It is when we add the "human element", i.e. you and me, that chemistry becomes interesting.And just like that, the laws of chemistry change. A world that includes the Human Element, along with hydrogen, oxygen and other elements, is a very different world indeed. Suddenly, chemistry is put to work solving human problems. Bonds are formed between aspirations and commitments. And the energy released from reactions fuels a boundless spirit that will make the planet a safer, cleaner, more comfortable place for generations to come. A world that welcomes change is about to meet the element of change: the Human Element.By itself, a human body is worth very little (perhaps $5.00 as elements). When we look at the incredible enzymes and hormones in the body we can see we are worth ~millions of dollars.Fr87Ra88Rf104Db105Sg106Bh107Hs108Mt1097WLa57Ce58Pr59Nd60Pm61Sm62Eu63Gd64Tb65Dy66Ho67Er68Tm69Yb70Lu71Ac89Th90Pa91U92Np93Pu94Am95Cm96Bk97Cf98Es99Fm100Md101No102Lr1035

9The Six Levels of Thought EvaluationThe Six Levels of ThoughtSynthesisAnalysis“Success is a journey, not a destination.”-Ben SweetlandApplication“Successful students make mistakes,but they don’t quit. They learn from them.”-Ralph BurnsOur goal is to be able to do synthesis and evaluation of data. We need to begin with simple fact and knowledge recall and build our way up the cognitive ladder.This requires dedication, memorization, problem-solving and hard work. You will fail at times and must not give up - continue learning and questioning your entire life.Do you think there are "good chemicals" and "bad chemicals"? If so, how do they differ?Chemicals are not "good" or "evil". How we use them determines that.e.g. water to a man that is dehydrating in a desert is good while holding someone under water for too long is evil (drowning them).Comprehension“Success consist of a series oflittle daily efforts.”-Marie McCuilloughKnowledge9

I don’t plan to be a chemist when I grow up!”My intention is not to make you into a chemist in one year. I want to explain some of the concepts fundamental to chemistry. This will help to to learn about the world around you – and may even help you later in life. In learning chemistry, you will be required to do many things (listed on the slide). These are skills that you must use in the ‘real-world’ everyday. Your problem solving, math and organizational skills will improve by studying chemistry.Chemistry will develop ALL of these skills in YOU!10
11Dual PerceptionsYour experience of learning chemistry maybe somewhat like looking at this picture that tests your perspective.You see either two faces looking at each other or a vase.Sometimes your perception may be that chemistry is challenging, while a short time later your attitude may be that chemistry is easy and fun.You walk into this class having heard stories about it from your friends, siblings or parents that may be similar or different to what you actually experience in the class.They may have had a poor experience in high school chemistry and make you nervous about the class: or they may have had a fantastic experience and you are thrilled to be in my chemistry class.11

13Stack of BlocksThis model appear to have three arms. Yet, we know it would be impossible to create an actual object like this picture. Models have limitations - as by their general nature, models are simplifications of complex situations. Yet it is in this simplification that we gain understanding. We need to be careful to not over-simplify and then apply the oversimplification to the real world.13

