1
Problem Solving Steps

2
Read the Question! What do you want to know? What do you know? Are there any handy formulas? Which Formula? Do the Math Make sure the UNITS are correct

3
What do you want to Know? Read the question carefully, beware of distractors, Sometimes the question is in several steps, so it may be asking you several questions! – What are they?

4
What do you Know? In the question, it will give you certain information, Some information comes from outside (what you have learned, basic facts [atomic mass, gravitational force], or things you will have to look up. You might want to make a list of those things.. (some of those may be distractors!)

5
Are there any Handy Formula? There are often – in Physics and Chemistry – useful formulas!!! Make a list of the relevant ones for the problem. Have a list of all the formulas in your notebook!!!

6
Which Formula? Or do you have to modify it? If you memorize one basic one. eg. Molar Mass = g / Mole That means, algebraically you know: g = Moles x Molar Mass & Moles = g / Molar Mass

7
Do the Math Dimensional Analysis

8
UNITS!!!
