Ch.1 Section 1 questions: Introduction to Chemistry


1. What is chemistry? Pg.4 Answer: the study of matter and the changes that it undergoes. Explanation: Because chemistry focuses mainly on matter and how it goes through different phases and stages to balance out correctly in the end. 2. Why do living organisms on earth exist? pg.5 Answer: Because they are protected from high levels of UVB by ozone. Explanation: The ozone is a thick layer that blocks living things from being highly exposed to, to much UVB. 3. What is the ozone made of? pg.5 Answer: The ozone is made of oxygen, is a substance in the atmosphere that absorbs most harmful radiation before it reaches earths surface. Explanation: Oxygen is what we breathe in to survive on earth and it surround it. 4. Do CFCs harm us or help us? pg.7 Answer: No CFCs help us they, because they are nontoxic and stable and do not readily react with other substances. Explanation: CFCs are made by scientist in a laboratory to help us no harm us theyre not natural substances. Summary: This section focuses on chemistry and what it is. It describes in vague detail what chemistry focuses on and why. Also it gives you different terms that wrap it all up into one. It also talks about the ozone layer which is what surrounds in protects us from UVB rays. Chapter 1 sec 2: Chemistry and Matter 1. Does matter have one form? Pg.9 Answer: No matter the stuff of the universe has many different forms. Explanation: Matter has three very distinct forms solid, liquid ,gas.

2. How do you define matter? Pg.9 Answer: Matter is defined by mass. Explanation: Mass is a measurement that reflects the amount of matter. 3. What is a basic understanding of chemistry? Pg.11 Answer: Chemistry is a central to all sciences biology, physics, earth science, etc. Explanation: Chemistry is in the middle of all the other sciences. 4. Do the areas of chemistry overlap? Pg.11 Answer: Yes they do, all areas work together. Explanation: Different types of chemist could study the same things. Summary: This section talks about how chemistry and matter work together. It introduces you to matter and how it works. It explains to you the basics of chemistry the fundamentals. This section is about how chemistry really gets started. Ch. 1 sec 3 Scientific Methods 1. What is a scientific method? Pg. 12 Answer: A systematic approach used in scientific study. Explanation: because its a organized process used by scientists to do research. 2. What are the steps of the scientific method? Pg. 12 Answer: Observation, hypothesis, experiment, revised hypothesis, conclusion, theory. Explanation: The method has different steps that lead you to the correct conclusion. 3. Are experiments important in a scientific method? Pg. 14 Answer: Yes the experiment is the most important part of the method. Explanation: Without an experiment theres no point in having a hypothesis or conclusion because it wont be right. 4. What is the scientific law? P. 16

Answer: a relationship in nature to develop further hypotheses and experiments to explain why these relationships exist. Explanation: Science needs some nature and realistic thinking and this law provides that. This particular section gets more into the natural part of chemistry. It also discusses the scientific method. The scientific method is what scientist use to figure things out. This section was a lot more informative.

Chapter 2 Analyzing Data


Section 1: Units and Measurement 1. Is there one more than one type of unit? Pg. 32 Answer: Yes there are several different units. Explanation: The units are different because they are measurements of different things. 2. Were units always exact? Pg.32 Answer: No they were not in ancient times they were far from exact. Explanation: In ancient times people would measure distance and things by taking extra steps so it wasnt always exact. 3. What is a base unit? Pg. 33 Answer: a defined unit in a system of measurement that is based on an object or event in the physical world. Explanation: A base unit is independent of other units. 4. What is a derived unit? Pg. 35 Answer: A unit that is defined by a combination of base units. Explanation: Volume and density are measured in derived units. Section one of this chapter introduces you to measurements in chemistry. The basic units are volume and density. Volume is the space occupied by an object while density is a physical property of matter. Those two go hand and hand. Section 2: Scientific Notation and Dimensional Analysis

1. When writing in scientific notation the two numbers above are known as the? Pg. 40 Answer: coefficients Explanation: scientific notation can be used to express any number that is a number between 1-10 known as the coefficient. 2. Is multiplying and dividing scientific notation a one or two step process? Pg. 43 Answer: Its a two step process Explanation: Multiplication and division doesnt require answers to be the exponents to be the same. 3. What is a dimensional analysis? pg. 44 Answer: is a systematic approach to problem solving that uses conversion factors to move, or convert from one unit to another. Explanation: because a conversion factor is already a ratio. 4. Can percentages be used as conversion factors? pg.44 Answer: Yes they can Explanation: A percentage is a ratio. Now this section is a little more interesting because it talks about conversion factors. Conversion factors are a ration of equivalent values having different units. Whats so interesting about conversion factors is how its all apart of an analysis a dimensional analysis that is. Which is a systematic approach to problem solving. Section 3 Uncertainty in data 1. Do accuracy and precision mean the same thing? Pg.47 Answer: to some people but to scientist they have a very different meaning. Explain: Accuracy is how close a measured value is to an accepted value. While precision refers to experiments. 2. What is the formula for the error equation? Pg. 48 Answer: error= experimental value-accepted value

Explanation: error is defined as the difference between an expiremental value and accepted value. 3. Are the error equation and percent error equation the same? Pg. 48 Answer: Percent error expresses error as a percentage of the accepted value. Explanation: Percent error is an extra step to the error equation so it cant be the same. 4. Are measurements reported with a lot of significant figures accurate and precise? Pg. 50 Answer: no they are not its very rare that theyre both. Explanation: If different people measured the same thing the answers would all be different but in close range. This section talked about accuracy and precision. Accuracy and precision to most are the same but in reality have very different meanings. What they have in common is that neither are exact. Still similarities dont make them the same.

The ratio of the mass of each element of the total mass of the compound expressed as a percentage. b. The sum of the mass of each element Explanation: It expresses the relative amounts of elements in compounds. This section is about elements and compounds. Elements and compounds are two different

things. In fact elements are basically a more basic version of compounds. They are very similar though.
