Plasmas. Plasmas exist in a wide range of settings and varieties.

Plasmas

Most stars are made up of plasma. The Aurora Borealis is a plasma light show in our upper atmosphere caused by the bombardment from space of the solar wind - another kind of plasma. Lightning bolts are visible plasma trails left by the passage of the electric current that formed it. As stated in the definition, plasma is a gaseous type of state where the matter making the plasma consists of electrically neutral and charged particles. Overall, plasma is electrically neutral having as many positive ions as free electrons distributed through it. Accelerating electrons through ordinary gas can create plasma, in just the way they create lightning. If you do it in a very low pressure gas - something like the interior of an incandescent light bulb - you usually just get a kind of diffuse glow. ChemThink. Chemistry Virtual Textbook.

Chemistry in a nutshell: The major concepts and ideas of chemical science, and a look at some of the major currents of modern Chemistry. 2 Getting started in Chemistry: essential background New Version - Aug 2013 Classification and properties of matter • density and buoyancy • energy, heat and temperature • units and dimensions • measurement error and uncertainty • significant figures and rounding off 3 The basics of atoms, moles, formulas, equations New Version - Aug 2013 These five units take you through basic atomic theory and chemical arithmetic, and how chemicals are named. 4 What is pseudoscience? How to tell the difference from science. MSDS ARCHIVE FOR THE CNTECH LABORATORIES. MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheets) at CNTech Etchants, adhesives, plating baths, etc. Safety Information All chemicals at CNTech can be idenrified by their CAS (Chemical Abstract Service) Registry Number.

This is a unique identifier that tells you, for example, that acetone and dimethyl ketone are actually the same substance. From a safety and inventory perspective, this is a terrific idea. The Synchrotron Radiation Center (SRC) has a safety manual available on the Web. More information is available from the SRC Safety Officer, Bruce Neumann All chemicals at CNTech should be labeled with a hazard code chart, like the one shown below. Blue – Health Red – Flammability Yellow – Reactivity White – Special precautions For a more detailed explanation of these hazard codes, start here . Untitled.

UNC Chemistry Fundamentals

If needed, use the link under Useful Materials to download Netscape About the Chemistry Fundamentals Course This exercise is designed for anyone who wants an introduction or review of the fundamentals of chemistry that will be used in freshman level chemistry classes. This interactive course was used for the first time during the summer of 1997. Evaluations from last year's materials suggested that, while the mathematics and calculator sections were useful, one of the most appreciated benefits of the materials was the review of basic high school chemistry. Currently, this site is used as a resource that can be beneficial to any student that is enrolled in a freshman chemistry course. About these materials How to use these materials The basic procedure is as follows:Take the pre-test for a certain sections.

Bond Energy

Both hydrogen and oxygen gas exist as diatomic molecules so the equation for this chemical reaction is The prefixes tell us that it takes 2 molecules of water to produce one molecule of oxygen and two molecules of hydrogen. If we decompose 36 grams of water (2 moles), we produce 2 moles of hydrogen gas (4 g) and one mole of oxygen gas (32 g).

In this reaction, covalent bonds between the hydrogen atoms and oxygen atom in water have been broken and new bonds — between the hydrogen atoms in H2 and the oxygen atoms in O2 — have been formed. This reaction requires the input of energy (electrical in this case). Bond Energy There are many forms of energy: electrical mechanical chemical but all forms are ultimately converted into heat.
