Hon Chemistry 1-11-18 Spectroscopy Lab, Part 2

HON CHEMISTRY: How’d you like playing with light?!? Here’s the intro to Part 2 of the lab.

Are you clear on how to turn in the lab report? Observations from Part 1 and the diffraction grating will be in two parts: 1) the written observation – answers to those four questions for BOTH types of light on notebook paper, and 2) your drawings of both kinds of light on card stock or heavy white paper, and then both drawings mounted together on one sheet of construction paper. Be sure to label everything.

Observations from Part 2 with the spectroscope will be answered on the actual lab sheets/packet. Be sure and read ahead so that you can double check to make sure you answered every single observation and question. We’ll finish the last part of the procedure the next time we have sun. Check the syllabus for the due date!

Chemistry 1-11-18 Structure of the Atom, Pt. 2

CHEMISTRY: I love our chapels this week and hearing from God’s Word – but it does make for short classes! Here’s the last of our discussion on how scientists discovered protons and neutrons. You know, in class yesterday and today I just gave you mostly one name to go with each, but don’t forget they work with other scientists to get the job done!!

Make sure you know the name of the scientists, the name of their experiments, be able to draw a diagram of their experiment, and describe how they interpreted the experimental results that led to their discoveries.

Don’t forget about these video clips we watched in class, they’ll help you review the different experiment that the guys like Thompson and Rutherford did. Here’s another one on The Discovery of the Nucleus. And again – do you think there could be anything smaller than protons, neutrons, and electrons? Hmmmmm……

Physics 1-11-18 Collisions Problems with Energy & More!

PHYSICS: Great job on the problems so far!! Here’s the preview from today – dart in the block of wood, bird on the swing, car crash, and a start on the billiard balls. This cute little bird isn’t on a swing, but he is one I came beak to nose with on a mission trip to Costa Rica!

On to a more practical application tomorrow. Speaking of which, any questions? Light bulb? Questions??
