Product Description
Atomic Structure - Atomic mass

This is a very prep-friendly lab for teachers to use when they wish to teach their students about atomic mass calculations. Students use a fictitious element called “Candium” to calculate the average atomic mass from three different isotopes. Students have practice with calculating percent abundance, average mass, and average atomic mass. Extremely helpful teacher-prep guide is also included!

Learning objectives: Your students will be able to...
•Calculate the atomic mass of a fictitious element called "candium"
•Obtain the mass number for the isotopes of "candium"

This lab activity includes:
•2-page lab activity
•Step-by-step calculations
•Organized data tables
•Post-lab questions
•Step-by-step procedure
•Teacher's prep guide
