What the Supervisor Provides Everything the student will need This may include: This may include:GlasswareReagentsBalances Hot plates ThermometersProbesMagnetsStirrers
How to prepare participants Make sure students read the directions and pay particular attention to the description of the event (The Competition) Have them do many experiments together Have them determine their individual strengths Divide (and conquer) tasks during competition Check each others work
How to prepare participants Get as many lab books from your chemistry teacher as possible & have students explore labs by topic and do the ones that appear consistently
Changes for 2011 1 new topic & 1 old topic: Oxidation/Reduction Oxidation/Reduction Aqueous Solutions Aqueous Solutions
Oxidation/Reduction Students must be able to write oxidation and reduction half reactions, assign oxidation numbers, balance redox reactions in neutral, acidic, and basic solutions, and calculate standard cell potentials using a table of standard reduction potentials.
Oxidation/Reduction Activities Use a sequence of redox reactions to construct an activity series Construct a simple voltaic cell and measure its potential Stoichiometry and electrochemical processes (such as electrochemical deposition) Construct simple electrolytic cells. At state and national levels, knowledge of fuel cells may be included At the state and national levels knowledge and application of the Nernst equation and common storage batteries may be included.
Oxidation/Reduction Activities Series of redox reactions Small pieces of metal have a drop of another metals ion put on them to see if there is a reaction or not Small pieces of metal have a drop of another metals ion put on them to see if there is a reaction or not Or a small piece of metal is dropped into a test tube containing another ions metal to see if there is a reaction or not. Or a small piece of metal is dropped into a test tube containing another ions metal to see if there is a reaction or not. Chlorine water is added to a solution of a halide and then hexane is added. Chlorine water is added to a solution of a halide and then hexane is added. A titration of an Iron(II) ion is done with a strong oxidizer such as permanganate or Cerium (IV) A titration of an Iron(II) ion is done with a strong oxidizer such as permanganate or Cerium (IV)
Oxidation/Reduction Activities Electrolysis of water Can be used as both a redox and aqueous solution activity. Can be used as both a redox and aqueous solution activity. Students can investigate not only the redox reaction involved in the production of hydrogen and oxygen from the water, but the resulting production of hydronium and hydroxide ions. Students can investigate not only the redox reaction involved in the production of hydrogen and oxygen from the water, but the resulting production of hydronium and hydroxide ions.
Oxidation/Reduction Activities Electrodeposition is a broad industrial term that can refer to: Electroplating Electroplating Electrocoating Electrocoating E-coating E-coating Cathodic electrodeposition Cathodic electrodeposition Electrophoretic coating Electrophoretic coating Electrophoretic painting Electrophoretic painting
Oxidation/Reduction Activities At the state and national levels the Nernst equation may be tested. Equation usually used at low concentrations. Equation usually used at low concentrations.
Aqueous Solutions Students will demonstrate an understanding of the principals and properties of aqueous solutions. They must be able to calculate solution concentrations given quantities of solute and solvent, and to calculate quantities of material required to produce a solution of specified concentration. Molarity, molality, mass percentage, and parts per million may be required. Students are also required to demonstrate an understanding of colligative properties. At the state and national levels, conversions between concentration units may be required.
Aqueous Activities Use the concept of density to experimentally determine the concentration of a solution. Determine solution concentration using a series of standard absorbencies and Beers Law. Use freezing point depression to determine the molar mass of a solute. Use titration to determine an unknown concentration. Identify and explain factors that effect solution formation. Construct a solubility curve. Determine whether a solution is saturated, unsaturated or supersaturated
