- Hey...anyone in our section also taking
Entomology 2003?? Contact dr. g. if you are!
- After our staff meeting Dr. Ford and I
have decided to change next weeks laboratory. Instead of
doing Experiment #2: Solubility in Water we will do
Experiment #4: Separation of a Solid Mixture.
- We agreed in class on Wednesday to
postpone PS3 to Monday, September 13, 1999 at the
beginning of class.
- Remember EXAM #1 is Wednesday, September
15, 1999 at 5:30 pm. in PS101 or PS103. Be sure to check

- In ProblemSet PS3.3b the first question
askes which is at a higher temperature the aluminum or
the water? The question is referring to the comparison of
the temperatures of the aluminum and water in the second
system, not when the aluminum is in the boiling water.

- Need some Help with your chemistry? The
Chemistry Department offers free tutoring in PS023
(basement of Physical Sciences). Check the Free Tutoring
link on the left for the hours. Note that those TA's
teaching CHEM 1215 are identified with the red color.
Don't forget my office hours are 2:30 - 3:20 pm on T and
- In class I indicated that I expected
everyone to memorize the name (proper spelling), symbol
and formula for the first twenty elements in the periodic

- 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
uranium, gold, silver, mercury,
molybdenum, lead, iron, barium, platinum

better know it for the future.
