Main focus – 

1. To identify kinetic and potential energy changes on a heating or cooling curve.

2. To identify  points on a heating a cooling curve that represent when a solid first begins to       melt, etc.
3.  To determine whether a phase change is endothermic or exothermic
4. To define a solid, liquid, and a gas. 


Period  6: –

1. Whiteboard phase changes activity – 
 a) Draw a compound in three phases.
2.  Burn cotton with watersuperheat steam Demo (water in the GAS Phase)!

3.  Complete Lab 4 questions/conclusion


Today’s Demo – Superheating Steam (Water in gas phase).  

 I burned cotton with water because the gas LOST energy exothermically to the cotton as it condensed back into liquid water.  I had to heat the water endothermically to first get the water in the gas phase (boiling). I was able to superheat the water gas (water vapor) because gas has no limit to how hot it can get. There is no other phase for it to change into.  I was adding more kinetic energy to the gas THUS I WAS ADDING MORE POTENTIAL ENERGY to the gas!!  As the water gas moved faster (as it gained heat from the torch) its potential energy increased! Its potential was so High it had the potential to burn cotton! 

H2O (l)  +   Heat —> H2O(g)      Boiling (energy is needed to be absorbed) = endothermic

H2O (g)  —> H2O(l)  +   Heat      Condensation (energy released) =  exothermic

            The heat released exothermically from a gas condensing into a liquid is what burned the cotton balls!

Ice melting animation 

Notice that the water molecules are initially in the solid phase, which is a 3 dimensional geometric pattern (crystal formation). They are initially vibrating in their fixed positions very slowly (low temperature) and as they absorb kinetic energy (heat) their vibration increases.  The vibrations increase up until the molecules start pulling away from each other(melting). Why would the temperature stay constant at this point.

10/17 –  Tuesday  “B” Day Homework: 

1. Please make one more submission to Monday’s Nights form if you did not get a 100. Please pay close attention to the last question that I went over in class today.  I made new key for that question.

Please Study for a CAT tomorrow on the Heating and Cooling Curve.

2. Use the worksheet below as review. Do ONLY page 1 and 2 of the REVIEW Worksheet.
