Introduction to Chemistry Mrs. Cramer Michigan Center High School
Believe that life is worth living, and your belief will help create the fact. William James, 1842-1910 American Psychologist and Philospher Whether you believe you can do a thing or believe you can’t, you are right. Henry Ford, 1863-1947 American Car Manufacturer All through my life, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child. Marie Curie, 1867-1934 Polish-Born French Chemist Problems call forth our courage and our wisdom; indeed, they create our courage and our wisdom. it is only because of problems that we grow mentally and spiritually. It is through the pain of confronting and resolving problems that we learn. M. Scott Peck, b. 1936 American Psychiatrist and Writer Don’t be afraid to take a big step if one is indicated. You can’t cross a chasm in two small jumps. David Lloyd George, 1863-1945 British Prime Minister and Statesman

Classroom Guidelines: Adherence to the following guidelines will insure a safe and enjoyable year for everyone: Be courteous and respectful to your teacher and classmates. Come to class on-time and prepared to work. Follow ALL safety rules and procedures. Uphold high standards of effort and achievement. Nurtured Heart Check (reset) Warning/Change your behavior Reflection sheet Written reflection/Last warning Check Out Go in the hall until you are ready to refocus/ Automatic After School Detention Check Out to Patrick Removal to ISS Non Negotiables = Referral
Grading: Your semester average is 20% semester exam and 80% marking period grades. Your marking period grade is: Tests/Quizzes60% Activities/Class work/Labs/ Homework40% Final Grade 100% Each marking period, the two lowest Activity grades will be dropped.
Late Work: You should be prepared to turn in all assignments at the BEGINNING of class. Late work turned in within 24 hours will be evaluated and given a grade of 70%. Late work turned in after 24 hours will be evaluated and given a grade of 50%. All work for the marking period will be due for 50% credit by the Wednesday before the end of the marking period. Absences: If you come to school but miss class for any reason, you are expected to turn in all assignments to me or to my box in the MCHS office. If you are absent the day an assignment is due, you are expected to turn it in the next school day. All scheduled tests and quizzes are required to be taken on the assigned date regardless of previous absences during the week.
A cademic D ishonesty P olicy Academic integrity means that all work is done by the students. Any type of dishonesty in school work is not integrity. Dishonesty includes, but is not limited to: 1. Copying the work of another student 2. Using notes during tests and quizzes without permission 3. Copying and pasting from electronic media 4. Providing answers to others When academic dishonesty occurs: a. The student(s) will receive a ‘0’ for the assignment b. A second infraction will result in disciplinary action If a student is using the work of others all students involved will be given a “0”. If the assignment is not a science assignment, the work will be given to the appropriate teacher
Activity Corrections: Activity grades below 80% are eligible for correction. Activity corrections are due two days after the Activity is returned. Corrections should be made in a different color on the front and/or back of the Activity. Math problems should be reworked (all work must be shown). For all other questions, briefly explain why your original answer was wrong. You may regain up to half of the points lost with a maximum score of 80%.
Final Advice: This course is challenging, but you can succeed in this class if you follow these key steps: ØKeep up with your assignments. Falling behind is the kiss of death! ØAsk for help when you need it. Whether that means asking a question during class or coming in for tutoring, I am here to help you in any way I can! ØWork hard and use your brain! I work very hard for you, and I expect nothing less in return.

Safety: Critical Thinking and Applications In each of the following situations, write ‘yes’ if the proper safety procedures are being followed and ‘no’ if they are not. Then give reasons for your answer. Gina is thirsty. She rinses a beaker with water, refills it with water, and takes a drink. Bram notice that the electrical cord on his hotplate is frayed near the plug. He takes the hotplate to his teacher and asks for permission to use another one. The printed direction in the lab sheet tells a student to pour a small amount of hydrochloric acid into a beaker. Jamal puts on safety goggles before pouring the acid into the baker. It is rather warm in the laboratory. Anna slips off her shoes and walk barefoot to the sink to clean her glassware. While washing glassware, Mike splashes some water on Evan. To get even, Evan splashes him back. During an experiment, Lindsey decides to mix two chemicals that the lab procedure does not say to mix, because she is curious about what will happen.

