Helpful Chemistry Formulas
Density = mass/ volume (D= m/V)
Kelvin = Celsius +273
Heat trans to water = Mw * ΔTw * Cpw (specific heat of water)
Heat transferred to substance A= MA * ΔTA * CpA
Common chemical equations
H2 + O → H2O (hydrogen combines with oxygen to produce water)
CH4 + 2 O2 → CO2 + 2H2O (burning of methane)
2Na + Cl2 → 2NaCl (Sodium combines with Chloride to produce salt)
Ideal Gas Laws
pV = nRT - where P is the pressure, V is the volume of gas, n is the number of moles and R is the gas constant and T is temperature.
n=m/M - where m is the mass and M is the molar mass.

Differentiate the following equation
1) f(x) = x3
2) f(x) = (x3 + 5x + 9)
3) f(x) = (x4 + 3x2 + 10x)
4) f(x) = ex + ex
Jean Baptiste Biot pioneered early studies of heat conduction. He was born in Paris, France, on April 21, 1774.
