Chemistry 8-31-21 Conversion Factor HW & the Big Donut Problem

CHEMISTRY: Lots of great practice today using conversion factors! How did you do on your homework? And what about the big donut problem? If you were absent, be sure and watch this vodcast to make sure you are doing the problems correctly. You must show correct work to get credit.

HOMEWORK UPDATE for Tuesday: Only do #13- 15 tonight for homework. For now omit #58 – 60. We’ll do scientific notation in class tomorrow and I’ll assign these again later – probably for Thursday night’s homework.

Were you able to think through the longer conversion factor problems? Remember, you’re not just trying to get an answer. Most importantly, you are learning to express a logical progression of thought – from one unit to another. Keep practicing until you can do it by yourself with no help!!
