Emerald Beryllium Oxide
Ruby Aluminum Oxide
Sapphire Aluminum Oxide
Topaz Aluminum Oxide
Amethyst Silicon Oxide
Agate Silicon Oxide
Onyx Silicon Oxide
Diamond Allotrope of Carbon
Pyrite Iron Sulfide

Industrial Processes

We talked about industrial process a bit in our Main group chemistry. There will be one question on industrial processes on exam 3. It could not be easier. You need to know what the following industrial processes are

The Haber Process
The Hall Process
The Bayer Process
The Oswald Process
The Contact Process

They will all by in the class notes, the notes from Laude, or can easily be found online

New office hour

Natalie Guimard will have an additional office hour tonight from 6-7 in cubicle A

Exam 3 on Thursday Night

The exam will be in UTC from 7-9.
Last name A-K will be in UTC 2.102A
Last name L-Z will be in UTC 2.112A

Dropped quiz problems are now on the grading page

The Quest grades are still in flux. Look for a finalized version soon on eGradebook. The Quest grades are changing by the day.

Looking for extra help

Are you looking for extra help but your not sure where to turn. Check out Dr. Laude's webpage. On his "course notes link" are 30 question reviews for each exam (if you can make out the handwriting). Also there are his "class notes". Condensed versions of the course material. Laude's Page

Reveiw Sessions

Dr. Vanden Bout will have a review session for exam 3, on Wednesday from 4-6 in WEL 2.122. In addition, Dr. Laude's TA Travis will have a review on Tuesday night from 7-8 in ECJ 1.202. ECJ is just to the East of RLM at the far Northeast edge of campus.

Makeup Exam 3

The Makeup for exam 3 will be DIFFERENT than for the other exams. As it will need to be given during the dead days (Sunday night), only those students will a valid excuse will be able to take the makeup exam. Everyone else will need to take the exam this Thursday! If that does not make sense then read it again. There should be very few conflicts with this exam as the majority of our conflicts were with lab sections and everyones labs should be finished by now. If you feel you have a valid excuse, please fill out this Conflict Form and turn it in to the undergraduate office.

Quiz 6 update

Some how I spaced and made quiz 6 only 6 questions. I couldn't figure out why it only fit on one page until it was done. As such this one will count as if we dropped two questions. Yes, that is two free questions for you. I work on finalizing what question(s) if any I will drop from the other quizzes.

Quiz 6

I have put up a new worksheet to prepare for quiz 6. This worksheets has a number of problems that are typical of what you might be asked about the maingroup chemistry. The quiz questions will be like these questions, but they will not likely be exactly the same. For each question on the worksheet you should think of a different question that might be asked. Many of the questions are written as T/F, but the quiz will have no T/F questions. For example one question is T/F Beryllium is typically found as a carbonate. The answer is F. However what you should be thinking is "How is Beryllium typically found. An oxide. For that matter how is Mg found? Na? K? Al?...." Use the example to try to make up your own question. Topics on the quiz. There will be six questions about the eight groups + hydrogen. So there might not be a question about group 3 on the quiz (there might be). Study all the groups and hydrogen.

iClicker Score

Currently I cannot upload your iClicker score to Quest. It is not difficult to try to guess what grade you have. Here is how it works. If you come to class and answer at least half of the questions I asked that day (your answer could be right or wrong it doesn't matter) you get one point for that day. To date we have had 22 lectures. So your max score at this point could be 22. Maybe you missed a lecture. Maybe you forgot your iclcker. Maybe you don't like to participate. In any case, your score may be lower. We have 5 more lectures before the end of the class, so the total will end up out of 27. If you have a score of at least 20/27 you'll get 100%. This score will replace a low quiz score (effectively dropping a third quiz). There are some of you who have not registered your iClickers. I'll work on the upload to quest so you can see how you are doing and let me know if your not getting credit. I have all the clicker responses with the iClicker ID, but if you haven't registered yet I don't know who to give the credit. Currently more than 1/2 the class will get full credit.

Scholarly extra credit

Unlike the undergradute research extra credit in which you will all be going to the poster session on 4/18 or finding a poster in the hallways of campus, the scholarly lecutre will take some planning. Yes there are lectures all the time. Yes they are on a wide variety of topics. And yet, you should plan ahead and go to one. Now. Today. This week. Next week. Do not wait until the last week of class and then claim there were no relevent lectures that week.

