Chem 104 Day 2 Notes January 25 2016 measurement lab and safety lab due and print out Wednesday Labs due in locker the Monday following the lab Math and Chemistry Scienti c notation Method to write very large or small numbers in an easy to use way Made of a number between 1 and 10 multiplied by 10 to some power The exponent tells how many places you moved the decimal point to change the number to a value between 1 and 10 The sign of the exponent tells what direction you moved the decimal point negative means the original value is less than one and positive means the original value is greater than 1 Ex 5321000 532 x10quot7 Which way does it move If the number is a decimal the EX 000049 49 XloA394 exponent will be negative Ex 532 x 10quot7 11 x 10quot11 If the number is a whole 49 x 10quot4 number the exponent will be nnciHuo EX 532X 10quot749X10quot4 2607X10quot3 2607 X10quot4 Ex 46 x10quot3 32x10quot5 Exponents MUST BE THE 046x10quot5 32x10quot5 SAME The more numbersdecimal places the ver is Signi cant gures Always make measurements to as mar it will allow with the last digit being estimate Can only estimate on the last digit Your calculations can be no more accurate than your least accurate number Always go to all the numbers you know and then one more which you guess on Exact numbers are ones that have unlimited accuracy and there is not an uncertain last digit ie you gave the patient 3 tablets To determine the number of dig gs all nonzero numbers are signi cant Ex 0010043900 a b cd ef Leading zeros a amp b NEVER signi cant Trapped zeros c amp d ALWAYS signi cant only thing that can trap a zero are two nonzero numbers Trailing zeros e amp f aways signi cant IF there is a written decimal point Chem 104 Day 2 Notes January 25 2016 5000 4 sig g EXCLUSION 10 1 sig g 10 pennies unlimited if you counted that is a de nite number and there can be as many sig gs as you need Ex 5000 estimated number INSTEAD write 500 x10quot3 Go to SN when you need a certain number for sig gs but place holders are in the way Ex 140021 6 sig gs EX 1400210 7 sig gs EX 000042 3 sig gs Ex 0 401 4 sig gs EX 1 3 00 3 sig gs 10300 5 sig gs Rounding Look at the number immediately to the right of the identi ed value If that number is 4 or less you merely drop them may need to replace with zeros to hold the decimal place If the number is 5 or more you add one to the rounding place value number EX 13381 140 5 or more round up 5 or less round down Ex 17842 178 Ex 143 761 1 lCE 97 you need every same position to round to Ex 439 x 19 x10 5 because that is the number the smallest one has 837x10quot2 Factor label method for unit conversions write the unit you want to change Ex Fred the snail can slither 4 inper min 4in x 1 ft x 1mie 000006313 6313x10quot105 mi x 60min

Characteristics like color taste smell melting point boiling point state of matter shapedens y Changes that occur that do not change the identity of the material are called physical changes boiling
