Peer instruction questions: internal energy

These slides show questions I used when teaching internal energy using peer instruction. The slides are in Danish, but I hope you get the idea and there is always Google translate. Any questions, just leave a comment.

The slide use a Molecular Workbench simulation you can access here (or download here once you have MW installed), and is further described in this blog post.

I start and carefully explain the simulation on the left, then ask what we will see when we start the simulation on the right.  Then vote, and explain answer.  Then finally run the simulation on the right.