Grade on Quest

Don't get too crazy excited about your grade on Quest with the dropped problems. Current it is dropping them (and giving some people credit). This will change once I figure out how to make it work the way I want.

Questions from Exam2 makeup2

The grading page now has the questions we are dropping from exam2

Extra Credit #1

Perhaps you don't understand, but the extra credit is a remarkably easy way to improve your grade. This will add a full point onto your final grade. For taking the time to talk to someone about chemistry and sending me an email. I can't quite believe that every single person in the class who is not getting about a 95% didn't do this. Perhaps you are thinking it won't matter. As you can see we have three extra credit assignments. That means you could get 3 points added onto you score. Let's say you have a terrible grade, but you get a 77 on the final. With those three points you get a B! It might bump you up to an A. It might be just what you need to pass the class. In any case, it will help. In any case, it is very easy. As such, I am giving those of you who skipped the extra credit or turned it in late a 2nd chance. I will extend the the deadline on "spring break" extra credit until Saturday April 12 at 3AM. Don't procrastinate. Do it today!

Extra Credit #2 Undergraduate Research

Due date Saturday May 3, 3AM

Go to the undergraduate poster session on Friday, April 18th, some time between 11 am and 3pm in the Welch Foyer (the big area right outside our classroom).
For details go to: Find a poster you like, talk to the person standing in front of it (the one who did the research not a random by stander) for 5 minutes, and then go home and email me about your experience. Spend a few sentences telling who did the poster, why you liked the poster, and how interesting it was to see that students your own age are doing world class research that you could be doing with a little initiative. For those of you who can't go to the poster session, an alternative bonus opportunity is to walk through any of the science buildings on campus on the upper floors and stare at the walls. You are sure to find posters describing the research of some of the labs around campus. Just look over one of those and follow the same instructions including the name of the first author on the poster. Include you EID in the email to get credit

Subject Line: Extra Credit Undergraduate Research
Due Date: Saturday May 3 at 3AM

Extra Credit #3 Scholarly Lecture

Due date Saturday May 3, 3AM

There are lectures of a scholarly nature occuring every single day all over campus in addition to the courses that are being taught. Every department webpage will have a schedule of lectures listed under "seminars" or some such heading. The wall across from the "mailroom" in Welch hall has too many fliers to count about lectures around campus. Typcially, these talks are 50 minutes with a period for questions after the talk. They occur every day of the week, non stop, all year long. Go to one that is related to your academic interests. Email me about it and tell me why you chose this lecture. Some people have asked about substituting a cultural event such as the opera or a play (particulary one related to science). I leave it to you to explain why your choice of event is related to your scientific and academic interests. Include you EID in the email to get credit

Subject Line: Extra Credit Scholarly Lecture
Due Date: Saturday May 3 at 3AM

Office Hours DVB

I (Dr. Vanden Bout) will be out of town on Wednesday at the National Meeting of the American Chemical Society (ACS). As such, I won't be having office hours on Wed afternoon. I will hold a special office hours on Tuesday from 4:45-5:45 instead. WEL 2.122. 4:45 not 4:30

Exam1/Makeup1 Questions

I have found a number of questions on exam1 and the makeup exam that had sufficient problems that I am dropping them. This may or may not help your score. It is possible that you got the correct answer on your exam. This may have occurred as you had some insight into how interpret what was a poorly worded problem or you may have simply guessed the correct answer. As the statistics on all the problems show that the number of people with the correct answer is close to that achieved by random guessing that is a lot of you who got the correct answer. This will not count against you. It simply means you get credit for the problem just like everyone else. This will not be a topic for debate. I am dropping problems for one of two reasons. Either there is something I feel is wrong with the problem, or I think there is a particular topic that we did not in fact cover in my lectures. Info on the problems and how to figure out your grade can be found on the "grading" page.

What to do about studying

1. Come to class. The things we talk about in class are the important topics.

2. Come to office hours. You should be going to at least one office hour one afternoon or evening every week. Not just before quizzes. Not just before exams. Not just before the final. Better yet go to more.

