Week of Nov 30

Monday: Today we started the equilibrium unit with my oscillating rxn demo that didn’t work probably b/c I did not use distilled water! Ugh! Then we did the reversible reactions simulation from PhEt and then did the penny moving lab to derive the equilibrium constant and learn the difference between the constant and the equilibrium position as well as factors that affect both of those.  In the last 15 minutes I went through some of the notes I’ve given you including the graphs and how to write equilibrium constants from reactions + the meaning of the equilibrium constant.
