• Matt McQueen left his book in class on Friday (he thinks). If anyone picked up a book on Friday please contact Dr. G.
• OK, OK I made a mistake calculating the number of m3 in 6430 in3. Several students followed me to my office to beat me up about the calculation. The CORRECT answer is 0.105 m3. Sorry about that. Temperature conversions on Monday...hurray!
• I'll have the answers to PS#1 posted at the ProblemSet link sometime today.
• Problem Set #2 is due Wednesday, September 1, 1999 at the beginning of class. You can get your copy at the ProblemSet link, or pick one up in class today.
• The week of August 30 through September 3 we will do our first experiment (Experiment #1) in laboratory. You are expected to review the laboratory experiment before you come to class. Remember you will need your laboratory manual and safety goggles for the laboratory. Do not wear shorts or open-toed footwear to laboratory. If you do you will be asked to change. You are welcome to bring extra clothing and then change prior to laboratory.
• In class on Wednesday I indicated that I expected everyone to memorize the name (proper spelling), symbol and formula for the first twenty elements in the periodic table. For example;
 Name Symbol Formula Neon Ne Ne Oxygen O O2 Phosphorus P P4 Chlorine Cl Cl2 Magnesium Mg Mg
• In addition to the first twenty elements I want you to know the same information for other 'common' elements. We mentioned a few in class on Wednesday…uranium, gold, silver, mercury, molybdenum, lead, iron, barium, platinum…there will be more. In fact if I mention an element in class, you'd better know it for the future.
• Problem Set #2 is available at the Problem Set link. Get one early!
