Donald Sadoway: The missing link to renewable energy. The Periodic Table of Oxidation States. Click to enlarge There are a whole host of periodic tables out there, and I’ve already added to the pile with a periodic table of data previously.

The Periodic Table of Oxidation States

Today’s post is another variation on the theme: a periodic table showing the possible and common oxidation states of every element. I was looking for one of these last week, out of interest, and couldn’t find one that presented the information in an easy-to-comprehend manner. To try to solve that, I made the table you can see at the top of the post here. For non-chemists, it’s probably worth clarifying exactly what we mean by ‘oxidation state’. An atom of an element in a compound will have a positive oxidation state if it has had electrons removed. If your only experience of chemistry is from back in school, you might remember the concept of ions – atoms that have gained or lost electrons to form positively or negatively charged ions. Oxidation state 0 occurs for all elements – it is simply the element in its elemental form. Like this: Related. Electrochemistry. Chemistry 1401: Electrochemistry.

HSC: Chemistry

The key words found in each question are the essential element to unlocking all HSC science exams. The first thing you should do, before putting pen to paper, is identify the key words and what the question requires. The content, design and structure of your answers should be guided by what each key word requires you to do, such as 'outline', 'contrast' or 'describe'. Using the language of Chemistry appropriately in all responses demonstrates a more thorough understanding. In each exam the extended response questions enable you to demonstrate your wide knowledge of the course and to draw on and explain concepts across the Prescribed Focus Areas and the Domain of the syllabus. Knowledge of first hand investigations in is essential as is the ability to describe a procedure, interpret data and communicate results. Galvaniccelltypes124CH2012 - home.

Make a Bouncing Polymer Ball - Experiment with Polymers. Introduction Balls have been toys practically forever, but the bouncing ball is a more recent innovation.

Make a Bouncing Polymer Ball - Experiment with Polymers

Bouncing balls were originally made of natural rubber, though now bouncing balls can be made of plastics and other polymers or even treated leather. You can use chemistry to make your own bouncing ball. Once you understand the basic technique, you can alter the recipe for the ball to see how the chemical composition affects the bounciness of the ball, as well as other characteristics. The bouncing ball in this activity is made from a polymer. Bouncing Polymer Ball Materials Here's a list of materials you need to gather to make bouncing polymer balls: Let's make bouncing polymers balls...
