Sample text

In applying the rules governing the use of significant figures, you should keep in mind that certain numbers involved in calculations are exact rather than ­approximate. 8t°C 1 32° A number that is spelled out (one, two, . ) does not affect the ­number of significant figures. 8 and 32 are exact. Hence they do not limit the number of ­significant figures in a temperature conversion; that limit is determined only by the precision of the thermometer used to measure temperature. A different type of exact number arises in certain calculations.

Put the bottles in hot sand for three months. Vapor will escape through the hole in the top, leaving a red powder. . One man more than any other transformed chemistry from an art to a science. Antoine lavoisier was born in Paris; he died on the guillotine during the French revolution. Above all else, lavoisier understood the importance of carefully controlled, quantitative experiments. These were described in his book Elements of Chemistry. Published in 1789, it is illustrated with diagrams by his wife.

81% oxygen. In contrast, mixtures can vary in composition. For example, a mixture of hydrogen and oxygen might contain 5, 10, 25, or 60% hydrogen, along with 95, 90, 75, or 40% oxygen. The properties of compounds are usually very different from those of the elements they contain. Ordinary table salt, sodium chloride, is a white, unreactive solid. As you can guess from its name, it contains the two elements sodium and chlorine. Sodium Chlorine, a nonmetallic element that is a gas. Sodium chloride, the crystalline chemical compound formed when sodium combines with chlorine.
