For this discussion question, pick out one of your favorite pre-packaged foods and take a picture of the nutrition label and ingredient list. You may also be able to find these online.
In your post, tell us first why this is one of your favorite foods (Is it convenience? Comfort food? Your secret vice?). Then, detail ONE of the following for your classmates:
1. List any pure elements that are found in the food. Check this against a periodic table to ensure that you are correctly identifying these.
2. Identify any ionic compounds that are found in the food. Remember that these will typically be salts of some kind, but may not be immediately obvious from the name. As an example, remember that monosodium glutamate (NaC5H8O4N) is an example of an ionic compound from your module. (If you have started Activity 1, this will help you with this).
3. Identify any vitamins that are present in the food. Provide your classmates with the chemical formula for those vitamins (or even the structure if you find it online). Do those vitamins have names other than just the letter “Vitamin __”?
4. Were there any ingredients that you couldn’t identify or recognize? Do a quick Internet search and provide your classmates with some information about that ingredient. Be sure to cite your source!
In your responses to your classmates, pick ONE of the above questions that he or she didn’t answer in the original post and answer it for him/her.

Scientist can use telescopes to look at stars billions of light years away.  Using the ‘images’ they gather from stars and planets, scientists are able to determine the size, temperature and mass of the star or planet.  Also, they can determine the chemical composition, specifically if there is water and organic (carbon-based) materials.  The technology required to do this goes well beyond your typical Wal-Mart telescope.  Scientists don’t just use telescopes like we are used to, those based on visible light, they also use ‘telescopes’ that use other forms of light.  Some notable examples are x-ray and radio-wave telescopes.  
For this paper, I want you to write about how some of the information can be used to find water on other planets.  What type of telescopes and what forms of light are being used?  What are the key pieces of information they are looking form (the signature clues that water is present)?
You may need to break your paper into the following parts, though they are not required:
An explanation of the electromagnetic spectrum and the relationship between frequency/energy/wavelength
The types of telescopes that can be used to detect water and what makes them so special
The characteristic readings that scientists are looking for.
Your paper must be 5-7 pages, not including the citations page.  Double spaced is fine.  
A citations page is required and must contain at least two references from scientific journals (accessible through the library webpage, email if you need help)
Any format is fine (MLA, APA, etc..) just be consistent

Perform a search that pertains to the drinking water that is delivered to your house in your specific town. Include the following information: a. From where does your drinking water come? b. What steps are used in purifying it? c. What is this concentration of chlorine, fluorine and the hardness? Are these acceptable levels? Include the source(s) used for your essay.

Chemistry

The production of hydrochloric acid in the stomach is activated to facilitate the digestion process and also under stress conditions. As the contents of the stomach move into the small intestine, cells produce bicarbonate (HCO31-) that neutralizes the gastric acid until the pH is about 5. Where do you stand on using antacids to neutralize the excess stomach acid? Why? 

Connect And Reflect

Associated Objectives
Apply topics and concepts in the physical sciences to a given real-world scenario
Reflect critically on your ability to apply and connect topics and concepts in the physical sciences
The Accident at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant
In this exercise, you will connect and apply course topics and concepts to a real-world scenario. Then, you will critically reflect and articulate some thoughts about your perceived learning, which can be a powerful bridge in the learning process. After reviewing your submission, your instructor will provide you with personalized feedback to further your learning and contribute to your understanding and application of the concepts.
Activity Instructions
Spend some time reviewing the text and video information regarding the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in 1986 at the following links:
U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission: Backgrounder on Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant Accident (Links to an external site.)
Video: The Chernobyl Disaster: How It Happened (Links to an external site.)
Then, formulate, using your own words and thoughts, a two-paragraph written discussion that concisely* fulfills the following requirements:
Paragraph 1: Outline connections between concepts and topics covered thus far in the course and the information you reviewed regarding the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. Make clear but general connections between the information and specific topics and concepts; detailed explanation is not expected
Paragraph 2: Based on your discussion in paragraph 1, formulate a discussion that reflects on your learning thus far in the course. In doing so, consider answering the following questions
How did the knowledge you’ve acquired prepare you for developing paragraph 1?
How has the knowledge you’ve acquired affected your interest in the topics and concepts presented?
How will the knowledge you’ve acquired apply to ventures beyond this course?

Chem Help?

We have a project for chem due Monday, it’s easy but I’m busy catching up on English rn and don’t have the time for it so I’m willing to pay anyone who can do it through PayPal.
The directions for the project go as follows: 
Create a google slideshow that uses two different household situations to demonstrate concepts that you learned in Chemistry this semester. (side note: we cannot use a furnace burning methane cause that was the example they used). For each situation you must define and apply 2 or more chemistry concepts (topics are below this) and you must talk about the atoms, molecules and/or formula units and how they interact in the items/situations. Making a diagram of what happens and explaining it might be helpful.
Topics from this semester (each item/situation MUST include two of these): Phases/ Phase Changes, Gas laws, Chemical Reactions (Balancing equations/Types), Stoichiometry, Solutions and Molarity, and Rates / Acids and Bases.
Points:
* Applies multiple chem topics (chapters) accurately (4 pts)
* Accurately describes the involvement of the interaction of atoms, molecules, formula units and/or Ions (4pts)
* Overall Quality (2pts)

Use the checklist to write a 4-page research paper about the topic, on whether or not the periodic table needs to be updated or not.