3. Find a friend to study with. Explain the problems to each other. Not how to do them, but why you work them that why. Imagine other ways to ask the same questions. For example a problem might give you two rate constants at two temperatures and ask for the activiation energy. You should realize this is the same problem as having one rate constant at one temperature , the activation energy, and needing the rate constant at a different temperature.

4. Don't expect the quiz/exam to be the exact same problems as you've seen. Try to imagine other problems that test the same ideas. Know the ideas. Not an algorithm for solving a particular problem.

5. If something doesn't make sense, ask a question. Email a TA. Email me. Email a friend.

6. Study the things on the quiz/exam. For example there are no questions about electrochemistry on the quiz on Thursday. Not the echem is not very important. It is just not important for the quiz.

Integrated Rate Laws

The integrated rate laws we discussed in class are for the rate of the reaction. Therefore if you are looking at a reactant that has 2 moles in the balanced equation then then you need to multiply by two in the integrated rate equation. That is for the reaction A + 2B > C. If it is first order then
ln[A] = ln[A]0 -kt
But ln[B] = ln[B]0 - 2kt
B is changing twice as fast a A. 2 moles of B for every one mole of A. There is only one rate constant k for the reaction so you need to take into account the differences in the numbers of moles for the reactants in the integrated rate equation.

Kinetics Review Sheet

There is a review of Kinetics for quiz 5 at the bottom of the worksheet page.

Office Hours

Ms. Guimard, who is one of our TA's will be out of town next week, so don't try to find her at her office hours.

Do not go to our regular classroom.
Do not go to a room with Dr. Laude's exam

The exam on Sunday will be in location to be announced You cannot take the exam on both nights. If you come on Wednesday and start the exam you will need to finished that exam.


Dr. Vanden Bout will have a review session for Exam 2 on Monday from 4-6 in WEL 2.122 and on Tuesday from 5-6:30 in WEL 2.122. I will also have my office hours on Wed right before the exam, but that is not the best time to start studying.

Other Review Sessions

Dr. Laude will hold a review in JGB 2.324 (Geology) Monday at 8-9. There will also be a TA run review on Tuesday 7-8 in LLB 103.

Wed Night vs. Sunday night

We will have a make-up exam on Sunday night for those of you who cannot make it Wed for whatever reason. You need not apply or tell me in advance. However, I would strongly recommend taking the exam on Wed as the beginning of next week will be full of review sessions. After Wed there will be no additional reviews for the exam.

Extra Credit Assignment

To earn 1% of your course grade that you can add to your point totals for the semester, complete the following assignment and follow all of the instructions. This extra credit can be used to calculate exemptions. Depending on your method of grading, 1% will be worth 7 points for exemption from the final, 10 points for overall course grade or 3 points if the final counts for everything.

What do you need to do?
Step 1 complete the assignment as described below
Step 2 Write it up (100 words minimum. More may be helpful)
Step 3 Email me at my class email:
Step 4 The subject of your email must be: Spring break extra credit
Step 5 Send the email before Friday March 28 at noon

What is the assignment?
During Spring Break I want you to teach someone something you learned in our class this semester. Preferably I would like you to seek out someone who thinks science is the worse thing in the world and teach them something you found interesting. Ideally when you are done they should say something like "I wish I could take a Chemistry course. It sounds so interesting!" If they do not spontaneous come up with such a response, you could ask them to say something along those lines.

You will then send me a breif email about what you taught them and their reaction.

It sounds easy. How can you go wrong?

Here are couple examples of things to avoid that will inevitably make you sad as you'll miss out on the extra credit.
You might send the email to my other email address (the one that is not the "class email") This will be sad as it will miss my email filter and get put in the trash.
You might be clever and use as your subject "easy extra credit from Dr. Vanden Bout". This will again miss the email filter and get you zero extra credit.
You could send me a blank email. That will get you zero extra credit.
You could miss the deadline....
Essentially if you follow the directions, it will be very easy.
If you ignore the directions you get zero points.
Enjoy. I look forward to reading your stories

Quiz 4 is next Thursday

The topics for quiz 4 will be as follows

Sulfuric Acid Calculation
Common Ion Solubility
Selective Precipitation
Indentifying Error in A/B approximations
Exact Solution for a Strong Acid

Worksheet 8 is posted

Worksheet 8 on complex equilibria has been posted

Quiz now on Thursday

As we didn't get the print out this morning, quiz 3 will now be on Thursday February 28, 2008. Same topics. The only thing in todays lecture that would be helpful for the quiz is the discussion of solubility (not selective preciptiation which is also very interesting but just not on the quiz).

