Beyond using ethers as the example of an aprotic solvent (as in most of the previous videos), Sal describes the molecule diethylether with its IUPAC name and goes into more detail about its properties. This video does assume your class will know the definition of ethers. Sal does not talk about the reasoning behind its category.
Introduce your chemistry novices to the oxygen-containing compounds. Viewers of this presentation will learn how to identify and name alcohols, phenols, thiols, and ethers. They will also learn that combustion and dehydration are reactions of alcohols. The diagrams of molecules in these compounds are clear and the overall appearance is bold and bright. Together these qualities make the PowerPoint both educational and pleasing to the eye.
These words are tough! Very advanced English language learners or native speakers will still be befuddled by some of these vocabulary words. For each of the six sentences provided, learners must choose the correct word to complete the sentence. Example words include quiescent, limpid, ethereal, and propitiations.
Every heard of Letheon? According to Wikipedia, Letheon was the name William T.G.Morton gave to ether so that he could patent the substance. Morton’s attempts are the subject of the passage used in this comprehension quiz. To correctly answer the four prompts, readers must engage in close reading and access the provided links to resource materials.
Twelve pages of text tells viewers about the physical properties and naming procedures for alcohols and ethers. A page is also dedicated to briefly describing phenols. This straightforward chemistry presentation comes to you as a PDF file. Use it as a note-taking guide for your charges when lecturing on these compounds.
Make a splash with this fluid dynamics simulator! Physics fanatics can adjust water jets and various obstacles to move free-flowing objects around the screen. It's a captivating virtual visualization of current flow!
Students observe examples of physical changes that can take place between the three states of matter and develop common sense and intuition in distinguishing between chemical and physical changes. They observe diagrams on the board from which they identify the one that is not a physical change and explain the difference between a physical and chemical change.
In this chemistry worksheet, learners determine the order of reactivity toward displacement in each of the series listed. Then they respond to several multiple choice questions as they relate to compounds and solutions. Students also identify various products from each of the sequence of reactions listed.
Each slide here details the different ways that an alcohol can be oxidized. Diagrams of different structures of molecules are shown & your class should be able to identify how they would change to an aldehyde or a ketone. Some interesting facts are given about the real-life effects of alcohol in the body and the resulting effects of aldehydes and ketones. Some questions are included, asking learners to figure the structure of the molecule formulas given, and how they would be changed.
How much will it cost to leave a car in the parking garage for three hours? Using this example, middle school math minds discover the definition of a function. They see that the number of hours serves as an input and that the cost serves as an output. They complete a data table and graph the values, deepening their understanding of functions. A straightforward learning exercise that will be a useful tool in introducing this foundational concept.
