TGP1: Pressure and the gas state
Notes on ‘pressure counts’ animation
It is helpful to get students to write down the number of counts on each red section.
The red sections on each of the sides have the same areas: although there can be some difference between the counts on each side in a single ‘run’, over several ‘runs’ no particular side should have a consistently higher number of counts than the other sides.

The particles in a real sample would be colliding with each other as well as with the walls, but for simplicity this animation and the following animation only show the collisions with the walls (and with the surface of the object).
