Acids & Bases
Food Scientist and pH

- Watch the Introduction about food scientists

1. Draw a pH scale and use examples from the video.

2. What product were the food scientist concerned about?

3. What contaminant were they worried about?

4. At what pH level does food have to be for C. bot not to grow?

-Then, watch how to calibrate a pH meter, "Measuring pH"

1. Where is the probe located on a pH meter?

2. What is the two points for the calibration range on a pH meter?

Elements, Atoms, and Electrons
More Building Atoms

Use this website to build an atom.

Read the notes and watch the video.

This website has a few glitches, but the concept is solid.

- For example, the tabs won't match the element that pops up, but that is ok.  Go ahead and build your atom for your element.
