Hon Chemistry Half-Life Simulation Lab

HON CHEMISTRY: Hey guys – this is where honors chemistry will post 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.

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 submit as a PDF to Google Drive and TurnItIn.com – 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 2-24-21 Half Life

HON CHEMISTRY: So what do you figure is the half-life of a banana? But I digress…. Here’s the lecture for Wednesday on half-life problems.

Have fun with the half-life simulation lab! Be sure and post your data in the Half Life Lab web post by the time listed on the syllabus. Don’t forget to include pics and your graph! The lab report is to be submitted as a PDF 2X by the due date listed on the syllabus. πŸ™‚

Physics 2-24-21 Pascal’s Law

PHYSICS: Did you realize that fluids could produce that much force? Make’s you wonder at the awesome way God designed those beautiful under water sea creatures to withstand so much pressure, doesn’t it? This little creature is a lionfish from the waters of Lembeh, Indonesia.

Here’s the lecture on Pascal’s law and hydraulics and the like.

Chemistry 2-24-21 Making Gases Pre-Lab

CHEMISTRY: Here’s our very short look at the positive tests for carbon dioxide, oxygen, and hydrogen gases for the experiment: Making and Testing for Gases. If you were absent on Wednesday, be sure and watch this vodcast – it’s required before you can do the lab. Make sure you have shown me the three balanced equations you’ll need for the experiment. I think you’ll have lots of fun with this one. πŸ™‚
