The following homework has been assigned (2018/2019)

September Homework – 2018

Week 5:  October 1-5, 2018

Block 7 – Open Note Lab Quiz on Lab 3A “The Thickness of a Thin Piece of Aluminum Foil”. Please review the lab and be able to determine the thickness of Aluminum using indirect methods.  Some of the indirect methods that we explored while completing this lab included the use of:

  • Density:  Density can be used to determine the volume of your thin piece of aluminum foil
  • volume:   can be used to determine the height of the foil.  Solve for h in the density formula; h= height=thickness
  • Block 2:   Write Quiz #2 Learning Standard #1:  Quiz 1:  Conversion factors/treating units like variables

    Learning Standard #2:  Quiz 2:  Identifying and counting significant figures; doing addition/subtraction/multiplication/division with measured numbers

    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.

    Prefixnumber indicatedmono-1di-2tri-3tetra-4penta-5hexa-6hepta-7octa-8nona-9deca-10

    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.
