Hon Chemistry 1-22-19 Blocks of the Periodic Table & Noble Gas Notation

HON CHEMISTRY: Wow! You learned a lot today! Don’t we serve an awesome God?!? You probably knew the periodic table was really organized, but did you realize that it was THAT organized? Awesome!

Practice what you’ve learned!! You’ll get the hang of it and be as laid back as this “noble” fellow in no time! πŸ˜‰

Chemistry 1-22-19 Applications of Radioactivity

CHEMISTRY: Radioactive isotopes all around! Did you ever dream there were so many applications of radioactivity? This is a pic of a test used to check on blood flow through the heart during a stress test. Fun, huh!? Click on the link below the pic to learn more from Cedars-Sinai hospital.

Here’s the lecture from today – applications of radioactive isotopes. We’ll finish more applications and then fission and fusion on Monday. Have you checked out the Chapter 21 Stuff to Know & Study Suggestions sheet? Check out the Test Info tab!

IMPORTANT: Don’t forget about the Half Life lab! Scroll down to find the post for your class and for more information. Data is due when? Where? Check the post and the syllabus for info!

1st Period Chem Half-Life Simulation Lab

Hey guys – this is where 1st Period Chemistry posts results for the Half-Life Simulation lab. You’ll just list your data from the first data table as a comment – just like you comment every week, except this time you are just listing the data from the first data table.

Don’t forget that your results must be posted by Saturday, Jan. 26, by 8:00 A.M. The lab report is due by 8:00 A.M. on Tuesday, Jan. 29 – save as a PDF to both your Google Drive Chemistry Shared folder AND turnitin.com.

Remember, you don’t have to use candies; you may use coins or anything else that has two sides. Please note that you are to post the number of “radioactive” nuclides remaining after each toss.

Just to clarify, everything on the lab sheets will go in your lab report on that you will post on Google Drive: Title, Objective, Procedure, Observations (with data table), Conclusion, and Questions. Don’t forget that your graph needs to be either a full page graph that you do on Excel or a similar program, or you can draw a full page graph on graph paper, scan a very clean, sharp copy and copy it into your lab report. And don’t forget that the analysis questions, calculations, graph, etc., go after your conclusion.

Happy counting – and wait until AFTER the lab to snack!! πŸ™‚

Hon Chemistry 1-18-19 Orbital Notation & Electron Configuration Notation

HON CHEMISTRY: Wow, you did a great job today! Did quantum numbers begin making more sense when you started using them? Good work today on orbital notation. I think you’re going to be seeing arrows and numbers in your sleep!

And then, just when you were getting the hang of drawing arrows, I go and change it! But don’t you think writing electron configuration notation is a whole lot shorter than doing orbital notation? Don’t get me wrong, knowing how to do orbital is great for seeing how the electrons are paired, but this way is waaaay shorter!

Be sure and practice with the homework tonight, and don’t forget to use the Aufbau “chart”! Let me know if you figure out the riddle!!

Chemistry 1-18-19 Half Life Problems

CHEMISTRY: These banana’s been through too many half lives for you?? Great job thinking through the half-life problems! Be sure and practice, practice, practice! They aren’t super difficult, but if you don’t practice, you’ll be as lost as a ball in high weeds!!

What about the Half Life thLab? Now may be the time to get started since next week will be a busy week! Be sure and read the lab ahead of time so you’ll be prepared with the materials you need. I’ll post where you’ll put your results next week.

Chemistry 1-17-19 Radioactive Decay & Half Life

CHEMISTRY: Today we finished talking about the properties of radioactive nuclides, then it was all about arrows and where to put them! πŸ™‚

HOMEWORK UPDATE FOR THURSDAY (Due Friday): Pg. 672 – 674; 11 – 21, 30 – 33, 40, 42

So how are you doing with the nuclear equations? Feeling better about them now that you know what side of the arrow to put the particle on? Also, make sure you memorize the nuclear symbols for alpha particles, beta particles (electrons), positrons, neutrons, and protons – those are just as important as the arrow!

Great job today on our first look at half life! We’ll tackle them full force in class tomorrow. Bring your calculator! πŸ™‚

Hon Chemistry 1-17-19 Quantum Numbers

HON CHEMISTRY: Great job with quantum numbers today! Wow, it was a lot. Confused yet?

Don’t worry! Today you learned all the background information about quantum numbers, tomorrow we’ll put it all together and it will begin to make sense.
