water. ,uestions : 1. 'hat happened to egg a!ter a !ew minutes / (Egg slowly slide down the mouth of the conical flask) 2. 'hat an you say about the air pressure inside the !lask be!ore and a!ter the egg slides down the mouth o! the oni al !lask / ( The air pressure is higher before the egg slides down the flask) 3. 'hat makes the egg slowly slides down into the oni al !lask / ( Atmospheric pressure which is higher than the air pressure insde the flask caused the boiled egg to be pushed down) 0'tension : %o you think you will get the same result i! you do the e4periment in a va uumed room /
