Review Quiz 1 Study Guide. Expect 50% of Final to be material from Quiz 1.
Review web notes, examples etc. You are responsible for the materials in your text pp 1-76 (but not Sound)
Terms (be able to define/describe): Define/describe: solution, salt, solvent, solute, saturated solution, phase change, boiling, solid, boiling point (bp), heat of vaporization/condensation, melting point (mp), heat of melting/solidification, Arrhenius acid/base model, "empirical" acid/base definition, heating/cooling curve.
Chemical Reactions: Be able to balance simple equations by inspection such as we have done in class. Remember the important considerations of conservation of mass. (see Lecture 7) For chemical equations, conservation of mass means that we must have the same numbers of the same kinds of atoms on both side of the equation.
Be able to predict the products and balance simple fuel oxidation reactions (burning). (e.g. CH4 + 2 O2 -> CO2 + 2 H2O)
Predict the charges of the ions of the elements in Groups IA, IIA, VIA, and VIIA. Explain why they have these charges (stable octets, have outer electron structure of nearest Noble gas).
Acids & Bases: What are acids? Bases? What are the charecters of acids and bases. Hydrogen ion, proton, hydroxide ion. Define/describe: Arrhenius acid model, Empirical model, hydronium ion (H3O+), strong acid/base (100% dissociated when < 1M), weak acid/base (less than 100% dissociated when < 1M),
Note that for "organic" acids (acids with carbon) we will see a common element = -COOH, a carbon with two oxygens, one of which has a hydrogen attached. The hydrogen on the oxygen is then the acidic hydrogen. (Alcohol, with a -COH is not acidic.)
pH and pH scale (Fig 1.20, p 32 in text)
How old is the Earth? How long ago did the precambrian end? What marks the end of the precambrian and the beginning of the currrent Eon? (The modern fossil record of multicellular animals with hard parts began with the Cambrian.) What are some of the major occurances in the Precambrian?
What usually happens to mark the end of a major geological period (e.g. the end of the Cambrian, or the Cretaceous).
Note that Precambrian occurances are listed in notes and Phanerozoic times are summarised on HSU NHM exhibits website.
Look at three different age systems:
Earth and Solar System
Be able to determine age of sample given amount decayed and half-life as done in class (Lecture 11).
How are chemicasl reaction rates effected by temperature? concentration? Explain why each relationship should be true.
Gases are characterized by four properties
Describe/define Bolye's Law and Charles Law. How does gas volume change with pressure? with temperature?
How did the study of gases result in the concept of "absolute zero"?
