Students began the morning session today by attempting the second test, which covered gas laws.   A very large number of students were not prepared, judging by their Composition Books. If students don't complete work assigned outside of class the same date it is assigned, they will fall further and further behind.

With that in mind, the  following video by Paul Anderson was introduced in class on Day 5 (July 5th).   It helpfully reviews some of the information already given in lecture regarding heat and the enthalpy of reactions. It also features a very handy, step-by-step demonstration of how to apply Hess's Law (a SUBTLE and advanced topic) to calculate enthalpies.

Students have an assignment based on that video, which is available HERE as a PDF file.
