Instructions: This is a work along tutorial. Each time you click


the mouse or touch the space bar on your computer, one step of
the problem solving occurs. Pressing the PAGE UP key will
backup the steps.
Get a pencil and
paper, a periodic
table and a
calculator, and
lets get to work.

(1-2-3) General Approach For Problem Solving:


1. Clearly identify the Goal or Goals and the UNITS involved. (What
are you trying to do?)

2. Determine what is given and the UNITS.

3. Use conversion factors (which are really ratios) and their UNITS to
CONVERT what is given into what is desired.
