student, Justin Raptor, has found another typo/error in PS3. PS3.6a the percentage
of carbon and oxygen are reversed. The problem should read...
A typo has been discovered in PS3.10d change sodium in 'sodium
nitrate' to potassium nitrate and you will be able to do that problem correctly.
Here is the
video from last night's Help Session.
I did several problems like the problems in PS2 so you may find it useful
as you work the last few problems today.
Here is an
example of just one of the talents
of Robert Sleezer, one of our CHEM 1314 student. If you have a skill that
needs to be shared with the world on video, see dr. g.

is a little tight on thursday as I have a visitor from Norman here to work
on a project. I will be available before 10:00 am and after 3:30 pm.
If you have
not found it yet there is a sample exam at the Exams link. Will I post answers
to the exam...probably not. I always worry that students depend too much on
the answers and sometimes convince themselve, after looking at the answer
that a particular problem is easy. When in fact it is still not understood.
Work the problems check with other students int he class to see if you agree.
If you do not drop by and see me.
I passed out PS3 today in class. Get you copy at the Problem
Set link if you did not get a copy today.
there is a typo terafluoride should be tetrafluoride.
HELP SESSION is Monday, September 11th, 8:00 p.m. in PS141 be there or be
I've listed the room each section will take their exams this
semester at the Exams link. Check it out.
If you arrive late to the exam because you get lost and can not find the correct
room I am under no oligation to give you the same amount of time to do the
exam as those students who arrived on time. (Not that this will be a problem!)
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.
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 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.
The tutoring schedule is now available at the Tutoring link.
The TA's in red are CHEM 1314 TA's.
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!
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;
