This semester is a continuation of the study of energy, introduced to you in the first semester as mechanical energy. In this semester, you will study other forms of energy, including electric energy, magnetism, sound, and light. You will learn how mechanical and electromagnetic waves transport energy. Topics of special interest will include electric circuits, electromagnets, acoustics, color, mirrors, and lenses.
Before viewing an episode, download and print the note-taking guides, worksheets, and lab data sheets for that episode, keeping the printed sheets in order by page number. During the lesson, watch and listen for instructions to take notes, pause the video, complete an assignment, and record lab data. See your classroom teacher for specific instructions.
Students explore the chemical and physical properties of matter and discover how scientific ideas are connected to each other rather than existing in isolation.
In this unit, students learn about kinetics, which is the study of factors that affect the rate of chemical reactions. Students also investigate collision theory and the five components of kinetic molecular theory in gas.
If you’ve got an idea for the next great flavor of Coca-Cola but don’t know what to do with it, we’ve got you covered. We visit the world headquarters of The Coca-Cola Company in downtown Atlanta and talk with a few of their nearly 100,000 employees about what it takes to be one of the most recognized brands on the planet. As it turns out, those high school chemistry classes might come in handy.
