Question: What is Photosynthesis?

Photosynthesis - is the process by which plants create food.

How does photosynthesis occur?

The energy of sunlight is captured by plants and it is used in making sugar.

Photosynthesis

Photo -- means light   Synthesis --means to make

Carbon Dioxide + Water = light=> Glucose + Oxygen

                      Chemical Formula for Photosynthesis below

6CO2 + 6H2 --light -->  C6H12O6 + 6O2 

6 Carbon Dioxide Molecules 

Plus 6 Water molecules

With Light as energy source

Yields 

One molecule of glucose (sugar)

6 molecules of Oxygen

Chlorophyll is a green pigment (color) that is found in plant leaves as well as in Algae. 

What does chlorophyll do?

Chlorophyll traps the energy from sunlight and stores it as sugar.

-    All elements are pure substances…However, all pure substances are not necessarily elements.

ð Not an element but is a pure substance?? Give example (water)

ð Water molecules are made of 2 hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom..

ð Atoms bound together through chemical bonds are called molecules.

ð  

ð Types of elements

o    Metals – most elements are metals

§ Metals all have certain properties

§ Metals are usually shiny, good conductors of both heat and electricity

§ Metals are also malleable (able to be pounded into shapes) and ductile (can be drawn into wires)

o    Non-metals – all elements that are not metals are considered non-metals.

§ Non-metals can be divided into a few distinct groups

·  Metalloids are solids that act like metals in certain situations but do not have all the properties of metals.(examples Silicon, Arsenic, Germanium) metalloids

· Boron

·     Silicon

·     Germanium

·     Arsenic

·     Antimony

Notes for Physical Science


 

4.1

Properties of States of Matter

·       Solids particles locked together. Particles move…not separately but together in  unison (vibration or earthquake)

·       Liquids – particles are close together. Particles slide past each other. Volume stays the same.

·       Gases – particles have spaces in between them. Particles bounce off each other and other surfaces.(unlike liquids, gases can change in volume)

·       Plasmas – particles have so much energy that the electrons jump from the atoms and flow freely to other atoms. When electrons move from atom to atom the substance glows or gives off light.

Changes in states of matter …. What are the changes called?

Liquid looses energy and becomes a solid è FREEZING

Solid gains energy and becomes a liquid èMELTING

Liquid gains energy and becomes a Gas è VAPORIZATION (vaporization è throughout the liquid is called BOILING…only at the top of or at the surface of a liquid is EVAPORATION

An high voltage electric current is run through the gas inside a tube IONIZATION

of waves are on the electromagnetic spectrum

& know at least 3 facts about each type of wave.

open to page 77 textbook

HOMEWORK -

5 facts about X-rays

5 facts about Gamma rays

Notes

LARGE WAVE TO SMALL WAVE

RADIOWAVES - used to send TV and Communications signals.

Have frequencies from 300 GHz to as low as 3 kHz.

Radar uses radio waves

Short wave radio waves bounce off the earth's ionosphere allows radio signal to travel around world. 


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
MICROWAVES - are shorter than radiowaves.

Can be used to cook food

Still used as a form of communication

Have been used to transmit power over long distances



----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

INFRARED LIGHT WAVES-

longer wavelength than visible light.

Sensors with infrared technology are common.

Medical application (view bloodflow).

Military application ==> night vision

-Snakes such as Pit vipers and Pythons have infrared

sensing pits that allow them to "see" infrared.

-Some insects and arachnids have the ability to sense I.R.

-Vampire bats


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

VISIBLE LIGHT- Narrow spectrum of light

Plants use visible light for photosynthesis

Visible light of mixed colors is white.

We see different colors

only when white light is separated.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ULTRA VIOLET LIGHT-

we need some UV light to make vitamin D

Too much UV light can burn the skin and lead to skin cancer

Can travel through clouds

Most UV light doesn't reach us because of the ozone layer.

UV light used to kill germs


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

X RAYS

-discovered by Wilhem Rontgen of Germany in 1895

- X-ray machines to make images of  tissues and bones

- X-rays are emitted by electrons

- is a type of ionizing radiation and is harmful to living tissue

- used to kill cancer cells

- high does cause radiation sickness


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

GAMMA RAYS

-discovered by French Scientist Paul Villard in 1900

usually produced by nuclear decay

(examples such as decay of radioactive isotopes, nuclear  fission at a power plant, or during a Nuclear Explosion

exposure to gamma rays damages DNA and increases risk for developing cancer)

Chapter 13 Review

-Open books to page 384

-Learning target: to prepare for test covering material from chapter 13 and students will know that Newton’s laws of motion describe the relationship between forces and the motion of an object. (History of Life on Earth)

-Warm-up complete outline on page 395

-Classwork Notes (general throughout chapter)

-Homework tonight page 396 #1 - #12 Chapter review

-Classwork Notes (general throughout chapter)

 Newton’s 1st Law

An object in motion stays in motion unless acted upon by an outside force

An object at rest stays at rest unless acted upon by an outside force

 

Newton’s 2nd Law

Force is required to move or accelerate an object.

