Chapter Overview
A cornerstone of the chemical sciences, the manipulation of
numbers and their associated units. Measurement accuracies,
significant figures, rounding and scientific notation.

measurement, last digit on the right is uncertain

3. Trailing zeros after a decimal are significant 55.00 = 4 sig fig
4. Leading zeros are not significant 0.012 = 2 sig fig
5. Zeros at the end of a number, without a decimal point, are ambiguous 150 = 2 SF
D. Exact numbers/definition, conversion factors have infinite sig fig.
2.4 Significant Figures in Calculations
A. Multiplication and division:
Result carries as many significant digits as the factor with the fewest significant digits
B. Rounding
1. If leftmost dropped digit is 4 or less, round down (leave it same)
2. If leftmost dropped digit is 5 or higher, round up (increment it by 1)
C. Addition and Subtraction
Result carries as many decimal places as the quantity with the fewest decimal places
D. Calculations Involving Both Multiplication/Division and Addition/Subtraction
1. Do steps in parentheses first
2. Determine the number of significant figures in intermediate answer
3. Do remaining steps

2. Volume cm3 or L
Common Prefixes in the
Prefix Symbol Power of 10
mega- M 1,000,000 Base x 106
kilo- k 1,000 Base x 103
deci- d 0.1 Base x 10-1
centi- c 0.01 Base x 10-2

nano- n 0.000 000 001 Base x 10-9
2.6 Converting from One Unit to Another (UNIT 1 to UNIT 2)
A. Units are important, most numbers get one
B. Include units in all calculations
C. Conversion factors (Unit you have comes in the bottom, unit you want comes in the TOP)

Unit 1 X Unit 2 = UNIT 2

Unit 1
D. Significant figure of the final answer depends on UNIT 1 given in problem NOT the
sig. fig of the conversion factor

Solving Multistep Conversion Problems

A. Understand where you are going first
B. Not all calculations can be done in one step
Units Raised to a Power
A. 1 inch = 2.54 cm so 1 inch3 = (2.54 cm)3 = 16.4 cm3
2.7 Temperature: Random Molecular and Atomic Motion
A. Fahrenheit (F)
B. Celsius (C)
C. Kelvin (K)
F - 32 (1.8 C) 32 F
K C 273
2.8 Density = Mass/Volume; Remember Mass is in grams, volume in mL or cm3
Unit of density = g/mL or g/cm3

of other elements
3. Atoms combine in simple, whole-number ratios
to form compounds

4. Kilowatt-hour (kWh)- - Will not be used in CHE100
Exothermic Process: Heat is Released by a system or process
Heat q = negative; Here products are lower energy than reactants
Endothermic Process: Heat is Absorbed by a system or process
Heat q = positive; Here products are HIGHER energy than reactants
Section 4.5 Heat, Specific heat
The specific heat of a substance is the quantity of heat required to change the temperature of 1 g of
that substance by 1C units J/gC
Specific heat of water very high
Specific heat of metals are low, hence are good conductors of heat
Heat = mass of substance X Sp. Heat X Change in temp
= M S DT
2 body problem Heat lost by hot object = heat gained by cold object

Read definitions of Specific heat (cal/gC) meaning of it

Specific of heat of water = 1cal/g C = 4.184J/g C