18A Colorful Demonstration: The Remsen Reaction Click to seeVIDEOIra Remson ( ) is renowned as one of the most influential American chemists and educators in the 19th century.Demonstration can be found atMetallic Copper + Concentrated Nitric Acid I adapted this lecture experiment from the "Coin-Operated Reaction" developed by Ron Perkins. I have made video records of a few lecture demonstrations, not to replace doing them in class, but rather so students can go back and review the experiments later in the year. I wanted an interesting system with which to make observations on the first day of class. I also wanted to give students an opportunity to explain what they saw in a logical manner. This system is rich with ideas such as gas laws, air pressure, complex ions, oxidizing acids, oxidation reduction, and gas solubility in water. What You Do...To a 500 mL Florence flask, add about 50 mL of concentrated nitric acid. Place a coil of copper wire into the acid and stopper with a one-holed rubber stopper fitted with a long tube. The end of the tube is placed into a large container filled with water. (I use a plastic aquarium.) As soon as the CuO contacts the HNO3(conc) the red-brown NO2(g) forms.What You See...Many changes occur during this demonstration. When the copper wire (or use two pre-1982 pennies) is added to the colorless nitric acid, the solution turns green and a large amount of red-brown gas is formed. The air being displaced by the gas formation can be seen bubbling through the water. The flask gets VERY warm. When enough gas is formed, it bubbles through the water (keep the liquid stirred so most of it will dissolve. The gas that makes it to the top is noxious. When the water siphons back into the flask, the blue Cu(H2O)42+ forms.Later...The gas in the flask begins to cool and therefore contracts. (I am reading my Ira Remsen story and allow students to notice the change.) As the pressure inside the flask decreases, the outside air pressure begins to push the water back toward the original flask. In addition, the red-brown gas dissolves in the water. Eventually, the water rushes into the flask, the solution turns characteristic blue, and the red-brown gas disappears as it is dissolved.The Set Up...Equipment:500 mL Florence flaskring standlarge ring placed below the flasksmall ring that fits over the neck of the flaskone-hole rubber stopper60 cm glass tubinglarge container of waterThe glass tube is bent in such a way as to connect the top of the flask with the bottom of the water container. The water in the container can be stirred by hand or with a magnetic stirrer. It needs to be stirred, however, or else the NO2 gas collects above the liquid (as it did when I took this picture...whew!).The Chemistry...Oxidation of copper metal with a strong oxidizing agent, conc. nitric acid.In a classic experiment, copper metal is turned into copper (II) ion while the nitrogen (V) in the nitrate ion becomes nitrogen (IV) in the nitrogen dioxide gas.Charles' LawAs the temperature from the reaction warms the gas, it expands. Later, as it cools, the gas contracts.Nonmetal oxides are acid anhydrides (also link to acid rain)Although the nitrogen dioxide gas is noxious and toxic, it dissolves readily in water and make the solution acidic. This can be shown by adding a little indicator to the water and making the water slightly basic before the copper is added to the acid.Air pressureAs the pressure in the flask is decreased as it cools, the outside pressure pushes the water up the tubing toward the flask. The nitrogen dioxide gas is not pulling the water in.Descriptive chemistry--copper solutions are green and blueThe colored solutions come from complexes of copper (II) ion in solution. Aqueous copper ion is blue, Cu(H2O)42+ The green must be copper surrounded by nitrates(?)Discussion...THE CHEMISTRY LABORATORY: A LESSON IN SAFETYAbout 100 years ago, the Chairperson of the Chemistry Department at Johns Hopkins University, and one of the pioneers of chemical education in America, Ira Remsen, wrote the following: (During this demonstration I read the reminiscence by Ira Remson quoted in Bassam Shakhashiri's demonstration book.)While reading a textbook of chemistry I came upon the statement, "nitric acid acts upon copper." I was getting tired of reading such absurd stuff and I was determined to see what this meant. Copper was more or less familiar to me, for copper cents were then in use. I had seen a bottle marked nitric acid on a table in the doctor's office where I was then "doing time." I did not know its peculiarities, but the spirit of adventure was upon me. Having nitric acid and copper, I had only to learn what the words "act upon" meant. The statement "nitric acid acts upon copper" would be more than mere words.All was still. In the interest of knowledge I was even willing to sacrifice one of the few copper cents then in my possession. I put one of them on the table, opened the bottle marked nitric acid, poured some of the liquid on the copper and prepared to make an observation. But what was this wonderful thing which I beheld? The cent was already changed and it was no small change either. A green-blue liquid foamed and fumed over the cent and over the table. The air in the neighborhood of the performance became colored dark red. A great colored cloud arose. This was disagreeable and suffocating. How should I stop this?I tried to get rid of the objectionable mess by picking it up and throwing it out of the window. I learned another fact. Nitric acid not only acts upon copper, but it acts upon fingers. The pain led to another unpremeditated experiment. I drew my fingers across my trousers and another fact was discovered. Nitric acid acts upon trousers. Taking everything into consideration, that was the most impressive experiment and relatively probably the most costly experiment I have ever performed... It was a revelation to me. It resulted in a desire on my part to learn more about that remarkable kind of action. Plainly, the only way to learn about it was to see its results, to experiment, to work in a laboratory.The description above is very amusing and expresses an enthusiasm for chemistry that we all should strive for. Ira Remsen also recognized the vital importance of the laboratory experience in chemistry. However, he was very fortunate that this particular experiment did not have dire consequences. Experiments should never be conducted using the methods described. List all the violations of good safety practice in the experiment described by Ira Remsen and suggest some safer approaches to finding out what was meant by the words "acts upon".Safety and Disposal...The solution is highly acidic. I pour it out into a large beaker or battery jar and add excess sodium carbonate. The carbon dioxide bubbles indicate neutralization and the resulting copper carbonate precipitate is filtered, placed in a baggie and thrown away. The neutralized filtrate can be disposed of as you would any simple salt solution. Procedures may vary from location to location.References: This demonstration is based on one shown by Ron Perkins called the "Coin Operated Demonstration" Shakhishiri, B.Z.

