Hon Chemistry 12-5-17 Artificial Transmutations & Fission

HON CHEMISTRY: Wow! We made artificial elements! Well, on paper at least 😉

So you can take something that’s not radioactive and make it radioactive? Here’s the lecture on the uses of radioactive isotopes from Tuesday. We’ll finish fission and talk about fusion tomorrow.

Help session tomorrow, Wednesday, morning, 7:20ish A.M.

Chemistry 1-11-12 Fission & Fusion

CHEMISTRY: Hey guys! Here’s the lecture from today – fission and fusion, and the end of chapter 21! Have you started studying? Be careful and don’t take the test for granted!

Make sure you practice half-life problems and nuclear equations. Also, make sure you’ve memorize the nuclear symbols for alpha particles, beta particles, positrons, neutrons, and protons. And then there are tons of notes on the conceptual stuff. Properties of radioactivity, people, types of radioactive decay, applications of radioactivity, definitions, definitions, and definitions!

By the way, did u get the notice about the help session tomorrow morning – 7:15ish A.M. Practice everything! And did I mention, PRACTICE!! I’ll be praying for you!

Hon Chemistry 12-7-11 Fission & Fusion

HON CHEMISTRY: Good luck studying for the laaaaaaaaaast chapter test of the year! Here’s the lecture from today – fission and fusion. Be careful and don’t take the test for granted. It will cover the beginning part of chapter 3 (through average atomic mass), chapter 21, and you will also have a set of chemical formulas to write and name.

For chapter 3, check out the Chapter 3 Study Suggestions sheet here and now on Edline (make sure you get the one labelled 2011 – and thanks to Katherine for letting me know it wasn’t showing up!).

For chapter 21, make sure you practice half-life problems and nuclear equations. Also, make sure you’ve memorize the nuclear symbols for alpha particles, beta particles, positrons, neutrons, and protons. And then there are tons of notes on the conceptual stuff. Properties of radioactivity, people, types of radioactive decay, applications of radioactivity, definitions, definitions, and definitions!

By the way, did u get the notice about the help session tomorrow morning – 7:15ish A.M. Practice everything! And did I mention, PRACTICE!! I’ll be praying for you!
