Holy Moley Assignment

advertisement
Holy Moley, that’s big!
Just how big is Avogadro’s constant – it’s hard to imagine!
NA= 6.02 x 1023objects/mole
Recall that in class we calculated that if you spend 1 billion dollars a second it would take 19
million years to spend 6.02 x1023 dollars.
Ex.2
If you had one mole of sand, how many Rogers Centres would that fill?
Need to know:
Calculation (given, calculations with headings, therefore statement):
How could you illustrate this?
Your task:
Create your own example to illustrate how large a mole is. Print your example on a single sided
8.5x11” sheet of paper (two dimensional). Illustrate your example with graphics, pictures etc. to
make it colourful and creative. You can use images from the internet, or draw your own. Include
where you found your information, images, etc. in your reference section.
Make the question and answer big and easy to read.
Show all your calculations and reasoning. Your calculations should be about ¼ of the page.
For any facts or data you use, state where you got your information from (list website addresses,
names of books or magazines, etc.) Use APA format (use an online APA formatter). Put your
reference list on the back of the page.
