Hon Chemistry 1-10-24 Double Replacement & Combustion Reactions

HON CHEMISTRY: We had to go fast, but do you realize what we did? We finished all 17 types of reactions today! We’ll practice them tomorrow since we had to go so fast today. Also, no audio on today’s recording, so I’m posting a vodcast from last year.

Careful when you work with any of these! For all single replacement reactions and reactions involving forming or decomposing oxide, be sure and refer to the Activity Series. Yes, you do get to memorize the Activity Series for the test – for the big test, not for the coming up quiz!

Are you working on memorizing all 17 types of reactions?! But don’t just memorize them. Make sure you can apply them as well. When you start to work any equation, first determine what type of reaction it is, then figure out what rule applies and follow it to determine the products. I believe in you! You can do it!! (and yes, I realize I am repeating myself, but I do and you can!)

Chemistry 1-10-24 Empirical Formulas

CHEMISTRY: Isn’t it awesome that God has given us the ability to understand and use the world around us – even things we can’t see. Great job on applying the laws that we’ll need to use to find empirical formulas.

Let’s crank it up a notch tomorrow! 🙂

Physics 1-10-24 Collisions Problems with Energy & Bouncing

PHYSICS: Great job on the problems so far!! Here’s our look how kinetic and potential energy get involved – dart in the block of wood and the bird on the swing. 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!

What about even more practical applications? Hmmmm…..
