Q4: Week 3 – Archive

Week of 5/4 – 5/8

5/4 – Monday period 7 – 
1: Review Redox RAT (Castle Learning over the weekend) – most incorrect answers.
Lab 24 – completion – 
2: Please revisit your test tubes and make additional observations with the water tests.  The reaction rate is slower in water thus we should see more information regarding which metals are more reactive from sitting over the weekend.
3: Please write and complete all half reactions, net potentials, conclusion questions and rank.
4: Compare your ranking with Table J.
Lab 24 – Observations you should have made:
With Acid:      
If we had Sodium:                                     2Na  + 2HCl  =   2NaCl  +  H2
                               oxidation:                               2 Na     =      2Na+1   + 2e
                              reduction:             2e     +     2H+1    =      H2

With Water:

If we had Sodium:                                       2Na  +   2HOH   =    2NaOH   +    H2
                              oxidation:                              2Na     =      Na+1   + 2e
                              reduction:          2e     +     2H+1    =      H2
Because we make a base from this reaction, we add  phenolphthalein which goes pink in the presence of the a base.
1: Please complete  Redox HW 2 – 2015.pdf and place answers in the key.  You will automatically get an email back with the key once you submit.

Redox Homework 2



5/5 – Tuesday  period 7 – 
1: Review Homework – 
2: Lab 24 completion and Hand in!
3. Lab 24 wrap up – 
You should have a strong grasp of the reactivity series of metals.  
You should be able to identify and rank which metals were the most reactive (oxidize the best) and compare your results with the net potential table and table J.  You should be able to predict whether a metal will spontaneously react to form hydrogen gas in water or acid.
I will be demonstrating these concepts with 2 demos:
