R.S. Tjeerdema ETX 102A February 1, 2009 "ENVIRONMENTAL FATE OF TOXICANTS" Midterm Exam Study Sheet The midterm exam (Monday, Feb. 8) will consist of short-answer questions (there will be one or two extra questions and you will have a choice of which you choose to answer). It will emphasize the materials (lecture notes and PowerPoints) presented in class (and posted on the web site). Reading materials are secondary in importance with a focus on the topics in the readings that were also covered in class (i.e. topics presented in the text that were not also touched upon in class will not be covered on the exam). Chemical structures do NOT need to be memorized. You should know chemical or mathematical equations discussed in lecture. You may need to perform calculations if they were covered in class or discussion, so BRING A CALCULATOR just in case. Please remember the review session is during the discussion on Wednesday, Feb. 3 (2-3 pm). In addition, we will hold a 1 hour review immediately after the lecture on Friday, Feb 5 (as long as another class does not attempt to occupy our lecture room). We will be happy to answer any and all questions regarding the material to be covered on the midterm. PLEASE do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions – we are here to help! For the midterm, please know the topics outlined below (essentially all the lecture/handout materials up to and including that discussed on February 6). The list below is not meant to be all- inclusive, but a rough guide of what was covered to stimulate your studying efforts. 1. Basic Environmental Fate Processes and Definitions - Basic overview of fate presented in lecture - Chemical risk - How an understanding of environmental fate can help in the assessment of risk - Why it is important to define “normal” in environmental chemistry, and why it can be hard to do - Transport, partitioning, and transformations 2. Sources of Contaminants - Contaminant, pollutant, sources, sinks, etc. (i.e. difference between pollutant and contaminant) - Why it is important to define “normal” in environmental chemistry, and why it can be hard to do - Please know the sources of the natural and anthropogenic chemicals as discussed in class
