  • I've added some suggested problems from Chapter 16 at the Problem Set link. Scroll to the bottom of that page.
  • In PS8.6c the reference to concentration of A or [A] should be changed to concentration of C and [C].
  • We will have class on Monday, April 3, 2001. Although I must be in San Diego at the national meeting of the American Chemical Society, Dr. Rockley will be here to cover my class.
  • Help Session on Wednesday, March 28, 2001 at 5:30 pm in PS141. We are meeting a little earlier in the evening for the Help Session this week to accommodate a talk by Baxter Black at 7:00 pm.
  • PS8 is available. I'll distribute it in class on Friday.
  • Be sure to get this weeks laboratory experiment. Go to the Laboratory link or the course syllabus.
  • Current grades are posted at the grades link.
  • Exams are scored. High was a 94. There was a tie between two students. Sarah Matousek and a repeat offender Chris Williams. WAY TO GO! Class average was a few points down from our first exam at 59.8...60. Overall class average is 69.
  • The TA's e-mail addresses are;
  • Nellie Bruce:

  • Be sure to bring your textbook and a calculator to laboratory the first week of classes. Yes, the CHEM 1515 laboratory does meet this week (January 16 - 19). (See the CHEM 1515 Syllabus)
  • Sitting around with nothing to do? We are going to begin lecture on Wednesday, January 17th discussing Chapter 11 in Silberberg. I recommend you review Chapters 9 and 10 before class. In particular, refresh your recall of drawing Lewis structures, the concept of electronegativity, ionic and covalent bonds, bond polarity, molecular polarity, molecular shape (in particular central atoms with 2, 3 and 4 groups of electrons). Check out lecture notes from CHEM 1314. In particular look at;
  • Lecture Notes for Friday, November 17, 2000 and Monday, November 20, 2000: Ionic compounds.

    Lecture Notes for Monday, November 20, 2000: Covalent compounds and electronegativity.

    Lecture Notes for Monday, November 27, 2000: Lewis structures.

    Lecture Notes for Wednesday, December 6, 2000: Valence Shell Electron-Pair Repulsion.
