Lesson 1 Activity 2 - Preview the model
- Watch the video introduction to the chemical reaction base model
- Run the base model and make observations
- Reflect on abstractions made in the model
- Check your understanding
Watch the introduction to the Chemical Reaction base model
Run the base model and make observations
Using the Model Observation form examine the base model, www.slnova.org/GUTS/projects/
Reflect on the abstractions made in the model
In a balanced chemical equation format:
2 AgNO3 (aq) + Cu (s) ---> Cu(NO3)2 (aq) + 2 Ag (s)In the model, which atoms and compounds are represented? Also, how do the atoms and compounds move?
Additional background information:
Reflect on the relationship between the model of the chemical reaction and the real-world demonstration. What parts of the real-world demonstration were captured in the model? What are some differences? Post your reflections in your portfolio in the section "Reflections->Computer Modeling and Simulation" under the heading "Chemical reaction demo".
