mixed substances

a blend of two or more pure substances


Examples of mixed substances

Ex. air made up of mostly N2 and O2, gas, salt water, soup milk.
The substances that make up a mixture are called constituents. 

Telling a mixture from an element or compound

Elements or compounds have 1 set of properties. Mixures retain the properties of each of its consituents.


Examples of telling a mixture from an element or compound

Salt water  it tastes salty and is a liquid like water
Fe(S) and S(s)  Fe is magnetic before and after mixing. S (s) is smelly before and after mixing. 

2) Telling amixture from an element or compound

The composition of a mixture is NOT fixed
EX I can add a lot or a little salt to water. 

heterogeneous mixture

visibly different parts.


Examples of heterogeneous mixtures

Chicken noodle soup
oil and vinegar salad dressing an Olympic gold medal (they are only gold plated) homemade lemonade (there are usually two phases liquid and solid) 

Scientific Notation

move the decimal so that only one nonzero number is to the left of the decimal.
If you move the decimal to the left the exponent is positive If you move the decimal to the right the exponent is negative. 

1,522,000,000,000

1.522 * 10∧12


1,904,000,000

1.904 * 10∧9


0.0075

7.5 * 10∧3


Multiplying Exponents

The first numbers are multplied while you add the exponent numbers


2.0*10∧4* 3.0 * 10∧1

6.0 * 10∧3


4.0 * 10∧7 * 2.0 * 10∧12

8.0 * 10∧19


Dividing Exponents

The first numbers are divided while the exponent numbers get subtracted  It's numerator subtracted by the denominator.


9.0 * 10∧4/2.0 * 10∧8

9.0/2.0 = 4.5 * 10∧48 = 4.5 * 10∧4


TI  83 Version

9*10∧4/(2.0*10∧8) = 4.5 E4 = 4.5 * 10∧4


6.0 * 10∧9/2.0 * 10∧7

3.0 * 10∧16


Power of exponents

anything to the zero power is 1


10∧0

1


2∧0

1


Adding and subtracting numbers with exponents

The exponent base number is the same.


2.0 * 10∧4 + 8.0 * 10∧5

2.0 * 10∧4 + 8.0*10∧5
.20*10∧4+1 .20 * 10∧5 + 8.0 * 10∧5 = 8.2 * 10∧5 

9.0 * 10∧7  5.0 * 10∧6

9.0 * 10∧7  .50 * 10∧6
8.5*10∧7 

Percent Composition

pts from test/total pts * 100
mass of interest/total mass * 100 

You have a 12g alloy made up of 2 g of Al, 3g of Fe and the rest Cu. What is the % by mass of Cu in the alloy

7/12g = 58.53 %
