Do not forget PS1 is due at the beginning of class!
I have got Wednesday, August 28th lecture digitized and up.
Check the QuickTime/Real link. I'll be adding the remaining lectures listed
over the break.
In PS1.3 if you go to the CRC or the Merck Index to find
the solubility of carbon tetrachloride you may need to look under methane,
tetrachloro to find it. Hexane should be under hexane, just watch out that
you have hexane and not hexane with some other elements. Ethyl alcohol is
also called ethanol or hydroxyethane.
Problem Set #2 is now available at the Problem Set link.
One of the students in CHEM 1314 has an HP48GX with the
Chemistry card and is interested in meeting any other students with this type
of calculator. Contact Dr. G. if you are interested.
The tutoring schedule is now available at the Tutoring link.
The TA's in red are CHEM 1314 TA's.
I just had a talk with the Director of the General Chemistry
Laboratories and it was agreed that ALL students must wear eye protection
in the laboratories. So all students, including HBL, must get eye protection.
I've got an initial version of a digital lecture on Wednesday,
August 23rd on the QuickTime/Real Lectures
link so check it out. Send me an email and let me know what happens or
if you have any problems. Welcome to the future!
Attention students in 1:30 pm lecture with laboratory sections
10 - 18. Be sure to print
out the laboratory for next week's laboratory. Students in the 3:30 pm
lecture with laboratories 19 - 27 will check-in and do InClass Exercise #2
beginning on Monday, August 28th.
Be sure to bring your textbook and a calculator to laboratory
Some new stuff to memorize
Tables 2.3 (p 67), 2.4 (p 69), 2.5 (p 69) and 2.7 (p 73).
I'll give you some tricks to make Tables 2.3 and 2.4 real easy to remember,
but Table 2.5 and 2.7 have to be memorized. I promise the first exam will
have some nomenclature questions.
I've listed some recommended problems from Chapters 1 and
2. The list can be found in the Problem Set link at the bottom of the page.
If you would like to practice and test your knowledge on
figures here is some software which will randomly generate questions.
There are more of these types of randomly generated questions at our Problem
Set link. Just scroll down the page a little to get to the link.
In order to post grade information (scores on problem sets,
laboratory's and exams) I need your permission. Go the SID#/Name link and
enter a number, name or combination unique to you. I will post grade information
using your SID# or SIDName. You do not HAVE to have an SID#/Name if you do
not want to. There are some additional questions that I would like you to
answer for some EXTRA CREDIT.
One of the more popular periodic tables on the web is at
http://www.shef.ac.uk/~chem/web-elements/. Check out if you need to find some physical properties for
any particular elements.
Start memorizing..avoid the rush!
Things to memorize;
Need some extra money? Love computers and like to do Web
stuff? Anyone looking for some parttime work writing HTML for a campus project?
Check with Dr. G or see Steve Hall in LSE208. You will need to have a resume
describing your work/computer experience.
I've generated a short Self-Test which has a few questions
to provide me with some feedback as to how much you might recall from your
past chemistry experience. The Self-Test has six questions. It is not graded,
I'd just like to get some information prior to Wednesday's class. Give it
a try, see what you can remember. Go to the Self-Test link in the left frame.
names and symbols of the first 20 elements and 20
the formula and phase of all of the elements in the periodic table;
the common prefixes for SI units;
