Week of 3/31

Monday: Entropy lesson. I used this powerpoint (the funny symbols are all supposed to be DELTA’s or = signs…for some reason the conversion from a windows machine to a mac messes up the symbols) and we made it through the summation of S, and G to calculate S of reaction and G of reaction.  We had about 30 minutes to work on homework problems.

If you missed the lesson check out this Thermodynamic Notes from NMSI. Here’s the notes that go with it.

Tuesday: We will review delta G and delta S concepts

Wednesday: We will learn how delta G and equilibrium are related and do a lab to determine whether a system is entropically or enthalpically controlled.
