  • 1-7 Problem Solving

1-1 What is Chemistry?
  • The study of substances and changes they undergo
  • Chemistry in action touches every aspect of
  • The central science underlies all other
  • The study of matter

1-2 The Scientific Method
  • A way to answer questions and solve problems
  • Steps in the Scientific Method
  • Observation Curiosity about nature
  • Question Why or how the event occurs
  • Hypothesis Proposed or tentative answer
  • Experiment Test with variable control
  • Conclusion Analyze data interpret results
  • Natural Law Explains how nature behaves
  • Theory Explains why, allows prediction

Scientific Method Flow Chart
1-3 Safety in the Laboratory
  • Rules Procedures
  • Follow teachers and lab directions
  • Notify teacher of problems
  • Know how to use safety equipment
  • Wear safety goggles at all times
  • Tie back long hair
  • Avoid awkward transfers
  • Let hot stuff cool or use tongs / hot mitts
  • Carry chemicals defensively
  • Dispose of wastes properly
  • Clean up after lab

Know Your Safety Symbols
  • See text page 16 figure 1-12
  • Memorize the equipment and symbols in your lab
    book for the test
  • Review the video study guides on lab safety

1-4 Units of Measurement
  • The Metric System
  • International System of units SI

1-4 Measurement Continued
  • Area and Volume Derived Units (combination of
    base units)
  • cm2 or m2 - area cm3 or m3 - volume
    1dm31liter 1 cm31 ml

B. Be careful converting between units
Some Derived Units
Common Metric Prefixes
1-5 Uncertainty in Measurement
  • Making Measurements
  • All Measurements are uncertain
  • Every measurement involves estimation
  • This uncertainty can be expressed as x where x
    is one tenth of the smallest measure possible
    with that instrument
  • Reliability in measurement
  • Precision - Repeatability of measurement
  • Accuracy - Nearness to accepted value

Accuracy vs. Precision
Precise Not Accurate
Accurate Not Precise
Not Accurate or Precise
Accurate And Precise
1-6 Working with Numbers
  • Significant Digits
  • Measurements are only as precise as the
  • Numbers must be rounded to the correct number of
    significant figures
  • Atlantic Pacific Rule - If a decimal point is
    present count from the Pacific side starting with
    the first nonzero digit. If a decimal is absent
    count from the Atlantic side starting with the
    first nonzero digit

Rules for Significant Figures
  • All zeros between nonzero digits are significant
    (count them)
  • Zeros to the left of an expressed decimal and to
    the right of a nonzero digit are significant
  • Zeros to the right of an expressed decimal and
    left of a nonzero digit are not significant
    (dont count)
  • Zeros to the right of nonzero digits that are
    right of the decimal are significant (count them)
  • If there is no expressed decimal all zeros to the
    right of the last nonzero digit are not

Practice on Significant Figures

1-6 cont
  • II. Significant digits in Calculations
  • A. When multiplying or dividing round to the
    least number of significant figures used in the
  • Example 2 X 12 24 round to 20
  • B. When adding and subtracting round to the
    fewest decimal places used
  • Example 3.02 5.3 1.158 9.478 round to
  • C. Conversions and exact numbers (counting
    numbers) have infinite significant digits
  • Example .0432 km X 1000 m/km 432 m
  • D. If several operations are performed dont
    round until the final answer
  • E.If the last number is ? 5 Round up or lt 5 round
  • III.Scientific Notation useful in working with
    very large or small numbers
  • A. Make sure you can convert from and to
    scientific notation ( See worksheets and handout)

1-6 cont..
  • IV. Percents and Percent Error
  • A. Be able to convert to decimals decimals to
  • B. Relative error (ER) is calculated by taking
    the observed value (O) minus the actual value (A)
    (this is absolute error (Ea)) and dividing by
    the actual value (A) then multiplying by 100.
  • C. Relative error is a measure of accuracy

V. Ratios A. Ratios such as density and speed can
be used to greatly simplify calculations
1-7 Problem Solving
  • Use dimensional analysis (factor labeling) to
    solve word problems
  • Conversion factors should be used to cancel the
    units you dont want and leave behind the units
    you do want
  • Always list the information you do know then read
    carefully to find out what you need to calculate.
    Set up the problem to solve for what you want to
    know. Check your answer to see if it is
    reasonable and in the correct units.
  • Practice - Practice - Practice
  • You must have this skill!

1-7 cont
  • Graphing
  • Label each axis with the variable and unit and
    give the graph a title
  • Independent variable goes on the X axis Dependent
    variable on the Y axis
  • Plot data points and connect with a best fit line
    (not dot to dot)
  • Use the finished graph to establish relationships
    (directly proportional, inverse, logarithmic)
    between the variables
