Hon Chemistry 1-10-12 Hydrogen Emission Spectrum & Bohr Model

HON CHEMISTRY: I figured anybody who ditched his honeymoon to finalize his work on atomic theory deserved to have his picture on our website. (And, by the way, great job making like electrons today – way to role play!)

So, do you think he’s right – or wait, are they waves? What did you think of the animated version of the double slit experiment? Corny, I know, but it really has a ton a great, very accurate information. Let’s talk more Monday and see what you think then. By the way, I’ll put it in the Vodpod below, if you’d like to review it again.

Chemistry 12-1-11 Structure of the Atom

CHEMISTRY: Great job on using experimental results to form a conclusion! Here’s the lecture from Thursday on the discovery of electrons, the nucleus, and neutrons. Lots of stuff to learn, but make sure you just don’t learn facts – be able to apply the concepts.

Check out the videos in the VodPod collection below. You can find the cathode ray tube experiment, Rutherford’s gold foil experiment, and others. Be able to explain not only what they did in their experiments, but how Thompson and Rutherford used the experimental results to discover the electron, nucleus and protons. Cookie dough, yum! πŸ™‚

Hon Chemistry 11-16-11 Structure of the Atom

HON CHEMISTRY – Hey guys, Here’s the lecture from Thursday on how scientists began to determine the structure of the atom and the existence of subatomic particles. FYI – as we go on, 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. Wow, that’s a mouthful!

Don’t forget the videos in the Vodpod below! They will help a lot as you review the different scientists experiments. BTW – Do you think there could be anything smaller? Than an electron, I mean??

One last thing – remember that make-up labs are Thursday morning at 7:15 A.M. and Thursday afternoon at 3:30 P.M. πŸ™‚
