Here is a full workbook with answers for students age 16+ for any Chemistry unit on Mass Spectrometry.
Exam questions on this topic are easy marks, but students rarely take it seriously, so I have compiled the workbook to give them plenty of exercises that support the exam style of questions.
The workbook starts with a handout explaining the operation and various stages, with a labelled diagram. Make sure that students learn the stages in the correct order and what each stage does and means in terms of theory given on the handout page.
Exercise 1 asks students to rearrange a table of operational steps into the correct order, a common exam question.
Exercise 2 asks them questions about the operation of the instrument, which checks understanding of all stages.
Exercise 3 presents calculations of relative atomic mass from m/z and abundance data for a range of elements, plus an unknown element!
Detailed answers are provided for all three exercises.
Take time on getting students to calculate the relative atomic mass properly with their calculators, they generally find this difficult so the copious practice in this workbook will help them with exam questions.
