Welcome to chemistry! This class deals with the chemistry of life on three levels:
Study guide ch 4 first part.
Lots of stuff to learn from sections 4.1-4.4 of this chapter. We got a head start on chapter 4 in
Wednesdays class. Fridays class will finish up ionic compoundsnext week Monday we start on
covalent compounds. So youll have to
Chapter 4 study part 2 sections 4.5 and 4.6 - Figure on working through these two sections on
Monday and/or Tuesday.
4.5 How do to H atoms w/ one electron each gain a mini-octet by forming H2? How about for two
atoms of F? Both H2 and F2 have a single bon
Chapter 2 study stuff:
Read section 2.1 and 2.2. (And dont hurry through these sections its kind of
conceptual but its important maybe give these two sections a combined hour including
the Masteringchem items mentioned below). In the book and in class, yo

Working with units/calculations
If your chemistry class takes 49.46 minutes and
your anatomy class takes 48 minutes, how
much total time is that?
If you fill up your new BMW with 42 moles of
hydrogen, how much oxygen would be required to
react with it?
A simple (but important reaction) =
hydrogen with oxygen)
Hydrogen as a replacement for
-BMW H7 stores liquid

1. .548 L
2. 1.25 L
3. 1.83 L

which to go through this (and work in your Masteringchem problems). Its easy to get
lost in the details. Use this as a guide to work your way th