F = MA

 

Newton’s 3rd Law

 

For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction

I.

• Properties used to describe the

motion of an object include a reference

point, direction, speed, velocity,

and acceleration.

• Average speed can be calculated by

dividing total distance by total time.

• A change in velocity is due to a

change in speed, direction, or both.

• Speed and acceleration can be

represented on graphs.

II.

• A force is a push or a pull that acts

on an object. Forces have magnitude

and direction.

• Net force is the combined effect

of two or more forces acting on

an object.

• Balanced forces do not cause

changes in motion.

• Unbalanced forces cause changes

in an object’s velocity.

III.

• The magnitude of the force of

friction can vary.

• Kinetic friction is a force that, when

unbalanced, can change the velocity

of a moving object.

• Static friction balances an applied

force and can prevent motion.

• Friction can be both harmful and

helpful.

NOTES FOR FRIDAY'S TEST

#2 HOW ARE IONIC AND COVALENT COMPOUNDS DIFFERENT?

#2 ionic compound has bonds where one atom loses an electron and another atom gains an electron. Covalent compound…the atoms share electrons

#3 HOW ARE ACIDS AND BASES DIFFERENT?

 #3 ..

-acids increase the number of hydronium ions  when dissolved in water…

-bases increase the number of hydroxide ions when dissolved in water..

Hydronium

Ion H3O+


Hydroxide ion

OH-

ACID

BASIC

#4 what is the difference between a “pH” and an “indicator”?

#4 pH is the measure of the hydronium ion concentration in a solution.  An indicator is a substance that changes color in the presence of an  acid or a base. From red to blue it is a BASE for you!  From blue to red it is an AC-ID!!

5. Ionic compounds characteristics are:

- brittle

- conduct electricity in solution

- dissolve in water

- very high melting point

-  Usually made of a salt

(what are salts made of?.... salts are made of a metal and non-metal)

2/13/13 Life Science NOTES:

How Does DNA Copy Itself?

Before a cell divides, it makes a copy of its genetic

information. 

The pairing of bases allows the cell to replicate, or make copies of, DNA. Remember that bases

are complementary and can fit together only in certain

ways. Therefore, the order of bases on one side of the

DNA controls the order of bases on the other side. For

example, the base order CGAC can fit only with the

complementary base order GCTG.

When DNA replicates, the double helix splits in the

middle, and the pairs of bases separate. The unpaired

bases attract new complementary bases. This action

builds a new complementary strand of nucleotides on

each side of the split. Finally, two DNA molecules are

formed. Half of each one, that is, one strand, comes from

the original molecule. The other strand is built from new

nucleotides.

Learning Goal -Students will understand that Valence electrons play a role in explaining why chemical bonding occurs. The number of valence electrons an element has explains why some elements combine and some Elements do not.

Notes

Key Concept

-Atoms share, gain, or lose electrons when chemical bonds form.

-Chemical bonding is the joining of atoms to form new substances.

-Valence electrons are used to form chemical bonds.

-The number of valence electrons in an atom determines whether the atom will form bonds.

-Chemical bonds form when atoms join to form new is an interaction that holds two atoms together.

-A valence electron is an electron in the outermost energy level of an atom.

-Most atoms form bonds by gaining, losing, or sharing electrons until they have eight valence electrons.

-Atoms of some elements need only two electrons to fill their outermost level.

NOTES FROM FRIDAY'S CLASS

MNEMONIC TO REMEMBER STAGES OF CELL CYCLE

International Police Men Always Target Crime

Interphase -- Prophase -- Metaphase -- Anaphase -- Telophase -- Cytokinesis

Compare and contrast of Mitosis with Meiosis

Mitosis analogy is like a carbon copy for example if you start with 46 chromosomes... the

chromosomes need to be copied and both cells end up with 46 chromosomes

Meiosis --- is a multi-step process that involves both the reduction in the number of chromosomes

as well as genetic material being shuffled around.  For example if you start with 46 chromosomes

through meiosis the cells produced will have 23 chromosomes.  Cells produced

through meiosis are used for reproduction and are called "GAMETES"

October 9-10, 2012 Physical Science Periodic Table 

(words, phrases, & things you should be familiar with)

PERIOD - each of the rows is considered to be a different period

GROUP - column goes from top to bottom, it's called a group

The elements in a group have the same number of electrons in their 

outer electron shell.

INERT-An inert gas is a gas which does not undergo chemical reactions 

under a set of given conditions. The noble gases and nitrogen often 

do not react with many substances.

Chemical Reactivity - is an element's ability to react in a 

chemical reaction with other substances.

  • For example: Neon is inert and has a low chemical reactivity. 
  • For example: Cesium is highly reactive and explodes if it is 
  • put in direct contact with water.
