Storyboard Text

• They inspired me, I think I can also do my own experiment...﻿
• . . . .
• few years later...
• Really!?  Then, what is it?
• That's great! We can use﻿ my new method of coating silk with rubber.﻿
• I have discovered the use of Hydrogen gas produced by the reaction of sulfuric acid on iron filings.
• It can be used in ascending a hot air balloon.﻿
• How did it happen?   What is the secret behind it? I need to find out...
• We did it! Congratulations to the both of us.
• Yes, we both did a great job!
• Jacques Alexandre César Charles
• Hundred years ago, before Charles invented his own version of hot air balloon, there was a Montgolfier brothers who first launch a successful one.
• I was born on November 12, 1746. A  mathematician and physicist who discover an unpublished Volume and Temperature relationship which is named after me  by  Gay Lussac, it is known as  Charles' Law.
• . . . And because of his aspirations and interest in aeronautics, he conduct a research and later collaborates with Nicolas Robert in an experiment.
• Charles' Law (Volume - Temperature﻿) V = kT V1T2 = V2T1
• At constant pressure, the volume of the gas is directly proportional to the absolute temperature﻿.
• On December 1, 1783, the two of them successfully rise a hydrogen balloon or hot air balloon, and from that, he seek again for the answer to his questions until he finally found something that is worthy of his time.
• Pump up your ping pong ball If a ping pong become dented ball, it can restore its roundness by popping it in a pan of water. Warm the water gently while stirring and the air inside the ball will expand as it heats up. The expanding air will push out the dent and restore the ball’s roundness.
• That is an example of uses of this law in our everyday lives. That's all for today, goodbye class!
• years later...
• ﻿Charles became a professor at the Académie des Sciences and began giving lectures to his students.
• . . . He taught each one of them about  all of the things ﻿he had learned through his experiments especially the law that he had made, until . . . he died on april 7, 1823.
• From the early years up to now, the teachings of Jacques Charles about his law is known and used, this is also paired with other law in these modern days.
