Module 3: Moles
In this module you, will learn the units that chemists use to communicate to each other, and how to do the calculations that Chemists do in the laboratory. These calculations allows them both to identify an unknown substance and predict the theoretical yield of the desired product. This will involve working with balanced chemical reactions that act much like a recipe in cooking. Just like in cooking there are limited ingredients, you will explore this analogy with what we call a limiting reagent. Throughout this unit you will be working towards completing your unit task which will allow you to apply your knowledge in the industry section.
Overall Learning Goals:
- I will be able to analyze processes that involves the use of chemical quantities and calculations, and assess the importance of quantitative accuracy in industrial chemical processes. (D1)
- I will be able to demonstrate an understanding of the mole concept and its significance to that quantitative analysis of chemical reactions. (D2)
- I will be able to demonstrate an understanding of the mole concept and its significance to the quantitative analysis of chemical reactions. (D3)