A Description of a Burning Candle A photograph of a burning candle is shown 1 in the upper right corner. The candle is cylindrical 2 and has a diameter 3 of about 3 cm. The length of the candle was initially about 16 centimeters 4, and it changed slowly 5 during observation, decreasing about 1 cm in one hour 6. The candle is made of a translucent 7, white 8 solid 9 which has a slight odor 10 and no taste 11. It is soft enough to be scratched with the fingernail 12. There is a wick 13 which extends from top to bottom 14 of the candle along its central axis 15 and protrudes about 5 mm above the top of the candle 16. The wick is made of three strands of string braided together 17. A candle is lit by holding a source of flame close to the wick for a few seconds. Thereafter the source of flame can be removed and the flame sustains itself at the wick 18. The burning candle makes no sound 19. While burning, the body of the candle remains cool to the touch 20 except near the top. Within about 1.5 cm of the top the candle is warm 21 (but not hot) and sufficiently soft to mold easily 22. The flame flickers in response to air currents 23 and tends to become quite smoky while flickering 24. In the absence of air currents, the flame is of the form shown in the photograph, though it retains some movement at all times 25. The flame begins about 2 mm above the top of the candle 26, and at its base the flame has a blue tint 27. Immediately around the wick in a region about 2 mm wide and extending about 5 mm above the top of the wick 28 the flame is dark 29. This dark region is roughly conical in shape 30. Around this zone and extending about 1 cm above the dark zone is a region which emits yellow light 31, bright but not blinding 32. The flame has rather sharply defined sides 33 but a ragged top 34. The wick is white where it emerges from the candle 35, but from the base of the flame to the end of the wick 36 it is black, appearing burnt, except for the last 0,5 cm, where it glows red 37. The wick curls over about 3 mm from its end 38. As the candle becomes shorter, the wick shortens too, so as to extend roughly a constant length above the top of the candle 39. Heat is emitted by the flame 40, enough so that it becomes uncomfortable in 10 to 20 seconds if one holds his finger 10 cm to the side of the quiet flame 41 or 10 – 12 cm above the flame 42.

Warm Up: The Scientific Method You’ve been taught the scientific method in almost every science class you’ve had since 3 rd grade. Each time it varied just a little. Could you narrow the steps of the scientific method down to just 3 steps??? What would they be?
Warm Up Using a Scientific Approach What is the goal of scientific methods? Why are scientific models useful? Does every scientific method begin with an observation? Explain.
Guiding Questions Scientific explanations must meet certain criteria: they should be logical, respect the rules of evidence, be open to criticism, report methods and procedures, and make knowledge public. Scientific experiments are conducted after much thought about what may be causing the phenomena in order to isolate important factors. In order to isolate these factors careful planning, including addressing safety issues, must be taken into consideration before attempting experiments. In order to draw a valid conclusion from an experiment, all variables except for that which is being tested must be controlled. Measurements communicate not only a magnitude and the system of measurement (unit) but also information about the tool used to make the measurement through precision (significant figures) and uncertainty
Using the scientific method requires that one be a good observer. observationinference involves a judgment or assumption uses the five senses
“My mother the eye doctor” Observation or Inference? One player is holding a bat.The player holding the bat is talking.One of the teams is called the “Reds.” One player is wearing a catcher’s mask. One player is a catcher.Names are written on the uniforms.The players in the picture are on opposite teams.The adult is the umpire.The piece of paper is a note from the mother of the batter.The adult is holding a piece of paper.The mother of the batter is an optometrist or opthalmologist (an eye doctor).
The Skeptical Chemist Robert Boyle In “The Sceptical Chymist” scientific speculation Boyle stated that scientific speculation was worthless unless it was supported experimental evidence by experimental evidence. scientific method This principle led to the development of the scientific method. (1661)
Parts of the Scientific Method Identify an unknown. Make a hypothesishypothesis (a testable prediction). Experiment to testExperiment the hypothesis. Draw a valid conclusion.
A Scientific Experiment procedure the order of events in an experiment; the “recipe” Experiments must be controlled; they must have two set-ups that must differ by only one variable. The conclusion must be based on the data. variable any factor that could influence the result
Data Observations are also called data. There are two types of data. qualitative dataquantitative data descriptions; measurements; no numbersmust have numbers and UNITS

Graphs Warm Up 1.Name some ways in which scientists can organize data? 2.What does a given point represent on a line graph? 3.Bar, Pie and Line Graphs are each used for specific reasons. Describe what each graph would be used for or give an example. Keep all warm up on one piece of paper for the week. Turn in Friday.
Graphs Bar Graph –Used to display information collected by counting Pie Graph –Used to show how some fixed quantity is broken down into parts Line Graph –Used to show trends or continuous change
Bar Graph shows how many of something are in each category
Bar Graph Number of Students Chemistry Grades Descriptive title Legend Axis labeled (with units)
Line Graph shows continuous change Stock Price over Time
Elements of a “good” line graph axes labeled, with units use the available space title neat
How to read a graph Interpolate - read between data points What volume would the gas occupy at a temperature of 150 K? Extrapolate - read data beyond data points What volume would the gas occupy at a temperature of 260 K? Which do you have more confidence in? Why? (independent variable) (dependent variable) 7 L ~4 L
1. Preview Before answering any questions about the information in a graph, try to understand the basic elements of the graph: What type of graph is it? (e.g. pictograph, bar graph, line graph, scatter plot, circle graph) What does the title tell you about the information in the graph? Read the labels on each axis. What are the units for the scales? Read the legend (if there is one). 2. Identify (Read the Data) Some questions about data can be answered by stating a fact directly from the graph. To answer these types of questions, use the labels and scale on the horizontal and vertical axes to read or locate specific information on the graph.
3. Interpret The answers to some questions require that you interpret information by identifying relationships and trends within the graph. Compare two or more points on the graph to determine a relationship or trend. 4. Extrapolate Some questions about data in graphs ask you to extend, predict, or infer an answer using your own prior knowledge and experience. To read beyond the data is to draw conclusions from evidence in the graph. Identify your own knowledge and experience related to the question. Consider the evidence in the graph that supports your prediction or conclusion.
Scientific Notation warm up Why do scientists use scientific notation? What system of units do scientists use for measurements? How does the precision of measurements affect the precision of scientific calculations? List the SI units for mass, length, and temperature.

