Mole Problems I

  The video below goes through the three basic mole problems, namely, grams-to-mole, MIAs-to-moles, and liters-to-mole. Since these are conversion factors it works in the reverse also (e.g. mole-to-grams, moles-to-MIAs, mole-to-Liters). The last problem is a two step conversion. Contact me if you would like more examples. If enough people would like additional worked problems I will […]

It was developed by William Thomson, also known as Lord Kelvin, in 1848. A Kelvin degree is the same size as a Centigrade degree. This temperature scale however uses absolute zero, rather than […]

Uncertainty

Here are some examples of uncertainty. I believe after learning about uncertainty you will have a greater appreciation for significant figures! Examples of Uncertainty calculations Uncertainty in a single measurement Bob weighs himself on his bathroom scale. The smallest divisions on the scale are 1-pound marks, so the least count of the instrument is 1 […]
