THE SCIENTIFIC METHOD


The Scientific Method is a way to ask and answer questions about the world in a logical way. There are various versions of the scientific method floating around out there, but I think these six steps are classics. Ask a question, make observations, form a hypothesis, design and conduct an experiment, analyze your data, and draw a conclusion. The steps can be repeated as needed, and using the scientific method is a great way to learn about the world!

THE STATES OF MATTER 
HEATING CURVE OF WATER 

1)      What is temperature?

Temperature is a measure of the average energy of molecular motion in a substance.

2)      Why is the temperature going up?

. Higher temperatures mean that the molecules are moving, vibrating and rotating with more energy. They have higher kinetic energy.

3)       Why did the temperature remain constant around 100°C and creates a plateau?

The water is boiling and the particles are changing state from liquid to a gas. Essentially the temperature measured refers to the water (liquid state) molecules’ kinetic energy and not of the water vapor. Energy continuous to be added but the temperature stays the same because the water vapor’s kinetic energy is not taken into consideration.

4)       What is happening to the kinetic energy of the molecules as temperature rises?

As the temperature rises molecules move much for rapidly causing the kinetic energy to rise

5)       What would happen to the kinetic energy of the molecules if the temperature would be lowered?

If the temperature is lowered the particles will move slower causing the kinetic energy to lower.

6)      How does this lab relate to kinetic molecular theory?

*  MOL CONCEPT

The mole is the unit of measurement in the International System of Units (SI) for amount of substance.
1 mole in quantity, that implies that the matter under consideration contains exactly 6.022 * 1023 number of particles (atoms, molecules, ions, electrons or any other elementary entities).
Though mole is defined as a number but it’s not limited to that in calculations. It has various other equivalent definitions with the only difference from each other being that they define mole for different states of matter and at different conditions.

Top Reasons Why Students Fail Chemistry

Avoiding Failure in Chemistry

By

Are you taking a chemistry class? Are you worried you might not pass? Chemistry is a subject many students prefer to avoid, even if they have an interest in science, because of its reputation for lowering grade point averages. However, it isn't as bad as it seems, especially if you avoid these common mistakes.

1. Procrastinating

Never do today what you can put off until tomorrow, right? Wrong! The first few days in a chemistry class may be very easy and could lull you into a false sense of security. Don't put off doing homework or studying until halfway through the class. Mastering chemistry requires you to build concept upon concept. If you miss the basics, you'll get yourself into trouble. Pace yourself. Set aside a small segment of time each day for chemistry. It will help you to gain long-term mastery. Don't cram.

2. Insufficient Math Preparation

Don't go into chemistry until you understand the basics of algebra. Geometry helps, too. You will need to be able to perform unit conversions. Expect to work chemistry problems on a daily basis. Don't rely too much on a calculator. Chemistry and physics use math as an essential tool.

3. Not Getting or Reading the Text

Yes, there are classes in which the text is optional or completely useless. This isn't one of those classes. Get the text. Read it! Ditto for any required lab manuals. Even if the lectures are fantastic, you'll need the book for the homework assignments. A study guide may be of limited use, but the basic text is a must-have.

4. Psyching Yourself Out

I think I can, I think I can... you have to have a positive attitude toward chemistry. If you truly believe you will fail you may be setting yourself up for a self-fulfilling prophecy. If you have prepared yourself for the class, you have to believe that you can be successful. Also, it's easier to study a topic you like than one you hate. Don't hate chemistry. Make your peace with it and master it.

5. Not Doing Your Own Work

Study guides and books with worked answers in the back are great, right? Yes, but only if you use them for help and not as an easy way to get your homework done. Don't let a book or classmates do your work for you. They won't be available during the tests, which will count for a big portion of your grade.
