Objectives: 1. Identify the 5 areas of chemistry 2. Relate pure chemistry to applied chemistry 3. Identify reasons to study chemistry 4. Define chemistry
Materials: Tablespoon, cornstarch, small bowl, water Think About it… 1. What happened when you slowly pushed your finger or fist into the mixture? 2. What happened when you jabbed your finger or fist into the mixture? 3. What happened when you squeezed the ball? When you released the ball? 4. What factor seems to determine whether the mixture behaves as like a solid or a liquid?
A. Def – the study of the composition of matter and the changes that matter undergoes. 1. Important? B. Areas of Chemistry 1. Organic Chemistry 2. Inorganic Chemistry 3. Biochemistry 4. Analytical Chemistry 5. Physical Chemistry
Pure Applied pursuit of chemical knowledge pure leads to applied application of research towards a goal Examples: Nylon and Aspirin (pg. 9) **Technology – applied science that allows humans to something quicker or easier**
D. Why study Chemistry? 1. Explaining the natural world 2. Preparing for a career 3. Being an informed citizen
1. Explain why chemistry affects all aspects of life and why it is important to study. 2. List the 5 traditional areas of chemistry. 3. In your own words describe the relationship between pure and applied chemistry. 4. List 3 reasons for studying chemistry. 5. Would a geologist ask a biochemist to help identify the minerals in a rock? Explain your answer.
