Hon Chemistry 2-7-24 Intro to Atomic Theory

HON CHEMISTRY: So how do you feel about mixing chemistry and history? Here’s the intro we did on how we ended up with the atomic theory. Had you ever heard of Lavosier, Proust, and Dalton?

Pretty impressive little theory that Dalton came up with, huh? Were you surprised as you made comparisons with the Modern Atomic Theory? Could you now take it a step further and show connections between the three laws we discussed today and Dalton’s atomic theory?

Chemistry 2-7-24 More About the Activity Series & Single Replacement Reactions Pt 1

CHEMISTRY: Great job applying the activity series to synthesis and decomposition reactions! As you practice, go back and check the activity series and your notes on the activity series!

HW UPDATE: Add #28 to your homework. If you didn’t do #28, you can bring it to me tomorrow.

Also, good start with single replacement reactions. We’ll finish them tomorrow. Super important – ALWAYS check the activity series!!

We’ve done 11 or 12 so far – how are you doing on memorizing them?! Careful though, don’t just memorize. 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!!
