In this activity, learners discover the relationship between temperature and pressure in the lower atmospheres of Jupiter and Earth. Learners chart the increasing temperature as they add pressure to a 2-L soda bottle with a Fizz-Keeper Pump. This activity is one station that can be combined with other stations for an hour and half lesson on weather patterns on Jupiter and Earth.
