Ernest Rutherford and the Atoms

This biography chronicles the lifestyles and clinical paintings of the down-to-earth New Zealander who turned one of many mythical pioneers of subatomic physics. Rutherford's 3 significant discoveries-including his 1912 revelation that atoms contained nucleuses-created the sector of nuclear physics and contributed to shaping glossy technology.

The Age of Synthesis: 1800-1895 (History of Science.)

Addressing a interval within the heritage of technological know-how marked by way of nice switch, this quantity surveys the medical achievements that introduced the improvement of classical technology to a detailed and set the level for the breakthroughs of recent technological know-how within the twentieth century. overlaying such scientists as Faraday, Darwin, and Pasteur and developments in chemistry, physics, and body structure, The Age of Synthesis: 1800-1895 bargains an in-depth examine the tensions and controversies over technology in this interval, and the way society used to be stuck in the course of a few of the disputes.

34 In addition, any non-bonded pairs of electrons will repel bonded pairs, but occupy more space. This means that the bond angles are widened. 9 effect if we compare three molecules, each with four pairs of electrons — methane, 2 Aug 2010 CH4, ammonia, NH3, and water, H 2O. 5°, but Eleanor Jones ammonia has a lone pair of electrons that squeezes the H N H bond angle to 107°. 5°. 9. 9 Bond angles in methane, ammonia and water Giant molecular structures As well as forming simple molecules like those shown on the page opposite, it is possible to form giant molecular structures.

8 shows the difference between a typical alloy, such as brass, and a steel (interstitial alloy), where the small carbon atoms fit between metal atoms. 8 Structure of (a) a typical alloy and (b) a steel Metals have to be mined and separated from the waste rock. Today, most of the ores rich in metals have already been mined and we are using ores that contain much less metal. Under these circumstances it makes sense to try to recycle metals because new extraction from low-grade ores requires huge amounts of energy.

Remember that the more positive E o will be a reduction. ●● Draw anti-clockwise arrows to help predict the overall reaction. For example, consider the reaction between Fe2+ ions and chlorine gas. 59 V E o cell is positive. Therefore, when chlorine gas oxidises iron(II) ions to iron(III) ions, it is reduced to chloride ions. 63 6 Electrochemistry The effects of non-standard conditions For most of the work you will do with electrode potentials, you can assume that the conditions are standard, but you do need to know the effects of changing the concentration of the aqueous ion.
