Students engage in a lesson that is concerned with the concepts related to solution chemistry. They calculate the molar mass of various chemical compounds. Then students predict the anion ratio for ionic compounds. Students also write the proper chemical formula name and formula.
Don't you wish you had the time to type up a study guide for your chemistry class? With this resource, there is no need! A chart comparing the properties of metals and non-metals tops the handout, followed by notes on the reactivity series. Finally, you will find an overview of fossil fuels. Use this as an outline for your lecture or to give a copy to junior chemists as notes or a study guide.
If it doesn't bother you that bases are called alkalis on this lab sheet, it guides chemsitry learners through a comparison of acids and bases on buffered and unbuffered solutions. Materials, procedures, and analysis questions are clearly written. Add this to your hands-on inquiry activities for your chemistry class.
This is the first of several worksheets of this type on thermodynamics. Learners solve for specific heat, determine if reactions are endothermic or exothermic, write balanced equations, and determine enthalpy for different reactions. This resource is geared toward AP chemistry learners.
First, young chemists calculate the moles of material required for a solution of a specific concentration. Then they determine the exact mass of material. Once the computations are complete, they hit the lab to prepare the standard solution! That is all there is to this exercise. It is simple and straightforward, but a beneficial practice in solution preparation.
Students determine differences in concentrations. They have to state the problem they feel exists, consider possible solutions, and develop a plan to come up with for containers whose labels have fallen off. Students base this off the solubility of the solution and propose answers as to what they think is actually in the bottle.
Tenth graders research two ways to test the water quality near their home. For this chemistry lesson, 10th graders determine the short and long term effect of different substances on aquatic ecosystems. They conduct tests and write a conclusion based on experimental results.
The University of the State of New York has designed a series of exams to be given to high schoolers. This chemistry exam is one of the most comprehensive and well-written that you will ever find. It consists of 84 questions in a variety of styles, including multiple-choice, short answer, problem solving, interpretation of charts and graphs. The content covers every topic within the typical general chemistry curriculum.
In this chemistry in action worksheet, students read about sulphuric acid, the use of metals, the production of titanium and the detection of chemical elements and compounds. Students are given 8 statements about what they should know about each of these topics such as what is the process in making sulphuric acid, how is steel produced and how are metals extracted from the earth.
Three questions, requiring short answers, show that chemistry learners understand the concepts behind balancing chemical equations. Nine equations leave the coefficients to be filled in, and eleven reactions are described for learners to write as balanced equations. This is a comprehensive activity that provides the necessary repetitive practice in balancing chemical equations. This may be useful for a general chemistry course as well as the intended advanced placement course.
Teach your chemistry charges how to calculate amounts of metals produced during an electroplating process. This invaluable handout details the electroplating process and then provides three examples that you can work through with your class. Use it when you introduce the concepts of electroplating for the first time.
