General Chemistry B Week One: 8/29 - 9/4 Introduction to Chemistry: 1. What is chemistry? a. Investigating the composition, structure, properties, and the change of matter. i. Matter: 1. has mass and takes up space 2. is the physical “stuff” of the universe 2. Fundamental Building Blocks of Matter a. Atom i. Protons ii. Neutrons iii. Electrons 3. States of Matter a. Gas/Vapor b. Liquid c. Solid 4. Physical vs. Chemical a. Color – physical b. Flammability - Chemical c. Melting Point – Physical d. Boiling Point – Physical e. Burning Gas – Chemical 5. Units of Measure a. Metric System i. Kelvin (temp) 1. C (Celsius) x 273 = Kelvin Experimental Error and Data Handling: 1. Significant Figures: a. Minimum number of digits needed to write a given value without the loss of accuracy i. Ex. .006302 (4 sig. fig.) > Zeros at the beginning of the number are never significant ii. Ex. .2330300 (5 sig. fig.) > Zeros between nonzero digits are always significant iii. Ex. 233030 .0 (7 sig. fig.) > Zeros at the end of the number are significant if the number contains a decimal point b. Adding and Subtracting: i. Make sure all numbers are using the same number of significant figures ii. Ex. (1.25 x 10 ) (2.48 x 10 ) (1.23 x 10 ) ® 4 4 4 (12.5 x 10 ) (2.48 x 10 ) (1.23 x 10 ) c. **If a number is exactly even (#5), round it to the nearest even digit** d. Multiplication and Division: i. Uniform number of significant digits // lowest significant figure ii. Ex. (3.26 x 10 ) (1.78) = (5.8 x 10 ) 2. Dimensional Analysis a. Science of Conversation i. Ex. 5k = 3.1 mi run ii. Ex. How old are you after a billion seconds? 1 ???? 10 ????????????⬚ 1 ???????????? 1 ℎ????. 1 ???????????? 1 ???????? 365 ???????????? = 31.7 yr 1 60 ???????????? 60 ???????????? 24 ℎ????.