Precision The degree to which repeated measurements under unchanged conditions show the same results. Significant Figure (Also known as significant digits, and often shortened to sig figs) Those digits that carry meaning contributing to its precision. Save vocabulary till we cover sig figs. This is not homework (yet)
Precision The degree to which repeated measurements under unchanged conditions show the same results. Accuracy The degree to which repeated measurements under unchanged conditions show the correct (accepted) results. Chem Comm
Types of errors Systematic Instrument not ‘zeroed’ properly Reagents made at wrong concentration Random Temperature in room varies ‘wildly’ Person running test is not properly trained Errors in a single direction (high or low) Can be corrected by proper calibration or running controls Errors in any direction. Can’t be corrected. Can only be accounted for by using statistics.
Accuracy vs. Precision Random errors: reduce precision Good accuracy Good precision Poor accuracy Good precision Poor accuracy Poor precision Systematic errors: reduce accuracy (person)(instrument)
Precision Accuracy reproducibility check by repeating measurements poor precision results from poor technique correctness check by using a different method poor accuracy results from procedural or equipment flaws.
In terms of measurement Three students measure the room to be 10.2 m, 10.3 m and 10.4 m across. Were they precise? Were they accurate? How would you define them?
A chemist is asked to determine the concentration of a chemical dissolved in a solution. The chemist performs the experiment three times for good measure, and the concentration determined to be 1.74 M, (moles/liter), 1.73 M and 1.75 M. The average of these numbers is 1.74 M. But suppose the chemist is not a very good chemist and made the same mistake in all three experiments: the true concentration of the chemical in solution is 2.32 M. Was this experiment accurate and/or precise? Explain.

Percent Error = 1. Mrs. Cramer guessed she would get 5 hours of sleep, but she actually got 8. What was the percent error in her guess? Warm up
Uncertainty in Measurement A digit that must be estimated is called uncertain. A measurement always has some degree of uncertainty.

Significant figures (sig figs) How many numbers mean anything. When we measure something, we can (and do) always estimate between the smallest marks. 21345
The better marks the better we can estimate. Scientist always understand that the last number measured is actually an estimate. 21345 Significant figures (sig figs)
The measurements we write down tell us about the ruler we measure with The last digit is between the lines What is the smallest mark on the ruler that measures 142.13 cm? 141 142

140 cm? l Here there’s a problem is the zero significant or not? 10020015025050 100200
140 cm ? They needed a set of rules to decide which zeroes count. l All other numbers do count. 10020015025050 100200
Significant Figures The numbers reported in a measurement are limited by the measuring tool The numbers reported in a measurement are limited by the measuring tool Significant figures in a measurement include the known digits plus one estimated digit Significant figures in a measurement include the known digits plus one estimated digit
Counting Significant Figures RULE 1. All non-zero digits in a measured number are significant. Only a zero could indicate that rounding occurred. Number of Significant Figures 38.15 cm4 5.6 ft2 65.6 lb___ 122.55 m 122.55 m___
Sandwiched Zeros RULE 2. Zeros between nonzero numbers are significant. (They can not be rounded unless they are on an end of a number.) Number of Significant Figures 50.8 mm3 2001 min4 0.702 lb____ 0.00405 m 0.00405 m ____

A calculated answer must match the least precise measurement.A calculated answer must match the least precise measurement. Significant figures are needed for final answers fromSignificant figures are needed for final answers from 1) adding or subtracting 2) multiplying or dividing
Adding and Subtracting The answer has the same number of decimal places as the measurement with the fewest decimal places. 25.2 one decimal place + 1.34 two decimal places 26.54 26.54 answer 26.5 one decimal place
Multiplying and Dividing Round (or add zeros) to the calculated answer until you have the same number of significant figures as the measurement with the fewest significant figures.
Multiplication and Division For these problems, your answer will have the same number of significant digits as the value with the fewest number of significant digits. 608.3 x 3.45 b) 4.8 / 392 a) 3.45 has 3 sig. digits, so the answer will as well 608.3 x 3.45 = 2098.635 = 2.10 x 10 3 b) 4.8 has 2 sig. digits, so the answer will as well 4.8 / 392 = 0.012245 = 0.012 or 1.2 x 10 – 2