Quiz 3

Quiz 3 will be Thursday. Topics shown below.

You need to work on worksheets 6, 6+, and 7

Work on figuring out what is in solution after neutralization.
Then work the equilibrium problem.
Is it a strong acid, weak acid, buffer, weak base, strong base?
Where do each of these occur on the titration curve

Other helpful stuff posted

I have posted my notes from today. These include a number of slides I had to skip to make sure we got it all in. More examples in the slides. Look them over.

Old quiz from last year. (has the answers. I'm working on the non-key versions.)
Other help sheets on identifying acids and bases and working acid base equilibria.

2. buffer identification
3. buffer neutralization
4. titration caclculation
5. polyprotic acid equilibria
6. polyprotic acid calculation
7. solubility calculation

Exam1 Results

Our first exam has come and gone. Many of you are wondering about the averages. The Wed. exam had an averge of 64 and Sunday was a 66. I will look at the specifics of both of the exams to see if there are any problems that we will need to throw out. Many thanks for all of your emails with suggestions of which problems these might be. I have plenty of suggestions at this point.

Many many people have asked me what they can do to get better. My number one answer is that you should go to more office hours. The TAs have told me they have very limited numbers of people coming to get help. I have had a regularly group coming to see me, but it is no larger than the group I would have in a class of 75 and this is a class of 475. I am happy to schedule a larger to room to have reviews each week if there is a demand. I will schedule a large room for a review session before the next exam.

Sunday Exam

Sunday Nights exam will be in WEL 1.308 and 1.316. Those on the first floor of Welch. They are down the stairs by the undergraduate office. We will start promptly at 6:30. Please get there early so we can all be ready.

Formula Sheet

This formula sheet will be given to you are the exam.

Exam1 Update

You can take the exam either tonight from 7-9. Or Sunday from 6-8.
It is up to you. You make the call. ANYONE CAN TAKE IT SUNDAY
If you are taking it Wednesday. The exam will start promptly at 7:30. Get there early.
The exam is not in Welch
It is in two rooms in UTC

If your last name starts with A-K you are in UTC 2.102A
If your last name starts with L-Z you are in UTC 2.112A

Do not go to our regular classroom
Do not go to a room with Dr. Laude's exam

The exam on Sunday will be in room I am finding now.

You cannot take the exam on both nights. If you come on Wednesday and start the exam you will need to finished that exam.

Strong Base

Here is a list of strong bases to know
NaOH, KOH, LiOH, RbOH, CsOH, Ca(OH)2, Ba(OH)2, Sr(OH)2
For the real world the best four to remember (ones people actually use) are
NaOH, KOH, Ca(OH)2, and Ba(OH)2

Acid Strength

Many people have asked me about ranking acid strength. This is based on the Ka for the acid. How much does it break up into protons and the conjugated base. The stronger the acid the more products there are (the more H+). Therefore the bigger the Ka the stronger the acid.

Quiz 2 grade

On quiz 2 managed to kill the bad problem rather than give everyone credit for it. This makes a minor difference in your percentage score. If you got a 100% then it doesn't matter. If you got less than that it will bring you percentage up slightly.

What if I have no grade?
Then you managed to either not bubble in your name or your version number. (or you didn't take the quiz). If this is you, then email your EID and version number to our TA Kal so he can get it fixed on Quest.

In addition there is a copy of last years exam from Dr. Laude's class to give you an idea of what to expect. On Tuesday we will go over more acid base material similar to what we covered today (2/6). This will be a good review for the exam.

Quiz 2 Topics

The following topics will be covered in quiz 2

Determining K from equilibrium concentrations
Determining equilibrium concentrations from K
Appreciating what the magnitudes of K values mean
Predicting reaction direction from Q and K

Van't Hoff equation relating K to T

BIG NEWS!! Quiz 2 will be next week Thursday

I am going to delay quiz 2 unitl next Thursday. We bit off a lot of material today (1/29) and I want to have more time to go over equilibrium problems as these will be at the heart of our acid/base material.

