Objectives for Lecture 2 Discussion of Grading scale for 230 this term Plain language understanding and examples using the 5 step structured problem solving method introduced Friday. Discuss the importance of dimensional analysis in problem solving A plain language understanding of the The Behavior of Ideal Gases PV = nRT Pressure - dimension analysis, units and the world around us. Boyle’s Law: PV = constant (T constant) Charle’s Law: V/T= constant (P constant) Avagadro’s law: V/n= constant (T, P constant) The Absolute (Kelvin) Temperature Scale Ideal Gas Law: PV = nRT combines all four concepts

This is a guaranteed minimum letter grade scale base on 520 points. In the event that the class letter grade average falls below the historical mean of 3.1 for 230, the letter grade scale will be adjusted in a linear manner so that the average letter grade is at least equivalent to a 3.1. In the event that the overall class letter grades average falls above the historical mean of 3.1 the grades will be based on the guaranteed grading scale. In this case, the average class grade will be higher than 3.1. Letter Grade Range qualifying for grade A+ 520-465 A 464-405 A- 404-385 B+ 384-355 B 354-325 B- 324-305 C+ 304-275 C 274-215

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
