Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have different ways of mapping the seasons, depending on where they live. In the south-west of Western Australia, the Noongar people’s calendar shows six bonar (seasons). Birak is a dry and hot season and falls between December and January. Bunuru is the hottest time in Western Australia’s south west and falls between February and March. Djeren is when the temperature starts to decrease and falls between April and May. Makuru is the cold and wet season and falls between June and July. Djilba is when the temperature starts to rise and fall between August and September. Kambarang is the start of the dry seasons and falls between October and November. Other Aboriginal groups in Western Australia consider different numbers of seasons depending on the subtle changes in climate across Western Australia.

To increase the concentration of the solution, you pour them into the same beaker. Decide whether you have changed the concentration or not, giving reasons for your choice.

Now let us treat elementary entities as rice grains and one cup as a mole (n). Elementary entities can include small particles such as atoms, molecules and ions. One mole contains 6.022 × 1023 of these elementary entities, Did you know? 5.3

5.5 Extension: Chemistry calculations DOC


Learning goals 1 To be able to define the Avagadro constant. 2 To be able to calculate the molar mass for an atom or compound. 3 To be able to use the mole equation to solve problems including moles and mass.

In order to measure the efficiency of chemical reactions, scientists need to know how many particles are colliding and reacting in the chemical reaction. Take the following chemical reaction for example: 2 H2 + O2 → 2 H2O By analysing the coefficients of the chemical species, we know that two hydrogen molecules will react with one oxygen molecule to produce two water molecules. However, it will be very difficult to measure exactly two hydrogen molecules and one oxygen molecule to complete this reaction! In fact, it will also be difficult on a larger scale to measure out 2 million hydrogen molecules and 1 million oxygen molecules. Scientists need an easier way to measure specific quantities of reacting particles.

the mole To make this next concept simpler, imagine that you have a bag of rice grains and you measure one cup of rice grains in a measuring cup. A measuring cup might contain 8612 rice grains; however, a recipe will not tell you to measure 8612 rice grains, but instead to measure one cup of rice. This makes measuring rice a lot easier than counting individual rice grains 8612 times!

The number of elementary entities in a mole, 6.022 × 1023, is also known as the Avagadro constant, NA, after the Italian scientist, Amadeo Avagadro. His work Figure 5.49 in the early 1800s on Amadeo Avagadro the number of atoms was born in 1776 in a given volume of in Turin, Italy. gas was an important foundation to the mole concept, which would be defined later that century. Another scientist, Jean Perrin, then named the constant after Avagadro in the early 1900s to celebrate his early influence on this field of chemistry. In 2019, the Avagadro constant was updated to be exactly 6.022 140 76 × 1023 elementary entities. However, for simplicity we will use the number 6.022 × 1023 in our calculations.

also known as the Avagadro constant (NA). Therefore, if a scientist were to now measure one mole of oxygen gas (O2), they would have 6.022 × 1023 molecules to be exact, just as one cup of rice would contain 8612 rice grains in the previous example. This relationship between the mole and the Avagadro constant can be expressed mathematically: Number of moles =

mole 6.022 × 1023 elementary entities

Or n (mol) =

number of elementary entities −1 NA(mol )

1 Substitute values into the equation and solve. Figure 5.48 Imagine if recipes required you to count individual grains of rice!


number of elementary entities NA 24

3.011 × 10 atoms = 5 mol 6.022 × 1023 atoms mol−1

To solve for the number of moles, substitute the number of atoms as the number of elementary entities and the Avagadro constant, 6.022 × 1023, for NA.

2 Rearrange the equation to solve for number of molecules. number of elementary entities = n × NA = 0.5 mol × 6.022 × 1023 mol−1 = 3.011 × 1023 entities or molecules

How mosquitoes hunt If you have ever been out on a warm summer night near water, you may have been bitten by a mosquito. Mosquitoes are found in the phylum Arthropoda. They have many specialised sensory organs that allow them to detect the presence of food, in your case, blood. In fact, it is only the female mosquito that feeds on blood as they need it to develop their eggs. You are an easy target as you do not have a thick layer of fur to protect your skin. Mosquitoes can sense the carbon dioxide that you breathe out from up to 50 metres away and will follow it, knowing that a human is nearby, until it leads to their target. When they are less than one metre away, they will then use both their vision and a special thermal sensor to detect their prey.

STEM activity

STEM activity: Designing and prototyping a ferry background information Ferries are used worldwide to connect two or more points (e.g. Elizabeth Quay Ferry in Perth). They carry passengers, goods, and sometimes vehicles and machinery. Ferries are vital for transport in many developing countries, since highways are expensive to build and most waterways come free. Without ferries, whole populations in the Amazon Forest would not be able to communicate, get access to food and goods or even have contact with the modern world.

Ferries, like boats, ships and canoes, float in water as a result of buoyancy. Any object placed in water will either sink or float, and that outcome is related to the density of that object (the amount of mass in a certain volume). If an object is denser than water, it will usually sink, and if it is less dense, it will float. But how can a steel ship, capable of carrying thousands of passengers and cars, float in the ocean when a metal ring or coin would sink in your bathtub? It is time to investigate how design can affect the buoyancy of a ferry!



Design brief: Design and construct a ferry boat.

Activity instructions In teams (maximum of 3 people), you will design and construct a ferry capable of transporting a payload between two points (return trip). Your team has been assigned the task of designing and constructing a ferry for riverside communities to transport people and goods on the water. As an engineer, you should investigate the science and technology of boats.

Nuclear fusion occurs when two atoms combine (or fuse) to create a new element. Because it is so hot inside the cores of stars, hydrogen nuclei have enough energy to overcome the electrostatic repulsion between their protons. They fuse together to form helium and an enormous amount of energy is released in the process.

This is called the B‑V colour index. The lower (or more negative) the number, the bluer the star, and the higher (or more positive) the number, the redder the star. Rigel, a large blue star, has a B-V colour index of –0.03, for example. Betelgeuse, a large red star, has a B-V colour index of 1.85.

Light from stars All stars emit a full range of wavelengths from the visible spectrum (colours). This means you would observe a complete rainbow if you were to split the star’s light into different colours using a prism. However, a star’s spectrum peaks at a certain colour, and this is the colour that we observe the star to be. You will notice that there are no green stars listed in the spectral class system. There actually are stars whose spectrum peaks are in the green part of the spectrum, but their total combination of colours emitted appears white to our eyes.
