Week 25

Molar mass: the weight of one mole of any chemical compound.

Empirical formula: the simplest ratio of atoms present in a molecule.

Molecular formula: a chemical formula that shows the number and kinds of atoms in a molecule.

Molar volume: the volume occupied by one mole of a substance in liquid, solid or gas form.

STP: Standard Temperature and Pressure.


Percent Composition:

If i were to find the percent composition of a human, i would put them into  these seven categories:







and Hands.

Week 21

1. Sodium Chloride : Also known as table salt, sodium chloride is an ionic compound.  When mixed with water, it prevents the bonding of the snow-ice and road surface.  Two brand names are Cleanoz and Na-zone.

2. Magnesium Chloride: This is an anti-corrosive and helps protect your vehicles and equipment from rust and corrosion unlike most road salts that produce mud and create rust.  This is an ionic compound.  One brand name is Dust-off

3 Potassium Chloride: This is an ionic compound.  Although it works well as a road salt, it is bad for the environment because it is most frequently used as a fertilizer for plants.

Most companies use ionic over covalent.  I would guess they use chloride over the other because it has the ions to disperse and pull the water molecules out of ice formation and because it is no harm to humans.
