Chemistry 1-23-17 Applications of Radioactivity

CHEMISTRY: Radioactive isotopes all around! Did you ever dream there were so many applications of radioactivity? Thanks for the great job on adding to the lecture! 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 tomorrow. Have you checked out the Chapter 21 Stuff to Know & Study Suggestions sheet on Edline? Help session will be Wednesday morning, 7:20ish A.M.

IMPORTANT: Don’t forget about the Half Life lab! Data is due when? Where? check the syllabus for info!

Hon Chemistry 1-23-17 Chapter 4 Overview

HON CHEMISTRY: God bless as you study for the chapter 4 test! We had no audio today, so I’m posting an overview from last year.

Have you checked out the Chapter 4 Stuff to Know Sheet from Edline? Make sure you give yourself plenty of time to memorize the things you need to memorize so that you can apply them on the test. And practice, practice, practice, the problems and electron configurations. Did I mention that already?

What about applications for discussion? Photoelectric effect, spectroscopy, etc.? Another great idea for studying is to watch the videos that we watched in class – super helpful as you study for the test!! Here are some of them:
Spectrum of the Stars (overivew of the results of the spectroscopy lab you did, shows the connection between our lab on spectroscopy and how we can identify elements), Emission Spectrum of Hydrogen (how we use it to know about the energy levels in an atom), Quantum Mechanics (about the roles of Bohr, Schrodinger, Heisenberg), and also Animated Quantum Mechanics.

God bless you as you study! I’ll be praying for you!!

Hon Chemistry 1-19-17 Electron Configuration & Blocks of the Periodic Table

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 1-19-17 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? Scroll down to find the post for your class and for more information.

Help session TOMORROW, Friday, 7:20ish, if you’d like extra practice on nuclear equations and half life problems.

Physics 1-19-17 Chapter 6 Concept Review

PHYSICS: Here’s our short review of from today of some of the momentum concepts. God bless you as you study. Be sure and check out a momentum/collisions problems review from a previous year if you need some extra help with the problems.

God bless you as you study for your test. I’ll be praying for you!

4th Period Chem Half-Life Simulation Lab

Hey guys – this is where 4th 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 Monday, Jan. 23, by midnight. The lab report is due Saturday midnight, Jan. 28 – 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™‚

Chemistry 1-18-17 Radioactive Decay

CHEMISTRY: Today has been all about arrows for some reason! 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! Need extra help? Help session Friday morning, 7:20ish A.M.

Be sure and bring a calculator tomorrow – we’ll tackle half life problems! πŸ™‚
