Lab 3A The Thickness of a thin sheet of Aluminum Foil:
Sample Lab Conclusion using the Claim/evidence/framework
- It was determined that the regular foil height was _ _. _ _ micrometers. The heavy duty foil height was _ _ . __ units.
- The foil thickness was determined indirectly (we were not able to measure the height of the foil using a ruler) . Rather, the density and the mass of the foil was used to solve for the foil volume. Volume is equal to the mass of the foil divided by the density of the foil. The foil mass was measured to 4 significant digits and 2 decimal places. The density of the foil was known to 3 significant digits and 2 decimal places. The precision of both the foil mass and density matched. Therefore the certainty of the volume is known to 2 decimal places. We measured the dimensions of the foil to determine the area.
- Error could be introduced in the measurement due to problems reading the rules accurately.
Sources of error include not being able to check our data with all the students in the class and reading the ruler to two decimal places.

- Block 8 – Quiz on Friday November 6, 2015
October Homework – 2015
October 19/20, 2014
Rules for naming covalent compounds:
Rules (please copy these out if you forget how to use the covalent rules).
1. The first element is named first, using the elements name.
2. Second element is named as an Anion (suffix “-ide”)
3. Prefixes are used to denote the number of atoms
4. “Mono” is not used to name the first element
Note: when the addition of the Greek prefix places two vowels adjacent to one another, the “a” (or the “o”) at the end of the Greek prefix is usually dropped; e.g., “nonaoxide” would be written as “nonoxide”, and “monooxide” would be written as “monoxide”. The “i” at the end of the prefixes “di-” and “tri-” are never dropped.
Please make sure that you are able to write the formulas for the Group I and Group II ionic compounds. Note that Group I and Group II have a fixed charge. Also note that ionic compounds have to be reduced.

- Pay special attention to the conclusion. List the specific finding and include a discussion of the sources of error (trouble reading burette, not reporting the correct mass for the given volume, using different mass balances for taking the mass of the liquids).
- Please review how to determine the slope of a best fit line if you are not sure how to calculate slope. Slope is a measure of how quickly the responding variable is changing in response to the manipulated variable. Rate of change in y compared to the rate of change of x.
