Problem 15

Phosphorus occurs naturally in the form of fluorapatite, CaF2 3Ca3(PO4)2, where the dot indicates 1 part CaF2 to 3 parts Ca3(PO4)2. This mineral is reacted with an aqueous solution of sulfuric acid in the preparation of a fertilizer. The products are phosphoric acid, hydrogen fluoride, and gypsum, CaSO4 2H2O. Write and balance the chemical equation describing this process.

Chapter 2 Atoms and Elements 2.1 Imaging and Moving Individual Atoms  Scanning tunnel microscopy (STM) – A technique that can image (make a visual representation of), and even more, individual atoms & molecules. o Works by moving an extremely sharp electrode (a conductor through which electricity can enter or leave) over a surface and measuring the resulting tunneling current, the electrical current that flows between the tip of the electrode and the surface even though the two are no in physical contact.  Tunneling current is extremely sensitive to distance, making it possible to maintain a precise separation between the electrode tip and the surface by moving t
