Unit 4: The Mole

 

Core Curriculum: Standard 1 Objective 2e; Standard 4 Objectives 1e and 2b

 I can define a mole as used in chemistry.

 

I can use the molar mass of a substance to relate the mass of the substance to the number of moles of the substance.

 

I can use a balanced chemical equation to relate the number of moles of reactants used to the number of moles of products formed.

I can classify reactions as endothermic or exothermic based on temperature changes.

 

I can use collision theory to explain how temperature, particle size, and concentration affect the speed of a reaction (consider number and energy of the collisions).

 

I can describe the concept of dynamic equilibrium.
