Seminar: Finish Chaos by next Tuesday (Seminar Week 10).
- The physics and calculus assignment is here.
- Reading: Knight Ch 30.
- Focus on calculating resistance, and whether they are larger or smaller in different geometries; calculating drift velocity is less important.
- Read: Ch 8.4, 8.5. These are important chapters — especially the last assigned problems for CH 8.5 (#34 and up). Here you are using integration in the context it is usually found — this is the start of real application in physics.
- Formal Lab Report draft due at 1 pm. Please bring 2 copies. Writing workshop from 1 – 3 pm in Lab I 1040
- Electrochemistry Lab Data from the class is available here
- Physics lab 3 – 5 pm in Lab I 1040. The Lab handout is available here. Please read the handout prior to lab.
- Reading: Chapter 19 The Nucleus: A Chemist’s View
- Reading Response available here
- Chapter 19 Problem Set: # 4, 9, 11, 13, 14, 19, 24, 26, 29, 33, 44, 45, 53, 54, 68
- Week 18 Problem Set Solutions here
- Week 19 Chemistry Learning Objectives:
- Be able to discuss and make predictions of nuclear stability of atoms based on number of neutrons and positions
- Be able to identify and write nuclear equations for different types of radioactive decay including fission, fusion, alpha emission, beta emission, gamma emission, positron emission, electron capture
- Do kinetics calculations for radioactive decay and associated applications such as carbon dating
- Calculate the change of energy associated with nuclear processes
- Be familiar with the possible types of radiation damage and methods of prevention
