GOAL: Truly Understand Understanding cannot be a set of disparate facts that are recalled in a haphazard way to make predictions. They must be a linked map that allows one to reach the same conclusion no matter how one proceeds. Road map as a set of facts Understanding links the facts requiring

PRESSURE Force is a push or a pull. Physics tells us that these interactions between objects result in motion. (in physics motion doesn’t mean not moving it encompasses all possibilities including at rest as a state of motion) This a way to get confused because English useage refers to objects at rest as not moving. Pressure is a force per unit area. Weight is a nice force and it provides us with some reference. We can pile a stack of books up. With each new book we increase the weight. To support this weight we can stack the books on top of a set of poles or blocks (legs of a chair). The one could refer to the force needed per leg or pole or block. The walls of a space ship must be able to keep the air inside (imagine a balloon). The trick thing about pressure is that it acts in every direction. A piece of paper has a balance of pressure on each side. When you ride in an air plane you can equalize pressure and relieve pain. WHAT IS PRESSURE

= force on the earth that a KG exerts (weight=mg)

Other properties: Hardness Pliability (paper, rubber) Strength Divisibility REACTIONS Early studies tried to address the quantities of material involved. Properties of gases Mix readily Sometimes the react hydrogen and oxygen turn into water. A large volume of each turns into a small volume of water 

1 mole of a gas is about 22 liters Combining oxygen and hydrogen we have about 50 liters of material OVER SIMPLIFYING = 1 mole of water 1 mole of water = 18 grams Water has a density of 1 gm per cubic cm 1 liter is 1000 cc _{} 

These properties and reactions are grealy simplified when we understand. ELECTRIC FORCE ATOMIC NATURE QUANTUM STRUCTURE (non intuitive, at least at first)
