Week 5

Week 5 Session Reading and Homework
Monday, Oct 27th 9:00-11:30 Math and Physics Lecture

Take Home Test Due

Precalculus: Logarithmic Functions, 2.3-2.4
Physics: Work and Isothermal and Adiabatic Expansion
H&R 20.3 and 20.11
In Class:
Laws 18.1-18.4

1:00-3:00 Chemistry Workshop

· Zumdahl Ch. 6-thermochemistry
· Z. Covalent bond energies and chemical reactions p. 371-374
· Read AP Session 3 intro. P. 40-41
· Read AP Exp. 3B pages 48-49
· Read AP Exp 3C pages 52-53

Homework Due:
· Any problems from the last chemistry workshop that you did not finish.

In Class: We will introduce thermochemistry so we can understand how we get energy from fuels and how that energy depends on the fuel/air ratio and the type of fuel.
· Do Exp. 3B # 1, 2, 3, 4
· Do Exp. 3B # 5-8, 10 (you will each be given one of the fuels iso-octane, ethanol, or MTBE).
· Do Exp. 3C 1-4, 5 (look at % difference), 6-8

3:00-4:00 Optional Tutoring Session Precalculus, Physics and Chemistry in Long House 2007
Tuesday, Oct 28th

Group A: Chem Lab
Group B: Physics Workshop

· Read entire Exp. 3A lab
· Read AP Exp. 3D pages 55-56 (we will not be doing this exploration in class, but I wanted you to get an idea of the workings of an engine)
· Read AP Exp. 3E pages 59-62

Homework to hand in:
· Do Exp. 3A # 1-6 to prepare for lab
· Do Exp. 3E # 3
· Be sure to do any calculations from Monday's workshop that you didn't complete.
· Do Zumdahl Ch.3 # 93-95, 97, 98

In lab: We will use calorimetry to measure the heat capacities of several fuels including methanol, iso-octane, ethanol, and MTBE. We will then compare the theoretical values you calculated in class with your experimental values. We will also discuss the adiabatic flame temperature in relationship to automobile efficiency.
· Do the lab and complete the procedure described on page 46 and 47 of AP module.
· Do AP Exp. 3B # 9
· Do AP Exp. 3B # 11
· Do Exp. 3E # 4-13
· Do AP Checking your progress page 65 #1-5