24Government Regulation of Chemicals The government regulates chemicals to reducethe risk to the…ConsumerFDA, USDA, Consumer Product Safety CommissionWorkerGOVERNMENT REGULATION OF CHEMICALSThalidomide was a drug given to lessen the effects of morning sickness to pregnant woman in the 1960’s.It never was proven safe and effective (efficacy) to the Food and Drug Administration in the United States.Only two cases of birth defects, thalidomide related, were reported in the United States. The women who had the children with the truncated limb formation were “jet setters” and obtained the thalidomide over seas.Internet Access to the Center for Disease Control, CDC,and the Food and Drug Administration, FDAThere is a tremendous amount of trivial information on the Internet. It also provides a direct, quick connection to government agencies and other sources of hard factual information. This is an exercise in using the Internet to learn about the power of the Internet. Simultaneously, you will have an opportunity to learn what health agencies like the FDA and the CDC say about health risks and smoking.The Internet pages typically have interactive or “hot” buttons. The most common interactive spots are underlined text items. Sometimes there are images that are buttons. Usually they are identified with “Click here” messages. You can’t go wrong by clicking on an item to find out if is active. ONE CAUTION, there is a time delay between the time you click and the time when the system responds and connects you. You need some patience here. Computers have gotten faster, but people are asking the computer to do more. You probably already know you can’t rush the machines. This is a chance to surf the net. Go ahead; get your feet wet.THE CDC home page and the FDAPublic agencies like the Center for Disease Control, CDC, and the Food and Drug Administration, FDA, can be accessed through the Internet. The CDC page on tobacco risks can be reached by using the following uniform resource locator (URL). Your assignment is to open this page. The site will give you data to answer the questions on the report sheet.OVERVIEWYour are to find out what the CDC says about the number of deaths annually in the United States that are said to be caused by smoking.In addition, you are to open the active line that gives the Food and Drug Administration’s proposed regulations on tobacco by clicking on the underlined FDA entry. If you have trouble, you can use the following URL for the FDA site. Your are supposed to record your opinion of the FDA proposals on tobacco regulation and give a reason for your opinion.Name _____________________________________Hour _____ Date _________Use the following URL to answer these questions.What is the Center for Disease Control’s estimate of the number of deaths in the United States that are annually caused by tobacco? Does this seem like a large number to you? Why?Use the following URL to answer this question.What is your opinion of the regulations proposed by the FDA? Would you endorse these proposals? Explain.Give the URL for a interesting site you found while doing this exercise.What makes this site noteworthy?Internet Access to the Environmental Protection Agency, EPAHealth Risk: EPA Office of Air and Radiation, OARThe issue of health risk and air pollution concerns all of us. Frequently people assume that air pollution is only a problem in big cities like New York city or Los Angeles. It may come as a surprise, but even cities in the Rock Mountains have air pollution problems. The Environmental Protection Agency, EPA, provides some basic information about risks ar the URL given in this exercise.The EPA page on Air Pollution and Health RiskThe EPA page on Air Pollution and Health Risk can be reached using the following uniform resource locator (URL).You can find answers to the following questions at this URL.What are the attributes of risks that are classes as more serious and of greatest concern?What are the attributes of risks that are classes as less serious and of lesser concern?According to the EPA Health Risk is the probability, or chance that exposure to a hazardous substance will make you sick. What are the two factors that are used to estimate risk?What actions does the EPA recommend to reduce your exposure to hazards?OSHAEnvironmentEPAChemical Stewardship24