Quiz 2 will now be next Thursday (2/7) instead of Tuesday (2/5). The first exam will stay on the same day.

First Quiz Results

This is our first time to utilize the Quest system. As such it will take a bit longer to get the quizzes graded. The key to the quiz will be avilable on Quest 1/30/08. I cannot change the settings to make it available any sooner. The grades will likely be up by 1/30/08 as well.

On another related note, your iClicker scores are not on Quest. I am working on how to upload them into the system.

Exam Conflicts

It seems the entire class has a conflict with our evening exams. No doubt that I could be as difficult about make-ups as whatever other course exam is in conflict, but I won't be. Very simply, there will be giving a make-up exam on the Sunday evenings at 6 p.m. following the regularly scheduled exams. Exceptions to this make-up time will be staggeringly few in number, so don't go scheduling anything for those Sundays if you already have conflicts.

If you have a conflict please download the following Conflict Form fill it out and bring it to the undergraduate office in WEL 2.212

First Quiz

Our first quiz is Tuesday, one week from today and will cover the material in the first four lectures and on Worksheet 2. The eight question will cover the following topics.

Calculating ΔH for a substance across various phase transitions
Interpreting phase diagrams
Claussius-Clapeyron equation for vapor pressure
Ranking miscibility and solubility in liquids
Theory of dissolution of gases, liquids, and solids in water
Ranking the magnitude of colligative properties (including van't hoff factor)
Colligative property calculation

There is one of each of these type problem on Worksheet 2.
This quiz is likely fairly challenging.
Some things you should know about quiz procedures:

Quizzes will occur the last 20 minutes of class and will cover 8 questions worth five points each.

You will be provided a scantron at the beginning of class to be filled in correctly. It is important that you learn to do this so you can get credit for your quizzes and exams.

I will provide you with all necessary equations and constants at the beginning of the quiz.

I am not a real stickler for time on quizzes (I am a stickler on exams) but you do need to be finished in time for the other class to come in.

Expect to have the quiz grades and the answer key posted on QUEST soon after the class ends.

If there is a problem with your grade contact our head TA Kal.

There are no make-ups for quizzes. You get to drop two so they are used in that way for both academic and non-academic reasons. Only contact me about make-ups if your absences are chronic.

Things You Should Have/Buy

The Textbook

How Come I've seen TWO different Chemistry Textbooks Is there more than one 5th edition Zumdahl textbook?

The version in the picture (with a photo of Welch Hall) is the special edition "custom" printed specifically for the Universisty of Texas Chemistry Department. What's so great about it? It has a flypage with the order of Chapters listed for CH301 and CH302. We do not follow the normal ordering (1, 2, 3, ...). So this is helpful - although not perfect, we could easily change the ordering. This Edition (ISBN:0547005962) includes an EduSpace passcode. There is a companion web site that goes with this book. To have access to the web site you must have a passcode. This edition of the book includes a passcode for you to use to gain entry to this special web site. This Edition is Sold to the Bookstore (UT Co-op) CHEAPER than the regular (non-UT) version. So you are able to buy a brand new textbook about $30 less than what you would normally pay. Plus you get a great tutorial site for extra help.

There is another "regular" (printed for the masses) 5th edition textbook. This edition is available in all sorts of places. I've seen various ISBN numbers also. Amazon has this book available as well as other web sites for books. It is EXACTLY the same book except for the cover and flypage. When you purchase this version of the book, you will NOT get an EduSpace passcode and will therefore NOT be able to access that web site. However, Amazon sometimes DOES get the version with the EduSpace passcodes - best to read carefully what you do and don't get. So do you care if you can access the EduSpace website? Maybe, maybe not. The site DOES have very useful information if you chose to go there and take the time to look. Does any of your grade depend on that web site? No. So you could use this book and save some money if you find it used somewhere. Just know that you will not have access to the EduSpace web site.

iClicker Registration

This link will take you to the iClicker Registration Site.

If your iClicker is already registered (from last semster or another class) you need not register again.


To register for Eduspace you will need an account Information for loging in can be found on their site Eduspace Site.

Once you have an account you will need to enroll in the correct course.
The course code for our class is
