Learners examine the method used to calculate the mass percent of an element in a compound. Three examples and one problem illustrate the method.
Biomolecules: The Carbohydrates (Video)
By Becky Polk-Pohlman
Viewers watch an introduction to monosaccharides, disaccharides, and polysaccharides. The processes for dehydration synthesis and hydrolysis.
Calculation of Atomic Weight from Isotopic Composition
By Debbie McClinton, Dr. Miriam Douglass, Dr. Martin McClinton
Learners examine the method for calculating the atomic weight of copper from the natural percent composition of each of its two isotopes.
Learners examine how melting, vaporization, and sublimation require energy input while freezing and condensation release energy.
The Effect of Temperature on the Vapor Pressure of a Liquid
Learners examine how vapor pressure is calculated. The vapor pressure of a liquid increases with increasing temperature. If the heat of vaporization and the vapor pressure at one temperature are known, the vapor pressure at a second temperature can be calculated.
