About This Chapter
Chemical Monitoring & Management - Chapter Summary
While studying these lessons, you can heighten your understanding of chemical monitoring and management. You will review key topics like chemical occupations and how chemists collaborate. This chapter can also help you understand how LeChatelier's principle is used. After reviewing the lessons, you should be ready to do the following:
- Discuss the role of a chemist
- Recall the process of monitoring chemical reactions
- List common sources of ammonia
- Explain how ammonia is synthesized
- Discuss commercial uses of the Haber process
- Describe how the flame test is used to identify metal ions
- Recount uses of atomic absorptions spectroscopy
The lessons in this chapter can help you quickly get up to speed on chemical monitoring and management. You'll find key vocabulary words highlighted in bold print for easy reference and review. If you get stuck on a topic, you can submit questions to our instructors.
1. What is a Chemist? - Definition & Overview
Medicine? Check. Education? Check. Finance? Check. You can work in all of those fields if you are a chemist. Find out what a chemist is, what some branches of chemistry are, and what you can do as a chemist.
2. Monitoring Chemical Reactions: Process & Example
How do chemists tell when a chemical reaction is complete? In this lesson, we will be learning about how the progress of a reaction is monitored by studying a specific process and example reaction.
3. What is Ammonia? - Formula & Sulfate
This lesson describes the molecular compound ammonia. Common sources of ammonia and the chemical bonding, simple reactions, and uses of one particular compound, ammonium sulfate, are included in the discussion.
4. Synthesis of Ammonia: Process & Reaction
This lesson helps you to understand how ammonia is synthesized industrially. You'll also learn the conditions that are required for the Haber process to take place.
5. The Haber Process: Commercial Uses & Chemistry
The Haber Process makes getting nitrogen from the atmosphere a possibility. This lesson will describe the Haber Process before discussing some of the challenges ammonia manufacturers must overcome when using the Haber Process.
6. Using Flame Tests to Identify Metal Ions
In this lesson, we'll be learning how to use the flame test to identify different metal ions. By the end, you'll be able to explain how to do the test and predict which metals will produce which color flames.
7. Atomic Absorptions Spectroscopy: Definition & Uses
In this lesson we discuss how atomic absorption spectroscopy works and the important role it plays in understanding the potential health effects of trace metal contamination.
